    Some cacti

    Various trichocereus hybrids. This is my second year growing cacti. I've lost many due to mites. I've sunburned a few plants, underwatered others. I've gotten a lot better at growing them and have lost zero plants my second year. I've actually saved a few with might damage by treating them with...

    I just took two cuttings from my mother plant. I have been growing this for like 3 or 4 years outside of a terrarium on a card table under fluorescent lights. It has never really been in a stable environment where temperatures are consistently the same night and day season-to-season. In my...

    D. (schizandra x prolifera) x adelae - Is it possible?

    Hello folks. I grow Drosera "Andromeda" - schizandra x prolifera. The cross, or at least my plants, shows incredibly hybrid vigor. I've only had this hybrid a short while, say a month and a half, and in this time I've moved. This hybrid hasn't skipped a beat. To my delight, it has doubled in...

    Hello folks. My name's John. I've been a member of this forum since 2007, although the past few years I've been fairly inactive. I figured a re-introduction was in order because I've changed so much as a person from when I first joined, and no doubt there are new members to the community. Back...

    A mouse for my Truncata.

    My bedroom used to be an old garage. Anyways, I heard some rustling noises while lying in bed a few nights ago and my first thought was that I had a furry intruder! I set up some traps and I was right. I decided to feed my truncata. I've fed it a mouse once before and it digested everything but...

    Back after some time, re-introducing myself.

    Hello everyone. I figured a re-introduction is in order, because I've been away from the forum for some time, and I'm a completely different person from when I joined in 2007. When I joined the forum I was a creationist, part of a church ministry, and just 14 years old. As I got a bit older I...
