    What's your homemade strategy for germinating Drosera seeds in winter?

    I have some Drosera capensis seeds that I want to germinate. However, winter is soon upon us and indoor temps will be as low as 60 degrees f (~15c) in the growing room. I stuck an old adhesive reptile heating pad to the bottom of one of those disposal foil lasagna baking dishes, so now I have a...

    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...

    My OTHER Hobby

    I have a 'reptile room' in my house, where temps are a bit more consistent than the rest of the house. And during the winter, warmer, lol. I nap in there when I let the rest of the house get cold. Last winter was ridiculous - power bills climbed up past what my monthly mortgage payment is...

    Indoor Carnivores

    Almost all of my indoor carnivores live in a tropical terrarium in my reptile room. The only exception is my N. alata, who is a lot more tolerant of general household conditions (fluctuating temps and humidity) than my other carnivores. The terrarium. Husband made the custom hood for it, with...

    Pet Lizard Suggestions?

    When I have my own place, I'd like to get a lizard (I hate the word lizard, but reptiles is too broad a term). I'd like something that is intelligent. I once went to a reptile expo and saw a really smart looking lizard. When I came over he was checking me out and seemed to be aware of what was...
