I really don't know where to post my pics any more because I'm growing all sorts of things, so I guess it'll be here!
Most of the neps:
Paph that has been working on a bloom for...months!
4 days ago-
Ceph root regrowth with new leaves and teeeny pitcher (those two pairs of leaves in the center of the shot...camera didn't want to focus close up) -
the gemmae the SASE people are going to get (one head per SASE) -
is my scorpioides making gemmae, or is this more leaves waiting to unfurl (new to this drosera)?
what's popped up in the gemmae tray (all "planted" at the same time)-
And last but not least, the outdoor colony of pitchers and last flytrap that I haven't killed yet! -
...Now, I'm having an outbreak of small green things that I think are thrips because they're green, thin and long (and far too tiny to take a picture of) and I've seen some full grown thrips on some of my plants . I plan on neem-ing everything this weekend, but I need to ask if there are plants that I have that don't like neem in your experience?
I got green light neem concentrate, that I'll mix up 2tbsp/gallon water. It doesn't say it needs soap to mix in with it which is strange...is this true? I've mixed up a batch and it all floats to the top after a bit like an oil should, so maybe it mixes in the water just long enough to get sprayed on the plants?
In any case, I heard Paphs (orchids) don't like neem, is this true? The other things I have that I don't know if I can spray and want to know your experience with neem on them are cephalotus, any nepenthes that can't tolerate it (the few kill-proof ones I've tried have been OK), cape sundew, sarracenia, flytraps, and orchids (phalaenopsis, epidendrum, cattleya, encyclia cochleata, miltonia, oncidium, zygopetalum).
