Dear CP growers!
Past 2 weeks I have been deflasking and started to acclimatize many sundew species from in vitro.
Most of then grew well in various tested nutrient media, some test have been performed with hormones and with colloidal silver. Here I would like to share several pictures with...
Just would like to invite you to check out my new online store specialized in drosera species stationed in Prague, Czech Republic.
I cant send plants to the USA but if you find yourself moving to EU or need some seeds you can take a look at it :)
I hope you like it i have never...
Hi, CP enthusiasts!
It has been some time since I posted here. I have been busy (amongst other things) with building my PCB greenhouse where I keep most of my plants now. All spring I have been deflasking, acclimatizing and potting up the plants and now the collection starting to look nicer. I...
Here I would like to share with you pics of TC jars

Nepenthes benstonei (on this medium doestn produce pitchers, they develop...
Dear CP/TC fans!:-)
I took shots of some new cultures in jars today. Besides the species, that I have already posted (and thankfully, are grown into big plants by now), I did some sowing on gel few months ago and would like to share with you the pics of seedlings and plantlets:
We have had some pretty weather for last few weeks. The cool temps at night and plenty of sun and warm days really made my sundews happy (especially the south americans). here I took some shots today,,hope you like them :-)
drosera graomogolensis (definitely one of the most elegant and...
I took pictures of some drosera jars today:
drosera anglica 'Hawaii'
drosera falconeri (crowded jar)
drosera hilaris (turned out to be very weedy species when correct medium is used)
drosera spatulata var. lovellae...
Hi , CP enthusiasts!
Today as I was checking my plants in the evening I thought about how beautiful this CP genus is and felt like taking some quick random picturesbefore it gets dark. They are mostly of regularly cultivated species, nevertheless I think they look fit at the peak of this...
Hi! After a while, I had some spare time so I took pictures of some of my newly introduced drosera species in TC. Here are some jars, I hope you like them:
drosera hartmeyerorum (note the extensive root system)
drosera marchantii ssp. marchantii
I thought it would be nice to share the outcome of my experiments with supplemented MS medium on some drosera species in vitro. It is well known that the presence of aminoacids in tissue culture media can promote the growth of the plants in a very significant manner (e.g. glycine...
Hi there! I have some new pictures from my minilab I would like to share with you. I hope you like them:-)

It has been some time since I posted pictures here, so I uploaded fresh photos of few plants of mine. February is the shortest month, but the longest and hardest for me, since I wait for the spring so impatiently. :-) Plants like these help me get through it:-) (Some are new species to my...
Here I report what has happened in my test jars filled with gelrite-gelled media and some species, apx. 1 month growth on such medium:
First, here is my control jar of weedy d.capensis. The proliferative growth shows that the composition of the medium should be fine for common drosera...
I would like to share some info and pics of my new TC jars. I have had issues with food store grade agar last fall and because several batches shifted the pH of the media several points up, I have lost some cultures. That was the last straw for me and I decided to upgrade my TC work to...
I would like to share with you some pics I took today. Enjoy:-)

Hi there! I took pictures of pygmies today as I moved them inside for the winter. They took night temps around 5C well, but now the forecast says frosts, which would be too much for them to cope with. I hope you like them!:-)
