As of 1/6/16 I've been growing carnivores for a little over a year. I have a modest collection still, but it is ever growing. I figured it was time to finally start a grow list. I want to thank the members of this forum, as they have helped me grow my collection with giveaways and trades...
Hello everyone, I decided to post my grow list. As you can see I am mostly into Nepenthes and tropical Pinguicula. I will add some pictures soon!
Typical (seed grown)
burmannii 'Humpty Doo'...
(Let's see if this gains any more traction than my previous couple giveaways, lol.)
Up for grabs are several P. esseriana, anywhere from .75-1.5" diameter.
Start a numbered list. Winners will be responsible for paying shipping costs; $6 in concealed cash sent to my address. This will be...
I am looking for P. agnata red leave form and P. laueana crimson flower.
I have extra plant of following for trade. Thank you!
P. agnata true blue
P. esseriana x emarginata
P. ehlersiae x oblongiloba
Decided to start a new pic thread since it's been awhile since I updated pics here (although regulars in chat will have probably seen most of them at one point or another).
Guess we'll start with the indoor stuff:
Half of the large terrarium, full of Sarr seedlings from seed sown last year...
As the title says, I'm looking for D. linearis. Doesn't have to even be a mature plant. Seeds, seedlings, strikes, or even fresh cuttings are welcome; I can root them myself. Just looking to own a specimen or two of the species.
I have a few things to trade, but not much.
Several plants in my collection were burnt badly. A few mesembs and pinguicula. I expect the pinguicula to die, but I would still like to try to revive them. The pinguicula are 'aphrodite', esseriana, and cyclosecta. the mesembs are ihlenfeldtia vanzylli, pleiospilos nelii, and lithops...
As the title says. I'm not picky as to species, even if it's a NoID (though known parentage is preferable to satiate my label OCD).
Any plant or leaf-pullings that exhibit noticeable pink and/or purplish hues in the leaves will fit the bill.
Up for trade are:
VFT 'Akai Ryu' (approx. 1.5"...
I had a rough winter, for a variety of reasons and am trying to get some plants back into the collection:
I lost all of my VFT's and cobra lily, D. adelae, D. prolifera, D. falconeri, D. ordensis,... spatulata, capillaris,
rotundifolia, intermedia, burmannii. gypsicola, cyclosecta, gracilis...
For my birthday, someone was kind enough to send two pings:
and Pinguicula esseriana
Now I have a collection of four, inculding P. cyclosecta and P. koehres.
I planted them in the same all mineral substrate as my first two pings (70% turface 30% sand 0.05% Fe203) and...
Up for auction is a small plantlet of Pinguicula esseriana.
This Mexican ping is about as hard as the rest of them (not very). When mature it has cute pink leaves with rolled up margins. You are bidding on one of the plantlets in this clump, which is about the size of a dime. If the bidding...
D. Anglica Hawaii (sundewman)
D. Capensis "Albino"
D. Capensis "Red" (from bunboy)
D. Capensis "Typical"
D. Capensis "Broad leaf" (from SDCPs)
D. Ultramafica x Spatulata
D. Binita Dichtoma (from bunboy)
I am assuming they are turning into smaller succulent leaves. So that's the cue to reduce watering. BUT MAN, they look so different compared to when they first arrived Sept and in October. Since I'm a first time grower I don't really know if i'm doing things right. So need expert opinions...
Soooooo, I made the mistake to choose my Pings based on looks.
I read in Savage Garden that Esseriana is a tropical ping. Pirouette is a hybrid and I couldn't find Tina anywhere.
It also says temperate shouldn't go on a windowsill. So, I just want to make sure this three pings are compatible...
I am under the impression that they are very easy to grow. I'll prob keep them in doors in the kitchen with filtered sunlight through out the day. If i follow general ping directions there shouldn't be many surprises right?
