Hi Everyone! Thanks for reading. I have a few questions about Heliamphora. I have been trying to read as much as I can find on them. I am wondering if you have suggestions on the best one to try for the first time?
I also have read that some can be grown on a windowsill, what is your experience...
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...

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...
Hi i bought this Nepenthes yesterday, and would like some tips and tricks on how to grow it well.http://i.imgur.com/zUUZn97.jpg
I currently grow Darlingtonia, Dionaea, Drosera, and Sarracenia but this is my first Nepenthes. I Got it from a Big box home improvement store. I know they need bright...
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...
This is what I'm growing out at the moment:
"Lady Luck" from Borneo Exotics
(I used to grow more Nep's but they grew way too large for my setup so I found a grower friend to adopt them)

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...
I lied... :jester:
If there is anything that I don't have for trade, but you are dying to have, send me a pm and I'll see if I see what I can start propagating for ya. I'm always looking for different clones than what I have, so if you have something I already have on my growlist, send me a...
Hi, i was looking at buying a few plants next week, and I'd like to try a Venus flytrap again, as the one i had last year did not do well(too little light I'm thinking). This year I know more about what im doing and im ready to give it another shot, but i have a few questions....
1) Light- my...
Hi i thought I'd introduce myself, I'm JellyMama and i got into carnivorous plants a little over a year ago when my husband bought me a drosera spatulata. I'm currently growing a Darlingtonia, which ive had since last March, 4 Sarracenia's, 2 of which i only got last Friday, and a Drosera...
