    Flooded Cephalotus

    Some people like to grow Cephalotus in aerated, well drained soil, containing all sorts of materials.

    Utricularia campbelliana growing on a car cleaning sponge

    A couple of years ago I wondered if a sponge could be used as a growing medium. Figuring that it was perhaps a little too 'sterile' I set about growing some moss on it. My U campbelliana had been multiplying well in a more traditional growing medium, which unfortunately started to succumb to a...

    Water Rooted Cephalotus in Hydroculture.

    Having water rooted a Cephalotus leaf, I placed it in a wood pulp product. I'm not sure that this can be strictly considered as hydroculture, but it's certainly not a traditional growing medium :grin:

    Aberdeenshire, Scotland, bog visit

    I spent a wonderful afternoon exploring a couple of the local bogs here in Aberdeenshire, Scotland, with a fellow UK CP grower. Here's a few pictures I took: We saw mostly D. rotundifolia: This was one of the few D. anglica we seen. They had a preference to grow directly on the peat...

    Water rooting Cephalotus leafs?

    Has anyone here tried water rooting Cephalotus leafs? Some of us over on CPUK have tried with success. Basically, it involves placing a Cephalotus leaf pulling in a tub or zip lock bag containing deionised water, where it floats on the surface.

    Heliamphora...what a difference light can make...

    I have a hardened H. minor, that grows happily outside of a terrarium and without any special humidity or temperature control. I have been growing it on a windowsill and last time I repotted I took a division off it and put it under one of my lamps, on my open grow shelf. Here's a comparison...

    U. longifolia flower stalks early this year

    My U. longifolia typically puts up flower stalks in early spring and flowers throughout the summer, but this year it has started early. I've suspected that slightly warmer weather might be the flowering trigger, but this year has dispelled that theory, as it is the coldest it has been so far...
