    Found a sarracenia at the grocery store!

    I kept the tag and it says Cobra Lily, not Cobra Nest. Sorry about the super late respose, internet went down for a while.

    Found a sarracenia at the grocery store!

    I was in Seattle a week ago and was doing some early morning grocery shopping when I stumbled upon a gang of Sarracenia's in the florist department. I knew what plant it was before I even read the label, which was mismarked as a Cobra Lily. I was so tickled with finding a CP in a grocery store...

    Mimosa pudica

    They dont grow in the wild around where I am, Ive never even seen one until just recently. The pictures of the flowers are lovely, I cant wait to see my plant bloom. My hubby insists that if I play with them too much they will die, but besides touching it the first day I got it and the...

    Is it okay to repot sundew?

    Well, the leaves on your plant are a bit wider than mine and I have the little red dots everywhere, but otherwise its very similar. And yes, the young'uns are rounded. I found that strange, will they stretch out like their parents or become little sticky hands?

    Is it okay to repot sundew?

    I'll leave it be for now, thanks for the info. Eventually I want to share my little sprouts with some of my friends whom Ive gotten interested in my plants, but that can wait until fall.

    Mimosa pudica

    Really, Jim!? I just got the little guy. Now I have even more to look forward to! Do the flowers shy away from touch too or is that just limited to the leaves and stems?

    Is it okay to repot sundew?

    Although I just potted the sundew not more than a month ago, it already has a baby sundew coming up about 2 inches away from the mother plant. Ive read in a lot of books that fall/early winter is the best time to separate and repot, but would it be possible for me to just scoop the little guy...

    Mimosa pudica

    I just had a birthday and I recieved a Mimosa as a gift. I had never heard of them before. They remind me of minitaure version of palm trees but when you touch the leaves, they shut, almost shy away from you. Absolutely the neatest thing I've seen since my first flytrap. I also got an...

    Convincing a vft it is live food

    I just let go world's of the toughest cricket. First, I accidently took off one of his legs trying to catch him. Then, when I tried to feed him to my VFT he kicked it and made it close before he could get in there. Since I had him clamped in tweezers, I just locked the tweezers shut and left him...

    Sundew

    Sorry about the late late post. Ive been in a bit of a time warp. I bought my sundew from Lowes, the type with the long leaves, not the "sticky oven mitt" kind. I re-potted it today in the prescribed soil mixture, we'll see how they do. Thanks for the info. -Julia

    Cobra lily

    Sorry about the incredibly late response. So far the potting of my cobra lily had gone well. I cant find live spagnum for the life of me. Im wondering how I should feed it (and I will have to, there are not enough bugs around) I have flightless gnats and crickets of various sizes. Unfortunately...

    Sundew

    I just purchased a sundew today and I have no info on what kind of soil mixture to use. Im also not sure how large or small of a pot I should use and if it needs to be drained or undrained. I have also posted similar questions under the pitcher plant section titled "Cobra Lily" if you have any...

    Cobra lily

    I just bought a Cobra Lily earlier today and unfortunately I dont know what soil mix to use. I usually have hostage with me just about every library book there is on the subject, but, silly me, I just turned those in yesterday. I did not know I would be needing them again the next day. Also...
