    Quick update! It appears that most of the small nubs have quickly started to form many shoots with traps, although there are still some that appear to be doing nothing. All of these shoots are rather...

    I have used some of the ZooMed ReptiTherm units that are usually used for hermit crab tanks and those seemed to work well. They have an automatic shutoff or cycle time though I believe so it doesn't...

    Jamban Hybrids

    That looks like a x ventrata to me, but I'm no expert. I would expect less of a taper from the base to the peristome from a ventricosa.

    This was the first time I have ever seen sphagnum moss in a regular store that wasn't bone dry. There was a decent amount of humidity in the bag, and I remember that the strands were more of a light...

    Live Sphagnum Moss

    I've always thought that the reds and greens of live sphagnum have looked very nice when grown in pots alongside Nepenthes and I've read somewhere that the live moss may help to maintain the pH and...

    That is a possibility however these plants were relatively large so I think they had been out long enough that any hormone carryover should be negligible at this point. If this was impacting all the...

    My best guess at this point is that I somehow removed or damaged the meristem in such a way that apical dominance was relieved and lateral meristems are developing at each node, or are forming...

    New Growth Points or Something Else

    So a few weeks back I spotted some B52 at our local farmer's market, and promptly picked up a plant with multiple offshoots for 20 bucks. When I was dividing it, I accidentally removed the meristem...
