Hello Everybody!
I have recently joined this list and are amazed
that there is such a huge interest in carnivorous
plants. My name is Magnus and I am a ph.d-student
in Plantecology in the Lund University in Sweden.
I work with Pinguicula alpina, P. villosa and P.
vulgaris in a subarctic environment (Abisko,
Sweden). The goal of my study is to describe
their resource use, investment in reproduction and
cost of reproduction. It's great to work with
Pinguicula, no stupid root system that gets in the
way and easy to fertilize just add a fly.
I have only done field experiment sofar but would
like to grow Pinguiculas in greenhouses in the
Is there any books on growing Pinguiculas or
carnivorous plants in greenhouses?
I don't grow cp at home for the moment but will
start when I get time and a place to grow them.
See you
