    Nepenthes in vitro

    Some pics before winter hits.

    I can already tell some plants are hitting the slow decline to dormancy, and the rest will probably slow down soon too. Because everything is outside in natural light, or behind a window with the same, even the Neps stop pitchering for the season once the hours of daylight dips beneath their...

    Should I feed my Drosera regia? Put it outside?

    Drosera Regia From Seed

    I received a few inquires about how I germinated D.Regia seeds on compost. This was my first attempt at growing what I affectionately call the "uglies".
