    Nepenthes Greenhouse

    Hi Everyone, I have recently started a mini nepenthes collection in a small greenhouse I have converted to house tropical plants. This thread will just be a running album of some hand-picked photos from my Flickr page. I am really interested to see if you are growing some of the same species...

    New to carnivorous plants but finally got a really nice pitcher to add to my "living wall"[emoji2]. Climate here in Hawaii makes it easier to culture these guys along side my bromeliads & mini orchids. Hope to learn techniques & tips from forum members on keeping these interesting plants! Sent...

    Tuberous Drosera Cuttings

    Hey all, Ran across this (below link) from the VCPS, wondering if anyone else has tried propagating tuberous species through cuttings. I have D. zigzagia flowering and waiting to strike from a leaf cutting at the moment. I'm curious about specifics on pollination, sowing, and cuttings for that...

    Utricularia quelchii question

    I am new to the forum but I'm no stranger to growing carnivorous plants. I've read that Utricularia quelchii grows in the urns of bromeliads, so I also want to know if they can grow in a container of water. I've also seen some growers growing epiphytic Utricularia on filter media or sponge...

    New in the carnivorous world

    Hi all, You know how when you visit Ikea you always return with things that weren't on your shopping list? Well a few months ago I went to Ikea and came home with a Venus fly trap. My ignorance nearly killed it, but with some research I've managed to keep it alive and I was even rewarded with...

    Drosera Finlaysoniana Moisture

    Hey all, I have a some D. Finlaysoniana that I sowed a few months ago. A few of those seedlings are just now starting to leave the tiny seedling stage. The largest is about an inch tall and across now. The thing that I'm wondering is what kind of watering these plants want as they mature. I...

    Hello from Vancouver Washington

    Brandon here! Long time carnivorous plant enthusiast. Have had collections in the past but have moved around a lot and given everything away. Just settled near Portland and starting back up! Sarracenia and hardy drosera are my preference as I only grow outdoors.

    Hi from California!

    Hi all, I've been into carnivorous plants for a long time and always wanted to grow nepenthes but didn't think it would be realistic since Davis is practically a desert. Last summer I got a 60 or so gallon terrarium at the thrift store and grow lights and started growing some nepenthes, a...

    Nepenthes lowii

    Giving away this small/medium nepenthes lowii. This is a TC clone from Native Exotics which has proven to be very vigorous. It has doubled in size in my care in only a few months, which is especially surprising since it experienced ultralowland conditions all summer long. I am sure that a...
