    For Trade Wondering about the gorilla in the roon

    Hi there, With the modern day black plague on the loose, I am curious how folks here and elsewhere are viewing trading thru the mail. My family has a modest house in another city, but it seems travel is being discouraged at best. Or more to the point, what you cannot do is easier found out...

    Looking For (trade) Arums, Aroids, Amophorphallus and other deer proof oddities

    Hi there, I am having a problem with deer coming in from a nearby park at night and eating some of my plantings. It will only get worse over time, I imagine, and it would seem the way to go is with plants they would sooner starve than eat. Plus I like these, and already have some here and...

    Info on posting pics/threads

    Recently, I went to post a thread and encountered a multiple snafu. Overall, the thread did not post, which was probably operator error. But, whilst trying to post pics, I did the usual Photobucket thing, all went as usual, and when I hit the button to "preview post" all that was there was...

    Give Away Antelope Horn Milkweed seeds Asclepias asperula

    Pest issue whiteflies on an Iris in a tub with lots of U. tricolor and some marginals

    I have a large tub with some yellow iris plants and lots of U. tricolor. There are some other aquatics, and/or marginals, dwarf horsetail and the like. The Iris has a bunch of whiteflies, but I am a bit reluctant to spray as I don't want to harm the utric, and stuff like neem oil probably...

    Mystery dew (maybe) seeds

    Some time ago, I purchased some seeds from an Ebay seller, oddly, they were not what I ordered.:) But, they appear to me to be some sort of sundew. Though they might be too big to be that, see pics... I plan to attempt to sprout a few, as has Acro here out of curiosity. Perhaps some you you...

    Caveat emptor, Ebay seller selling Byblis aquatica seeds is hawking Drosera or what?

    Perhaps and probably my own fault, I ordered some seeds from an Ebay seller, and got stung. The listing was for B. aquatica, and I got a bunch of what appear to some unknown sundew seeds. They are only off by about a factor of 100 in size, so there is that. Wishful thinking and all. There...

    Aussie red Aldrovanda

    After several failed attempts to get and grow different forms of red Aldrovanda, I found someone in the states who was selling these plants, from Kimberly originally if I remember correctly. I do have a few others that are on life support to doing ok-ish, but these so far are doing the best...
