Didnt want to post on the other thread so i started a new one. Ill send pics after seems i have trouble with photo bucket. I sowed 3 seeds on the soil of the mother plant and just forgot about them. 2 months after they germinated without any treatment. Got More seeds coming on many tips of the plant. Its even making a basal. Its definitely one of my favorite plant.

...WOW!!! I remember seeing some of your Roridula pics in a thread that I cannot retrace. Was going to PM you (and probably still will) about growing tips. From what I remember from that thread is that you grow both, R. Gorgonias and R. Dentata. Which one is this? Awesome growing man!!!, Salut!
apoplast: interesting for sure , never thought it could happen! I found it when cleaning up dead leaves. Not sure if its happier than yours, i give it a real hard time. In the spring, i take it from inside under t-5 to full blast sun without any acclimatation. It doesnt struggle at all. I left it in 4 inches of water all summer , no problem.This is a pic of a Roridula Gorgonia in Sweden at the botanical garden of gothenburg. Must be 10-15 years old or something. Very nice. They had a very intense cp collection too.
Hi Labine - Wow, that thing is massive! Looks like they've needed to stake it up too. It seems even larger than the photos of the ones I've seen i habitat. Makes me wonder if they ever live as long as that one in nature, given the fire frequency of the Cape vegetation. Thanks for sharing that photo!

bonfield: I've decided to finally reveal my best-kept secret for growing healthy Neps: Just spit on them every few days, the enzymes in saliva help them to better absorb the fertilizer I spray them with!
