    Pygmy sundews in moist media

    These were hardened from tissue culture and are growing on live sphagnum moss. I have seen D. puchella growing in swamps together with Cephalotus but the D. leioblastus is just an experiment. D. puchella D. puchella (orange and red vein) D. leioblastus

    Sarracenia Rosea for Tuberous sundews.

    For trade are mature size divisions of Sarracenia Rosea. This clone is very vigorous. In the two years I had this Sarracenia, one division turned into this big clump. I am looking mainly for rosetted tuberous sundews and cephalotus.

    Impurities in greenhouse watering system

    I keep my carnivorous plants in some spare space in a propagation greenhouse at the University I attend. The plants are all watered (by the greenhouse manager) through a fertigation system which delivers water soluble fertilizer through the irrigation system. My plants are on one of the "Do Not...

    Getting Botrytis in my new hobby greenhouse--need air circulation tips

    Hi everyone! I just built one of the infamous harbor freight 6'x8' greenhouses. It's been great to have so far and I'm slowly stocking it full of cacti, succulents, Pings, and Drosera. It is heated to 40F and goes anywhere from 50-70F during the day. I check it twice a day and noticed that...

    From a bugs point of view...

    I wanted to try and see what a future victim of my plants voracious appetites might see before he wanders into a trap. I set my little 20$ camera down in the planter and managed to get a few shots that weren't so blurry. I was particularly inspired by this rockin' Utricularia leaf in behind...

    Dividing D. aliciae

    Anyone have advice on dividing this thing? Since it flowered this summer, my alice sundew has divided 3 times, making 4 total sundews stuck together. I just don't know where to begin. I have only separated pings, sarrs, and VFTs. Here are a couple pictures:

    Issues with Drosera Capenses - Help Please!

    Hello all! I have a feeling that I am just doing one thing wrong that my sundew does not like, however I am not sure what it is. To give you some background, about 7 years ago I used to own multiple sundews, Drosera Capensis Albinos and Pygmys, as well as a couple of different Nepenthes and...

    Hey guys! I am ridiculously excited because I just pitched an idea for me to teach a class on CPs at the State Botanical Garden of Georgia.

    Unintentional, late-season overfeeding of S. leucophylla

    Hey, I recently scored a nice white-top at a plant sale. I was a little wary of buying a plant like this late-season, right before dormancy, but I went ahead and got it since I knew it came from a good source and I don't know that I'll find any of these locally outside this one bi-annual plant...

    Looking for trades to expand a teaching CP collection

    Hi everyone! I would love to begin doing some plant trades in order to benefit my workplace and obtain a more complete and interesting collection of CPs. Because my teaching greenhouses aren't specifically specialized in CPs, there are significant holes in our collection and many genera are...

    Moss Control

    I was just hoping to poll you guys on how best to control non-Sphagnum moss growth on sundews. It grows so abundantly in my greenhouses that it suffocates everything. My current strategy consists of ripping the top layer of media off and transplanting the sundews back in after I've tweezed the...
