    I regularly tape up broken flower stems and pitchers (at the base). I'd say the success rate is 80-85%. It depends a lot on the severity of the break and how soon you apply the splint/bandage. A bit of plastic drinking straw slit lengthwise and slipped over the stalk makes a good splint when needed. Hold in place with tape.

    Great collection, thanks for sharing.
    Grand Hotel... always the same. People come, people go. Nothing ever happens.

    Heres a pic of the flower. The ovary has gotten bigger and the petals are no longer floppy.

    This storage tank is for the nepenthes greenhouse. A 150 gpd system will fill the tank up at night and keep the system toped off on low flow days. If one day is a hot spell, the 33 gallon tank will still be able to supply water all day. All I need now is the pressure shutoff valve and a float valve to maintain the water level.

    New arrivals: Drosera I got from a trade (thanks Brie!) Cant recall the name now but it will come to me. Anyway they are recovering from the shock.

    Went into the greenhouse and smelled a horrid smell: my nepenthes has flowered
    The good thing is the pollen can last up to a year which gives my female some time to put out a flower.

    My RO system should be fired up in a few days.

    I thought I would post this pic and ask you guys if this looks right. My leucoplylla flower has started to brown over the past week. I think the seeds are ready, but I am still worried.

    Finally, after years of intense work and failed attempts, I have finally put an end to all the sediment that builds up on my plants. I connected the incoming water to an RO system and connected the RO system to a trash can storage tank. I was originally gonna connect the solenoid valve to the bottom of the tank, but there wasn't enough pressure to power the misters. I got an industrial pump to power the misters from above...and success! The misters might need to be replaced from sodium buildup, but so far so good. The RO system produces more water than the misters use. Heres the whole setup:
