    Tiny basal!

    Hey all! I recently got a Gantungensis from florae. I noticed it has a basal that has formed. I don’t really know what to do with it. I’m afraid to cut it because at this size, I don’t know if it could survive. At the same time I feel it’s really draining from the main plant since both are...

    My house Nep (N. x ventrata)

    I've never kept a CP as a house plant. I mean, I had a plant rack that was within my living space when I first started But never had a CP as a house plant. Some may remember this thread where I mentioned my wife brought a Nep home to me. I figured what the heck, may as well have it inside...

    Okay so my Nepenthes sanguinea decided to put out some more basal shoots(5 basal shoots produced in 2 months :p wow) and I was wondering if anyone would trade some utrics for some basals. I may trade for drosera or sarracenia but it depends on what species. I will definitely trade for a S...

    N. albomarginata green with little/no care

    Similar to a wardian case, i have left my lowland nepenthes untended for over three years in a glass terrarium with a corner vent and a side heating pad, rather low light and zero watering. The aquarium has two inches of water, coming up to just under the base of the growing pots, and mostly...

    CP noob in Eugene Oregon

    This past summer I impulsively bought a couple of drosera binatas from a local nursery and then, maybe a month later, stumbled across some butterworts and some very sorry-looking "sundews" shoved in a corner in another nursery and that was apparently all the exposure I needed to develop a...

    I grow all of my plants (VFTs, Sarracenia, Drosera, Pingicula) indoors. They're all in trays, in the south-facing window of a solarium that is glass on 3 sides. I supplement light with 2 40-watt compact fluorescents, 2 10,000K and 2 6500K daylight T-8 bulbs (meant for reef aquaria) and 2...
