    Refrigerator Dormancy Necessary for my Flytraps?

    This year I planted my first CP bog terrarium in many years, and I've been really pleased with the results. I wasn't terribly confident based on all the warnings you find online regarding the suitability of CPs for terrarium life, but after a little experimentation with lighting and the level of...

    Viability of pollen over time

    After a bit of digging, I found online that Drosera pollen, at least for tuberous plants, is viable for at least 3-4, maybe 5 weeks. I also know from experience that pollen is usually usable on (south african) plants for a few days after flowering but I have no experience keeping it in the...

    D.Spatula dying?

    Hi All, I've been dealing with an issue for a good bit now and I think one of the two of my D.Spatula plants has just about bit the dust: First of all my setup: Lights: Agrobrite 4 bulb/2 foot T5 HO (Amazon.com : Agrobrite T5, FLT28, 2 Foot, 8-Tube Fixture with Included Fluorescent Grow Lights...

    Hi all, im pretty new to the hobby but like with most things I get into I have to know EVERYTHING about them. Almost to the point of OCD. That being said this looks like an awesome place to meet people and gather information. I've been growing Carnivorous plants for about 6 months now. 2 Cape...

    Some pics before winter hits.

    I can already tell some plants are hitting the slow decline to dormancy, and the rest will probably slow down soon too. Because everything is outside in natural light, or behind a window with the same, even the Neps stop pitchering for the season once the hours of daylight dips beneath their...

    Sundews that do well with almost no water and don't care about humidity

    The Cape Sundew lives in arid South Africa, and I heard that it can go long spells without watering. Drosera Binata, the fork-leaved Sundew, supposedly can survive long spells without watering too. I have heard that D. Brevifola does OK under those conditions too. So what are the Sundews that...

    Drosera recovery time from mail

    Hi, I'm new to CPs. I just got my Cape Sundew from the mail on Thursday and I was wondering when they can recover and start producing dews again. Right now it's under a T5 HO light (which I just got last night). I set a timer for 16 hours. It's in the tank that gets up to 80 degrees. I got it...

    Hi All, I received this specimen from a friend in the Western Cape. Stuck it into the ground and it started growing. Does any have information regarding this plant? First time I have seen this exact plant. :-O It's an awesome looking plant, wish I had photos of the Mother plant though. Regards

    Finally, some good news . . .

    It looks like we'll soon be seeing launches from Cape Canaveral once again, as Boeing and Space-X plan on delivering astronauts to the International Space Station by 2017. For someone who grew up during the height of the Space Age -- many of us recall or even had models of the lunar lander...

    Interesting note on pollinators of Drosera Cistiflora

    Hello Everyone! So I had been reading an excellent book called _Carnivorous Plants of the Western Cape South Africa 2009_ and noticed something very peculiar and wanted to share it :-D. It points out the fact that Drosera Cistifloras natural pollinators are monkey bettles (fuzzy little things)...

    Flower ID Needed

    I found these growing alongside some carnivorous plants on Cape Cod Massachusetts this weekend. They grew only in the same sandy, wet habitats as the carnivores.

    NECPS Bog Trip - Cape Cod, MA - 2014

    Today a few of the NECPS members took a trip to a few bogs on the Cape. We visited 3 different locations, all somewhat close to each other yet all ecologically different. Site # 1 The entrance road and habitats where we found the plants . A fairly dry site, very unique among New England bog...
