    Back at it!

    Hey all, Some of you guys might remember me from a little while ago. I took a break and travelled around for a while. I lost my entire collection recently when I left it for a few days during a move and my humidifier malfunctioned during a heat wave. I had some really cool plants and I feel...

    Hey guys and gals, I REALLY need a Socal area plant sitter for a few nepenthes and sarracenia for me for a few months (probably about 6) starting ASAP.

    LF U. menziesii And other utrics

    Hey all, I was wondering if anyone has or knows where I might be able to find this species? I understand it's very difficult, but I've done a good amount of research on it's cultivation requirements. I have a good amount of things for a trade if thats an option, although I don't know of...

    Nepenthes art and the most stylish terrarium ever!

    I though a lot of you guys/gals would find this interesting. This Japanese Azuma Makoto artist mainly creates sculptures and displays with plants (including nepenthes), but his bonsai terrarium is amazing! Just the design of the terrarium itself is really cool with no exposed parts, save the...

    Hey y'all, I'm looking for N. Viking (Mirabilis var. globosa) species and hybrids. I'd be most interested in Viking x amp (red) but I'd definitely consider anything else.

    I feel like Nepenthes sanguinea is a beautiful and often underrated species. There's tons of variability when it comes to color in this species. I figured it's cool enough to deserve it's own thread. Sanguinea remains one of my favorites regardless of the fact that it was one of my first...

    Hey all (for the second time in 24 hours..), The first CP I've ever bought was a VFT from a supermarket, but besides one thats growing on the other side of the country at my Mom's pad, I don't have a single fly trap. I'd love to try my hand at growing one and pay homage to the plant that got me...

    Nepenthes companion plants??

    Hey all, I just posted this on proboards, but I figured I'd give it a shot here too: I've had this idea for a while and I'm now really itching to follow through with it: Do any of you know where I could find some companion plants that would be found growing in a HL nepenthes environment? I found...

    Hey all. I love tentaculata! And I recently just lost my new tentaculata (Murad clone) and would really love to replace it without having to place another overseas order. I'd be stoked to find that variety and especially thrilled to find a plant that is less common (perhaps even a seed grown...

    My first Bog garden and Maine photos

    So I went to northern Maine to visit one of my good friends last week and discovered an awesome bog while I was there. After telling a few of his friends about it one of them invited me to a bog on his parents property the next day and let me take a few plants to start my own bog garden. I got...

    Flowering (Male) Spathulata x spectabilis looking for a lady friend ;)

    It's just opening up so I suspect I have a bit of time, although I've never dealt with a flower before so I'm not sure exactly how this game is played. Holla if you'd like to make a hybrid. It's a really awesome looking plant with a gorgeous striped peristome. Super colorful!

    Raff and hopeful monsters

    I have a purple rafflesiana and a N. "hopeful monsters" merilliana hybrid with an unknown father plant that I might be willing to trade. I'm trying to confine my LLers to a smaller terrarium and free up the tent I'm using for them for some HL plants since I'm running out of room pretty rapidly...
