    Nepenthes Sanguinea

    Here are some recent shots of the sanguinea we got in July. We kind of screwed up and sunburned it initally, killing the pitchers it arrived with. But, a few months later she has decided to send up some basal shoots which have now started to pitcher. IMG_20161221_171159409 by drbonest t, on...

    Maggot removal?

    We have spotted a few maggots living in our purpurea pitchers, and I'm wondering if we even need to bother getting rid of them. Any flies that come of it will probably feed our capensis, and I don't know that they are hurting my purpurea. If I should get rid of them, how would I go about it...

    Mystery sarracenia

    We rescued a new sarracenia- and I'm quite taken with it, but I can't quite put my finger on what its parents were. To me it looks a bit like a cross between minor and psitaccina. Any clues would help...

    P. lusitanica

    Unfortunately I live in an apartment so I don't have outdoor space for them. I have them on a shelf under a grow light.

    P. lusitanica

    That is awesome! I just started germinating some of these, and so far 14 sprouts have come up. I can't find a very detailed guide on these, is it okay to feed them the way I do my sundew seedlings, and if so what should I look for to know its ready to be fed?

    N sanguinea

    Good to know- thanks for all your help. Seriously, this place has helped me so much with getting started in this adventure. Not to mention the motivation to get my garden in gear seeing what everyone else is growing. I found a bonus too, little bumpy freckles on the underside of the lids on the...

    N sanguinea

    One thing I read says the movement of bugs inspires pitchers to produce more digestive fluid, is that true in your experience? Or does a dry pitcher just tend to refill itself eventually?

    N sanguinea

    Well I like to feed my plants, so I'll just probably feed them at will. One thing I've heard mixed messages on is whether or not to put water in the pitchers themselves, some places say to put water in dry pitchers and others say its bad- what to do?

    N sanguinea

    N sanguinea

    There is a specimen of sanguinea en route to our house this week, and I was wondering how big their root systems can get and what size pot we should put it in. The claim is that its a 6 inch hanging basket- but six inches isnt even enough to hold the roots of our capensis! Do you guys think that...
