    Just a few new Arthropod pics

    Here's the female Ghost Mantis: Detail: She was naughty, she ate her mate! Despite eating like a maniac she was able to stuff a mantid her own size on top of a dozen flies and a giant cricket. She was in with the male for almost a week and one day she was sitting with her back to the male...

    some (unidentified) cacti for trade.

    Okey, here's what's going on: I have 4 cacti, which I cant get pics of, (its a long story) I cant really identify, and I want to use their pot for a bunch of CPs. Cacti 1 is, I believe an Echinocereus. Cacti 2 is a type of (very spikey) ping pong padle cactus. I know there is a better name, but...

    Velvet/Spider Mites and Gnats- What to Do?

    So, I've never had this problem before. I grow outside. 50/50 peat and perlite. I've had the same bag of Canadian peat for probably 3 years. It's been kept in a shed and sealed up. Anyway, this year is my first year with seeds. First immediate question- what to Sarracenia look like when they're...

    Cool-Weather Growth on the Nepenthes Alarm Clock

    About a year ago, I posted some pictures of my highland shelf/alarm clock. I was snapping a few pictures today and thought I'd make an update. Not a Nep, but one of my favorite plants from this shelf. It took me three or four years to get the hang of this genus, but it looks like it's finally...

    A newbie who likes to grow seeds...a brief story and a request

    About three months ago, an article I read about a recently discovered species of pitcher plant (Nepenthes attenboroughii) reawoke old memories of the days I spent as a kid in the early '90s, killing one venus fly trap after another (as many of us did, I'm sure). And I got curious... I picked up...

    red sphagnum

    Ive had this unidentified east coast species growing outside for several years (full afternoon sun) . To be honest, I wasn't real impressed with it. It grew very "stringy" and the color was overly dark at the top and a funky dirty green everywhere else. I gave up on it and thought it had...

    Thought I would take a few pictures of my ping Tray. BTW, my P. 'Titan' in the bottom right hand corner has been growing vertical leaves for the last month? Is it confused? <a href="http://s294.photobucket.com/albums/mm112/Baylorguy81/?action=view&current=DSC01212.jpg" target="_blank"><img...

    Unidentified Growing Object in my garden

    I found a scattering of a strange, red carnivorous plant that puts me in mind of the Rafflesia sp. Flies are attracted to it, but I didn't notice any rotten smell. I have not been able to find a picture of anything else like it. They range from 3cm - 5cm across, and are grow almost flat on the...

    Identification help

    Hi, I bought a few unidentified carnivorous objects (UCOs) over the winter, and now they have enough growth to make a reasonable attempt at identification. Here is the first one: To my untrained eye, it appears to be an S.rubra ssp. rubra. It has red flowers and is pushing out a lot of...
