    CP noob in Eugene Oregon

    Nice set-up, Odysseus! Mine is actually similar, but with the humidity tent (which my cat ripped open a few days ago). I still can't upload photos. It's not my internet, since I am now trying on a third network. I don't know what it is. Here's a link to a photo I added to my Pinterest account...

    Drosera pulchella Dormancy

    Question about flowering d. pulchella ...I know this is an old thread, but just in cas people are still subscribed to it, I thought I'd post my questions here. I have some rapidly growing d. pulchella that have started flowering. I'm curious if this is a species that normally flowers at this...

    Thanks for the words of encouragement, Odysseus! Yes, my drosera wasted no time letting me know how they feel about more light lol! I can't upload any photos at the cafe I'm at, so will wait till I go home, but, basically, every plant (except the D. scorpiodes) has developed some red on it...

    CP noob in Eugene Oregon

    Latest set-up Hi, bluemax: In case you're still interested, it's now been a month since my last change to my grow set up. I have a 35$ tented shelf from Target (in retrospect, I would buy a baker's shelf or something else and figure out the tenting myself. It wouldn't be cheaper, but probably...

    Heliamphora minor - cold nights make a difference?

    Sad update As I mentioned, I was having some very promising results with my heli simply by moving it to a window at night, where temps were probably around 50 degrees. This one change completely turned things around for this plant and I was feeling pretty proud of myself. Then this happened...

    Whoops! The change to my setup is that I lowered the light by 3" and also got rid of the jars (mostly) and set everything on a tray filled with pebbles and some sphagnum moss and water to encourage humidity. The humidity of the table has gone from 45-50% to around 55-65% percent, which I'm a...

    CP noob in Eugene Oregon

    Nice meeting you, too! I definitely learned some things. Here is my new set up and pics of two droseras that aren't doing terribly. I have gotto an LED light and a clamp for it, which I'll set up in a few days.

    Heliamphora minor - cold nights make a difference?

    About three months ago I ordered a heliamphora minor from an on-line dealer. The plant was cheap, and so very tiny. It also arrived with more than half of its pitchers broken, maybe a third of which were practically snapped in half. There wasn't any brown, so it probably happened in transit. I...

    Hi, bluemax! Yes, I'm planning on making this month's Portland meetup (I'm on the FB group). Perhaps I'll see you there. It IS a pretty extensive collection. Once I made a decision to invest in a growlight set up, I figured I might as well get my money's worth out of it...or something. I'm...

    Zindaginha's grow list

    Geez! Trying to write it all down is challenging...I'm kind of embarrased about how many plants I have. Here goes: CPs: 1. Nepenthes Sanguniea (from Sarracenia NW) 2. Nepenthes Ampullaria X (Spectabilis X Ventricosa) 3. Nepenthes (Rokko X stenophyllus) X talagensis 4. Drosera binata (3 of...

    CP noob in Eugene Oregon

    This past summer I impulsively bought a couple of drosera binatas from a local nursery and then, maybe a month later, stumbled across some butterworts and some very sorry-looking "sundews" shoved in a corner in another nursery and that was apparently all the exposure I needed to develop a...
