Research output: Contribution to journalArticleScientificpeer-review


The temporarily carnivorous plant species Triphyophyllumpeltatum is currently being cultivated at the Botanical Gardens of the Universities of Bonn and Würzburg. In both gardens, it developed carnivorous glandular leaves. This paper complements earlier communications concerning propagation and greenhouse cultivation of this rare West African plant species. We report on our progress with ex vitro progeny, on the cultivation of young plants of Triphyophyllum peltatum, and on observations on the carnivorous stage.
