Hey there guys,
I'm searching for plants from this location - the western-most point in the range of Sarracenia. Some forms of S. purpurea from Fort Nelson are veinless and I am keen to acquire one of those especially. I have D. 'Hercules' for trade.
Let me know if you're up for a trade! I know...
Recently got myself a piece of this one. Gonna be fun getting it through the summer, thankfully I've got a cool basement and great air circulation. Fingers crossed I'll be able to keep the mold off it.
Wondering if there are any cultivation tips for this species, there's not much out...
I've had this idea for a long while now, and it'd be pretty rad if we could organize something around this here on TF. Even establishing a thread about field trips and events here could prepare us for talking about similar ideas people will have in the future.
I was thinking that...
I recently transplanted some of my P. gig x moc into a mix of peat and turface, a primarily alkaline mix. The plant was quite substantial so I also took a few pullings. However, less than a week later all the plants and pullings have completely browned up. I understood that the parent...
I have a ton of D. burmannii from Humpty-doo and Hann River. Each plant, totaling over 25, is over an inch across, bright red and healthy, and sending up startlingly thick, robust flower stalks. I was prepared a month ago for a hailstorm of seed.
So far, from all the plants combined, I may...
Help me guys, I'm flying blind here!
So I have a P. gypsicola that's doing *great* even though I have ABSOLUTELY no clue as to why
Now it's producing a winter rosette. I've removed some carnivorous leaves for propagation, though don't know precisely how to get good results.
The thing is...
Ladies and laddies and everyone
I'd like to discuss a bit of a cultivator's enigma: an unexpected morph of a fairly common plant, D. aliciae, dramatically and unexpectedly exhibiting low-light foliage. This caused a fair amount of confusion on Facebook, where growers speculated for a time that...
Hey again, and happy 2017!
I'm asking about successes with D. hilaris cuttings. I'm trying to propagate my plant but my first attempt isn't looking great. I'm sure the next one will go better, but I wanted to check in with you all before I continued.
I cut a healthy new leaf off my plant...
I've noticed growth differences in the two D. finlaysoniana circulated by the ICPS seedbank, labeled as "pink flower" and "white flower", respectively.
Conditions of Growth
All my plants are grown under HO T-5s, and remain about 5 inches max away from the lights. Temps are 80-90...
Is there a resource for microscope photos of cp seed? I frequently find myself wondering what plant some stray seeds belong to and having detailed descriptions of seeds and flowers together in a database sounds important, valuable to me.
Does this exist? I've looked around a bit and can't find...
Curious about what people know about this subtropical south african plant's dormancy requirements. It doesn't seem like a tough plant to maintain but a south african with a winter dormancy is kinda unusual and something I'm not prepared for.
Ideas on initiating dormancy or...
After a bit of digging, I found online that Drosera pollen, at least for tuberous plants, is viable for at least 3-4, maybe 5 weeks. I also know from experience that pollen is usually usable on (south african) plants for a few days after flowering but I have no experience keeping it in the...
Hey all, after a brief search through the forum records I could find scant information and no details about germinating conditions for pygmy seeds.
I am trying to germinate a slightly alpine form of Drosera pygmaea called "Mt. Bold Red". I tried sowing some seeds under T-8 lights with a 12...
I need care pointers on all three of these species, especially on seed germination which is pertinent at the moment. I recently got seeds of them and I'm up for a challenge!
Thank you all, I appreciate the help,
Ran across this (below link) from the VCPS, wondering if anyone else has tried propagating tuberous species through cuttings. I have D. zigzagia flowering and waiting to strike from a leaf cutting at the moment. I'm curious about specifics on pollination, sowing, and cuttings for that...
Also looking for this rare Australian Drosera. I heard there used to be European collections with it in the past but am unsure as of present; I've never seen this species in cultivation before.
Very keen to trade for it. Check out my growlist and we can definitely make a deal :)
Things I've got
alicea "silvermine (?)", strap-leaf form
anglica “Alakai Swamp”
x "Andromeda (BCP cross of D. prolifera x schizandra)
binata "Waihohonu Desert"
burmannii: Humpty-Doo, Hann River, Hong Kong Red
capensis "big pink", red...
Curious about when the next BACPS conference will probably be held. Should I anticipate a January date? Should I also expect a Bay Area meet or Sebastopol venue? I'm keen to head down there and do some snoopin and maybe get some plants to augment my collection
Heya laddies and ladies an all,
I'm Carson from Portland. I've been growing CPs since I was 5 or so so that makes it sixteen years of growing I guess, damn I'm getting old hah
I'm a part time student at PSU going for an International Studies degree with a minor in Japanese...
