    I like toitels.

    Got incredibly lucky yesterday, and found this little guy struggling to get across four lanes of highway. How he made it as far as he did is a miracle. Tbh I didn't even know what it was when I saw it in the car. I've never seen a turtle this small, and thought it was a particularly slow lizard...

    Today I potted up a baby VFT "Akai Ryu". I bought the parent plant from FlyTrapShop.com. It arrived on May 3rd. It started to send up a flower scape soon after it arrived.

    Caught a worm in Cephalotus purched online, should I repot?

    Ordered a cephalotus online. It arrived "shaken, not stirred". On top of that I noticed upon closer examination of the plant an earth worm poking out to say hello. Worm was evicted with prejudice but where there is one, there could be more. The general rule of thumb is to leave a Ceph that...

    Anza Borrego desert in bloom

    Well, it's not quite death valley, but I did make it out to Anza Borrego park yesterday. It's been raining a lot this past winter, including yesterday (at least coastally) so all of the mountains are unbelievably green this year. Here's the view on the approach towards the desert from Desert...

    New Nepenthe Growth

    A couple weeks ago my Nepenthes fell in my pool as a heavy hailstorm pushed it in. It sat at the bottom of my pool for 30-40 minutes until I got home from work to fish it out. I had to clean its roots with distilled water and repot it in new soil. Over the past weeks it hasn't shown any signs of...
