Summary

The complete life cycle of Triphyophyllum peltatum (Dioncophyllaceae) has been observed under greenhouse conditions. Without passing through the carnivorous stage, the plant reached maturity and, after flowering abundantly, developed the unusual seeds. This cultivation success permitted valuable observations on floral and fruit biology of T. peltatum.

Keywords: cultivation: Triphyophyllum peltatum; observations: Triphyophyllum peltatum
