    Looking For (To Buy) Genlisea and Drosera

    Hi, I am looking for an easy to grow, more or less, Genlisea. I prefer the perennial kind. I really don't have anything worth trading so I'm buying. The Genlisea has priority but if you have an easy to grow Drosera, too, that can handle low humidity then let me know. I might be interested in...

    D. schizandra 'Andromeda' not looking great

    Hi all, I'm pretty experienced with Drosera but this one has me puzzled. I receiving a young "Andromeda" from a friend so I quickly put it in some peat and in my terrarium. High intensity LEDs, 90%+ RH, and around 78-80 degrees. The color wasn't looking too good and the existing leaves weren't...

    Highland vs lowland

    Could use a little clarification on this. I thought highland Nepenthes had to be in a tank for humidity but I also so lowland set ups. Should they both be in one or am I just confused?

    Nep lights timing

    Anyone have any experience with growing Neps under lights during the nighttime? Electricity prices are cheaper at night so it's more economical to run your grow lights then instead of during the day time. I wanted to run my lights 13 hours on/11 hours off from 8pm-9am or something similar, but I...

    Anybody know anything about Nepenthes pitopangii?

    This species is very new in cultivation, so there isn't much information I've been able to find about it. It seems to be considered an intermediate grower in most places, but the type specimen was found at 1800m, and the second population at 1400m, so it seems like it could be a...

    Shadehouse Question

    Hi everyone, just wondering if the position of this shade house looks ok? I took this photo around 3pm so the Sun shines in the left side of it, the 2nd photo is of the right side and the Sun comes up just above that fencing. All the plants/seeds in there get some shade throughout the day. I'm...

    Unidentified Cactus

    I bought this guy a year ago, and it's been growing very well in a huge variety of conditions (high humidity, low humidity, full shade, full sun, etc), but I dont know it's species. It has never flowered, too. Can someone identify it?

    About N. Mirabilis x Gracilis

    Does anyone have some experience with this hybrid? I may grab one soon, so I wanted some basic information about it. I've seen it's a hybrid of two lowlanders, so I'm concerned about my 3-5°C minimum temperature during winter (I plan to grow it outdoors). Is it tolerant of low temperatures...

    Tuberous Drosera Cuttings

    Hey all, Ran across this (below link) from the VCPS, wondering if anyone else has tried propagating tuberous species through cuttings.

    Recommendations for small-flowered orchid that can tolerate a little shade?

    Everytime I see a bunch of orchids at the local orchid society meetings, I'm always drawn to the weird little small-flowered ones (flowers smaller than a US quarter or nickel). I don't know what many of them are, but a lot seem to be Restrepia and Pleurothallis. I did some research and it seems...

    Light for Nepenthes

    Normally I grow my Nepenthes outdoors, but winters here are a bit too cold for the lowland species (Zone 9a). Last year, I tried putting them on a shelf by a windowsill (no supplemental lighting) and kept them in trays, but some of them did not make it through the winter. I've decided to get...
