    Carnivorous Plants in the Wild - My In Situ Explorations

    I've decided to consolidate all my photos of wild carnivorous plants and other associated flora into 1 thread. So far, I've visited bogs from Maine to Florida, I'm hoping to add a West Coast trip this summer. This 1st bog, an Atlantic White Cedar Bog is almost within Boston city limits. It...

    In Situ Expeditions

    I am in the process of creating itineraries for different trips to see carnivorous plants in the wild here in the US. I'm designing the trips based on the wants of others as I likely will be leading groups of people to see these plants. They won't be able to collect seed, cuttings, or any plant...

    Trade of non-CP plants for any CP plant?

    Hi everyone, I'm very new here and would like to see if I can trade with some members for CP plants or seeds: serracenia, drosera, nepenthes, etc...anything is fine as I only have 1 Serracenia and 1 Nepanthes. I hope to trade within the next 2-3 weeks. We can send something of equal postage...

    Tuberous Drosera

    After speaking with several members here among other growers, I have realized that there are more misconceptions about successfully growing these plants than I had thought. I wrote the care sheet below last year for the NECPS members to use as a guide for their cultivation and I hope that it can...

    Any fisherman here?

    I have been flyfishing for years but there is a new form of it that has emerged. It's called tenkara and I have been in love with it! A very simple way to fish. So my newest hobby is tenkara and tying my own flies. Takes the stress away and gets me outdoors. Here's a wild rainbow trout I caught...

    Spotted some Sarracenia in the wild

    Howdy. I went on a nature hike today just outside of Tampa, Florida and spotted some Sarracenia minor. Here are some photos from the hike: The habitat: Wading in mud to get around the preserve: Sarracenias!

    Drosera murfetii

    Last Saturday I was gifted a D. murfetii, a new species from Tasmania. Being so new to cultivation there is not much I can find about caring for it, although they do grow alongside D. arcturi in the wild so I will follow grow guides for them. Wish me luck. Has anyone here had any experience with...

    Fruit fly culture Q's

    I picked up two vials of FF yesterday to start up cultures for seedlings, spider slings, etc. Despite both of them being labeled as "flightless", I got a vial of both flightless and wingless, so...bonus? Anyway, the recipe I used was the simplest one I could find. Instant potatoes, powdered...

    temperature for N. peltata

    When I visited a local nursery, they had some really nice N. peltata seedlings for a low price. To my knowledge, N. peltata grows at an elevation of 800-1600M in the wild, and I have heard before that it grows well as an intermediate. My growing area gets daily highs of 85-90f and nights between...

    Wild CPs in Michigan

    Took me a few tries to track down local bogs. Found many swamps the first few times. Eventually, I found a bog bordering a small lake (more like a pond, in my opinion) and went for a short walk: It was really too easy - the boardwalk goes straight up to the bog, and Sarracenias were visible...

    The Miracle of Life

    The gift of life is the best gift of them all.. ('coz love is the greatest? @_@) Picked up this egg during my vacation in one of the tropical paradises in South-east Asia. Only God knows what's inside. I found it inside a hollow tree stump. 3 weeks later... Boom! Thank goodness it's not a...

    Finally purchased a Reducta, hectioides and a Berteroniana...

    :-D I hated to take a chance on buying these alleged Carnivores from Europe but took the gamble and won. They got here in 6 days... bought seeds months and months ago of Regia from an eBay Seller in Great Britian and it took 3 months to arrive and the Seller mailed them immediately upon closing...

    I can buy an atomic bomb faster than a Brocchinia Reducta !

    Frustration abounds ! I've been searching the world over for a Reducta since I'm into CP's bigtime and can't seem to locate one for sale. Not in the USA anyway. Ironic that the Catopsis grows wild in Florida and I have to send to Europe to buy one. Fast chance of getting it through Customs...

    Hello from Connecticut.

    Not much to say really. Been into CPs for the past seven years, expanding current collection from a single Lake Poso N. Maxima to include an N. xMiranda, Sanguinae, and Ventricosa(first CP, had to give it up when I moved), as well as a few sundews and an S. Purpurea if I can find a wild one...
