    WTB: WTB: Pinguicula Seeds

    WTB: WTB: Pinguicula Seeds For those of you who have a lot of Pings and are good at crossing them, I'd love to be able to buy seeds. I'm looking to get some quick experience raising plants from seed and maybe even use plants for trading to build my collection later. Let me know your price and...

It also happens to be under a...

    Honzo's Texas Mini-Bog(s)

    Howdy, y'all! Starting a series of pots in the front yard. These will be fully exposed to the harsh Texas sun and relatively low humidity (generally around 30%-40%). My main purpose for this thread is to hopefully clear up any doubts that these plants can be grown in harsh conditions such as...

    Just Crossed These Two P.laueana Clones.......

    I cross pollinated these 2 distinct clones of P.laueana last night. I'm 100% unsure of the lineage of either plant. I will post updates here as to the progress of the seed pods and any resulting seedlings that (hopefully) occur from the crossing. This clone was purchased from an East Coast...

    Pinguicula 'Sethos' x self, selection from

    After growing out a large assortment of seedlings from a crossing of Pinguicula 'Sethos' x self, I selected one plant from that group, that, to me, was special. I propagated it, then distributed a few of them to select individuals (whom I have forgotten - oops). Here are a few pics of the plant...

    Drosera anglica "CA × HI" - Tacks $22

    Drosera anglica "CA × HI" This is one of Ivan Snyder's hybrids crossing a plant from a California population with one from Hawaii. The result is a large growing Drosera anglica that does not require dormancy. It will go dormant given the right seasonal cues. Grow it indoors under lights all...

    Drosera ultramafica × spatula - Tacks $26

    Drosera ultramafica × spatulata This plant was sold to another grower as Drosera ultramafica but being suspicious of the tissue culture source I compared it to the published description of the species. The plant fails to match on several key points - no stem growth, lack of red stipules and...

    Oregoncp's 10x12 Harbor freight greenhouse adventures

    Let me proceed this by saying I am a horrible forum poster. But I am going to give this a go, to chronicle my new 10x12HFGH. I have wanted a greenhoing use for years (probably close to 12). I have always been held back by a lack of usable space to install a GH. About a week ago I finally...

    Could anyone help with these Sarracenia hybrids?

    I know that Sarracenia hybrids are among the most difficult to identify due to the possibility of nearly all members of the genus crossing with one another, but could anyone help me to try and identify my two hybrids? Both hybrids are frost tolerant and grow well in full sun. Hybrid #1: This...

    Restrictions on Shipping Seed Grown Oreos

    I have many oreophila seedlings that I love having around for now, but I know there will be too many of them next season when I will have a ton of new seed to sow. When it comes to shipping them, are there any restrictions to crossing state lines? I was thinking of trading, selling, or...

    Before I start this thread, I will inform you that this issue is not the infamous Curved-Leaf Syndrome. This issue is not the infamous Curved-Leaf Syndrome. Yes, indeed, it is I, Plant Planter, the one with the uncreative name, and my "Cupped Trap" plant is ailing. Here's the deal. My lovely...

    for sundew guru's..are d. intermedia cuba and d. rotundafolia compatible for a cross?

    My initial research says they are but I am not experienced with this at all. My ambition is to make a drosera beleziana that isn't temperate by following the same template for the ivan's paddle of crossing a non-temperate anglica with a temperate rotundafolia creating a non temperate...

    question about drosera crossing

    I have several drosera pushing up flower stalks at the same time. currently consisting of nidiformis, affinnis and collinsiae. Far as I can tell the collins and nidiformis should be compatible since they both have a 2n=40 but couldn't find anything on the affinnis but I am assuming it is 2n=40...
