    Where do you get your Nepenthes from?

    Hey guys, I recently fell in love with Nepenthes, and decided that I wanted to try growing some. Unfortunately, I've been having very little luck finding any. I saw people posting online that they bought theirs at Home Depot and Lowes. I wasn't able to find any at Home Depot, and didn't want to...

    Atlanta Botanical Garden's Orchid Blog

    I just learned that ABG runs an orchid blog. More interestingly (for me) is that this blog sometimes features carnivores! See the aristo photo below: That's from this article on aristos (and other carnivores). They also have an instagram, which features more impressive shots of the CPs. I...

    I'm moving this Saturday from Atlanta, Georgia to Ithaca, New York for grad school. If I have the time, I would like to set up a mini-bog planter a week or two after the move (either on an apartment balcony, or at the Cornell horticulture complex, where I will be working). I haven't set up a bog...

    CPs in Charleston, SC: Displays or Vendors?

    I am making a trip to Charleston, SC, next week and was wondering if anyone knew of gardens or shops that had carnivorous plants on display. Whether for sale or not, it doesn't really matter. I am just looking for a place or two to see some CPs I (hopefully) haven't seen before. I know there...

    A quick visit to Atlanta Botanic Gardens

    I went to ABG and met Ron Determann one of the heads of the gardens and an avid conservationist. He gave me a behind the scenes tour of their facilities and we had a great conversation about the CCPS and conservation. So without further ado here are what little pics I took with my iphone. I'll...

    What NOT to do with your Sarracenia

    I remember Peter D'Amato writing an article(s) about CP torture years ago in the Carnivorous Plant Newsletter, trying to determine how cold-hardy, heat-hardy, etc. CP can be. With that in mind, I thought I'd post the occasional horror story and/or warning by example from my own experience...
