    Greenbottle fly feeding on salmon carcass (pic)

    I don't think the fact that you have a favorite fly is weird. What I think is weird is the fact that you can justify why that fly is your favorite :p

    Hello! From Greensboro, NC.

    No problem, and by all mean please do solicit other opinions. I am not a trained taxonomist or biologist- I am a hobbiest too. A trained biologist may spot things I do not.

    ID for this dionaea please

    I am not sure I understand. You had mentioned that you got these seeds from a CZ seller. If that is the case and you grew them from seed- they probably do not fit description of any of the named cultivars as most by description may only be reproduced by vegetative propagation and still be...

    Hello! From Greensboro, NC.

    Alight, sorry is I am being wild goosechasey. To be honest I am a bit on the fence about which species it is. - It is definitely in the rubra complex. - I think we can rule out S. rubra ssp. rubra and S. rubra ssp. gulfensis as your plant has yellowish pitchers and a dip in the front of the...

    Setting up a new terrarium - watering (and other) advice requested

    Hey, I respect that completely! It never hurts to ask and never hurts to try- its not like you did not do your homework before asking :) I would imagine that would be doable. I think that was just me thinking too hard, too late at night. The reason for the air stones is to oxygenate the water...

    Hello! From Greensboro, NC.

    1) Can you take a picture of the inside of the hood 2) and feel the outside of the pitcher tube. Would you describe it as having more of a slight waxy feel or very slightly fuzy feel (or perhaps you can look really closely at the outside of the pitcher tube an see if there are very very small...

    Hello! From Greensboro, NC.

    Hard to ID hybrids but do you have good pictures of the S. Alabamensis? (edit) Particularly, a picture of two of a pitcher viewed from the side- preferably a more mature pitcher if possible.

    how to care for sarracenia

    Hi Swamp thing, Sarracenias are not the fastest growers on the planet. However, since you did not mention it- when did you take the divisions? From the wording, I get a sense you may have taken the division fairly recently (please feel free to correct me if I am wrong, I will comment as though...

    Various Sundews from seed

    Interesting, how long did they take? How moist did you keep them? How many of the D. trinervia germinated?

    ID for this dionaea please

    Wait, did you grow this from seed yourself? If so, then I do not think any of those names apply. Most of them are clone only cultivars (you would have to check the descriptions to be sure). Even if some are not clone only, you likely have little way of knowing the parental lineage, you might as...

    Setting up a new terrarium - watering (and other) advice requested

    Alright, first off- not making any assumptions about your background or knowledge- if you are looking for something low maintenance I think terrariums are not the way to go- at least not real humid ones. Not properly maintained, they can quickly become breeding grounds for all kinds of nasty...
