    Some Utricularia bladder close-ups

    You could also cut a piece of window screen or other suitable mesh to fit the large diameter of the liquor bottle you have there and let them grow into the neck. The fact that you have a cap on the end would actually make it very convenient to do water changes without disrupting the plant itself.

    LF prickly pears and dragon fruit seeds or pads/cuttings

    It was what I would consider the "basic" variety. Pink outside with white flesh dotted with black seeds. Texture was like a combination of kiwi and pear complete with the sensation of sclereids. Very bland over all. The flavors were there if you wanted to find them but very subtle.

    LF prickly pears and dragon fruit seeds or pads/cuttings

    Haha yeah it is really simple. Not sure what kind of fruit you would get but it could be fun little project. I was so excited to try dragon fruit thinking it would be like a sweet milky vanilla creme flavor. Got all those seedlings going and then tried the fruit... a deranged lovechild of a...

    LF prickly pears and dragon fruit seeds or pads/cuttings

    Hey all, I'm coming into this pretty late but if you are looking for dragon fruit seeds and have access to the actual fruit, all of those little black seeds are viable. What I normally do is cut the white/pink/yellow part of the fruit into small cubes and press them through a small strainer...

    2014 NASC Teaser thread

    I'm unfortunately not in a position to offer CP's this year but I may have some orchids I could put up. I'm hoping beyond all hope for some N. ampullaria though... Nothing fancy just some green speckled or tricolor.

    swords: here's my tie dye!

    haha I would not want to be the guy who causes some loving husband to get divorced because he bought a tie died zoot suit. It is tempting however....

    Carnivorous Plant Bonsai?

    Closest thing I ever had to a bonsai CP was my old ventricosa. I lopped the top off and it went crazy. If you think really hard you might be able to pass it off as a Han-Kengai.

    Seed available for trade.

    I have a bag full of D. filiformis seed if you are interested. Age may be an issue but I have 5 or more flower spikes worth. I have location data to accompany it as well. Interested in the N. attenboroughii.

    New Home with No Good Light..... What To Do?

    Hello fellow Delawarian! Yeah depending on where you are, our windows aren't that great. Your old fish tanks would be a pretty good place to start if you have the space. This was my old set up when I first got started: Other than the temperate species you listed (Sarracenia and VFTs) I...

    Tray Method vs Overhead Watering

    I knew they did something similar for Drosophyllum due to the root sensitivity and stress but I could swear that potting up Darlingtonia was done this way specifically for temperature reasons... Hmm anyway I'll pause myself here and try not to detract from the issue of the thread. Though if I...

    Vertical Growing Cephalotus

    Looks like it might be a rockwool or an epiweb type material? Perhaps holding back a peat based media? Either way very cool!

    Tray Method vs Overhead Watering

    I'm sure someone has had great success growing them via the tray method. I have not even tried. After a bit of searching I can't find the article I want to reference but it discussed taking two unsalted terracotta pots, one of larger size and nesting the two together. If I remember correctly...
