    Rescued mysterious, pitcherless Nepenthes

    Imgur I found this poor guy (or gal) in a dark, forgotten spot in a shop. I asked the workers how long it's been in there, and they said it's been for about two months! This plant is in great shape for the time it spent forgotten from humanity (I suspect the only thing they did for it was...

    My Orchid Terrarium

    Hi. This is my orchid terrarium. Its been in the works now for about six months. I will make comments as I go, but fire away with questions. This is the cabinet, a snake case I was lucky to get for $80 on ebay. I started by painting the interior with 4 coats of pond liner paint to...

    Root rot??

    So I noticed my N. x hookeriana wilting. I picked it up, and noticed that four ferns were growing out of the bottom. As I pulled them out the plant swiveled- it rotated around 360 degrees! After freaking, I tugged on it faintly, and it slide right out of the media. It only had one root! Media...

    Double pest problem on D. Intermedia?

    I had noticed my D. Intermedia had quite a few curled and twisted leaves and flowerstalks for some time now. One of the stalks ended up dying, the second stalk got... Weird. It divided in half, and it looked like a D. Binata leaf. That's when I took a very close look and saw tiny green bugs on...

    Akai Ryu from Flower Scape Cutting

    Today I potted up a baby VFT "Akai Ryu". I bought the parent plant from FlyTrapShop.com. It arrived on May 3rd. It started to send up a flower scape soon after it arrived. I cut the scape and tossed it in some live sphagnum on May 28th. On July 23rd, I saw several growth buds appear. Today it...

    Nepenthes cuttings

    1. I have about a dozen or so cuttings of my Nepenthes "graciliflora" (the "smooth alata") available for trade. This is a very easy and vigorous species that can grow as a lowlander and highlander, although it seems to be pretty scarce in the trade right now. I have unrooted 2- and 4-node...

    Help for a beginner having trouble?

    I got my first nepenthes, a reinwardtiana (highland red) around July 4th: I filled the pitchers with a few drops of distilled water. The brown spots and the small yellow leaf concerned me so I sent an email to the seller, but never got a reply. I also found a single scale on a fallen leaf...

    Success with unusual media for drosera

    Hello everyone. After looking online for quite a while, I found some growers tried using coconut husk chips along with sphagnum moss as a media for Droseras, but never found any results. Well, here I am to say what are MY results using a soil composed of 4/10 coco chips, and 6/10 long fiber...

    Drosera Hybridization, My First Attempt

    I attempted to hybridize Drosera capensis "Typical" and Drosera aliciae this morning. This is my first effort at creating a hybrid. I waited until flowers from both plants were wide open. Then I took some tiny cuticle scissors and cut off one of the anthers from the D. aliciae flower. The...

    A flower stalk?

    I think this one was a flowerstalk. I want to cut it because I cannot afford having a bunch of D scattered around.. So maybe nextime I will let it bloom, but not now. I hope there's still time to cut it down because I left my plants for 5 days and I came back and saw this. Flickr

    Leaf cutting

    This was a very simple one to sort out. The leaves on the Daphne were having chunks cut out of them. I was working just outside the Darlingtonia house and these pieces of cut leaves, accompanied by a Leaf-cutter Bee, kept landing on my shoulder. She was then flying to the Bee Hotel and...

    Overbuilding a Betta Tank

    ...because why not? I "rescued" a crowntail betta yesterday, and put him into a temporary tupperware home...where for all intents and purposes, he'd probably be fine. But I don't like having bettas in anything less than 2 gallons...my conscience nags at me. So today I set out on a DIY...
