    Winter pitchers

    Amazing how some sarracenia retain nice-colored pitchers into the winter months. Some of these carry nice pitchers even into spring. Pics taken December 14. [/url][(leucophylla x rubra) x minor Okee giant] x Judith Hindle-2 by Djoni C, on Flickr[/IMG] [/url]Hybrid by Djoni C, on Flickr[/IMG]...

    Whats your EDC?

    Was just winding down for the day and did my "pocket dump" where I place all my EDC items on my smile side table and was wondering if anyone else in the TF is also an EDC'er? For thats not familiar EDC is "every day carry" and refers to the items you carry on your person on a daily basis. Its...

    Brand of sphagnum peat moss

    Yes this question does get asked often. Local nursery owner informed me that there were changes on the Peat Moss extraction/distribution market and the brand I used to get is not currently available. I tried several brands and generally found that whatever is sold in Lowes or HD (Premier or...

    Claims that Cannabis is Para-Carnivorous

    This thread is in no way intended to be an endorsement of illegal marijuana use. Indeed, one could infer from this discussion that consumption of trichome resin is harmful. One internet writer showed photos of cannabis trichomes, claiming: "There is no other plant like this in nature". I...

    Sundew Help ~ Confused and a bit Overwhelmed

    EDIT: UPDATE: 12.16.15 --- Alright it's been a minute since I've posted for help, I re-potted the thing in the moss, I rinsed the moss, and I've been watering it in a tray with distilled water. It's been in bright light in a window, it's not in a tank or anything but it's still pretty high...

    Hardy Lotus Seed

    I'm offering 10 assorted hardy lotus seeds. We carry 7 or 8 varieties of varying color and size. These seeds are the result of open pollination and were collected and combined from multiple seed parents, so no guarantees on what the offspring will look like. This offer is open to any...

    My first terrarium project and grow shelf renovation (sorry, long read)

    This is part of my larger project to renovate my grow shelf once I move into my new apartment in a few weeks. I've been wanting to put together a highland terrarium for awhile now. With the Wistuba group order at flytrapcare forums coming up and me being worried about the few highland plants...

    Solar pump set-up MkII / Darlingtonia House March 10th 2015

    This is the second version of a solar water pump in a tray for Darlingtonia. The first version which I placed in an existing planted tray doesn't really allow for a large enough flow through. So this time I have cut off the bottoms of some slated trays (see photo) at 1" and inverted them to...

    Anybody else have really bad local CP nurseries?

    I always see people getting really cool plants from their local nurseries such as Lowes, Home Depot, and etc. WELL, the ones around my house have NONE OF THAT. THE ONLY plant they'll ever carry is generic venus flytrap. I can drive a couple of hours up north to an awesome CP holy land but...

    Colchicine Supplier?

    Does anyone know of a good source of Colchicine powder. I am planning on experimenting on Drosera hybrids in the hopes of creating fertile hybrids, but all the biological supply stores I usually shop at don't carry it.

    APS with Zeolite ok?

    I have been meaning to try APS as a medium for my MexiPings for a long time. Oddly enough, the local Lowe's, Home Depot, etc don't carry it. A lot of the APS I am finding online has zeolite mixed in it. Is this an issue?

    Looking for a certain type of pot that is a certain size and shape.

    Hello. I'm going to be repotting some plants soon and I'm looking for a certain type of pot for the new growing area. The size of the pot needs to be 3.5 inches in diameter but relatively tall (at least 4.5inches tall) so it would be relatively narrow. It can be either square or circular, but...

    knife collectors

    I was wondering of there were any knife collectors around these fourms. I have been interested in knifes for awhile but never started collecting. Every knife I buy I use. Which is why my interest in collecting has been piqued. I was looking for a nice gentlemans knife to carry and saw a CASE...

    Hybrid Nepenthes Discussion

    So recently my significant other got into raising Poison Dart Frogs as pets. In that hobby, it is extremely taboo to keep frogs of different "morphs" together. Morphs are from different regions, and when they breed, the resulting progeny is "unpure." They worry about these getting back into the...

    Mystery Natural Nepenthes Hybrid

    This plant came to me as a Nepenthes stenophylla orginating from seed collected on Mt. Kelabit in the Bareo Highlands. It's obviously not stenophylla nor does it appear to carry stenophylla genes. To me it looks like a hybrid of N.hirsuta given the basic leaf and pitcher morphology. The frilly...

    Recommended Carnivorous Plants for Beginners (Generally Speaking)

    Greetings all, I am procrastinating right now and avoiding responsibility for just a few more minutes so I thought I would make a list of some of the carnivorous plants I think are best to start with- a long with some comments. This list is meant to be pretty general and is perhaps USA centric...
