I'm sorry for the incredible bad images, my hobby isn't really photography. I just wanted to post pictures of my neps, instead of always asking everyone to show of theirs, thought i could grab my chance as I was watering. Also, I guess I'll use this thread to update on my plants as well as the...
Allen Lowrie's Carnivorous Plants of Australia: Magnum Opus (2013) lists some 241 species of carnivorous plants at the time of publication. 163 of those are Drosera. Of these 29 are newly named. Some are new species formally described for the first time. Some were renamed as the "true" species...
Since this wasn't shared before by members who have previously had Lowrie's Magnum Opus (published Nov 2013) I thought I'd post a summary of some of the taxonomic changes and new species of Tuberous Drosera published in the work.
Please note the old names are still valid and it is up to you if...

Natural light levels
Bright light all day without direct sunlight on plants.
All of my Neps are in natural light so I took readings using a light meter. The first reading was taken at 10am and by 4pm, the light level has gone up by at least 2000 lux at the shadiest spot and at the...
Since I made such a big deal last year about going the seed route I thought I should a at the very least post a few pictures of the results:
Nepenthes ampullaria 'Red'
Spider mites had the growth top webbed over before I realized I had a problem but after treatment it is back and producing...
Been away for several months so I thought I would stop in with some information on the seeds I planted in late Fall 2012. The seeds and seedlings that did the best were the rafflesiana's and ampullaria's. I wound up with one hirsuta and two albomarginata's. The aristolochioides produced a half...

Hi, thought I finally make a thread about my plants. I mainly grow lowlanders in 2 terrariums. The main one is lucky reptile measured about 80 x 50 x 100 cm (2.7 x 1.6 x 3.2 ft) and the second consists of 2 Ikea glass cabinets combined into one at about 160 x 80 x 30 cm (2.7 x 5.3 x 1 ft). Main...
After 3-4 months of filming, the seed pods have cracked open and the time lapse for the female N. Hirsuta X Tiveyi & N. thorelii X truncata X campunalata is now complete. Despite the large size of the N. Hirsuta X Viveyi seed pods, no viable seeds were created from what I can tell. Ironically...

I don't think I did this already but if I'm wrong please update me! I am participating in a discussion string about species threatened with extinction and eBay sellers poaching so consider me spanked:-( and no need to bring that up here . Everything I have or are in transit were acquired prior...
It took four+ weeks but the first 4 planted of the 14 subspecies are germinating now, it will be some time before I can tell if they sent what they advertised but I can say that the seeds all looked different. Now I have to order in a lens adapter for my Fujifilm S2950 so I can do some...
