    Do CP's Rot in Water?

    Hey everyone, I had a quick question. I've got several CP's, from S. Leuchophylla 'Hurricane Creek', to some D. Akai Ryu, to some mystery VFT's and Sarr from lowes. I haven't had issues in the past. I live in Zone 8A in SC. I grow them all in a various mixtures of sand and peat moss, per...

    Why is it important to water Dendrochilum from the bottom rather than from overhead?

    I just acquired a Dendrochilum (unknown species) division. I've been searching on google for care instructions and many sources say that Dendrochilum should be watered from the bottom, and not the top. Why is this? I know that some orchids are very sensitive to water in the leaf axils and are...

    Tillandsia Aeranthos help...

    Hello all. I'm new here. About 10 months ago I received as a gift a tillandsia aeranthos attached to a ceramic skull. I watered it every week or so, with hard water, overnight anywhere from 1-3 days depending on if I would remember to pull it out. It has also been in my kitchen the entire...

    Rhizome Rot

    So I have this giant colony of sarracenia leucophyllia that lives in a very large pot - probably a 12" pot or more. Thing popped nine or ten pitchers this fall and looks great. I was cleaning out the older dead pitchers, and got a whiff of a really sweet rotting smell, and some of the dead came...

    Root rot??

    So I noticed my N. x hookeriana wilting. I picked it up, and noticed that four ferns were growing out of the bottom. As I pulled them out the plant swiveled- it rotated around 360 degrees! After freaking, I tugged on it faintly, and it slide right out of the media. It only had one root! Media...

    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...

    Drosera rotundifolia help - root rot?

    Hello, I managed to grow a few Drosera rotundifolia plants from seed. They've been doing nicely outside under sheltered sunlight since their sowing (I'm in temperate zone so climate fits their needs), never kept them inside a dome (so that I wouldn't have to worry about mold) but always used...

    Preventative for sarr rhizome rot?

    Hello, The title say it's all, I'm seeking info about any preventative measures I can take to protect my remaining sarrs from rhizome rot. Recently I've had a pretty bad outbreak which has claimed my favorite purpurea among others and I really don't want to lose anything else. So can anybody...

    Nepenthes cutting trouble

    Hello, I'm currently trying to root a couple cuttings I purchased this past Saturday, I thought they were doing okay until I looked at them today. One of them (a mystery cutting) has started to turn brown at the middle of the stem, the stem is still firm but I can only imagine that it is some...

    Dendrobium repotting and root rot?

    I was repotting Den. nobile gold star and a few others today because they were in a really bad media and I saw some black roots. Should I cut these off to stop it from spreading or will it make it open to infection? http://i.imgur.com/VAzez0p.jpg

    Anyone know whats wrong with my N. burkei?

    A few months ago when I moved house I noticed my N. burkei had browning on the base of its leaves, well now a month after I discovered it, the browning has gotten quite severe and completely covers the base of the leaves. None of the other plants in my collection are exhibiting the same...

    Pinguicula esseriana disease /damage

    Hey TF. I think this Pinguicula esseriana is suffering from crown rot or BHD. I am leaning towards crown rot, because some of the leaves are showing necrosis at the leaf tips rather than it coming from the base. The plant is growing in an uncovered tank under 4 4' shoplights. Watered by tray...

    Stapeliae winter photoperiod

    I'm interested in getting some stapeliae, but I'm not familiar of their care (or even succulent care for that matter!). It mostly seems that during the winter, they are "dormant", although I don't know if it is a true dormancy or if they just slow down their growth. Because of this, I should...

    They told me not to grow it this way...

    Well, apropos of a recent thread, I decided to start a new one here that is on-topic, of that off-topic discussion :jester: When I was first starting out, in all the instructions I found, the proverbial 'they' described a certain potting medium, certain humidity, a grow setup, which plants...

    Sundew Help ~ Confused and a bit Overwhelmed

    EDIT: UPDATE: 12.16.15 --- Alright it's been a minute since I've posted for help, I re-potted the thing in the moss, I rinsed the moss, and I've been watering it in a tray with distilled water. It's been in bright light in a window, it's not in a tank or anything but it's still pretty high...

    Digging up orchid bulbs?

    My grass pink and egret orchids just died back to bulb form. Because they will be inside for the winter, should I dig them up and put them in my refridgerator to keep them cool and rot free, or should I just leave them in the bog garden along with the sarracenia and other things? It seems to get...

    Advice for a struggling bicalcarata

    A few months ago,when my bicalc outgrew the small terrarium, I set it up in one that was larger, but had less ventilation. I made the mistake of setting the pot in the water, and proceeded to neglect my poor nep for several months:nono:. (I also made the mistake of setting the terrarium up in a...

    Darlingtonia Conservation

    Hello, While this is not a major emergency call to arms type of post, I hope that it will still generate a response out of this community. I am looking to start a non-profit centered around the conservation of Darlingtonia. While this genus is not particularly at a high risk of dissappearing...

    Kalanchoe 'Pink Butterflies' giveaways and trade

    The giveaway is for one plant each for two people, usual rules. I'll try to do this by noon on Thursday, as I would really like to ship on Friday. Shipping $7 Paypal. That leaves me 3, none of which I want to keep, plus an unrooted one with odd coloration, which is also fair game, but it...
