    ScatterPants Mexican Pinguicula

    So I thought I'd start a thread of my recently started and still growing Pinguicula collection. It's modest for now but I could see it getting out of hand since I like them so much. There are pictures I took previously of these butterworts over on my introduction to Terraforums thread if you'd...

    Doomsday's Trading Station

    P. Primuliflora care?

    Hi so I just found two primuliflora butterworts in this garden center today, they looked liked they needed a home. Right now I have them in a small tupperwear container that is ten inches from a desk lamp. I read online that they like high humitity. If anyone else has suggestions let me know.

    Help: Lights and just about everything else

    I currently have a terrarium setup for highland nepenthes. Everything grows really well for the most part. Although I do not use electronic AC, I think I should get into it (later here). I have various highland plants, however I can confirm that even some of the pickiest plants are doing well...

    I have a T5 fixture that holds 4 bulbs I am going to sit on my 20 gallon long terrarium I made. The light has legs so it sits a little above the tank. Can anyone tell me how far away they grow pings under T5's? How far should my light be from my pings. Also, where and what kind of bulbs do...

    mexican ping experts come (water question)

    this is my water report, i don't think it has* changed much or my fish would show it (they are very sensitive and their colors usually change when there is a difference in the water quality ..or temperature) would this water be safe for mexican pings, or would it be better if it were diluted by...

    My wife sells snowflakes and stars at crafts shows. I've seen all manner of things being sold - soaps, baskets, tutus, etc.... One thing that caught my attention is people selling cacti & succulents in bowls and ceramic pottery. So I thought maybe I can do the same thing with Mexican...

    Whats wrong?

    Can anyone tell me what is wrong with my butterworts? They are a vibrant green color but the petals are falling off the plant. They are laying flat to the dirt too. Is this a sign of root rot or too much water or perhaps not being wet enough? Thanks for the help! I cannot post pictures yet or I...

    I've had a couple "shots in the arm" with pygmy sundew gemmae and other assorted things, but what was once a thriving collection of butterworts is down to just a few. I am also missing a few basic sundews, like D. adelae, anglica, and aliciae. Here's my current grow list. Those with asterisks I...
