    Nepenthes cuttings giveaway

    Wow, it has been a long time since I have been on these forums. My life got pretty crazy for a while, but I still actively grow my carnivorous plants. So, I experimented with cuttings since I have last been on here, and way more of them survived than I was expecting. So, now I have 8 rooted...

    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...

    Mystery sarracenia

    We rescued a new sarracenia- and I'm quite taken with it, but I can't quite put my finger on what its parents were. To me it looks a bit like a cross between minor and psitaccina. Any clues would help...

    We bought a typical VFT the other day and it had this white plastic ring covering the soil, and when we looked underneath we found this little guy: http://rs1268.pbsrc.com/albums/jj572/drbonest/Mobile%20Uploads/IMG_20160524_191340133_HDR_zpsmfev6dte.jpg?w=480&h=480&fit=clip It looks to my...

    Nepenthes cutting trouble

    Hello, I'm currently trying to root a couple cuttings I purchased this past Saturday, I thought they were doing okay until I looked at them today. One of them (a mystery cutting) has started to turn brown at the middle of the stem, the stem is still firm but I can only imagine that it is some...

    Grow shelf advice!

    Hi yall, ive been growing cp's for a few years here and there, and since I'm somewhat settled in my current place, I thought I'd set up a more permanent grow shelf. I dragged a free-standing wooden shelf from the backyard to my bedroom's south-facing window, put a few trays of live sphagnum and...

    Bringing pinguicula out of dormancy?

    Hey guys! First of all, let me start off by saying this: pings are just a mystery to me. I have killed more of these guys than any other plant I have ever owned trying to get it right with them. That said, by some kind of miracle, I have managed to keep 4 alive for just shy of a full year...

    Mystery Pot of Dews

    Purchased this mystery pot of sundews from a nursery that was unfamiliar with them, keeping them in shaded corners and advising me to avoid direct sunlight. I know the majority of the pot is either D. Filiformis or D. Tracyi (How do you tell the difference? Or is it possible at their size?)...

    Neps in Hawaii

    About a week ago I got back from a trip to Hawaii, the big island, where we visited a Nepenthes nursery (can I name it here?). It was amazing and so big and full of awesome plants that we spent about 3 and a half hours there. Here's a bunch of pics I took before it started raining. Some of the...

    Mystery terrestrial orchid?

    I have received an orchid division labeled as a "hardy Chinese ground orchid" (Bletilla), which I can tell from the foliage it's not. Unfortunately, I do not have any pictures of the blooms. It was given to me as a gift from a friend who grows it on an east-facing windowsill, with the directions...
