    Beginner's Pictorial Guide to Drosera Leaf, Root, and Scape Cutting Chapter #1

    Most Drosera can be easily and quickly propagated by leaf cutting, root cuttings, and flower scape cuttings. (A flower scape is just another words for the developing unfurling flower stalk as it emerges from your plant.) This will give you a mature plant faster than raising one from seed...

    Sopchoppy FL and carnivorous plants?

    Hello all, I'm seriously considering moving over to the panhandle of Florida in the next couple of years, and there's a little town called Sopchoppy right in the Apalachicola National Forest. It has a population under 1000 and is only about a half hour from Tallahassee, but as mentioned, is...

    Nepenthes Death Cube Rescue!

    So I walked into lowes today, and as usual looked at the plants. They had the usual many almost dead VFTs, but in the back of the $10 row, of course not the $5 row, I saw this little Nep screaming to save him or he'd eat me in the next life. First photo is in the box, second is it re-potted into...

    Nepenthes Spathulata x Albomargina killing itself

    I need help urgently. My oldest nepenthes has flowered 6 times in a row nonstop, and as it flowers each leaf gets smaller. The vine is more than 4 feet long. The leaves used to be 6 inches long but now the one at the tip of the vine is a single inch long. I think the cause of this might be that...

    Cephalotus "Hummer's" divisions for other Ceph cultivars/genetic stock (or Heli's?)

    Cephalotus "Hummer's" divisions for other Ceph cultivars/genetic stock (or Heli's?) Hi guys, I have a few Cephalotus crown divisions up for trade, one of which has a flower stalk. I bought the mother plant maybe 5-6 years ago as a Hummer's Giant crown division from an eBay seller in Alaska...

    How I grow Drosphyllum

    I can only write about what works for me in my particular conditions in the Pacific Northwest, results may vary for someone else. They are outside in full direct sun 8-10 hours a day throughout the growing season, from about April/May to October/November depending on outside temps. Outside they...

    Variation within a Species... Posters!

    I will be giving a lecture at the upcoming ICPS conference on Sarracenia and part of my lecture is discussing the definition of a species and how much variation is allowed within a species before a plant needs to be split into a new species. Too often people get the idea that a species...

    The Great Ping Leaf Race of 1928

    I really gotta stop coming up with weird titles lol. Anyway I just performed a mass leaf pulling on all of my pings this Friday (06/27/14) and thought I would start a development thread incase anyone was interested. I am too lazy to retype all the pings so I am just copying the description...

    Paying it forward- D. Filiformis New Jersey seeds

    I recently got some seeds from charlie so I am paying it forward. Up for grabs is one packet (about 30-40 seeds) of Drosera Filiformis 'New Jersey'. The catch is that you have to offer something to the CP community too- seeds, plants, etc. The first person to guess my favorite highland Nepenthes...

    Free Packet of D. capensis seeds

    The fifteenth post of this thread will receive a packet of D. capensis seeds that I just recently harvested roughly a week ago. The packet contains "many". There is only one rule, do not post twice in a row. Cheers

    Yellow powdery death?

    My nepenthes have done rather well for several years, I don't see pitchers very often but I get a ton of growth, and I root cuttings with ease. That's until I noticed my leafs were starting to yellow, get powdery, and the growing points were starting to die off. I cut back all of them, held off...

    Fasciation fascination

    Wanted to share a couple oddball cristate mexi-pings. For those unfamiliar with fasciated growth, also known as crested/cristate/cristata growth, a good place to see this pattern is with succulents, where this growth is much more common. Scolling down through the following link will give a...

    Repotting all my Sarracenia (hopefully doing it right this time)

    Earlier this year when I was living in Mississippi I posted about my pitcher plants not thriving like they should have been, and eventually I figured out the cause... It was because the soil I used had waaaaaaay to much LFS in it (I think I used LFS, peat, and sand in a 1:1:1 ratio), and over...

    MORE white box photography of tobacco hornworms

    I posted more photos of tobacco hornworms on my blog today...the third post in a row about these critters...I definitely need to find something different to shoot! LOL! Today’s blog was about using a white box to get photos that have a natural background rather than pure white. Here are two...

    New P. Gigantea mini-wall, A chip off the old block

    Some of you may be familiar with this thread. It didn't work evenly, and I only have one large plant right now :headwall: So I decided to try something a little different. Not that the ping wasn't doing well on that other wall: Anyway, I cut the plant off and installed it in a holder I...

    Kitkor's greenhouse

    Yep! Another greenhouse thread. Mine is similar to (if not the same as?) Pineapple's greenhouse, a simple 6' × 8' aluminum frame polycarbonate panel assemble-at-own-risk-of-constant-frustration kit that came in two boxes from Menard's. I wouldn't have considered getting it right now, but it was...

    You know it was an unseasonably warm winter when:

    You take the floating row covers off the sarrs, pull back the mulch and last year's Judith Hindle pitchers spring right back up pretty and perky with no sign of die off or brown tops.

    Thrips/Scales or....

    Recently, I had four nepenthes down with pests. Poor stenophylla and hamata x platy had mites while truncata x (ventri x aristo) got downed with a huge mealybug attack (the whole rootball was literally covered with white fuzzy guys :0o:). Now, I've got N. truncata x spectabilis EP making me...

    Copyright Infringement?!?!?
