    Hello from Ontario.

    Just getting back into the hobby after being away for many years. I recently picked up a Nepenthes and a couple of VFT from a local garden center, also have a variety of seed on the way. Been reading the forum for a few weeks and have plans to build an LED grow light based on a couple of posts...

    Questions about starting a mini bog garden.

    Hi. I haven't been on in a while, but I'm back and trying for yet another time to see if I can get this right. I've found a basin which I think might work for a mini bog garden. All I need to do is drill some holes in it. Will this basin work? It's roughly about 9 inches long by 5 inches wide...

    Mr. Rizzi and friends

    I’ve had my P. ‘John Rizzi’ for just under a year, and this week it bloomed for the first time. Actually a few of my pings are putting on a show currently, so I thought I’d share some of the colorful display that is so welcome during this time of year. P. ‘John Rizzi’ – I believe the...

    New Member, Starting terrarium fairy garden with daughter to interest her in plants

    Only CP is a flytrap that I bought her. I have never been a fan of plants until my grandma passed and I inherited her houseplants...now I've got them everywhere. I like the biological side of plants. I like learning native habitat so that I can match in vitro habitat to the plant. My...

    Paracarnivorous lady in my garden

    Hi everybody! I share with you some pictures of a mystery plant that grows naturally in my garden (as a weed). Viscosity of the substance produced by trichomes is far more efficient than with droseras. I'd like to identify it (at least the family name) Is it, according to you, a...

    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...

    Did harsh fridge dormancy damage my VFT's ?

    Last year my B52's, Ginormous and G16's really took off. Everything growing huge multiple traps. Everything was grown out in my garden with sunlight from dawn till dusk. I put them into dormancy around November. Removing them from their pots and storing them in moist LFSM in tupperware...

    Drosera anglica seeds for trade

    Hey folks. I just harvested this season's D. anglica seeds from my bog garden. I have a number of ripe looking seed pods that are starting to leak seeds. I'd love to trade them all in bulk or bit by bit depending on what you have to offer. These are temperate plants from the southeast...

    Local Garden Center Nepenthes

    Found these handsome lovelies at Sloat Garden Center up here in San Francisco, CA and was wondering if anyone can identify the Nepenthes in these hanging pots? Also, if anyone can tell me what brand/supplier these are coming from because I also see the same tagged plants at other garden stores...

    Digitalis laevigata

    I like to grow plants that are beneficial to bees, hoverflies etc. This is one of them. I grew them on in pots until the spring and planted them out in the garden. I thought I'd lost them to the slugs and snails, which have been particularly voracious this year, but MrsG pointed them out this...

    Forcing Dormancy/Photoperiod? (Plus some general Dormancy questions)

    So i have to say, there is a lot of conflicting information on Ping dormancy. I've been doing a lot of reading and i've seen everything from "They can survive not going through dormancy" to "Let the PLANTS choose when to do dormancy" to "Change your light/temp/etc... to induce it" For reference...

    Garden table from kmart

    I was dragged against my will to Kmart Sunday. In my area all of the stores are closing and selling everything. I got this table for $30. Worth checking out if you have one near you.

    My newest, simplist bog garden. (Sharing pics)

    Just got this set up a few days ago. It is made out of a 33 gallon extra long aquarium I found at a garage sale for $5. So far it only has some simple, common sarrs in it but I hope to add some rarities in the future. The whole thing: One of my favorites, S. Minor: A simple but beautiful...
