I'm looking to add a new plant to my little collection... why not a mexican butterwort?
specifically, i would LOVE a Pinguicula laueana, but really, something like P. moctezumae or P. moranensis i would gladly accept.
things i have to trade are:
Once I was in a store and there was a corner in which some really strange plants were standing.
They shall eat meat or something like that and they are probably dangerous. No risc no fun. I took one of the glistening with the sticky leaves.
About 10 years later ......
I need help identifying/confirming I.D. of this plant. It will be the first two pictures.
I believe its a potulacaria afra can anybody confirm this. Any input is appreciated
Thanks Abel A.
after having a great day around the Gifberg we traveled back South to Tulbagh. On this way we wanted to take the opportunity to take a look on a location close to Nieuwoudtville we discovered in 2009.
The day was almost as nice as the day before on Gifberg! So, we were full of hope to...
our next stop to look out for carnivorous plants was the Gifberg in the north of Clanwilliam.
We drove there from Nieuwoudtville where we were staying during these days. There are some spectacular views from the Van Rhyn's Pass!
The first carnivorous plants we found there were...
after we stayed for one night in Clanwilliam we wanted to go further north to Niewoudtville. On this way wanted to visit a location in the Cedar Mountains, where we have been in 2009 to see how the Roridula dentata are doing there.
For me, the Cedar Mountains are amongst the most...

Hi,, I got bored today, having to stay at home with a bad cold for a few days,,I entertained myself by working with the plants and so I did some more photography. Hope you like the sterile plants:)

It has been some time since I posted pictures here, so I uploaded fresh photos of few plants of mine. February is the shortest month, but the longest and hardest for me, since I wait for the spring so impatiently. :-) Plants like these help me get through it:-) (Some are new species to my...
Here I report what has happened in my test jars filled with gelrite-gelled media and some species, apx. 1 month growth on such medium:
First, here is my control jar of weedy d.capensis. The proliferative growth shows that the composition of the medium should be fine for common drosera...
I would like to share some info and pics of my new TC jars. I have had issues with food store grade agar last fall and because several batches shifted the pH of the media several points up, I have lost some cultures. That was the last straw for me and I decided to upgrade my TC work to...
here are four pictures of plants, that we found in the Cedar Mountains. We first thought, they are Drosera trinervia. Only back in germany they were identified as Drosera afra by Andreas Fleischmann. Drosera afra differs from Drosera trinervia by not having too well developed nerves on the...
These are succulent and passionflowers that I have to trade

Adromiscus several un-named-cutting

Agave augustifolia marginata
Agave calmiane ferox...
I have been around and around with this plant, received as D. natalensis which ID was confirmed by Robert Gibson. It seems very atypical to me if it is D. natalensis (there is only so much to see in a photo without a flower!. Recent photos of Debbert's new species novae D. afra are...
Hi, just wanted to let you all know that pics of some of the 6 new species from South Africa are available on the G.P.F Forum.
Go to G.P.F Forum and look for:
D. afra, D. coccipetala, D. longiscapa and D. liniflora.
I really liked the picture of D. coccipetala, a very unusual flower.
