    Drosera Madagascariensis, the Hydra

    A few months ago, I decided to take a cutting from the top of my D. Madagascariensis. When it started growing back, it did'nt just resume growth normally... It started growing out of 3 spots where I took the cutting! The pictures are pretty bad, but you get the idea. Is this sort of...

    Mysterious Nepenthes

    I went to a few 'plants general items' stores looking for sphagnum moss. I ended up finding a few nepenthes and 2 VFT. The VFT were in terrible shape, I also never had one so I didnt want to try it out. The nepenthes were in overall great shape, but I just have no idea about the species, so...
