    I haven’t but can’t see a reason not to! I see that people are using it for cactus. I’m trying pure ground pumice; they grow great on whole pumice rocks so that should work fine too.

    West should be enough if it’s unobstructed (including no overhanging eaves that might severely reduce the hours of direct light. Otherwise Fluorescents or LED Tube’s should do fine. I’m just starting...

    That would definitely be interesting to know, but without knowing which form of agnata was the seed parent of ‘Aphrodite,’ it’s hard to know exactly what you are comparing. Though the reddish color...

    If I understand correctly, the issue here is simply that while ‘Aphrodite’ is agnata x moctezumae, agnata x moctezumae is not necessarily ‘Aphrodite,” and he’s comparing the actual named plant with...

    It’s a moranensis but was first considered a species. Like others such as ‘caudata’, it’s sometimes referred to as “moranensis var. mexicana” or just “moranensis mexicana.” I’m not sure how valid...

    I’ve never heard of unwashed peat being a problem. (What brand was that, so I can avoid it!) It’s a good idea to stratify the seed for a good 2 months tho. I haven’t tried it with paper towels; I...

    It looks like your ventrata has produced a basal shoot. Small pitchers are generally hard to identify but I’d bet that once the shoot grows larger the pitchers will be the same as the others. Unless...

    They really look like something that would be on a runway but not in everyday life. One or two of them look like some sort of weird tumor if you don’t realize what’s going on. But the macabre part of...
