    All Things Petiolaris

    Mona - Just watch out for fungus growth. I grew mine in a tank for the longest time with little airflow and only saw fungus a bit. Usually adding a fan will fix that. Falconeri and kenneallyi are the only two I've had that seem to be a bit more sensitive to fungal attack. Especially on the...

    All Things Petiolaris

    Higher humidity will boost growth but is not necessary. I moved all of my plants into my new hothouse but have yet to pipe in humidity and have seen some decent decline. Even in the last week since I shut the ventilation down, my fulva has already produced slightly larger leaves (the filter was...

    LF: Southern D. rotundifolia seeds or plants

    Long time no talk man! I have some rotundifolia coming from overseas relatively soon. My current seed stock is basically: filiformis trayci, venusta, nidiformis, affinis, madagascariensis, regular capensis, white capensis, and capillaris x intermedia. Not all of those are necessarily temperate...

    Question for those experienced with ultrasonic foggers...

    Something to also note about ultrasonic foggers is they are very good at atomizing everything. That includes all the tiny bacteria, algae, and other gunk in the water. I couldn't figure out why I kept having trouble in my nepenthes chest freezer until that finally dawned on me. I had just tossed...

    Question for those experienced with ultrasonic foggers...

    In my large 10 head fogger chamber I just use a float valve that's plumbed into my RO unit. Keeps it at a constant level and my controller I designed kicks it on and off. It is in one of those under the bed totes so I will add hydrogen peroxide to it occasionally to keep bacteria growth down...

    Cephalotus ' Dudley Watts ' or Cephalotus " Double Ribbed" ? Which one?

    As much as I love Cephalotus, I have just learned to take the cultivar names with a grain of salt. There are simply too many variables to guarantee each Cephalotus will act exactly the same from one grower to the next. The species seems rather stubborn on sticking to its original state rather...

    misc cell phone pics

    Yea Lulu I wouldn't worry about them taking over your space anytime soon. They take a couple years before they even do any space taking. As an example here is my macrophylla in a 3.5" pot from April of last year: (Sorry for posting photos in your photo thread Butch!) Here it is in April of...

    Planting Cephalotus leaf pullings

    I'll third that. I have actually experimented with my leaf pullings and left them in the live sphag to see how they do (instead of repotting). So far the ones in the live sphag each have around 6-7 pitchers where the one with only a tiny amount of live sphag and peat/sand only has a couple. I...

    Anthony needs your help diagnosing his Nepenthes (NOT FOR ME)

    Swords is right. Just went out to the greenhouse and wiped a little off. It was always on the older leaves so just assumed it was moving towards a higher wax stage. The plants were doing that too, you just don't see it at white flaky stuff :)

    Anthony needs your help diagnosing his Nepenthes (NOT FOR ME)

    I always thought the flaking look was from the waxy coating of the leaf. I will see it occasionally when acclimating plants as they transition to lower or higher humidity levels.
