I removed some decorative rock covering a plastic barrier and cut some slits in the plastic to plant some low water plants. I found vines of bind weed under the plastic. These vines were...

    Dahlia tenuicaulis (everblooming tree Dahlia) 2 feet (3 cuttings): Giveaway

    I basically just cut my sister's Dahlia tenuicaulis to the ground. It needed a little (or a lot) of pruning and rejuvenation. This is a moderately fragrant, magenta-flowered plant, which tends to be bushier than Dahlia imperialis. It also tends to bloom more year round, instead of just...

    Need A Large Tray-Planter

    I have been looking for a tray of some kind with dimensions ~48x18x6 inches. Does such a thing exist? I would think it should, considering how many people have greenhouses around the world. I am open to plastic trays of any kind that would be around that size, but I have not found any. Usually...

    Seeking ideas for hydroponic Nepenthes growing set-up

    I was hoping someone might have some ideas to help me resolve an issue with growing media. Several months ago, I began growing 4 Nepenthes in 100% perlite hydroponically. The plants are watered 3 times a day for 15 min. each (the minimum time interval on my timer) with nutrient solution. They...

    Nepenthes bicalcarata 1 week away from blooming,

    Hi all, Out of sheer luck, our 5-year-old N. bicalcarata has decided to create its first flower stalk ever! The buds are still too primordial to sex the plant, but it appears to be a male inflorescence. I am willing to send pollen--not particular at all what it gets crossed with--for a cut of...

    Sarracenia recovering

    I lost quite a few plants this winter but I have a Sarracenia that is sending up much smaller pitchers than usual. Should I dig it up and cut away the part of the rhizome that is dead or should I just leave it be. I'm a bit concerned that the dead part may have some kind of 'rot' that will...
