    P. chilensis

    Here is a photo of my P. chilensis. You can see some seedlings, that are likely from a seed pod which I forgot to harvest. One of the amazing traits of this plant is that it is completely autogamous! The flowers of P. chilensis are very short, the stalk can be sessile like mine, or a few cm...

    Forcing Dormancy/Photoperiod? (Plus some general Dormancy questions)

    So i have to say, there is a lot of conflicting information on Ping dormancy. I've been doing a lot of reading and i've seen everything from "They can survive not going through dormancy" to "Let the PLANTS choose when to do dormancy" to "Change your light/temp/etc... to induce it" For reference...

    Overbuilding a Betta Tank

    ...because why not? I "rescued" a crowntail betta yesterday, and put him into a temporary tupperware home...where for all intents and purposes, he'd probably be fine. But I don't like having bettas in anything less than 2 gallons...my conscience nags at me. So today I set out on a DIY...

    Drosera capensis form

    Hi all, I got this Drosera capensis when it was pretty small a few months ago. It's grown now, and flowering, and forming a stem. I thought it was one of the "regular" form (whatever that means), but it seems a bit too hairy and there seem to be a lot of densely packed tentacles on lamina...

    pinguicula rotundiflora light too close?

    Hi guys! I just this little ping like a week or so. I normally keep track on my new plants and noticed that the leaves of this particular ping is getting brown. I'm wondering if its because of the the lights being too close? I'm using an artificial light that's around 8 inches from the plant...

    Pk93's Terrarium

    hey all! It's been quite a long time since I have posted anything and quite a lot has happened. I lost most of my already small collection of CPs over the year due to negligence on my part (things just dry up so quickly in hot/dry weather, and my cat likes to drink all the water out of my...

    Grow shelf advice!

    Hi yall, ive been growing cp's for a few years here and there, and since I'm somewhat settled in my current place, I thought I'd set up a more permanent grow shelf. I dragged a free-standing wooden shelf from the backyard to my bedroom's south-facing window, put a few trays of live sphagnum and...

    Artificial dormancy- how long?

    I moved into an apartment that gets only 1 hour of filtered sunlight a day on the patio. Probably 3-4 when the time change happens. Due to this I started using a 300W LED grow light in my mini greenhouse as artificial lighting. The plants are outside and went dormant in October. I just started...

    DIY COB LED info

    I made a blog post about how to make Chip-on-board (COB) based LED fixtures (here is the link). I included materials list, step-by-step assembly details (maybe too much for most people), information about driver selection, and measurement data using PPFD. Also I came across a couple of useful...

    Hello! Total newbie from NE Texas with a terrarium

    And I'm not *entirely* sure what I'm doing, but I'm trying! I wanted plants in my room at work, but it has no windows. I ultimately decided on a terrarium with artificial lighting, and carnivorous plants because they always seemed really awesome. 10 gallon terrarium with some sort of tropical...

    How often do you water?

    I would like to ask, 1. What plants do you grow? 2. What setup are they in (terrarium inside, outside au naturel, outside in greenhouse, etc.)? 3. Artificial lights or sun, and the amount of hours directly exposed to the sun and/or bulb(s) 4. Potting mix (rough estimate... 1:1 peat: perlite...

    Artificial lighting for CPs

    I used to have 3 shelves with all T5 HO setup. This year, I have reduced it to just 1 shelf while the other two will be LEDs. On a separate rack, I also have LED lamps (red/blue). All the setups are in ambient humidity which is consistently high by most standards. Reason for change: My...

They are outside in full direct sun 8-10 hours a day throughout the growing season, from about April/May to October/November depending on outside temps. Outside they...

    Drosera indica seed give away.

    Hey guys, I've been done with this hobby for a while, but I have a large stockpile of drosera indica seeds. I believe it is the "pale pink flower" variety. Though I know there has been some confusion in the Drosera indica "complex" the name I know them by is "pale pink". The plant's parents...
