For all who know me well (and those who can...

    So, we just had the most odd occurrence here in northern CO: a magnitude 3.7 quake hit just about 3 miles northeast of Greeley. Nothing major, the shelves rattled a bit and it sounded like a really heavy wind passed by. But I'm curious now: anyone else have regular experiences with quakes...

    Ethics of habitat restoration...?

    Hello all. As some of you may know from my other recent thread, I have recently completed my second tour of duty in the Army and I am now home after eight years away. Now that I am back, I am once again managing my grandmother's acreage for her, acreage that is prime habitat for CPs. The...

    Grow Tent Recommendations

    Hi all, My questions aren't going to be directly related to growing CPs (though I'll likely attempt some Helis so maybe they do), but CP growers seems to have a level of ingenuity that isn't necessarily around in other plant hobbies. I've been growing orchids for 15ish years now and have...

    Coffee and Nepenthes

    I don't know who here has ever tried it but over a month ago I gave several different Nepenthes plants a single watering of straight black coffee I brewed in my regular coffee maker. The coffee "treatment" made a huge difference on every species I tried it on (rafflesiana, mirabilis var...

    Hi from Georgia!!

    Hi everyone!! I'm Kevin and I'm extremely excited to finally be a part of Terraforums. I've been involved in horticulture for almost a decade. A VFT and an S. flava were my first two plants ever. Determined not to kill them, I came upon terraforums, D'Amato, and Barry Rice. The plant bug bit...

    4 year old Nepenthes Ventrata is all vined out. Need trimming advice.

    I've had my plant for 4 years now, and it kind of got a little neglected and was allowed to vine out when it reached that stage. It now has 4 vines: an 18 inch one, a 16 inch one, a 7 inch one, and a 9 inch one. All of them have lost the lower leaves and the stem has gone woody in that lower...

    Brassavola, anyone?

    Sorry if you clicked hoping for flowers. Believe you me, I am pumped for when my little guys bloom for the first time! But these are still small, so it might be a while. I am infatuated with growing orchids mounted. If you have any Brassavola, mounted or no, I'd love to see! Both of my...

    Hey from southern Virginia!

    Hi! I just joined this weekend. I'm very new to carnivorous plants, but my journey with them started years ago. I have a koi pond, and while shopping for bog plants years ago I discovered this crazy looking thing labeled "pitcher plant." The only thing the label said was keep moist and give lots...

    Major VFT pest problem.

    My traps were growing real great! Until the moths came. My house is old, and we've always had a problem with moths. I had read that moths rarely go at VFT's so i wasn't concerned! They all went downhill once my moth population increased. I got a trap, and now rarely find them around my...

    How do you support your habit?

    Hello again everybody! In the last few days I have been wondering what kind of jobs and careers help us to keep our hobbies going. In other words: "What do you do?"...... I will start us off with the fact during winter I hibernate and am quite the bum. During spring summer and fall, however...

    Back after some time, re-introducing myself.

    Hello everyone. I figured a re-introduction is in order, because I've been away from the forum for some time, and I'm a completely different person from when I joined in 2007. When I joined the forum I was a creationist, part of a church ministry, and just 14 years old. As I got a bit older I...

    Warm and Cold Stratification and Dark period

    Ok so there has been a lot of discussion around Nepenthes seeds and how to do it and I know there are a bunch of different threads on that, but I wanted to inform you all on what I've learned as a horticulture major and my theories as to how it relates to Nepenthes and their seed germination...

    I suspect that most of the people in the country are rather sick of hearing about the storm already. Otoh, those of us sitting within it's crosshairs remain interested. Last night, at halftime of the Peyton crushes NO exhibition, there was a great graphic showing the storm's predicted path. It...
