    When's the next BACPS conference?

    Curious about when the next BACPS conference will probably be held. Should I anticipate a January date? Should I also expect a Bay Area meet or Sebastopol venue? I'm keen to head down there and do some snoopin and maybe get some plants to augment my collection

    Seed set up

    Here's the modest set up I put together for a batch of highland seeds- never tried Nep seeds before, but a windfall literally put some in my lap at the SF conservatory of flowers a few months ago (I contacted the head of the bacps to alert the grower :) the light is a cheap LED on a 16 hour...

    Hi from Minne-snow-ta

    Well I finally did it. I've joined Terraforums. I was encouraged by a fellow CP grower, and have been reluctant. I normally hang out on OCPS which is a small friendly community of folks, who share many of my growing conditions. So, joining Terraforums feels a bit like a first trip to a big...

    Drosophyllum watering advice

    I got a Drosophyllum at the BACPS show on Saturday, and I would like some advice on how often to water it. It is in the same two-foot terracotta pot as my old one which died. The pot is about two feet tall as well. The medium is equal parts of perlite, sand, peat, and vermiculite although...

    S. minor var. okefenokeensis (Ware County, GA - Unique seedling) lid coloration

    I purchased an S. minor var. okefenokeensis (Ware County, GA - Unique seedling) this past June at the BACPS show. As I watched a new pitcher develop I was struck by the difference in coloring between a fresh pitcher and mature one. I decided to take a series of pictures showing the change in...

    Bay Area, CA checking in!

    Hello! In April 2010 I was walking to the top of campus at SFSU and passed by the University green house. They were having a plant sale and I decided to check it out. I ended up purchasing a Sarracenia x readii and had no idea what I was getting myself into or how I  would get swept up with the...

    SF Bay Area roll call

    I know there are a few folks on TF from the greater Bay Area. I'd like to see if there's anybody within, say, an hour's drive of San Francisco who might like to get drinks, or coffee, or do some in-person plant trades, or just hang out. I live in the city of Richmond, right near the del Norte...

    Hello from California

    Hi everyone, I'm Howard. I've been getting back into carnivorous plants after a 3 year gap. I have a Nepenthes (not sure about the species) that I've had for almost 10 years. Here's a list of plants I have acquired in the last few months: Aldrovanda vesiculosa Utricularia gibba Utricularia...

    Who's going to the BACPS tomorrow?

    Hello members, tomorrow should be a fun day and a great opportunity to meet some of you in person. I haven't been to a meeting before and I'm not sure if my dad would drive me there on my behalf. I hope there is going to be a plant sale though. I'll let this thread know if I'm coming, but if I...

    Clue's Gone Overboard!

    On Saturday, I attended the yearly "Halloween" BACPS meet, which was tons of fun. Then, out of the blue, Doris pointed to the raffle table and said "They're giving away some Drosophyllum seeds over there!". I picked up a pack, and it had at least fifteen seeds, which is more than I really need...
