    Carnivorous Plant Terrarium Planting Methods

    I think some of the best learing is by experimentation. Time will tell if things will work for you. Im sure they were persistant on their views in regards to fly traps in terrariums mostly due to moisture. I personally have lost flytraps due to root rot and have found that depth of medium is...

    Carnivorous Plant Terrarium Planting Methods

    I dont like the look of the purple/red grow lights. That is just my personal preference. I am currently using 12v automotive HID lights at 6000k. I am in the experimental stages still so any info is usless at this point. I do believe that 6-6500k is sufficent for most plants and is also...

    Mystery Weed

    I just went though this. Another member on a different site identified the mystery plant as fern gameophyte. Your photo is hard to tell but you could compare an online image of the fern with what you see in your pot. Sent from my S7 Edge via Tapatalk

    Carnivorous Plant Terrarium Planting Methods

    How big of a terrarium are you planning? I have often thought of this. I would suggest leaving out temperate species so you dont have to worry about dormancy. Do you have any progress photos?? Sent from my S7 Edge via Tapatalk

    Rescued VFT seems in good health, but soil is slimy

    I usually scrape the slimy crap off with a spoon. A top dressing of live sphagnum will help any cp. It provides antifungal properties and keeps plants humid. Live spgagnum is also a great indicator for moisture and light conditions. And it looks great too. Sent from my S7 Edge via Tapatalk

    Greetings from Canada!

    Hello everyone. I have been growing cps for a couple years now. I am located in ontario and looking forward to meeting many new hobbyists like myself.
