I have grown H. minor x heterodoxa outdoors in my bog garden betwenn Sarracenia (during summer, of course) and it did very well.
This year I had put it into an open greenhouse direct into the sun after growing them in a terrarium with only artificial light. It turned more red (within very short...
In my experience Dr. regai does not like tempeartures below 10°C for longer periods. If temperature falls below this the plant will loose its leafes.
Also my plants do not like full sun and heat(! in summer, they are growing better in semi shaded areas during summer.
If seedlings younger...
phantastic picture (and phantastic plant) !
"...It's an itty bitty baby...only 3 inches across..."
3 inch? You don't know what a really small plant is, hmmm....
Mine is 1 1/2 years old and still less than 2 inches across. I believe that the nights in my terrarium are defintly to warm for it to...
here is a picture of my Utricularia flaccida.
This species produces a lot of sticky glue drops on its flower stalks, which sometimes can catch small flies.
The reason _why_ these drops are produced is unknown to me.
"...I may use a couple of low-energy lights to add an extra hour to the start and end of each day in winter as well..."
I would NOT recommend to lengthen the natural photoperiod time in winter but to add strong artificial light (sodium vapor or metal halide) during the middle of the day...
habitat of R. gorgonias (near Hermanus) stays mostly wet, habitat of R. dentata (around Clan William) is dry during summer.
I sow the seeds on the surface of the substrat with good contact to it, but do not bury them.
If you understand German (or have a translation tool) you can try out...
I think that it also depends on the "quality" of the seeds.
One time I harvested lots of very small R. gorgonias seeds and none of them germinated.
I also recogniced some diffenence in R. dentata seeds from South Africa (silverhill seeds) and from Germany. The seeds from natural habitat have...
I own two clones of U. quelchi and I'm growing both of them in pure living sphagnum in my "highland-terrarium".
The person from whom I got my first clone had grown his plants in his greenhouse in sphagnum with relativ low humidity and lots of sun. Leafes had been shorter, redisgh and more...
