    I was just wondering what you guys think about collecting snow over the winter for watering plants? Any insight or opinions are greatly appreciated.

    FREE Veggie and Flower Seeds (non cp)

    I have some seeds that I won't get around to planting this spring/summer. They are from last year, so not all of them will sprout. If you have extra space in your garden, please give the seeds a chance! Shipping is on me. Just send a PM! Veggies: *Garlic Chives (Allium tuberosum) *Collards -...

    Flowers in the Snow........ Almost.

    A pic of my naked jasmine, Jasminum nudiflorum. Too bad this winter has been so mild until now, it's already done blooming for the year. And the flowers look so nice against the snow......

    Snow-covered VFT

    Some mixed-seed VFT babies spending winter outside due to space issues in the garage. They seem to be doing well in the cold temps with overnight temps in the 20’s at times. Temps always warm up above freezing during the day though. The second pic is of the tray after the snow melted off the...

    Been to the Zoo Recently?

    Hello again! I mentioned in my "Reptiles of UNC" thread in that subforum that the herpetology class was planning a special trip to the Denver Zoo. However as I took a lot of pics I decided that making a separate thread here (it's not just reptiles) was a better idea. There will be several posts...

    Winter Boredom.

    I know there's not snow on the ground, however I'm starting to feel the dormancy boredom already taking its toll on me. How on earth do people manage not to be bored when their plants are in their dormancy state?!

    Free grape hyacinth bulbs

    I have a bunch of super healthy and productive clumps of grape hyacinths. They are very easy to grow, nice grasslike foliage with deep blue flowers, great for edging, pots, or inter planting with tulips, hyacinths etc, overwinter in the snow easily and are one of the first bulbs to flower when...

    Trade of non-CP plants for any CP plant?

    Hi everyone, I'm very new here and would like to see if I can trade with some members for CP plants or seeds: serracenia, drosera, nepenthes, etc...anything is fine as I only have 1 Serracenia and 1 Nepanthes. I hope to trade within the next 2-3 weeks. We can send something of equal postage...

    Winter is Coming......

    And like most plant folks who live where the snow flies, one of the major limits on what I keep is lighted space. My house doesn't have much window space, and some of what's there is reserved for cats. I have a few set ups with artificial lighting, but still run out of space every winter...

    Corn Snakes!

    Snakes! I believe I have yet to post about my own pets here, so I decided it was time. I own 3 corn snakes currently, ages being at 4, 6, and 8 with the pics, respectively. The first is my male, Starfire, a typical amelanistic (or albino) het for anerythrism. He was a rescue, a friend's cat...

    Help me think of winter solutions...

    I know there are a hundred threads about all the different setups and terrariums, a lot of which have a lot of great ideas and potential. Yet not every set-up is going to work under every condition. Here's the issue I'm going to run into this winter, whether I like it or not, and it may become...

    Yo Yo Yo Portlander Oy Oy Oy

    Oy, My name's Carson, I'm 19, and I've been growing CPs for about 14 years. It got really intense when I found a steady stream of them coming from a local nursery. Naturally I went nuts and haven't been cured since. I posted on this forum and others as a less mature middle- and high-schooler. I...

    Pushing the limits.

    Hey Guys! I don't post very often, but have enjoyed reading what everyone has learned about cps through the forums. As Dragoness has just demonstrated...sarracenia can be pretty tough. Many other forum members here have also shown off their bogs in areas normally too cold for most cps (which I'd...

    Mice Damaged plants

    So I discovered that shrews were taking up residence in my bog that has been under cover and under snow all winter. I had set traps last night and caught a fat shrew this morning. I was also able to check out the damage more. The things have dug under several crowns and ate all the roots from...

    Hi from cold New Enland

    Hi, I have been growing nepenthes and a few other cps for several years now. I have learned a few things over the years that work for me but realize that there is so much more to learn. I had always grown nepenthes in wood and plastic homemade cases. Last year I finally got a small hobby size...

    Hello from Chicago
