    The NASC Auction Discussion/Request Thread

    Feel free to discuss anything relating to the NASC Benefit Auction as conversing in the actual auction threads may confuse people counting up the total amount of money raised and the like. I myself got confused yesterday sometimes. And while I'm at it, I'll take the liberty of periodically...

    Death Cube Rescues and a Question

    My mom is awesome. :> she went to Lowes to get some garden plants, and she said she had a surprise for me. She came back with a very healthy Darlingtonia. I was very astonished because I never thought I'd have one in my collection for a long time. I asked her if there were any other types and...

    Dormancy 2009

    As the title says, this thread is dedicated to this year's dormancy, so feel free to post whatever dormancy pictures you would like to share. :) Anyway, it's the time of year again (although the time was probably a few months ago for you guys LOL). Seeing that my plants were definitely dormant...

    "Guess Who?" CP Style

    Because TF has been lacking a game for a while. *PLEASE READ THE WHOLE POST* Basically, it's Guess Who? except it's with carnivorous plants. Some rules are modified however, but this is how it goes: I start off (or the person who guess correctly) and pick a plant, and you guys begin to guess...

    Nepenthes Outside

    Y hallo thar, this coming spring, I'm hoping to get some Nepenthes to put outside. The Nepenthes that came in mind were N. rafflesiana, N. ampullaria, and N. bicalarata. But since I don't see a reasonably sized rafflesiana, I was thinking of replacing it with another Nepenthes. So, the question...

    Saturn's "New" Ring

    I found this highly interesting how a ring that can fit 1,000,000,000+ Earths was just now discovered by infrared. Article: http://news.aol.com/article/california-nasa-telescope-sees-giant/706628?icid=main|aim|dl1|link3|http://news.aol.com/article/california-nasa-telescope-sees-giant/706628

    Are these good for them?

    I decided to start feeding my Nepenthes and while I was at the store today, I got some Betta fish pellets which I've heard does wonders. So are these it?

    Is This What I Think It Is...?

    Is this my Cephalotus's first mature pitcher? Or even an almost mature pitcher? I will explode of happiness if it is...I've had this plant for over a year now, and it seems like it's finally time to make bigger pitchers. :) This pitcher seems different than the others that are forming. It's...

    Leaves Looking a Bit Funky.

    So, recently, some of my N. inermis x bongso's leaves are getting weird marks/coloring. The lastest leaf doesn't show any sign of discoloration, but it just recently opened and it could possibly happen afterwards. Thoughts? As far as I can see, there are no pests.

    Newly Discovered Genus

    OH, YES. You read that right! Recently today, a new genus of CP has been discovered...and it's quite odd: As you can see, it's the platypus of CPs. It looks like different Sarracenias patched together. You can see what looks like S. flava, purpurea, alata, leucophylla, and minor...

    Medanos de Coro/Sand Dunes of Coro Picture Thread

    These pictures are from my trip to Venezuela. Went to some neat place, but this was by far my favorite place. Los Medanos de Coro, or the Sand Dunes of Coro in English. I've never been to a desert like this before, so it was a breath taking experience. And these pictures just don't do its...

    S. x 'Dana's Delight' Is Phyllodia Crazy! :P

    Yep. My S. x 'Dana's Delight' is making phyllodia like crazy. Hehe. Anyone having similiar growth patterns with their Sarracenias? I know phyllodia are used for photosynthesis purposes, but does S. x 'Dana's Delight' really need THAT much sun compared to others? None of my other Sarracenias...

    Going away for a while.

    Well, it's summer break again, so I'm leaving tonight at 2 am (I'm not even going to sleep...I'm just going to play Brawl with my brothers. LOL). I'll still get on, but not every single day. But I have a few question... How do you think Nepenthes will take sitting in water for three weeks? Do...
