    Hello from The Sonoran Desert

    New mini Akai Ryu parent.

    I am interested in other (mini) carnivorous plants that will complement this sub-species in an arrangement and that can handle in the desert. Currently the plant has been on a south windowsill for a week. Plan is to put it outside on an Eastern balcony to receive 4-5 hours of sunlight, now that the Tucson monsoon season is over.

    I have a 14" diameter x 18" clay pot with saucer that would be great once Its full of perlite and peat. Cover it with Sphagnum moss?

    Thanks in advance.

    Hey, I'm in Tucson also =) But my plants are in greenhouses.... I did a S. flava once in a water barrel with U. gibba... It did ok, except for the dry season really took a toll on the pitchers. But then again, we have such a long growing season the pitchers don't tend to look wonderful the whole time they are up anyway. Welcome!

    Thanks. Is there a club in town?

    I have planted tanks and would really like to get some Aldrovandra and Utricularia Graminifolia.

    I bought some Cape Sundew seeds off of feebay for a bog planting.

    No, there isn't. There are really really really few of us. I had U. graminifolia a couple years back, I'd have to check in and see how it's doing/if it's still there. Aldrovandra, I know a guy... so I might be able to check on that for you too. The capensis seeds I definitely could have given yah

    Thanks! I did receive some Cape seeds, Aldrovandra, and U. graminifolia (UG) mat today.

    Is it best to use only the sphagnum moss to germinate the seeds?

    D. capensis will grow on whatever carnivorous plant media you fell like dropping it on Give it light and keep it damp and they'll grow for you.
