    I use it in a mixture with other things. I've recently tried using it to grow seedlings, as it can be soaked in boiling water to sterilise it, and I've found it works very well. Keeps the rate of...

    I've got some tips on my website. Obviously there are big differences in highland and lowland seed, and I specialise in highland species. Seedlings will grow in very low light levels for many months,...

    Tentaculata are not hard to grow, it's just that they need high humidity to pitcher well. There are lowland forms, intermediate forms and highland forms. I've grown several highland forms from seed...

    Possible. There aren't that many flowering Trusmadiensis around, there are a couple here in Australia, a couple in Germany. I don't know if Jeff Shafer's is at that size yet.

    I've found it intolerant of constant warm temperatures, especially at night. It grows best as a highlander.

    Robin, we always love your pics. The more I see it, the more I'm convinced that particular Wistuba macrophylla clone is a hybrid. The BE clone shows oyu what pure macrophylla should look like.
