    Drosera Regia reddish / fuchsia flowers - King Sundew Flower Color Variation

    Viability of pollen over time

    After a bit of digging, I found online that Drosera pollen, at least for tuberous plants, is viable for at least 3-4, maybe 5 weeks. I also know from experience that pollen is usually usable on (south african) plants for a few days after flowering but I have no experience keeping it in the...

    Tuberous Drosera Cuttings

    Hey all, Ran across this (below link) from the VCPS, wondering if anyone else has tried propagating tuberous species through cuttings. I have D. zigzagia flowering and waiting to strike from a leaf cutting at the moment. I'm curious about specifics on pollination, sowing, and cuttings for that...

    Drosera flowering

    Is there something in particular that causes drosera capensis to flower? Certain number of hours of daylight or an over abundance of food? I brought my plants inside for the winter 2 weeks ago (zone 8) and put them in my grow tent only to have them explode into flower again, some plants with...

    D. Paradoxa, D. Burmannii, D. Indica, Neph

    Flickr Newcomers. Glad they can join me. I just hope the burmannii will still be OK after flowering... Its quite risky but the energy was spent anyways. I will just hope the seeds can work out because it seems my hand was quite bad with seeds..... I don't know what kind of drosera in the...

    U. resupinata cultivation

    Hello! I just got a plug of this in the mail and was wondering whether anyone here has some cultivation tips. From what I've read it's somewhere between a terrestrial and an affixed aquatic. The photos online seem to show it sometimes growing submerged with a cm or two of water, and sometimes in...

    Amorphophallus konjac Bulbs

    I have 3 Amorphophallus konjac bulbs up for trade. One is a fatty, the other two are young, but growing. I got the big one a while ago from DragonsEye (so you know they are the real deal) and the small ones came off the fatty. They have not flowered for me yet, but the big one should flower...

    Hello everyone. After looking online for quite a while, I found some growers tried using coconut husk chips along with sphagnum moss as a media for Droseras, but never found any results. Well, here I am to say what are MY results using a soil composed of 4/10 coco chips, and 6/10 long fiber...

    P. chilensis

    Here is a photo of my P. chilensis. You can see some seedlings, that are likely from a seed pod which I forgot to harvest. One of the amazing traits of this plant is that it is completely autogamous! The flowers of P. chilensis are very short, the stalk can be sessile like mine, or a few cm...

    Arisaema candidissimum

    A couple of this year's flowering plants of Arisaema candidissimum. This one has the advantage of having quite a pleasant fragrance, the other Arisaema don't appear to have any, at least none that I have noticed. That's a big bonus over many other Aroids Excuse the green background, it was...

    Roughly five months ago I took a cutting from a huge Miranda, neglected the cutting and never got around to planting it. Checked it today and it's flowering! Plenty of roots on it and I plan on potting it soon, should I snip the flower? Can I do anything with the flower even if I don't have...
