    Ailing Darlingtonia Diagnosis

    I got this cobra lily back in June and it sent up two new pitchers. I noticed the red spots on the pitchers and assumed it was just bugs inside or they were getting slight bruising from something. But recently the red has been forming on new growth along with new growth starting to brown or not...

    Volck Oil on CPs

    Anyone ever use Volck oil on their CPs successfully? I imagine it's very much like neem oil. Received a shipment of Neps suffering from spider mites and my Darlingtonia have root borers eating the rhizomes. Won't pull the trigger until I get confirmation but I don have extra plants I could test...

    Getting a leg up

    There was another Drosophyllum seed germinated so off I went for a fibre pot and the medium. The medium was already in a bucket so I gave it a quick mix and filled the pot. Over to the Drosophyllum seed pot and transferred the germinated seed. All nice and easy until this leg appears out of the...

    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...

    CP Water Germination Experiment Phase 2

    I tried to germinate CP seeds in test tubes filled with distilled water, using a magnifying glass to easily see when they started to germinate and sprout a root and leaves. I tried tropical and subtropical species, mostly Drosera. I wrote that up a few months ago as CP Water Germination...
