    New Challenge: Bug Plants

    This is probably most likely to end up in failure...but since I seem to be succeeding grandly with now all 3 of the perennial Byblis, I might as well try tackling the other touchy Mediterranean carnivores.

    Attention all Flickr Users!

    Some saw this coming from miles off, but Flickr is going the same way Photobucket did. All free accounts will be relegated to 1,000 images, period, unless you pay $50 to upgrade and retain all your pics.

    Give Away Seeds, seeds, lots of seeds!

    Hello all! It's been a while since I've done a giveaway, but I've had a set of seeds tucked away for a little while that I think would be a great beginner's pack, or even an experimental mix for more experienced growers. I have only 2 rules (aside from the usual sign-up procedure): this is for...

    Been to the Zoo Recently?

    Hello again! I mentioned in my "Reptiles of UNC" thread in that subforum that the herpetology class was planning a special trip to the Denver Zoo. However as I took a lot of pics I decided that making a separate thread here (it's not just reptiles) was a better idea. There will be several posts...
