I have been out of the fish hobby a looong time.
My daughter's friend has a small hex tank that she just put two mollies in. She got them two days ago from Petco. The tanks previous occupant, a rainbow shark had died recently(put in a unclean bucket during a water change).
She just noticed...
I see some pest activity on some plants that really need to be repotted anyways.
I thought about unpotting, and then spraying with the roots just wrapped with some lfs in a baggie before repotting.
Has anybody ever tried this before?
I am going to offer a N. 'Red Leopard'. I have had them since 2004 and due to a lack of pace, have some I have kept dwarfed in 3" pots. They are about 6" leaf span. If given proper conditions, they should explode.
I have given a few over the years to other forum members-if they want to post...
I converted some 33 oz cups I got at the dollar store to pots. They are six inches deep, about 4.5 diameter. I would guess the depth is more important than the width of the pot, but please give me your thoughts. Can you put five or six mature plants in one of these?
As I have said in other posts, I am doing a talk on cp for kids.
I happen to have a D. anglica hiberculum in the fridge, and thought it would be neat to show them how temperate Drosea Winter.
I would love to get one in growth(temperate form, if possible).
I have D. prolifera or D. hamiltonii...
I am looking for the above, in growth and mailed with pitchers intact. I am not asking for much, huh?
I can trade a N. 'Red Leopard' for one. I am looking for a variety, so if anyone is interested, or knows of a lead for me, please let me know.
Funny timing coming here and seeing Clint's thread, lol.
I am also looking for Darlingtonia of decent size, as I am planning on a talk on cp for a elemenary school and want to touch on the "convergent evolution" aspect of pitcher plants exisiting in several parts of the World.
The man who co-created the Dungeons & Dragons game and pretty much put role-playing games on the map, passed away today. I can not even fathom how many authors and other people of imagination were influenced by this man.
Sad day for me indeed, as that game has been responsible for keeping me...
on a whim, I looked up charcoal and found a site claiming it had nor more propeties than perlite.
Here is the site:
But the conclusion of this person is this:
In general charcoal should be thought of only as a substitute for perlite with identical value...
Five inch rooted cutting of N. x Masteriana arrived with blackened growing point. I snipped it off and put some fungicide.
Any other advice? What are the odds?
This is the third one I have ever ordered and the other two arrived with the growth point snapped off(never recovered for me)...
One more Nepenthes seed germination guide. This one is unique, but if you know Dave Evans, you know this really works for him. He would not recommend something he has not tried.
Dear Nepenthes Cultivators,
Nepenthes start their lives as extremely small babies. This letter is...
