    Pinguicula Caerulea care

    Here's a picture I took of it yesterday morning Imgur: The most awesome images on the Internet I've been growing it indoors with bright, indirect light, standing in a 1/4th inch of water. I only add more water once all the water is gone. I Love the goo droplets on the bottom of the leaves. I'm...

    Pinguicula Caerulea care

    Hello, yesterday I picked up a pinguicula Caerulea, it's my first ping and I could really use some tips to keep it alive. I know it's a warm temperate species, and that I need to use distilled, RO, or rain water only. I'm in zone 9b on the west coast and I'm not sure if it needs to be grown...

I Wasn't planning on getting into Nepenthes for a year or two since I've killed many a houseplant but I find CP's to be much more interesting than other plants, I've become quite addicted to them. I Checked...

    Thank you for your replies, I really hope the first one is a Tarnok, but even if its not its still a beautiful plant, and I really wanted a Leucophylla. The closest picture I could find of the second was of a Rubra Jonesii in The Savage Garden, although the images of Jonesii I've found online...

    Plant journal

    Thanks everyone for your replies. I was taking pictures on my phone and liked seeing howy plants progressed, but I'm running out of memory to do that. I think I'm going to start a notebook and doing weekly notes. I like the instagram idea, I've never used it personally, but my husband does for...

    Unknown Sarr's

    Hi i was wondering if anyone had any guesses as to what varieties these are, I don't plan on labeling them, I'm just curious. The first one obviously has some Leucophylla influence, possibly Tarnok, although I won't know until it flowers. The second one I'm thinking is some sort of Rubra...

    Hi from Far Nor Cal

    I've never seen any plants in that area although I've been in the Smith River area before, we used to vacation in Crescent City. Did you visit the Darlingtonia trail in Gasquet? I haven't been there yet, but i plan on checking it out next time we pass through there.

    Care Questions

    Thank you all for the help, i think im going to go ahead and get one. I've read that taller pots are better I'll have to pick some up. My Sarracenia are doing well, as is my new capensis. I've actually been really surprised my Darlingtonia had done so well in out heat, I keep it in dappled shade...

    Hi from Far Nor Cal

    Yeah I'd like to try a Venus Flytrap, i think im going to get one next time i order plants, I had one last year, but it wasn't getting enough sunlight and didn't make it. Right now my plants are getting about 5 hours of direct sun and I wasn't sure if that was enough for flytraps.
