I am looking for a small pump to use in my GH. The GH is only 6'x8', I have 5 misting nozzles in a system that normally hooks up to a water faucet. Not wanting the chlorine in the mist, I need something small, either in-line or submersible.
Looking on-line is very confusing, as I am not sure...
How Y'all are!?
I am wanting to know what the best days of the week are for shipping plants out.
The wife sez that they process packages every day and items would arrive within a few days (mon) if shipped today......
I am quite dubious of this.
My time at work limits my access to the Post...
since having collected the section Iperua, I am now looking to collect the section Orchidioides. I have a few, but missing many.
Any help or information on any of these would be greatly...
I have a Nep that is starting to produce a flower.
It is a Splendiana x (tiveyii x vetchii), thanks Mass!. I have no other Neps with flowers so the loose pollen (if male) is not a concern at this time.
My question is, should I cut the flower off, leave it to finish, wither and then cut it...
I have decided to culture some food for my Utrics and genlisia.
I have all needed equipment and knowledge ( many years of raising fishes for wholesale), except one thing.
When I retrieved my trusty Tasco microscope from its wooden box ( I got this for Christmas in '67 or '68), it was totally...
I am confused on which Pings are to go into dormancy.
I see recent pics from others of the same thing I now have in low light/low water condition.
Is it only the Mexican Pings that need the time off?
Thanks for helping the ignorant.:blush:
Being new to this hobby, I have no insight as to the legality or morality of harvesting CP seeds from the wild.
Can I get some input from Y'all?
I can see issues and arguments arising from both sides of this.
I would like to collect some (not for sale) but not sure if it is right or not. ???
Well, I am asking because the Wife just told me I HAD TO GET a macro camera for the plants.
(I believe she likes the Utric's as much as I do)
I am not a photographer and need a fairly simple unit, digital of course.
Please mention both pro's and con's if you will.
Thanks for any help folks
I am no photographer, but here it is.

6th and 7th...new pings, thanks Mass!

I am looking for some designs for pots to grow utric's in. I wanted something more than the boring plastic we all use.
I am talking with a very good potter out of Coos Bay Or.
Something with the water tray built in.
please post any and all suggestions you like. Drawings are even better...
I have a couple of newly acquired Neps. (less than 3 months) with pitchers that are fading . When is the best time to remove these? When they start to fade or after the entire pitcher has dried up?
Thanks in advance

How Y'all are!?
I have a question about my Nepenthes maxima
It is growing nicely now after one month in my care. Butt, the new leaves are a red color, very turgid and healthy looking otherwise. I am wondering if this is normal for new growth or is there something missing in my environment...
I can't seem to find any at all in my remote li'l town. I want to use some of the terra cotta pots I have collected through the years for some of my CP's.
I have browsed around the internet and the $ range is way variable from place to place. I am worried about the toxicicty of the cheaper...
Hope Y'all are enjoying the day!
I have question about times for indoor lighting.
As a "fish farmer", I would step up my lighting 1/2 hour every two weeks. From a 12 hour
winter (most fish were tropical) to a 16 hour summer. Would this be correct for the Nepenthes as well? And just where is...
I am planning on building a bog for some of my Sarr's and Dew's.
I want to use hypertuffa with a plastic mesh set inside (think rebar in concrete).
As a builder of ponds and water features, I have a few old "coatings" that are pond/fish safe.
Would these "rubberized" products be fine to use...
