    Putting together new tropical sundew tank--NEED ADVICE!

    Hey there! First of all, it's been ages since I've last posted! So hello again, everyone! Hope you've all been well! Apologies for a decade of absence, haha. So here's the jist: I'm attempting to put together a new display tank (all potted) to fill with mostly sundews, but probably a few Cephs...

    Looking for: Drosera burmanii seeds - Have: Brand new Skylander

    Not a plant to trade, I know! But I have an extra Boomer or Wrecking Ball (random prize between the two and should be here soon) Skylander that I won from a contest that I am willing to trade for a healthy scoop of D. burmanii seeds. And if you have no idea what Skylanders is, then A) You don't...

    Peat Concerns

    I've got some new sundews on the way, and since I've only been growing Nepenthes for the last few years, I don't have any peat to repot with. The thing is, the last few times I've looked at peat in Home Depot or Lowe's, it was the Miracle Gro brand. And unless I'm mistaken, it had fertilizer...

    Beautiful Ceph Set-Up

    Awesome! I love slick, streamlined setups like that. Makes the terrarium something perfect for a living room or bedroom.

    Hermit crabs, mites and terrariums--oh my!

    Hey guys. This evening I was disgusted to find that my hermit crab terrarium was totally infested with mites. I went to pull off the cover and there were thousands of tiny, white, moving dots having a party on the mesh and the surrounding edges of the lid. So my girlfriend and I did a deep...

    It's good to be back! (And the California Academy of Sciences)

    I was actually just reading about the de-stressing thing yesterday, and I'm pretty sure that's what they're up to. We've given them plenty of forest bedding, at least a good six or seven inches worth, and I think they probably saw it and freaked out! Their tank at Petsmart had like an inch or...

    It's good to be back! (And the California Academy of Sciences)

    Hey PlantAKiss: Just thought you should know - I'm editing my novel manuscript today and I actually put in a part about Venus Flytraps. There's a character who's into weird stuff, and it just seemed to fit, so yeah, there ARE CPS in it (well, a mentioning of them).

    It's good to be back! (And the California Academy of Sciences)

    Thanks for the great welcome-back guys! And no, there aren't any CPs in this particular novel (it's a young adult supernatural adventure about a remote mountain town), but I do have some cool ideas regarding the incorporation of CPs into a future story. I'm just waiting for the right...

    It's good to be back! (And the California Academy of Sciences)

    Hey everyone! Jeez, it's been ages since I've posted here. With my relatively recent move to San Diego and the (crumby) job search and everything else, it's been hard to find the time to get back on Terraforums. But times are a' changin'! Just a quick update on where I'm at: I have a patio full...

    My Nepenthes bicalcarata article in California Garden Magazine

    Thanks Cindy! I was proud to get some literature out there on N. bicalcarata, since I rarely see anything detailing this particular tropical pitcher plant.

    My Nepenthes bicalcarata article in California Garden Magazine

    Just thought I'd mention that once you click on the link for my article, it'll take you to a Mediafire page. Click on "Download File" and then use Adobe to open the PDF file. And ignore the pop-ups. Or you can scream at them. Your choice.

    My Nepenthes bicalcarata article in California Garden Magazine

    Hey everyone! Long time no chat! My life has been pretty crazy lately and I haven't had much time to hang out on these forums, but I thought I'd drop by and let you all read my most recent article. It's entitled "Fangs" and was published in the September/October issue of California Garden. I...

    Happy Birthday LLeopardGGecko!

    Awww, thanks guys! I had a wonderful birthday weekend. My girlfriend booked us a hotel room right across from Disneyland in Anaheim and we spent three days relaxing and riding rides. Definitely a fun way to turn 23!

    LACPS Meeting - June 2008

    That's my birthday! And that means I won't be able to come, since my girlfriend has a nice weekend planned for us. I'll get to a meeting one of these days...

    N.ventriosa

    Hey Capslock: I have a Nepenthes that is in a similar situation. The mother plant is starting to produce smaller and smaller leaves, while the basal continues to thrive and get bigger. Would you recommend I cut off the mother plant and try to root that, leaving the basal to take advantage of the...
