    Lets talk about selling on TerraForums (classifieds system)

    So it's been a while now since I decided to try allow selling here on the forums, forever it was a trade only atmosphere... I'm surprised that not much gets listed when it seemed to me to come up all the time that it was the one thing that needed to change around here. So I'm curious, are you...

    Good automatic mister.

    Good afternoon, reptile people of terraforums. My dad rigged up a cooling system for my crested gecko using a squirrel cage fan. It was just put there today and it's not fixed to anything yet, but it's working out pretty well. Here's the thing, though. It works on evaporative cooling and the...

    Synthesizing peat?

    Good morning, people of terraforums. I have a theory that I will most likely test soon, but I would like to discuss it here first. This March, when I repotted my deathbox vft's, I found that the long fiber sphagnum that they were originally planted in had decayed to the point of looking like...

    Heliamphora outdoors?

    Good evening, terraforums. I wouldn't mind getting into heliamphora and I wanted to know if any species could be kept outside part of the year in my conditions. During the hottest part of the year it gets about 90-95 degrees Fahrenheit and drops to about 80-75 at night. Are there any...

    ScatterPants Mexican Pinguicula

    So I thought I'd start a thread of my recently started and still growing Pinguicula collection. It's modest for now but I could see it getting out of hand since I like them so much. There are pictures I took previously of these butterworts over on my introduction to Terraforums thread if you'd...

    ScatterPants of Portland, OR. Greetings through pictures

    Hello everyone. I have been in the chat and lurking around a bit so thought I'd finally put together an intro thread. I'm just starting to get into carnivores aside from some success with Nepenthes before and a failure with Darlingtonia outdoors over winter some years back. I have a 4ft T5...

    Vft "dente" natural division rate?

    Good afternoon, terraforums. I have a "dente" vft and when I repotted it this spring I found out that I had more than ten! I couldn't count them all, but all except one were seedling sized. In your experience, how often does dente divide? Thanks in advance.

    Cold frame grow tent?

    Hey, terraforums. I have some vft's and I want to build a cold frame for them. Would it be possible to use a grow tent as one or would it not insulate them properly. I managed a windowsill dormancy last winter, but I plan to expand my collection this season and I have no more room on my...

    Hibernaculum question

    I was thinking about d. Capensis' ability to form a hibernaculum when it gets cold and I was wondering. Are there any sundews that form hibernaculum in times of draught? Besides tuberous dews. By the way, I've been on terraforums for three months and this is my 300th post. WHOOOHOOOOO :boogie:

    Aphids on my vft.

    Afternoon, terraforums. It appears that my vft's have aphids. How the heck do I kill these things? I've heard about mixes involving canola oil. Are there any insecticides or mitacides that are safe for CP's that would work? Thanks.

    Mounting a bromeliad?

    Hey, terraforums. I want to mount a small bromeliad to some cork bark and add it to my gecko terrarium. Are they safe for crested geckos? Can bromeliads handle distilled water? I know that tillandsia can't take distilled water. Would a mounted bromeliad be ok being sprayed with distilled water...

    Young nepenthes food.

    Afternoon, terraforums. I have a very young n. ventricosa that I got from Lowe'. None of the pitchers are open yet, but when one does open I want to try feeding it some insects to speed up his growth. Any suggestions? Remember, these are really small, juvenile pitchers. Thanks.

    Baby ventricosa humidity?

    Good morning, terraforums. Yesterday I bought a baby N. Ventricosa from Lowe's and made a little terrarium for it to help maintain humidity. But I read online that ventricosa will tolerate low humidity, but mines a baby and it looks like it just started producing full pitchers. I even saw a...
