That live sphagnum is just screamin' for some feral D. prolifera in there ...

Whimgrinder, I love those things. I have been looking for some. I have one tiny one I planted about four inches long and the top half got soft and fell off. I don't mind bad smells becaue my sense of smell is very poor. I LOVE that they look like starfish and I like plants that can scare people hehe.
I just sowed like 400 Black Beauty eggplant seeds, 200 seeds of Rocket Larkspur Delphinium ajacis , 100 seeds of Blanketflower Gaillardia aristata, and like 5 seeds of Autumn Beauty Helianthus annuus. I got them at the dollar store. I hate eggplants, they taste like crap, but the vegetable looks sooo cool! It's all purpley and stuff.
Oh yeah, and I had some chives, sweet basil and parsley to sprout... Well actually, one didn't sprout, but I'm not sure which that was...

And just planted about 75 spinach and 75 cilantro seeds!
I just bought four coffee trees on eBay!
I'll use their beans to fertilize my Nepenthes.
I received my Amorphophallus paeoniifolius today. It was a bit smaller than expected, about .75" across... I would take a pic but I potted it. It had a little, tiny bump on the top, so I'm assuming it was sprouting and it won't rot. In about 3-4 years, I'll get a flower! In the mean time, I can enjoy the mottled stem and the cool leaf pattern.
Do these guys propagate their bulbs? Like, do little bulbs grow on these and separate? Will I get more bulbs to grow?
