    Hey all, I have a some D. Finlaysoniana that I sowed a few months ago. A few of those seedlings are just now starting to leave the tiny seedling stage. The largest is about an inch tall and across now. The thing that I'm wondering is what kind of watering these plants want as they mature. I...

    I had noticed my D. Intermedia had quite a few curled and twisted leaves and flowerstalks for some time now. One of the stalks ended up dying, the second stalk got... Weird.

    Drosera Hybridization, My First Attempt

    I attempted to hybridize Drosera capensis "Typical" and Drosera aliciae this morning. This is my first effort at creating a hybrid. I waited until flowers from both plants were wide open. Then I took some tiny cuticle scissors and cut off one of the anthers from the D. aliciae flower. The...

    Bugs Found in Sphagnum Moss

    Hi, I was looking at the spaghnum moss of my venus fly trap, and I noticed that there were these tiny bugs crawling around in it that were no bigger than the head of a pin.

    P. lusitanica

    Found these P. lusitanica sprouting this year in a pot of Calopogon and a pot of sarracenia generously given to me last year on my way back from California, cute little things. They were not there when I brought the pots home last year, so assuming they sprouted this spring from seed that were...

    Overbuilding a Betta Tank

    ...because why not? I "rescued" a crowntail betta yesterday, and put him into a temporary tupperware home...where for all intents and purposes, he'd probably be fine. But I don't like having bettas in anything less than 2 gallons...my conscience nags at me. So today I set out on a DIY...

    Utricularia bisquamata

    This is the species Utricularia bisquamata, it should have the distinction of the epithet "The Thug". Although looking like a little cutie and I mean tiny, it is only that if it's kept confined to its own pot by regular dead heading before any seed is produced. Just don't turn your back for too...

I've posted photos of this plant and its flower on...

    how do the little guys do it?

    I was wondering those of you that have seen nepenthes in situ, how are the seedlings germinating and reaching maturity in the wild do you think? The reason I ask is because it seems I have to be quite diligent with my tiny seedlings and about every two or three weeks carefully remove any of the...
