    refrigerator for winter dormancy

    I need to find a used refrigerator to use for winter dormancy. I have about nine 20 cm diameter pots to store. A used full sized home refrigerator seems to be expensive to buy, difficult to move, and expensive to operate. The mini refrigerators (2 - 4.5 cu ft) seem to be too small, but...

    Nepenthes & hydroponics: Preliminary results.

    I've been experimenting with growing Nepenthes hydroponically since March 2015, so for about a year and a half now. I'd like to share my results in this thread, and then give some details about my method. Thanks to TF member knuckles for sharing with me his experiences growing Nepenthes...

    Cupcake Carrier

    Last year I stumbled across these cupcake carriers at the $ store. I said to myself HMM!! those look like they would hold 9-3" round pots, so I bought 1 for a buck (big spender). Took it home, dug out my 3" pots and lo and behold the pots fit when I put the top on. Since I make my own labels...

    Success with unusual media for drosera

    Hello everyone. After looking online for quite a while, I found some growers tried using coconut husk chips along with sphagnum moss as a media for Droseras, but never found any results. Well, here I am to say what are MY results using a soil composed of 4/10 coco chips, and 6/10 long fiber...

    Did harsh fridge dormancy damage my VFT's ?

    Last year my B52's, Ginormous and G16's really took off. Everything growing huge multiple traps. Everything was grown out in my garden with sunlight from dawn till dusk. I put them into dormancy around November. Removing them from their pots and storing them in moist LFSM in tupperware...

    Local Garden Center Nepenthes

    Found these handsome lovelies at Sloat Garden Center up here in San Francisco, CA and was wondering if anyone can identify the Nepenthes in these hanging pots? Also, if anyone can tell me what brand/supplier these are coming from because I also see the same tagged plants at other garden stores...

    Digitalis laevigata

    I like to grow plants that are beneficial to bees, hoverflies etc. This is one of them. I grew them on in pots until the spring and planted them out in the garden. I thought I'd lost them to the slugs and snails, which have been particularly voracious this year, but MrsG pointed them out this...

    P. lusitanica

    Found these P. lusitanica sprouting this year in a pot of Calopogon and a pot of sarracenia generously given to me last year on my way back from California, cute little things. They were not there when I brought the pots home last year, so assuming they sprouted this spring from seed that were...

    Cephalotus "Big Boy" gone vegetarian?

    This is one of my (cough!) several pots of Cephalotus leaf cuttings which appears to have declared that, for the time being, wishes to be recognised as vegetarian. It'll probably change its mind when it smells the bacon :-))

    D. Binata seed giveaway

    Hey guys I have some seeds from my Binata. I'm not sure exactly what variety it is since they grew from seeds that were in the pots of some Sarracenias that I obtained last summer. A guess might be that they are of the "Triffida" form. The rules are anyone can join just start a numbered list...

    Quick question on Substrates before I assemble them!

    So i've searched this site's threads and many google sites to try and come to a clear consensus on substrates, it doesn't seem there is on (Which is ok! there probably will never be ha!). So this isn't exactly a question about "What substrate should I use", since there are tons of topics devoted...

    Has anyone found a good "Coarse" silica sand?

    I've scoured google and seen many posts on the topic, most of the are pretty old but im looking to repot some pings into a at least Mostly mineral based media. I've seen pool filter sand mentioned (#20 I believe), but i've also heard people say it's too fine. But apparently the coarser stuff is...

    Worth it getting a Terrarium for pings?

    Have been battling with whether getting a Terrarium is worth it for Pings? Im probably going to repot my pings into a more mineral based mix. (Im thinking probably the APS and Terfus, or a Mix of either one of those with Sand). I actually prefer the look of it (based on what im seeing in other...

    D.Spatula dying?

    Hi All, I've been dealing with an issue for a good bit now and I think one of the two of my D.Spatula plants has just about bit the dust: First of all my setup: Lights: Agrobrite 4 bulb/2 foot T5 HO (Amazon.com : Agrobrite T5, FLT28, 2 Foot, 8-Tube Fixture with Included Fluorescent Grow Lights...

    Forcing Dormancy/Photoperiod? (Plus some general Dormancy questions)

    So i have to say, there is a lot of conflicting information on Ping dormancy. I've been doing a lot of reading and i've seen everything from "They can survive not going through dormancy" to "Let the PLANTS choose when to do dormancy" to "Change your light/temp/etc... to induce it" For reference...

    regarding a pygmy sundew mishap...

    Hey y'all. Any of you ever get a pot o' pygmies knocked off their shelf? Did they live? Someone knocked a couple of my prized lil ones down today and disturbed the media quite a bit. I for sure lost a couple in the clean up :thumbdown::headwall::cry:, but the others managed to stay mostly in...
