    The color seems to have more rajah in it now, so who knows, maybe it is a rajah x veitchii after all. At least that is what I...

    I have one, but I'm not sure it is a rajah x veitchii. It has just started forming adult-ish pitchers, and I swear it looks more like robcantleyi x veitchii or something.

    Things should be more...
  3. Update: fail

    I forgot about the seeds for a long time and somehow the media in the containers dried out! It still looked transparent, so I couldn't make out from looking, but when I picked them, the media seemed...

    Just read this ancient thread again

    I do hope someone was able to help you out Rob. No mean task to face a rajah invasion. :-))

    The nights seem to be a bit on the cold side for ampullaria? Had one I lost to an accident, but it used to thrive when warm and wet. Slowed even in Mumbai winters (though not stalled) - which won't...

    Mine isn't doing anything much other than leaves dying back and that tiny pimple like thing that will probably form an offshoot(?) branch(?). Growing tips look fine so far. One of the plants will...

    So those drosera magnifica died as expected, but I got more. The day temperatures are still over 30deg C here. Nights go down to 24 or so. They are doing.... sort of ok. The leaves they arrived with...

    oops, posted in wrong thread accidentally, but since we don't seem to have one, leaving these pics here for now. If we have a thread, I'll move this there.

    Most of my nepenthes are still small,...

  10. How to make cuttings of species with very short internodes?

    Been trying to figure this one out. I'm not in urgent need of this information, but given that I seem to have splurged on veitchiis and their hybrids, a robcantleyi, truncata... (too small still to...

    I got mine from BCP too, but I don't think they are going to make it. Strangely, they did fine in the insane hot temperatures, and declined within two days after temperatures dropped after the rains...

    Anyone growing drosera magnifica?

    I'm trying to grow them. They arrived, potted them up in the best sphagnum I had... and then a whole lot of nothing happening for 2 weeks. Some leaves are drying, but looks like the usual slight die...

    I found some more seeds I'd set aside. I'll do another batch of TC tonight and this time I'll keep them in the dark for a week or so like @Big Bella suggested. Other than these seeds - I guess it is...

    I had a minor accident that led to one of the TC containers falling to the floor and cracking open. I took the seeds out and rinsed them and have them soaking in water to sterilize and put in TC...

    Most of the seeds on sphagnum had at least one seed germinating slightly over 2 weeks. It is still one day short of 3 weeks.

    No action in vitro, but not worried yet. From all accounts it seems to...

    Yes. Being patient as long as it takes to see germination unless there is contamination - in which case I am prepared to replate the seeds if I can. The delayed germination may also be because my...

    Don't know about "clumping", but both drosera capensis and binata have grown new growth points next to existing ones. This eventually results in multiple plants, of course, but it isn't very clump...

    4 seeds of nepenthes maxima "giant wavy" germinating on sphagnum. Nothing in TC yet. No fungus, no germination. But some seeds seem.... swollen.

    Several other nepenthes seeds are also starting to...

    I have germination in the drosera seeds planted on sphagnum. Nothing in the TC. Neither contamination nor germination. No germination of nepenthes in sphagnum either.

    I spent some time observing the plant earlier. The strange thing hasn't developed into anything, but there is dew on the inside of the cup like thing. Also strange is that the short leaf at 9 o'clock...

    BigBella, these are seeds sowed on the same day on sphagnum. The in vitro ones are now almost two weeks in the container and there is neither fungus nor germination.

    Odd leaf/stalk on pinguicula aphrodite

    Just now saw a strange stalk kind of thing on my pinguicula aphrodite. There isn't a flower - it is just a cup kind of a thing at the end of the stalk. Anyone know what is going on? Excuse how it...
