• Nepentes the narrow-leaved

    Nepenthes stenodada

    The species is distinguished by narrow elongated green jugs and purple hairs, the height of the plant is 15-20 cm.

    Non-artes in the culture are represented by numerous varieties: • III de France - green jugs with splashed purple-red spots on the walls and the same color grooveson the rim. The shape of the jug is cylindrical, length 12-15 cm. Gentle - one of the most effective varieties, designed for hanging baskets, with large to 15-18 cm jugs of purple-green color.

    Williams - one of the least whimsical varieties, a jug 7-8 cm long, dark red with alternating red and green grooves on the rim. The umbrella on the outside is pale green with red stripes.

    Courtship. Non-pentes often appear on sale, however, they are only worth purchasing if you are ready to create the necessary conditions for them, since their price is high enough, for example, one copy of the III de France brand is sold at a price of up to 40 euros.

    It is possible to successfully grow non-pendants for a long time only in conditions of a "tropical window" or in a moist and warm greenhouse.

    Nepentes needs bright diffused light. The temperature in summer is 20 ^ -24 ° C, in winter -15-17 ° C.Humidity of air should be not less than 70-90%, it is useful to spray with soft warm water. Watering in the summer 1 time in two days, in the winter - 1-2 times a week.

    As a substrate, use a mixture of peat soil, sphagnum, sand in a ratio of 2: D: 0.5, or a mixture of peat soil, perlite, vermiculite in a ratio of 1: 1: 0.5: SG.Saakov recommends a mixture of coarse foliage, heath land, charcoal, sphagnum in a ratio of 1: 1: 0.2: 0.2 with the addition of a small amount of dry mullein. Top dressing is done using fertilizers for indoor plants, but before use they are diluted two to three times against the recommended dose. Fertilizers are introduced from March to October.- Plants are grown in low wide pots. The roots are very fragile, so be careful when transplanting.

    Before transplanting, it is recommended to place the pot for 24 hours in a container with water, so that its level at 1.5-2 cm does not reach the top edge of the pot. After transplantation for a better growth, all shoots are cut to a well-developed kidney in their lower part. After the appearance of young shoots, they pinch over the seventh axillary( located between the stem and the base of the petiole) kidney. In the second year of cultivation young specimens are pruned, and the emerging shoots are plucked over 5-6 leaves.

    Non-retired are affected by aphids and worms.

    Propagate non-limbs with apical cuttings in early spring. Root them at a temperature of 25-27 ° C, the roots appear within 1-1,5 months. The seedlings are planted in a mixture of leaf land, sphagnum and charcoal, taken in equal parts. Lianiform forms are multiplied by means of layers.

    Seed propagation is possible. They are planted in a mixture of sphagnum with sand. Sprouts appear after 1.5-2 months.


    genus Urtkularia

    Family. Bladderwort - Lentibulariaceae

    Species of the genus occur mainly in the tropics of South America and Australia, in the north of Central Africa, in the countries of Southeast Asia.

    Among them there are terrestrial, epiphytic and aquatic plants. Some species, however, prefer the more temperate regions of the globe. Eight species are known in our country.pemphigus.

    Its Russian name was given to the genus due to the trapping vesicles, which have a different, but more often round or ovoid shape.

    Pemphigus stems are capable of photosynthesis, their diameter varies from several millimeters to several centimeters, and normal vegetative leaves form on them.

    Blisters can be divided into three groups:

    terrestrial, representatives - U. san-derssonii, U. dichotorna;in some species the leaves are thin, cereal, the rosettes appear close together, forming dense sodkins, which are strewn with bright, small flowers 1 cm in diameter in the summer; the amphibians, which can be called amphibians, can lead both terrestrial andwater way of life, they include U. gibba, U. Johore and U. coerulea. Stems of floating species sometimes reach a length of several meters, epiphytes - U. longiflora and U. alpina.

    Two species are most commonly cultivated.
