Up for auction is a nicely rooted division of the "ant fern" Lecanopteris mirabilis, a great companion plant for Nepenthes and a pretty tough plant (seriously, I grow mine as a houseplant). Bidding starts at $10.00. USA only. I cannot provide phytosanitary certificates. Shipping is on me. If you...
This time of year in the Northwest we get a few ants that come into our house.
What would you feed the ants to? I have VFT, Pings, Sundews a few pitchers?
I tried a D.spatulata yesterday, came back 6-8 hours later and the ant was
still alive and kicking it's legs..
Although I was quite happy keeping these, I have decided it best if I go ahead and send off my collection of ant plants.

Hydnophytum ramispinum (Doorman's Top) AW
Hydnophytum sp. (Needle Leaf) AW
Myrmecodia armata AW
I can take a few divisions off my mother plant of this species if anyone is interested. It should do well in intermediate to highland Nep conditions and isn't a huge space eater. I'd be interested in swapping for CPs, tropical blueberries, orchids, interesting new terrarium material...
Hi folks. For the past several weeks I've been planning an indoor basement grow room. I created this thread to post pictures & document my progress with this build.
The area is roughly 12 feet long x 7.5 feet wide. Ceiling height is about 78 inches, 72 inches underneath a couple...
I have a terrarium in my room containing a mixture of carnivorous plants. Recently the ants invaded the house and a few found my Nepenthes, now the pitchers are full of ants! When there was only a few I didn't mind, however their numbers are increasing. The pitchers are regularly...
I recently (over the weekend) put together my new grow shelf. I plan on growing CP's other than Nepenthes, but there will probably be a few Nepenthes anyway. All further updated will be added to my photo tread here: http://www.terraforums.com/forums/general-discussions/139506-photo-tread.html

Today, I noticed a great deal of ants swarming about my Sarracenia. I was very surprised when I peered into an old purpurea pitcher from last year, and found this!
It appears that my collection has been colonized by a group of Tetramorium caespitum. (Any ant taxonomists out there to confirm...
I don't want to do this, but it's for the best. I am giving away some miniature orchids and ant plants. They aren't doing well in my conditions and I need to clear out some space.
I don't like games, so it's first come, first serve . . . if you meet these few requirements:
*Have been a...
This is for anyone who participated in the 2015 NASC auction as a donor or bidder (even if they did not win an auction). Completely free--I'll pay the postage.
Winner, chosen randomly, picks one of the following. I'll let this go through the end of April.
1) Begonia bogneri plant:
I recently mounted some miniature orchids and ant plants on cork bark slabs. The plants seem to be happy but I've noticed mold growing on the cork bark. I increased ventilation, but still, the mold grows.
Should I do something to remove the mold or should I just let it run it's course (and...
Berries are ripening on my plant all the time. I'll mail out all the seeds that are ready to go when the auction closes (probably 15+). They germinate fast, and may start while in transit. I'll cover shipping in a regular old envelope with live sphagnum for padding. Bidding starts at $1.
