    Bryophyte (liverwort?) ID

    This is growing somewhere I pass by often and I'm wondering what it is. It's growing in deep shade, on stone, and has spread to the garden bed behind. It has shown some level of drought tolerance. Can anyone help? Edit: This is growing in northern Oregon.

    Matt V's photo thread!

    Just wanted to share some photos of my neps and their progression. I grow my plants under LEDs. The problem I struggle most with is low humidity but it seems like really bright light helps harden my plants and sphagnum (resist drought). Ive built a second grow box to house larger plants though...

    Zone 10 CPs

    Hey guys, I live on the coast of California in a USDA zone 10 region, the bay area. I'm curious as to what the best CPs to grow outdoors would be. Temp averages during the day are about low 70s during summer and high 50s/ low 60s during winter. Humidity tends to fluctuate drastically depending...

    Tuberous Drosera

    After speaking with several members here among other growers, I have realized that there are more misconceptions about successfully growing these plants than I had thought. I wrote the care sheet below last year for the NECPS members to use as a guide for their cultivation and I hope that it can...

    Drosera indica seed give away.

    Hey guys, I've been done with this hobby for a while, but I have a large stockpile of drosera indica seeds. I believe it is the "pale pink flower" variety. Though I know there has been some confusion in the Drosera indica "complex" the name I know them by is "pale pink". The plant's parents...

    Hey guys, For those that live in the Bay Area, CA are you having issues with your Sarracenia? This year my sarrs are doing quite bad, poor growth and some rhizome rot. I'm trying to figure out is it because of the funky weather we been having? Lots of hot and cold swings(100s for a couple of...

    Nepenthes kampotiana "dormancy"

    I recently received a small N. kampotiana plant that was just coming out of "dormancy", with several basals growing from the rootstalk. I had observed the same plant at a nursery a couple months back. The plant appeared suddenly "crash" and die suddenly. I had heard of this species going through...

    Greetings from central Florida

    Hey guys, I'm Dave and I'm starting to get into the world of carnivorous plants. After doing some research and some oohing and ahhing at pictures, I decided to get a typical VFT and a D. capensis, along with a bag of peat, pearlite and sphagnum mix. I'm hoping to grow the little guys outside...

    Pings go better with...

    ...agni-cola! That's P. agnata x gypsicola, if you wanna look it up, though this thread could have just as easily been titled A Tale of Two Pots. This first pot was grown at the end of a four foot fluorescent tube and probably was often forgotten when it was watering time for the others...

    Anyone grow Hippeastrum (AKA Amaryllis)?

    Do any of you grow Hippeastrum (or Amaryllis)? I currently have a ton, and have created several hybrids of my plants. I currently have 40 or so seed grown ones from well over 100. I've let drought and rot take these, to make plants even easier to care for. These seedlings are of various crosses...

    VFTs for trade - seeking non-temperant plants

    So after another year of dry scorching summer drought here in Texas, I've decided to throw in the towel and give up on outdoor temperate plants. I've traded away most of my flytraps but I still have a few 'Fang' and 'Czech Giant' varieties. I'm hoping to trade for any CPs not on my grow list...

    Back!

    I've been gone for a while, but I'm back now! Sorry for the unexpected absence. Starting in June, we had a drought that killed most of my outdoor plants. All that I have left outside are my Colorado Giant VFT, my Scarlett Belle, and my Dana's Delight. I'm crushed by the loss, but I know now that...

    Fresh seed of Jatropha berlandii

    Hi, I got this plant at a trade show two years ago. It has done well, the caudex getting bigger, but the stem portion is smaller than last year. This season a seed pod was developing from spring flowers and yesterday it disappeared. I searched around and found two seeds. I think something...
