    Pinguicula Caerulea care

    Hello, yesterday I picked up a pinguicula Caerulea, it's my first ping and I could really use some tips to keep it alive. I know it's a warm temperate species, and that I need to use distilled, RO, or rain water only. I'm in zone 9b on the west coast and I'm not sure if it needs to be grown...

    Has Grafting Been Used to Extend the Heat Tolerance of Cool Growing Nepenthes?

    A pretty common technique these days where one species or hybrid is a cool grower is to graft that plant onto a more temperature tolerant rootstock. It's often observed that a heat tolerant rootstock confers greater temperature tolerance on the grafted plant. If anyone wants to discuss...

    For Trade: Cuttings, Plants, Keiki from my Mom's (non CPs)

    Passiflora giveaway: 'Preciosa' cuttings plus Passiflora membranacea seeds

    My Passiflora 'Preciosa' desperately needs to be cut back--I plan to do it Sunday. If anyone can get any use out of some of the cuttings, I can send about 10 nodes (or possibly more, depending on interest). 2 nodes is enough to root a new plant, and they root in water. There's a good chance...
