    P. chilensis

    Here is a photo of my P. chilensis. You can see some seedlings, that are likely from a seed pod which I forgot to harvest. One of the amazing traits of this plant is that it is completely autogamous! The flowers of P. chilensis are very short, the stalk can be sessile like mine, or a few cm...

    Trip to Goat Marsh near Mt. St. Helens (Pics)

    Yesterday four of us piled in a car and headed out of Portland up to Mount St. Helens to go see wild carnivores. We spotted Drosera rotundifolia and also Utricularia that we haven't figured out yet which species it is. The Drosera was growing on Sphagnum moss, we think Sphagnum squarrosum...

    Not for the squeamish

    This/ these are something MrsG discovered in the wild bird water tray this morning. The water was changed yesterday so they've been carried in. :o and we've a pretty good idea what they were carried in in :0o: If you are squeamish just risk the one eye and see if you can identify.

    Is it neccessary to stake sarracenia?

    Hey everyone, I have (3) Sarracenia. One is a NoID and two are recent purchases this year of " S. Leuchophylla 'Hurricane Creek' ". The Hurricane Creek already seems like it's going to be much bigger than my death cube NoID Sarr. The NoID did really well last year and put on a lot of growth...

    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...

    Wild Patch of Iris Japonica Discovered

    My whole area tends to be a sort of honey hole where exotic plants grow wildly all over the place. It used to be a massive grass farm eons ago. Several years ago I became aware of a large patch of Giant Japanese Iris (japonica) that was growing in a ditch around the corner from me. I only notice...

    Wild lutea x caerulea hybrids?

    I believe that I've read of this hybrid in captivity, but can it happen with wild plants?

    Where do Tillandsia come from?

    I often see bunches of Tillandsia for sale in stores and online. They are often mixed varieties and it got me thinking . . . where do all these tillandsia plants come from? Are these plants plucked from the wild, or there "air plant" farms that grow a variety of species?

    Splinter hill bog preserve

    I heard this is a really nice place to see wild carnivorous plants esp pitcher plants. I'm wondering if now is gonna be a good time to pay a visit. Is there anyone who visited there recently or have been to this place in mid March before? Thanks!

    Hello from Belgium : )

    My name is Morgane, I'm 23 and I started growing carnivorous (and other) plants since last August. I already liked plants before, but the fact that I lived in a north oriented student room with a tiny window kept me from growing anything else than a bonsai. Now I live in a south-west oriented...

    Claims that Cannabis is Para-Carnivorous

    This thread is in no way intended to be an endorsement of illegal marijuana use. Indeed, one could infer from this discussion that consumption of trichome resin is harmful. One internet writer showed photos of cannabis trichomes, claiming: "There is no other plant like this in nature". I...

    Pitcher/Flower season has begun!

    Hi all, Just reporting in from Georgia, where it appears that once again the plants in the teaching collection are breaking dormancy. Dare I say they might be the earliest pitchers and flowers yet in the northern hemisphere? Invariably, 2-3 weeks after the solstice all taxa in the collection...

    Hey peeps

    Hi all I'm not really new but it's been so long I may as well be with maybe 10 years(ish) since my last post? Life got in the way of my passion for CP's; kids at school, moving countries, changing (many) jobs, all making it difficult to indulge. Recently my work has brought me to an interesting...

    Getting an ampullaria red soon! I looked around many sources for the care sheet and they were all kinda contradicting each other. Some said to give it shade since it grows on the forest floor in the wild, some said to give it full direct sunlight. So I decided to ask you guys for your...

    Hypothetical question regarding wild plants and trespassing

    Let's say there is a large tract of land near you that has a couple of common species of sundew on it. The land has been sold, and is going to be cleared at some point in the future. Would you trespass onto the site and steal the plants to "save" them, rather than contacting the owner and asking...
