    Hello from Belgium : )

    My name is Morgane, I'm 23 and I started growing carnivorous (and other) plants since last August. I already liked plants before, but the fact that I lived in a north oriented student room with a tiny window kept me from growing anything else than a bonsai. Now I live in a south-west oriented...

    Can you help me identifying my Nep ?

    Hi guys, I am the happy owner of an unlabelled nepenthes, bought in mid-november, I found it in some shop where the vendor didn't even know that this type of plant was called a Nepenthes. I've been very curious since then to know which specie it is, and I waited for it to fully grow a pitcher...

    Substrate for N.campanulata

    So I'm just getting into Nepenthes and other carnivorous plants in my vivariums. My first attempts were growing N.ampullaria from seeds, and growing sundews on a moss drip wall. So far I've had success. Now I have a N.campanulata on order. I'm debating putting it in a terrarium with frogs where...

    My first successful Pinguicula cross

    It is P. moranensis alba x P. agnata True blue. Although both of species are easy for grow and cross, I am so exciting to see my first cross flowering. It took almost 2 years from seed to flower. The seedlings

However, I normally never buy orchids because im very skilled at killing them. Also, I dont really know much about them. I currently have a vanilla orchid, but...
