    Cephalotus rhizome cutting in wood pulp

    A number of weeks ago I brought my Cephalotus in from outside, the largest of which had a flower stalk which had finished flowering. Being rather lazy, I decided to just pull the stalk out, rather than cut it, which resulted in me pulling out a length of rhizome, a pitcher and some leaves...

    Cephalotus in TC Media . . .

    Every other year or so, I divide up my Cephalotus plants and take a few leaf and rhizome cuttings; and here is a tiny piece suspended in 1/2 strength MS media, now exhibiting new growth. Apologies for the blurred second photo; or as my father once said, "It's a poor worker who blames his tools ...

    A few Cephalotus...

    I thought I would share some photos of those darn Cephalotus that either do well or do nothing... for me I seem to have finally gotten them to "Do well" over the last year.... What works for some, does not always work for others so if you ask for advice, dont be upset if it doesnt bring you good...

    Dormancy in the tropics

    Perhaps one of the most annoying and frustrating thing for a grower like me staying riiiiight at the equator line of the earth's circumference is dormancy of CPs. It's FRUSTRATING to try growing sarras for a year or two and then they just shrink and....usually die. I've heard of fridge dormancy...

    S. purpurea hasn't put up new leaves yet! (plus ID)

    Hey everyone, My S. purpurea surprised me early this spring by sending up two gorgeous flowers (being new to carnivorous plants, this was pretty exciting for me), but I'm a bit concerned because it has not put up any new pitchers, nor do I see signs of new ones forming near the rhizome yet...

    Making space - Seed-Grown Darlingtonia (original growth points and stolon cuttings)

    Up for grabs here are Darlingtonia from my first batch of seed planted winter '05 (I think.) Many of the original-growth rosettes are from pots I planted in live sphagnum which were subsequently smothered for a few years and therefore may still be somewhat dwarfed, but all the plants I intend to...

    Mostly putting feelers out for this one. I have one division of Leah with two or more well-established growth points, and another with one mature growth point and a particularly large rhizome that may produce more points this season (fingers crossed.) Material from Brooks himself, won from the...

    Spring update D:

    Hello everyone, figured I'd pop in and post a small update from the Mediterranean now that we're finally having some nice spring weather. I'm happy to say that nearly all my CPs made it through their first winter and are slowly waking up :banana2: I did lose one Sarracenia, but considering it...

    Massive plant dieoff

    I thought I was an experienced grower, and I am. But I learned I wasn't as experienced as I thought previously. I lost around 99% of my temperate carnivores this last winter due to root rot. :-( To prevent their soil from being waterlogged during dormancy, I punched a drainage hole in the side...

    Sarracenia division

    Today I was dividing my Leah Wilkerson and the rhizome was really big and long. The problem was that most of the rhizome was old and there was no growth on the side of the rhizome. I cut off this part and repotted it. Will the new division with only roots grow into a new plant?

    Rot... not sure what to do

    Well, I just lost my favorite flava ornata clone from Prince George Co, VA. I dug it up because I noticed the phyllodia were turning brown along with the main growth point. Sure enough, the entire rhizome was mush. My excellens giant is not looking good either (see attached pictures). Is it...
