    Please Help Identify!

    I just found out that these Agaves were mislabeled as Agave Utahensis var something or other. The pot was reused & the old label left in place so it may or may not be correct. A big thanks if any experts can help identify this mystery agave. ??? DSCN0137 by blu-bear, on Flickr DSCN0138 by...

    Mystery Heli

    Hi guys, I've had this particular Heliamphora for 3-7 years, but during one or more re-pottings (and a head spinning schedule of full time work/full time school for vet tech and, at 50, "due to the old age" as one of my girlfriend's Italian friend is want to say) I've lost track of what it is...

    Mystery Drosera

    Hi all, I had this Drosera pop up in one of my pots so I replanted it into a single pot and got it growing in my Terrarium as it did not like the heat outside for some reason (died back to the root). The Drosera did not grow from seed, I think rather from roots already in the pot as it grew...

    I've been working on this all winter and I'm amazed nothing died!

    I have this pretty large area of rock bed in the front of my house, with some large collector's boulders my dad I picked up some places years ago. I always thought it needed something more than rocks and a single gnarly-growing Texas sage bush, so late last fall/this winter, I have been steadily...

    Mystery Utricularia?

    Ok, so I think I've got some mystery Utricularia hanging out with my capensis, and I can't quite identify it. The flower scapes are small, just above an inch long. Any thoughts?

    What kind of damage is this and how do I fix it?

    A little over 2 weeks ago I purchased a mystery nep (I suspect N. x ventrata). Keep in mind I have never attempted growing a nep in a window before, but I got out the light meter and found the best location for it and crossed my fingers. Things are not going so well. About a week in the older...

    Mystery aquatic utric for two

    Hi there, A recently set up outdoor tank has yielded seven or more no-id aquatic utric plants. A recent thus far non-successful attempt to sprout some other aquatic seeds has made me wonder if I had some tiny seed hitch-hikers. Of something else. Or who knows? Maybe netting out prey from...

    Mystery Drosera

    This little guy came to me in a pot of D. spathulata last year. I have a few guesses, and I've had a few people give me different answers. I want to see what you guys have to say. I don't have a photo of the flower.

    Mystery pest

    Just found 2 unknown bugs in my nepenthes pot, infestation doesn't seem high for either, but I don't know what they are, so I am very concerned. 1st. Very very small, about the size of these periods, maybe even smaller. Dark colored, either black or dark brown it is hard to say. They like the...

    Interest in determining soil nitrogen concentrations?

    I've always been interested in taking the superstition and mystery out of the cultivation of CPs. In the past I've had the opportunity to do so from a cultivation angle, now I have more-quantitative tools available. I'll often see discussions of old media coming up. Many repot religiously to...
