    Weird Pest problem

    Hello Everyone. Recently I saw weird bite marks on one of my highland Nepenthes. I am horrible when it comes to IDing pests so I thought I'd ask what y'all think of this. The plant has been quarantined, but I'm still very worried. About a month ago I saw the same symptoms on my lowland Nepenthes...

    I want to vent a little.......sorry about that.

    I purchased two vent. x arist. plants from that (edited out, no clues as to who it is please) and they both arrived in horrible condition. That was last year (during the late summer) and I still have them potted and am taking care of them but I am afraid they are.....well, dead!!! The plant...

    Kyle's attempts at arthropod photography

    'kay, so be warned: I'm absolutely horrible with arthropod photography, so I'm starting to try and work on that. I think I really need an external flash, but the onboard one with a DIY diffuser seems to work decently. Also experimenting with lens stacking, but that's difficult given most...

    2 Litre Nepenthes Hydroponics

    Well, i've been staring at a 2 liter soda bottle, sitting next to my royal truncata (i'm ashamed to say the little baby is my only nep) and, thinking about the fact that my parents said they might let me get a ventricosa, i thought i might be able to make a long-term impromptu (if that's not an...

    Looking for Sundew seeds or utric plugs

    Hi folks. Back when I went through my horrible breakup, I neglected my plants and myself. I ended up letting my utrics and dews go by the wayside. I am interested in restarting that collection. Anyone have plugs they can take of their utrics or extra dews or seeds they can spare? i...

    Once again....

    Last year was a horrible year for the devil's claws due to horrid weather, weeds growing everywhere, and tons of pests. I got very few seeds, but still have some from previous seasons. I'm going to test how viable they are and plan on beating the pests, weeds, and weather (LOL) no matter what...

    My confession... I'm sorry.

    It had been a really long day, I'll admit that I was probably in a foul mood. I decided to try and go on the patio to watch my plants and unwind, so I wouldn't take the stress of the day out on my family. I sat, watching my water tray, paying particular attention to my Dionaea, hoping that some...

    For yourself, for your loved ones...

    One of my good friends from high school lost his girlfriend today. She was a wonderful young woman who had a lot of loving family and friends (me included).

    Any trouble plants? A list of trouble

    I am trying to make a thread on the CPs that you have trouble with. My personal problem was Nepenthes talangensis because it wouldnt pitcher. Then I forgot to water it and it went to heaven.

    CP Exhibit in Columbus, OH

    A few weeks back, I made the 2+ hour trek to see this exhibit in Columbus. If anybody else is thinking of doing the same, let me tell you...it ain't worth it. The giant fake CP statues are great. The 9 ft VFT that closes when you push the button twice is awesome, but it is in a greenhouse...

After horribly abusing it, it grew a horrible deformed leaf. Then after a lot of reading about that nep...
