    Flytrap thefts could become felony under N.C. bill

    Finally! Hopefully, if passed, it will discourage poaching even more... I love to see stuff like this happening! Personally, I'd be fine with introducing standard SEED-GROWN plants derived from a diverse genetic line, so that you'd help increase diversity, but not flood it with clones or...

    How did you get into CP's?

    They are pretty cool looking. I'd probably keep them if I had enough space to. They are really beautiful insects.

    How did you get into CP's?

    I just wanted to ask how did you guys get into CP's? For me, I came across a picture of some Nepenthes raffelsiana while researching for a project 5 years ago. I then HAD to try to grow some... So, I read up some on CP's, and decided to grow some. After getting a Drosera spatulata, Nepenthes...

    Dream Hybrids

    For me it would probably be (macrophylla x bellii) x (villosa x bellii) to try to produce a smaller, toothy plant that would tolerate intermediate conditions...

    Cephalotus Divisions!

    They only look a little beat up as of today. I think the key to this was doing the entire process in less than 5 minutes, and being gentle. All the pots were partially filled before taking the divisions and I put them in plastic bags as soon as each one was potted. The humidity in the bags has...

    Cephalotus Divisions!

    I don't know what I will do with all of them. I'll probably try to use some for trades eventually, and I'm also going to try to promote flowering by giving them a seasonal photoperiod. I'd like to be able to do a seed or cutting giveaway of these eventually.

    Cephalotus Divisions!

    I did put all the pitchers that fell off in the pots of my Nepenthes ventricosa. I think they should like the moist LFS.

    Hcarlton's hybrids

    Wow! This makes me want to try hybridizing sundews.. The tokaiensis X 'Tamiln' looks like an excellent cross. My only question is how do you manage to catch the flowers open Whenever I have sundews bloom, I never get to see them open, only closed...

    Cephalotus Divisions!

    So around 3 years ago, I got a little Cephalotus for my birthday. It was around 2" in diameter, and only had little tiny baby pitchers. I kept it under a constant 16ON/8OFF lighting cycle, 4" under a single T8 bulb, at 60-80% humidity and temperatures between 68 and 72, with no change in...

    The Dew Line

    OK, I've got the pics on photobucket. Here they are: Drosera peltata: You need to tilt your head a bit for this one. Drosera capensis: Focus on the bottom part of thie image first. The alignment was not very good, and the leaf bends toward you. If you get yourself oriented on the bottom...

    The Dew Line

    Wow, that one is great... I just made one (by hand) of a D. peltata. I'll post it once I resize it (from 2.2 MB). It is a bit harder to line up than yours are. I also made one of a capensis leaf, but again it is more difficult to form the image, as these pictures were not done carefully.

    The Dew Line

    Not a Number, really nice stereo image.... I've seen some before, and that one is one of the best I have seen. Some really lack a wide focal plane, and look just barely 3D, but that one looks fully 3D. It looks like I have a pot of gablripes sitting on my keyboard. What is your technique for...

    Sarracenia from Seed!!

    I have a bunch of Sarrs just sending up their seed leaves. They hadn't sprouted after their first stratification, so I just stuck a mix of jonesii, alabamensis, and oreophylla outside in my S. jonesii pot. I'll post some pics tomorrow (or Tuesday).

    Anyone for animals from temporary vernal pools?

    Lucky! The only vernal pool dwellers near me are fairy shrimp on Enchanted Rock, a state park here in Texas, as far as I know. If any texans out there know of vernal pool dwellers closer to Austin, please tell me! I'd love to see some in the wild...

    Anyone for animals from temporary vernal pools?

    I have not found them to be sensitive. They only need soft water when hatching. They hatch fastest at around 76 farenheight, but they hatch fine at room temp, it just takes a bit longer. They need soft water and a 24 hour photoperiod to hatch, but I've found that they are fine with any water...
