Anyone ever use Volck oil on their CPs successfully? I imagine it's very much like neem oil. Received a shipment of Neps suffering from spider mites and my Darlingtonia have root borers eating the rhizomes.
Won't pull the trigger until I get confirmation but I don have extra plants I could test...
I've never known anyone in the US to grow 'Linda' and it's just as rare to see someone with a khasiana in their collection but it's worth a shot. Anyone with an extra cutting or plant, please shoot me a message and let's see what we can work out!
Found these handsome lovelies at Sloat Garden Center up here in San Francisco, CA and was wondering if anyone can identify the Nepenthes in these hanging pots? Also, if anyone can tell me what brand/supplier these are coming from because I also see the same tagged plants at other garden stores...

So as much as I love California State University of Northridge, They just don't offer anything plant related. The school doesn't really care much for it's botanical garden and greenhouse facilities. SO I decided I'd like to get out of LA and move up north to Washington, Oregon, or Somewhere in...
I have a male nepenthes x 'Judith Finn' blooming and it is almost half way done. Does anybody need pollen? I don't really care what cross is made, I just don't want the pollen to go to waste. Although I am hoping someone out there has a ventricosa, maxima, truncata or rafflesiana...
Hi, I'm looking for seeds of the sensitive plant (mimosa pudica) It doesn't matter what kind, Even the aquatic version is fine with me. I don't know what I have for trade at the moment but if you could send them for postage that'd be great.

It's been a while once again since I posted here. lately i've gotten into water gardening with Lotuses and getting into Victoria water lilies.
To the point: I've always been curious about my water hardness and finally found info about where I live (I live in the San fernando Valley)...
