    Some leaf munchers

    Eeeek there be holes and missing bits on the tomato plants. Well to be honest the plants can spare the extra foliage at this time of year. Here are the culprits. Lacanobia oleracea, the Bright-line Brown-eye moth caterpillar. Also known to gardeners as the Tomato Moth, I can't work out why...

    I visited the Oregon Garden in Silverton, Oregon for the first time yesterday, expecting to find a number of different CPs. Here is what I was able to locate: A small bog next to the children's garden in the "weird plants" section. The plants look quite new and not particularly healthy to...

    Darlingtonia/P. macroceras Sites

    Hi All! In late September I'm flying into Eugene, OR for a family vacation that will include a trip down to see the Red Woods. I'd love to see some Darlingtonia and Pinguicula macroceras sites while I'm out there, but it's been quite a while so I'm not sure where the best places to go are...

    Pots for Sarracenia

    Hi gang! So, I always wondered this: Common wisdom is that containers for Sarracenia should be plastic pots, rather than unglazed clay/terracotta. (Always done that, never had any problems.) The opposite it true for Darlingtonia, because they like their roots cool, and the evaporation of...

    I decided to get a Darlingtonia californica today at the SF Botanical Garden (aka Strybing Arboretum), partly was because they were selling really nice plants at a good price. A friend who volunteers at SFBG also told me that when he bought one he was told to avoid too much sun (he lives in...

    Pilularia globulifera ( The Pillwort)

    OK here's Fred with another wort. I have a couple of quarter trays with this fern in and can see immediately that it is super easy to identify in the wild. That's once you've knelt down on mud and decided that the mass of green growth isn't grass or reed and your high power loupe hasn't steamed...

    Darlingtonia--where to get

    Hey guys. All my plants died in the awful summer I had in Illinois last year, but I moved to Oregon and now I'm in a great climate for sarrs and VFTs as well as... darlingtonias :) I REALLY want a darlingtonia, where on earth can I get one? Seems like they're pretty rare. Thanks.
