    Female Nepenthes hamata

    I dare say there are two likely reasons behind this. First is that people are probably confusing AW clipeata clones which, to date, have all proven to be male. Second, for a time a few years back the anti-TC crowd was pushing the idea that something about the TC process meant that all Neps came...

    Tuberous Drosera

    When I was growing these I lived in Atlanta so it is absolutely doable. Check my pinned thread for more details Impressive list. These were among my favorites as well. Been contemplating trying them again but I just do not have the time that I used to have...

    Tuberous Drosera

    I realize I am a bit late to this party but I am not on here that frequently anymore. I would like to make a small comment This information is not correct, D. gigantea does indeed produce the papery coating. It is however, very thin and very easily displaced so you likely are not seeing it...

    large sarracenia giveaway #2

    The rather blatant contradiction, by your own hand, in these two posts bothers me greatly. Further I find it ironic that you would trash someone as failing in their obligation when you happily admit to having: Someone had an unexpected glitch with technology (which happens in this day and...

    Seeking Genlisea

    Some of us could do with out your condescension. You had an issue with one Mod and so you chose to make a very public bash at all Mods. Airing out your personal grievances in such a public soapbox manner is not cool. Nor is it particularly tactful. Also, I can tell you one person who is always...

    Seeking Genlisea

    And while I can understand a level of frustration at that one Mod in particular, using that single case to make the broad, sweeping statement that all the Mods here just plain do not care if people get ripped off is perhaps going a bit too far. Yes? If you are bothered with how one Mod handled...

    Seeking Genlisea

    This is a patently untrue statement. If there is a problem bring it to a Mod and it will be dealt with. If you feel that the Mod you went to is not helping you then go to a different Mod or the Admin. We are all rather easy to reach Years ago I had an issue with this same person, took him a...

    My apologies..

    If you really truly wanted to us this thread to apologize for your bad actions then I am sorry but, as far as I personally am concerned, apology not accepted. You do not use an apology thread as just one more way to attack people. The report button is there for any one to use whenever they see...

    Germinating Drosera cistiflora Seeds

    The second link that NaN posted was my bible when I was growing this species from seed. I had pots and pots and pots of them doing it Phil's way. No tricks needed, no fancy hoops to jump through.

    Which kind(s) of cp do YOU hate?

    My comment was more directed as a shotgun blast over all rather than a rifle shot at one. I understand your intent and I agree that members should be able to express their opinions on likes and dislikes... I am all for people having friendly discussions about their likes and dislikes as long as...

    Utricularia reniformis, wet feet, and eating

    Do not let him fool you, he knows a good deal :p RL and Rattler pretty much nailed it. Orchidioides and Iperua generally prefer it drier. The problem here is semantics. When I say "wet feet" I mean pots placed in trays with sitting water in them, the way you would grow things like dichotoma...

    the red coats are coming! the red coats are coming!

    Best of luck to you, these guys can be truly brutal on even the best of us growers. And the real kick in the teeth is when you get them through three seasons and have flowers coming up and then the damn slugs discover them...

    Calling all Mycorrhizal Users

    The antagonistic behavior of B. subi vs. Tricho is almost certainly something that occurs with specific strains of B. subi. Some strains harbor a gene complex (skf operon) that appears to be active under starvation/low-nutrient level conditions as a means for the Bacillus to prey on...

    TC mutation or cultural issue?

    A few years ago there was an article in CPN about another Nep that someone had that did this. It is just some freak thing.

    Pinguicula Yucca Do 1714 is actually Pinguicula cyclosecta?

    Ah... I see what you are driving at. What you have to remember was that they were collected by a guy who knew very little about Pings. All he knew was that they were Pings so when he collected them he just gave them codes. The codes were all ABG had when I took them on and I kept the codes...
