    Viability of pollen over time

    After a bit of digging, I found online that Drosera pollen, at least for tuberous plants, is viable for at least 3-4, maybe 5 weeks. I also know from experience that pollen is usually usable on (south african) plants for a few days after flowering but I have no experience keeping it in the...

    Unidentified Cactus

    I bought this guy a year ago, and it's been growing very well in a huge variety of conditions (high humidity, low humidity, full shade, full sun, etc), but I dont know it's species. It has never flowered, too. Can someone identify it?

    Lithops flower

    I've had this particular Lithops for 4 or 5 years now but I think this is the first time it's flowered. I have no idea what species it is but it's a lot more resilient than many species I used to have (and consequently why it's still around). <a data-flickr-embed="true"...

    Amorphophallus konjac Bulbs

    I have 3 Amorphophallus konjac bulbs up for trade. One is a fatty, the other two are young, but growing. I got the big one a while ago from DragonsEye (so you know they are the real deal) and the small ones came off the fatty. They have not flowered for me yet, but the big one should flower...

    Nepenthes cuttings

    1. I have about a dozen or so cuttings of my Nepenthes "graciliflora" (the "smooth alata") available for trade. This is a very easy and vigorous species that can grow as a lowlander and highlander, although it seems to be pretty scarce in the trade right now. I have unrooted 2- and 4-node...

    Heliamphora Damage

    My H. Nutans Giant was recently chewed over by a grasshopper, and now has become so stressed that two of it's growth points died (to be fair the grasshopper did serious damage). I'm not really sure what to do for the plant at the moment, as I've never seen it so stressed out. I've attached some...

    Female Flower?

    My n. x ventrata flowered recently. This is a female flower, right? How do you know if it's ready for pollen?

    Pinguicula pollinated!

    Hey TF. I've successfully pollinated a Mexican ping for the first time. My two p. moctezumae clones flowered together. This was at least two weeks ago. The corolla has fallen off, and the ovary is very visibly swollen. How long does it usually take for seed to ripen? What are common practices...

    Feels good to be back!

    After being away from my plants for a few months, this is what I came home to: My Utricularia amethystina flowered! Unfortunately I missed a few flowers of other species while I was away.

    Drosophyllum with company in sandy pine forest soil

    Last winter I got quite a lot Drosophyllum seeds and put them in my special pots. In early spring the started to germinate. The first eleven I planted in a pot with soil from a very poor sandy pine forest. Lots of roots included from Vaccinium vitis-idaea for possible mycorrhiza partners. From...

    Dionaea M. 'Jaws' Progression

    Figured I'd add this here... I've got some succession pictures for you. First, though, I will give you some background on this plant. It came out of dormancy this past spring and flowered for me, because I wanted to get seed from it, and my FTS Maroon Monster was flowering and I thought that...

    Giveaway Part III - Unided Utricularia nelumbifolia or maybe reniformis

    Another of those that just has not flowered for me yet. I'd give it a 50% chance there is a label somewhere in that pot :) Either way it really could only be nelumbifolia or reniformis unless someone knows of a third possibility. Easy grower for me, I've ignored it and it is still here...

    Giveaway Part II - Unided Terrestrial/Semi Aquatic Utricularia

    This Utric was sent to me under the wrong ID about oh 10 years ago and it has never flowered for me or anyone I've sent it too. Pretty easy grower, probably needs repotting or something. Very likely U. tricolor but without flowers... Continental US only and we don't ship to CA anymore...
