I have at least 80 seed pods on 2 spikes; I have harvested 1 spike and the...

    NIght Blooming Cereus

    After 3 year of waiting (or actually maybe 4) I finally got blooms on one of my Epiphyllum crenatum!! My wife missed them cuz she did not want to go outside - her loss! They were gorgeous and smelled FANTASTIC! I was hoping to get 2 days of bloom or more, but I think the 94F heat did them in...

    a pest problem

    Instead of describing my pest problem I will post pics. I have isolated the 2 trays of infected plants and I have treated with commercial Orthene and it seems to be doing the trick, but what are these? I have never had to deal with these before. Should I do anything else (other than the...

    I have found a renewed desire for thriving flowering utrics. I have had several species for several years, but have not seen them following flower, or even seem to thrive. I have looked online and in other forums, but have found conflicting info and many, many "best practices". I am looking for...

    2 ID's in question

    The first was a plug of moss I planted for my little girl, but I do not remember where it came from. I thought it was only moss - imagine my surprise when these leaves popped out. A genlisea or a utric? type? The second came to me as nelumbifolia, but the more I read the more I question this...

    Gluttony: a deadly sin

    We had our spring swarming of love bugs this past month. They apparently REALLY like light color sarrs.....and the sarrs liked them a bit too much, as well. I meant to get some pics of the tiny critters filled to overflowing in the flavas and alatas and the leucos - they were struggling to get...

    Spring Pics

    Before they get too sunburned....I moved my neps back outside and have removed some of their shade cloth for spring sun. Last year they were fully protected with cloth, this year I plan to only cover overhead and experiment with which need and can take more sun - hot sticky Louisiana sun...

    declining purp

    I have had 3 purps in a tub bog for the past 3 years (maybe 4). The antho cyanin free is declining significantly, the rosea seems to be declining slightly, and the ssp. venosa seems to be thriving! Thoughts? I was thinking of repotting the 2 declining purps - I might just re fill the entire...

    temperature concern

    It has been in the 80's here for more than a few weeks(with nights in the 70s), so I moved all my neps out from their winter resting on a cramped set of grow racks in the garage to their outdoor shaded area. Now I see that it will dip into the low 40's and maybe even to 38 by Sunday night...

    Ceph from seed?

    I am ready to sow some ceph seeds that I have had in the fridge for 3 months now. I have read what I could find about sowing ceph seed, but it hasn't been much. My questions are: Have you been successful with this? If so, what did you do? If not, what did you do? Thanks for your help!
