  1. Utricularia campbelliana--cultivation in moss

    I had an idea a while back, and I was wondering if it makes any sense and if anyone has tried anything like it.

    Utricularia campbelliana seems to do best for many people when it's either mounted...

    Wow, ok. I had assumed highland from the description on the myrmecophyte forum where there's the picture of a wild specimen and a description of it being from "the mountains around Malaybalay." But...

    Hydnophytum sp. Malaybalay

    Does anybody grow this plant? It's an antplant from Wistuba. I've had mine for maybe a year and a half, and it's grown lots of roots and expanded the caudex a bit but doesn't seem to like to keep...

    Usually yes. I think there are some predatory species but they're much rarer.

    I don't think the plant cares much about winter temperatures as long as they're sub-zero (it sits under snowpack in habitat so it never has to tolerate crazy low temperatures), but I bet the plant is...

    This Drosophyllum appears to be addicted to flowering! I believe it is time for an intervention.

    Depending on how much money you're willing to spend, Nepenthes tenuis is fairly tubby (if small) and I've also found it quite easy.

    tl;dr does anyone grow Pinguicula in straight gypsum, and if so, where do you get it?

    I had noticed that many cacti looked very different in cultivation and in the wild, and also that I found the...

    I can't imagine an ant doing that--leafcutter ants don't leave those kinds of holes, to my knowledge, and other ants don't collect or eat leaves. Other than that I have no suggestions.

    Ah, you're right--I didn't realize there was a difference between stolons and rhizomes. Sarracenia does produce rhizomes, though, I think.

    I'm pretty sure they grow from stolons, which ends up looking like clumping. If you just wait yours will clump too.

    Tiny seeds

    I'm doing a project with some Stylidium, and some of the seeds are just miniscule. Even the biggest species have seeds smaller than a millimetre, and the smallest can't be more than 500 microns. I...
