This was a very simple one to sort out.
The leaves on the Daphne were having chunks cut out of them. I was working just outside the Darlingtonia house and these pieces of cut leaves, accompanied by a Leaf-cutter Bee, kept landing on my shoulder. She was then flying to the Bee Hotel and...
Sup all, i want to build a small box type construction to put outside, and increase humidity within it
my problem is, last time i tried this, i ended up frying everything inside of the box, and it seems to me, the only way to counter that would be to ventilate it really well.. which would also...
I have had a Nepenthese Ventrata for 6 years now. For several years it struggles and didn't grow much. It started vining a few year ago, and a year ago I trimmed off some tiny sucker vines and some dying yellowed ones, and it took off. It has 3 vines, the tallest is 4 feet. I have it propped up...
As promised, part 3 of my escapade. Enjoy! :D

A small sea cave @_@
No idea why there's a freaking hole beside the beach. Made by human-sized moles, maybe? Lol
Some wild ferns growing on a cave wall
What a nice chunk of driftwood. Perfect for my reptiles. Now, how...
With my adventure to Denver Botanic Gardens, many a wonder had been witnessed for this day. I decided to take more pictures, as these are 90% of what crowds my photo storage. Sorry for the tater quality pictures.
You approach the turnstiles and know that when you get there, you have to give...
Skinny-dipping never ends! Lol

I have some U.gibba and Aldrovandra coming next month or so, and have begun to set up my small water feature for them. So far I have done the following with a 4 gallon or so washing bucket.
- started with a base layer (~1 inch) of plain kitty litter for clay content
- added a layer of boiled...
When I first got this plant a year ago it shot up then promptly fell over under its own weight and grew along the ground for awhile to about 10" before dying. I was distraught and puzzled as to why a plant would evolve in such a seemingly foolish way.
To my guarded delight, before it died out...
I wanted to raise the humidity, and perhaps build a sort-of swamp cooler arrangement for the greenhouse. Well, the project ran away from me, and I ended up with a really big, humidity-busting water fountain. I am happy with the results.
Here's what I did.
It took a trip to two different...
Hi everyone :)
I noticed some questions about orchid care, and rather than posting in all of the threads, I figured a single post in a new thread may be a better option.
Hope its ok if I do this :)
Most orchids are "air" plants, although there are some terrestrial varieties.

I have a lot of plants that need a stake in them - taller nepenthes vines, orchids that will spike in the future, other random stuff I'm sprouting. I can't find bamboo orchid stakes *ANYWHERE* in town here so if you can ship me some NEW (not used!) ~25 12" bamboo stakes and another ~25 16-18"...
There's a voodoo lily in my yard that I had wanted to divide this summer. Unfortunately, a well-meaning helper lopped the foliage off of it while giving me a hand with dandelions, and with a bunch of other stuff to do around the house I kind of forgot all about it for a while.
How can I find it...

Has anyone used these before? I saw these at the 99 cent store, they are beautiful. Since these are biodegradable, I'm wondering how long these pots will last, especially with growing cp's in wet conditions.
