    HALP! Rotting VFT

    Hi all, I just recieved this from a giveaway. The user packaged the plant up well and it should have been here unharmed, but UPS put a major delay on the package. The delivery guy actually opened the door to my apartment and threw it inside while I was walking to the door.... Anyway, the leaves...

    Rhizome rot or normal aging?

    Hey guys, I started repotting and dividing my Sarrs today, which ended up being more work than it originally seemed.... Anyway, when I finally came to my leuco, I found that the "old" portion of the rhizome was soft and brown. Here is a diagram I made: I ended up cutting away the old...

    Root rot? Drying out? What?

    So, after chugging along happily for three years, after growing from a little baby plant to a massive green monster that overflowed with pitchers, my cephalotus decided to kick it. I had not watered the plant for some time. I usually let the ceph dry out very thoroughly before I water again...

    I fried my brambles (blackberries) by keeping them in too bright of light this summer one is flaming orange now! I've been able to save one and it's started growing in the light-bleed of my terrarium shelves but I have recently bought a pile of various bramble cultivar root stocks. Now I have...

    Underground Growth Point Help

    Hey everyone. Hope all of you are having an enjoyable summer. I’m having an issue with one of my S. purps dealing with an underground growth point it seems to have. Back in February, I repotted the plant in question and found out that it had an additional growth point that originated on the...

    Blainville, QC, Canada Bog visit 2010

    What an amazing experience, walking on an 8000-year-old lake covered with a thick carpet of moss, seeing native CPs in the wild... I'm not even going to bother posting every photo, it would take me ages. Instead, here are only a few of them. This SLIDESHOW contains the entire set of photos I...

    Massive die-off

    Hmm I'm pretty perplexed by what's happened to my plants in the last month. Ever since I posted pics of my outdoor collection in the Greenhouse/Terrarium thread, I've come back to a progressive die-off of many of my Sarracenias and Dionaeas. Many of the tall Sarracenias suddenly shriveled from...

    Little Shiny Black Bugs of HORROR!!!

    I don't have any pictures because they're very small, very quick, and don't like being exposed. But I just discovered them early this morning in a couple of my plants, which were not doing too well. When I saw them, they were crawling over the rhizome and through the soil. I didn't check every...

    Late season this year for the sarrs

    Still no signs of growth from my outdoor sarrs. Not a one! No new growth at all, no flower buds, nothing. I checked the rhizome on one, and sure enough it's alive. My outdoor vfts are still asleep also. We had a couple weeks of warm weather into the 70's, I thought that would do it. Guess...

    B52 characteristics (outside banding)

    It's an odd coincidence that I'm posting twice today about two different kinds of banding today. This one is about B52, and has me kind of confused: I received a B52 from tissue culture from David Conner, which came in a "clump" of two plants sharing a rhizome and were in the process of...

    So one of my giant mini bogs is infested with very small black ants. I think I already lost my judith hindle and my 2 Sarracenia alata Sam Rayburn Resevoir, TX clones :( I noticed they would be growing fine and then the growth would just flop over similar to if the plants were drying out...

    I was wondering how everybody's plants are coming along and I wanted to say howdy to all the forum members as a new member.
