    Dormancy question

    This question applies to my vft and Sarracenia since they both go dormant around the same time. I live in Miami so we don't have a true winter. The coldest it gets is maybe 50-60's. I know I have a long way to worry about Dormancy since it's just March but better to ask early. In the past I have...

    So. 60+mph gusts all day and night yesterday. Almost tornado force. I live on a hill with no tree cover. I'm at work--came home to find my greenhouse up in the air almost vertical. Greenhouse door wrenched open and turned it into a giant polycarb tumbleweed. Lifted off in one piece--with the...

    Rarity of Genlisea

    I've been wondering for a long time why Genlisea is (or at least seems to be) so rare. The ICPS suggests growing them like terrestrial utrics, which doesn't seem particularly difficult to me. And a few sources mention that they can be weedy like terrestrial utrics. Yet I don't know any place in...

    All Things Petiolaris

    It seems to me that there is a lot of interest in sundews of the petiolaris complex but not a lot of information out there. I consider these plants to be some of the most beautiful and interesting of all Drosera, if not all plants. They continue to be rare in cultivation and expensive to buy...

I did my usual google search and the answers were that it's caused by bad circulation...well my plants are out doors so that's not the case. The soil mixture is...

    Pygmy sundews, there have been posts here lately, anybody have any left? Trade or?

    Hi, Recently I participated in a giveaway here and received some D. scorpiodes gemmae-also in the package there were some D. pulchella gemmae that did not survive the trip. Thought I would ask if anyone had any left, seems to be the season. Thanks if advance if so.
