    quick question

    well me and the person who gave it to me deflasked it. So they weren't hardened. He had deflasked another one last week- said it started growing again in a week, which was pretty nice i guess.

    quick question

    yeah some people dont like them for some reason The good thing about them is they get pretty hot in a small area, so good for lowlands and tropical drosera.

    quick question

    Well I usually remember them being HD... but its those flourescent lights that twist around so both ends are on one thing that you can screw into something. Wattage? I'm not sure but its the biggest one at home depot.

    relatively urgent question

    yeah. I have these two "Byblis liniflora" (ICPS seedbank), but they grow completely different- They have multiple growth points they've lived for quite a while (since june) They have around 10+ flowers open each, one has 12 They don't make seed on their own. They used to (I got about 20) but...

    d. neocaledonica

    Here's my neocaledonica a month after I got it Here it is two weeks ago The obvious problem was light, so I moved it outside. It's beginning to get a lot of red coloring, but isn't nearly what it once looked like. It is always in warm weather (90 or so thanks to this heat wave), high...

    Coloring on green ampullaria

    haha yeah. Still weird though, I hope we can figure out what happened exactly. For the record, the plant was a great deal and it came with a 7 inch diameter

    Coloring on green ampullaria

    Not at all, though it is worth noting that the pitcher with the spots is one of the closest to the lights. Here's a "fun fact" about my amp: It actually originally WAS supposed to be spotted. When dean shipped me it, I thought he screwed up on my order. For the 2 years (approx) that I've had...

    Coloring on green ampullaria

    It does it on its own, or if the top part is doing poorly (like if you cut it off) I believe it will as well. Basal growth is a normal thing for amp though.

    Coloring on green ampullaria

    Hello::: My ampullaria has produced a very odd pitcher. It's a green form, and it has made a spotted pitcher. I can't say for sure if it has always been spotted or not, as I don't keep a close observation on all of its many traps. What has been the cause of this oddity? (added): I just...

    Starting sundews from seed

    Better safe thansorry? Also you might consider individual trays for the pots, less evaporation, more control of where you put them.

    tendrils growing out of nodes seems abnormal to me, since they normally form at the ends of leaves. Nodes usually sprout new growth points. IF you have new growth points coming out of nodes, that's a good thing.
