    Indoor terrarium, nepenthes and frogs... what is the scoop?

    Hey community, I have been browsing around the Internet trying to figure out if it would be appropriate to have either a species of dart frog or tree frog with my neps? At the moment they are growing under a compact fluorescent light and the temperatures don't get above the 80's. I am wanting...

    Recovering B52

    I received a bare root B-52 VFT earlier this summer. It was in pretty bad shape when I got it and it only got worse. I planted it in a mixture of peat, sand, perlite and a bit of LFS and watered it with rainwater or distilled water from the lab where I work. It gets about six hours of direct...

    Supplemental LED lighting

    Just wondering if anyone has experience with LED lighting for their plants. The technology currently available looks pretty amazing (though expensive...) and I have been toying with the idea of buying/building my own LED array for my CPs. Unfortunately most of the information available on the...

    Pitcherless Plant

    Yes, indeed, the one with the uncreative name has returned, with yet another question. (I have so many questions. :p) If you've checked out my photo thread at all, you would know that my poor little Nepenthes fusca is unfortunately pitcherless. I know that this is a sign that something is...

    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...

    Venus Flytrap Fertilizing?

    Hello, everyone, I am Plant Planter, and (surprise!) I have another question which I have not had success finding consistent answers for. (I have so many questions. :p) Can I fertilize my Venus Flytrap (in any way, shape, or form), and if so, with what? You see, my lovely typical Venus flytrap...

    Utricularia calycifida light levels

    Hey guys, I was wondering if anyone could clarify on light levels for U. calycifida. I know a few places have said they like lower light levels but how low is "low". What direction window would you grow them in? Any direct sunlight at all? Or if I was growing them under fluorescent lighting, how...

    LED Lighting

    For anyone who fallows Andreas Wistuba's photos on the facebook might have seen how he recently converted a lot of fluorescent into LED's instead. Doing some quick internet research on what might need to be purchased, I realized that most LEDs I've found are sold by the part and not by a full...

    Whitish Seedlings

    Several weeks ago I posted pictures of some Nepenthes seedlings that look pale yellow or very light green. I have been messing around trying some things and believe the faded look is due to too much light. I have several plastic cookie boxes and several 72 cells germination boxes with many...

    My P. primuliflora and P. caerulea need help

    I bought a P. primuliflora maybe a month ago. It was planted in a half peat/ half sand substrate. I kept it watered via tray method with the water level only about an inch from the soil level. The plant had a 16 hour photoperiod under 4 4ft fluorescent bulbs with 2 being warm light and 2 cool...

    Macro Pictures

    I have a Fujifilm S2959 14MP and can't seem to get clear closeup pictures of small objects like two week old Dionaea or three week old Nepenthes. Even with the camera set to high macro and I attempt to shoot pitchers under .75" it's hard to get a good focus because the camera is reading the...

    U. Livida - Growing Tips?

    I got a very small clump of U. Livida a little over a year ago. I used a mixture of peat and perlite as a substrate, and placed it in a water tray next to my sundews (due to space constraints), under a set of fluorescent lights, and where the temperature range is approximately 20-25 deg...

    Lighting Source

    So as I've mentioned, I recently moved to Madison, and have quite a spacious apartment...but all the windows are absolutely abysmal for lighting. So I think I have to bite the bullet and finally purchase some good lighting for a grow rack. I am planning on a pretty typical just 4 foot shelving...

    A year in the life of Cephalotus follicularis

    In June of 2011 I bought my first Cephalotus follicularis; the so-called "vigorous" clone from D. Hastings. I knew little about the care and cultivation of this mysterious species, but as is my way, I sought every snippet of information available to help me forge a plan for its care. This is the...
