    Need A little help

    So many friends have said if I wanted to grow again to give a holler when I was ready that I thought I would put this here. I wish I could put it in the trade forum, but I really have nothing to offer yet except promises to make it up when I can. I have some new friends in South Africa and...

    Drosera rubrafolia

    A recent conversation has sparked my interest in this South African taxon. I've never grown it and am curious regarding it. It was discovered and named by Paul Debbert in 1991 but subsequent review reduced it to synonymous with Drosera cistiflora. I'm curious: is this caulescent like other...

    Hats Off To Mark Todd "OZZY"

    Let the Rain Work for You

    If you are lucky enough to have rain (which is a rare thing here the last couple years) you can use it to leach out your plant pots. Even with the best water, salts begin to accumulate leading to lack of vigorous health. Rain, especially rain with a lightning storm, is very good to clear out...
