    Holland Red, B52, Green Dragon and ARPC

    Jeff, Thank you I do take it as a compliment. Generally when I post I like to use decorum and proper etiquette before I ask a question but that's just me. Again thank you and I'm glad you like "ARPC." Giovanni

    Holland Red, B52, Green Dragon and ARPC

    Thank you Capensis for the compliment! "ARPC' is a Dionaea clone that originated from the breeding program of Best Carnivorous Plants in Europe. What makes this cultivar distinct is that it is a robust semi compact growing plant with blood-red traps, red teeth, and sometimes a red line outside...

    These are some pictures that I took over the week. This is Holland Red with a typical. Both plants were planted at the same time and same growing conditions. Interesting how the typical is much larger and flowering. Holland Red again. Baby B52. I'm hoping for 2 inch traps. Green...

    Ortho orthenex

    I used Ortho Orthenex on my Dionaea last week and it seems to be working fine with no ill affect on my plants. Make sure to spray your plants and then rotate them and spray again, making sure to spray under the leafs of the Dionaea. Hope this help. Giovanni

    Nepenthes Madagascariensis

    Jimmy, Excellent post and pictures! Nepenthes Madagascariensis is the only CP that I grow that is not a Dionaea and I've had the same plant since 2001. It's a great grower and I just love it. Giovanni

    Any desert growers?

    Hi Hightsky, You should have no problem growing Dionaea in SLC. I live in Prescott, Arizona which is 6000 feet above sea level and my Dionaea are doing good even though the humidity level here is very low. In my opinion humidity is way over rated as far as Dionaea. As far as basic care...

    I Can't Believe I'm About To Ask This But..... Can I Get An ID On This?

    JayJay, xvart is right, the status of cultivars of Dionaea is very sketchy at best. Because of this, it is better to just call the plant a typical. Giovanni

    Spring time stall?

    Fryster, Sorry for the late post. I may have a division available from my Big Mouth in case yours dies. One of my Red Dragons looks exactly like yours and I'm almost 100% sure you are over watering. If your problem ends up being Spider Mites then I would recommend Ortho Orthenex. It is a...

    Hi, With regards to the main plant, I think you should be okay. Last month I divided my Fang Dionaea plant splitting the rhizome into 3 parts. One part had no roots at all. Much to my surprise, one month latter the division that had no roots is doing great. Just make sure you give your plant...
