    My Orchid Terrarium

    Hi. This is my orchid terrarium. Its been in the works now for about six months. I will make comments as I go, but fire away with questions. This is the cabinet, a snake case I was lucky to get for $80 on ebay. I started by painting the interior with 4 coats of pond liner paint to...

    Trip to Goat Marsh near Mt. St. Helens (Pics)

    Yesterday four of us piled in a car and headed out of Portland up to Mount St. Helens to go see wild carnivores. We spotted Drosera rotundifolia and also Utricularia that we haven't figured out yet which species it is. The Drosera was growing on Sphagnum moss, we think Sphagnum squarrosum...

    X bill Bailey male??

    Hi there this is my first time posting here. I'm over the other side of the pond in Edinburgh. I bought a n x bill Bailey in 2012 in a small bio dome which contained two small plants, from a very reputable cp nursery in the uk who buy direct from BE. It is flowering for the first time this...

    ?? 4-season Container Bog

    I have a project in mind for the spring and I wonder about how to set it up. We have a rather small yard with a good deal of shade, but we have a sunny patio area where I would like to situate a container bog. I intend to use a cedar planter box with a pond liner or maybe a plastic stock tank...

    Natural habitat photos...

    Thought y'all would enjoy some shots from Shealy's Pond Heritage Preserve, a site protected by the state across town from me. CPs grow naturally there and it's just a wonderful place to spend time and explore. Who else is fortunate enough to live close to natural cp...

    Guide me through my container bog

    Hey folks. After doing lots of reading I've decided to try my hand first at an outdoor container bog. As I've mentioned in previous posts I'm in Texas, zone 9, near Houston. I plan to do mostly sarracenia with a couple VFT, sundews, bladderwort, and even a cobra lily if one would survive for...

    Plant ID?

    I'll try these again. First one came as a hitchhiker on a Sarr I got from Meadowview a few years back. It gets small yellow flowers, (done for the season), and turns crimson in the fall. Second one was collected in 2" of water in a pond on the Outer Banks near Corolla. Gets small white flowers...

    Fool-proof Adlrovanda culture... in a bucket

    Fool-proof Aldrovanda culture... in a bucket DISCLAIMER: not fool-proof. If you are a fool, this might not work. I didn't come up with my Aldrovanda approach. pearldiver (Paul!) did all the leg work on this. If anything I tweaked this setup to make it easier for me and less beneficial for the...

    Hi All, I have recently set up a highland tent. I have a window mount AC cut into the side of the tent and a bucket humidifier with 8 single disc pond foggers circulating back and forth from the tent similar to Kyles basement setup. The issue I am having is that whenever the AC unit kicks on it...

    Hardy Water Lily Giveaway

    I'm in the middle of a massive pond cleanup on a severely neglected pond. There are far more water lilies than this pond and our nursery can handle. These are white flowered, some tinged with pink, sorry no picking. I'll give a piece of rhizome at least 4" long to any participating member of the...

    Utricularia - or - What ever happened to the solar air pump.

    I finally finished planting up the pond baskets with terrestrial Utricularia that I'll keep in the trays I'll add an airstone each to powered by the air pump. I have the one pump left out of three I trialled so I'll just split the supply with a T junction.

    Pilularia globulifera ( The Pillwort)

    OK here's Fred with another wort. I have a couple of quarter trays with this fern in and can see immediately that it is super easy to identify in the wild. That's once you've knelt down on mud and decided that the mass of green growth isn't grass or reed and your high power loupe hasn't steamed...

    What kind of plant pot do you use ?

    Recently I've been looking through some photo of people's carnivorous plants and wondered the following: would a mesh pond basket be better for nepenthes than a regular one because of the air circulation ? In my terrarium, I used the regular square pots that the plants came in and they do just...

    Sideshow Turtles

    SIDESHOW TURTLES I love the unusual, and a couple of years ago I bought a group of strange hatchling Red Eared Sliders. They are now 2 years and 3 months old (and over 4 inches). They are natural deformities that I’ve raised up past the sensitive stage. Now they are available to you! They...
