    Oh! for the love of COLD!

    Hey All, Most of you don't know/remember me. It's been a while since I posted. It's an off and on thing. Anyway, I was observing my babies outside a little while ago and caught these pics. It's about 19*F with 11mph winds(feels like 8*F) and the snow we got last night is beautiful. Anyway...

    completely freaked out

    sorry if this gets long and rambly, I'm just so scared to death right now. I was on my way home from a frisbee tournament in new hampshire. Running all day in three inches of snow really works up an appetite. So I stopped at McDonald's. I was parked in a fairly dark section of the lot, and I...

    SNOW!

    Hey all! What a blizzard yesterday! Here are some photos! A carefully shoveled walkway on campus Mysterious mounds in the parking lot. The parking lot so carefully plowed to ensure traction for all types of vehicles. This is especially safe and provides great traction for 2 wheel drive...

    Winter Shipping

    Well the wind is blowing, it's 14F, snow is flying around, I see people falling on ice from my window... and I have cabin fever. So of course, when it's the worst time of the year, its the time of the year that I want to buy plants... I miss seeing green things. Do you still feel...

    Enjoy the warm weather!

    Much of the Eastern US has returned to normal and below normal levels over the past week or so. After over 1 month of very mild weather, the pattern has finally changed. We have progressed into a pattern where there is a ridge over the West and a trough over the East. This mean that air from...

    I Smell...

    So it was like 70 degrees here (in Eastern PA) yesterday and.. let me remind you all.. it's JANUARY.. WINTER! 70 degrees!?! I think I speak for everyone when I say.. "WTF!" Was it oddly overly warm anywhere else? I've heard that this year is going to be the warmest year yet worse than 2005 (as...

    Buffalo Weather at its finest

    We just had a major weather event. It snowed and rained like crazy last Thursday & Friday. Snow is normally no big deal for this area. We're used to getting tons of it. It's the circumstances this time that were unusual. What happened was that most of the fall leaves were still on the trees and...

    Can rainwater be harmful??

    I have read that serval posters like to collect rainwater and use it to water their VFT's and other CP's. I found this article that states: http://www.windows.ucar.edu/earth/Atmosphere/wildlife_forests.html Acid rain harms living things When an air pollutant, such as sulfuric acid combines with...

    Polycarbonate vs Polyethylene

    I have been researching the different glazings I can use to recover my greenhouse next year.  I don't want to recover it with film like I did this year.  4x8 sheets of polycarbonate are going from $41 to $60 a sheet!!  My growers supply book I just got in is selling 4mm 4x8 sheets of...

    Greetings everyone. Recently, I had ordered a 4-tiered minigreenhouse for my CPs. Here in Ohio, the temperatures has been dropping (we had our first snow this past thursday). I got this greenhouse and set it up in my basement with lighting on a timer and shallow trays of water on the shelves to...

I am still waiting with the materials after 2 hrs since I posted...just sitting at the computer to know if this is how I should...

    Need a new dormancy method this year.

    My Carnivorous plant collection is coming up on its 12th winter.. As a bachelor, I had no problems storing my plants for the winter, because I had my own refridgerator! I could stuff it with plants. (see this thread for the background on my CP dormancy)...

    I'm conducting a small experiment....

    I have a cat box that I filled with water and emptied a bag of the dried LFS in it. Then I placed my U. macrorhyza in it. From what I read, the aquatics need solid material to latch onto. So now I have an outdoor mini-swamp. I'm also hoping the dried LFS will come alive before the snow flies...
