I'd been watering with ~45 degree water when I looked outside and realize I have tons of snow. I melted some and it's 17-20 ppm TDS. I just got this Darlingtonia from Lowe's, so...

    Free Pygmy Drosera Gemmae

    To the first person who lives in the US and replies here and PM's me their address, I will send all the gemmae I currently have. I will probably label them into two bags: "scorpioides" and "other", but if I'm in a particularly good mood, I'll label and maybe split up the "other" bag into things...

    Saved myself $2!

    Living in Missouri, I got about 4 inches of snow today. I also happened to conveniently run out of distilled water today. As I was about to walk down the block to our local grocery, I realized there was plenty of what I needed outside! So I grabbed a large plastic container, scooped off the...

    I'm thinking of getting a mini bog setup with some temperate species since I have a S. purpurea currently residing in a terrarium already.
