    Coquillage: all that it's cracked up to be?

    I have some extra money on hand and I thought of possibly getting a coquillage venus fly trap, but I have a few questions. First, how is coquillage pronounced? Second, do they grow those unique traps consistently? Thanks.

    Hey all. I have a venus fly trap that I recently repotted, I could tell that their was at least one or two divisions in there, but as it turned out, their were 4, maybe 5 divisions in there.

    Red fly trap hardiness?

    I have been wanting to get a red vft for a while now, but I have heard they are less hardy than the green varieties. Is this true? I was looking into getting an akai ryu cultivar.

    Fly traps from seed

    I was thinking about harvesting some seeds from my vft's this year and growing the seeds. What is the best way to get them to germinate? Should I put them in full sun or the shade? Would they do well planted in a small pot with a water tray? Thanks in advance for your help.

    Venus fly trap soil.

    I have some venus fly traps that I would like to re-pot this spring. Is spring the best time or summer to re-pot? What is the best mix? They are currently living in pure spagnum. They seem to be thriving in it. Is this optimal? I have one that is in a carnivorous soil mix that it came in. It is...

    Fly trap with traps on flower stalk.

    Last summer I found a vft with a flower stalk that had traps instead of flowers growing on the stalk. I'm afraid it didn't make through dormancy. Has anyone else seen this phenomenon? Later that summer it produced normal flowers.

    Claims that Cannabis is Para-Carnivorous

    This thread is in no way intended to be an endorsement of illegal marijuana use. Indeed, one could infer from this discussion that consumption of trichome resin is harmful. One internet writer showed photos of cannabis trichomes, claiming: "There is no other plant like this in nature". I...

    Are there pots with clear, removable lids to grow plants in?

    I would like to have a pot with a sealed bottom to grow my sundews in. It would be great for two reasons: First, with a sealed bottom, it is cleaner, and with no tray of water separating the pot from the floor, insects can crawl into the pot. I don't have a problem regularly keeping pots well...
