i've got a notebook next to my terrarium, and even though im up to nearly 30 plants now, im still a total newbie at this. so, whenever a question pops into my head, i write it down. this is what i've compiled so far this month, if you guys could help me out at all, that would be great
1- do mexican pings need their succulent-dormancy like sarracenia need their dormancy?
2- i still dont know what live sphagnum looks like. i think i MAY have some though. i bought a ping from lowes, just because it was cheap. when i opened the little box, there were green shoots about 1 to 1 1/2 inches long coming out the ENDS of the dead sphagnum. is this live sphag, and if so, will it take if i lay it out on top of a peat base?
3- i keep some of the pots in my terrarium in water trays, with about an inch of standing water. is this neccessary for water-crazy plants in a high-humidity (70%) terrarium?
4- whats the easiest way to repot rosetted plants with tiny roots? (like esseriana)
5- i want to move some of my larger nepenthenes outside. where should i hang them in terms of shade?
6- wheres a good place to buy M-H lights?
7- is there any way to stop my capensis from flowering?!?!?!
8- i want a *SMALL* type of nepenthene. any ideas?
thats all for now... thanks!
