    Roridula Gorgonias, seed to flowering in less than a year :)

    I thought I would have to wait two years before these would come full circle. Nope, these two precocious babies wanted to surprise me for the holidays! :boogie: Presently, these two are 285 days old.

    So, How should I start?

    Feel free to move this thread if its in the wrong space. There was no 'questions about terrariums' section here. X) So, I already have a 10 gallon fish tank that is empty and needs some sort of life form in it.But I think little terrariums to put on my window ledges would be nice too, since I...

    Just some random pics from around my room

    Things are doing very nicely now that they are all settled in. I've corrected the problems the plants had when they were given to me, and have them healthy enough to be flowering and able to be cloned. Some of these were very unhappy barely growing, when I got them.

    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...

    Which Osmocote pellet should I buy?

    What do you guys recommend? In my country, it's not called Osmocote. But either way, it acts like osmocote and has almost the same ingredients. It doesn't have any urea so it's quite safe. Should I get 14-14-14 (NPK) 6 months for leaf greenery Or 14-9-15 (NPK) 6 months for general use...

    Liparis reflexa

    This little stinker, Liparis reflexa, is starting its flowering this year. There are two inflorescences so the resulting scent will be delightful as they open their flowers :awesome:. I can't help feeling that from a certain angle the plant is trying to tell me something.

    Passion flower

    Well I grow two different types of passion flower. Passiflora incarnata and p. Caerulea. The p. Caerulea does ever flower, but produces beautiful foliage so I don't mind. My p. Incarnata is at the end of its first year of growth and had a flower, now is producing a fruit with , I hope, viable...

    Newly rooted cutting flowering

    Is this normal? Should I try to do something about it or just let it grow? I have a second cutting of the same plant (aristolochioides x spectabilis) which looks like it's going to do the same thing. Both cuttings activated 2 nodes when they rooted as well.

    Cremastra appendiculata

    This Japanese orchid has a reputation for not repeat flowering. It's my sixth year to have it in flower so I'm not too sure why it has that reputation. It just gets on with it quietly under one of the benches. The information I first read on it said it was saprophytic so I've not re-potted or...

    Utricularia chrysantha flower stalks

    In January, my Utricularia chrysantha began to flower. However, since the container I was growing them in was too short, the flowers hit the lid and began growing sideways without flowering. In March, I transplanted them to a much taller container and the stalks began to grow upright. They still...
