    Deflategate/Inflate truncate

    With the NFL's 49th Super Bowl exactly one week from today, the buzz about footballs in the two weeks leading up to this year's game is quite unexpected. I don't think anyone could have predicted the uproar that would follow with regards to this humble football. Through this last week...

    Is flushing the pot with water necessary?

    I have several plants in a Highland Terrarium. I will flush the pots with water every 2 weeks. Is that enough? Also, after this i have tons of water left. Can i reuse this water? Is this flushing of the pot necessarily? I mean I do this because I don't can't really tell if the soil in the pot...

    Greetings from Minnesota

    Hello to everyone here! So I'm from Minnesota and I starting collecting CPs a two years ago, I'm still new to all of this. Just to prove to you how new I am, I'll tell you a story. A year ago around winter dormancy I thought that Carnivorous plants didn't need water during their winter dormancy...

    New Saltwater Tank HELP!

    Hey guys! I noticed that nobody's posted here for a while but I'll give this a shot anyway. So it's been a while since I've been on Terraforums; a move down south to Georgia and a job change and all sort of whisked me away for a while from some of the pleasantries of life...But good news...

    Where are this new growth from?

    Drosera venusta, received it from a giveaway. I recently noticed two new growth point and I"m not sure if it's from the D. venusta, seeds from the D. venusta since it flowered, or from other flowered plants. Thanks!! Regardless, I'm super happy because I thought this plant was going to die.

    Well, I finally began my winter set up for my plants

    Well, I am finally done with second rounds of midterms in school and have some brain capacity to deal with winter care for my plants. It is indeed too cold for my nepenthes for winter as the outdoor temperature in my area hovers around 40's. Honestly, I can't find egg crates anywhere. except...

    Should I let my sibuyanensis continue to experience 95-100 degree days?

    Uhmmm, so for several hours the sibuyanensis sits in temperature between 95-100. It seems to be doing okay but I want to double check. I FINALLY bought a thermometer and hydrometer to put in the box. The humidity ranges between 60-90% all the time. I thought highlanders can only do up to 95...

    Only wanted some pots but ended buying something else

    Super happy about those square pots but couldn't resist. I mean I was gonna get charged 10 bucks for shipping I might as well buy some plants. Been buying a lot of bare root plants and I realized today that there's something really awesome about having them pre-potted. I can just plop them...

    B. guehoi vs B. filifolia

    1. Both are large and super gluey. At my miniature balcony, I turn around to water other plants only to be smeared with their digestive juices all over the arms. The watering can also gets coated with slime if it is used to water any other CPs near these fellows. :jester: 2. Both look VERY...

    WOW! Utricularia bisquamata flowers are SUPER TINY!

    I recently got my first Utricularia, a bisquamata. It has now produced one flower for me! Man I had NO IDEA just how small the flowers are! Top to bottom it's about 5 mm! You almost need a microscope to really see the thing! Trying to get a good photo of it. NOT EASY so far.

    I haven't posted here lately. My plants haven't done anything remarkable recently, but I thought this was pretty cool. The Nepenthes Spathulata x Ventricosa seeds I received from this auction germinated (I think)!: This is my first germination ever, so I'm super excited. I have a few...

    Interest in determining soil nitrogen concentrations?

    I've always been interested in taking the superstition and mystery out of the cultivation of CPs. In the past I've had the opportunity to do so from a cultivation angle, now I have more-quantitative tools available. I'll often see discussions of old media coming up. Many repot religiously to...

    Nepenthes seed giveaway.

    Available is one packet of about 70 seeds of N. Helen X (spectabilis X mira). N. Helen is a single TC'd Borneo Exotics clone from spathulata X spectabilis, and the pollen parent is a seed-grown BE hybrid I acquired 2 years ago. I believe in both cases, the spectabilis used was BEs "giant" clone...

    My modest Terrarium

    Hi all Built myself a medium sized terrarium about a month ago. So far it seems like the Dorsera I've got in there are loving it. With the exception of my little D. Adelae. For some reason it has turned super red almost black on the tips of it's new growth and produces no dew :-( The humidity...
