    Hi from Seattle

    Very new to carnivorous plants, but have just fallen in love with bladderworts and have been a long time fan of pitcher plants. Currently doing a lot of research and planning so I can fill a large demijohn I've had for some time and this seems like a great venue to gain some knowledge as well...

    Sphagnum moss grows too tall.

    All the sphagnum in my bog keeps trying to eat my venus flytraps and sundews. The Sarrs and orchids are too tall for it, but everything else seems to be fair game. There's also a lot of bladderworts that got there somehow, and I'm really worried about them because they're really short as far as...

    What bladderwort for me?

    I'm looking for a bladderwort that is easy to care for, spreads over an area quickly, blooms often, will grow on a rock like surface, will grow submerged and emerged, can handle gentle water movement. What bladderwort is for me?

    Algae question

    I recently put most of my pots into a trough system as opposed to saucers but of course when it rains the trough fills up quickly which leads to the top of the plants being flooded. I know that most cps love being flooded but I have noticed some of my sundews being stunted in growth and I see...

    Let's talk about worms

    So I have this Utricularia reneformis that I picked up earlier last year that came in a 4" pot. It was fairly well filling the pot when it arrived and over time I would tip it and pop the "root ball" out to look at the traps and the progression of growth. About half a year ago I noticed, during...
