    Potting leaf cuttings and humidity.

    I have a few leaves that have sprouted. I have taken them from the bag and put them in a pot with an adult plant. I have put this in a chamber with 90% humidity. Will this harm my adult plant? My home humidity is 35%. Thanks!

    Multiple pings in one pot and dormancy?

    I am thinking about putting several pings of different types in one pot. How would you deal with one plant going into dormancy? Or is this just a bad idea?

    I was thinking that this may be red sphagnum moss and was happy. I have tossed hundreds of capenthes seeds into this over the months. These are defiantly not capenthes! But it is certainly a carpet or Drosera!

    Sarracenia dormancy

    I have been trying to give my Sarracenia a bit of bug every month. When should I stop feeding it? I live in southern California so I don't expect any freezing temperatures, but I know my plants were dormant when I got them last January.

It evaporates around 1 gallon a day. I have several pots, water hyacinth and lots of waterborne Utricularias. In the last...

    Mister tubes and head mounting.

    I am building my rain system for my highland tank. I have high pressure hose and misting heads. I am thinking of using silicone to glue it where it needs to be and duct tape to hold it there while it dries. Anyone have better suggestions? Thanks, Sage

    Terrarium and a Cephalous

    Here is my small terrarium. I have 5 pots going through a foam board to make an internal water tray setup. The top layer of moss / peat is wet to damp depending on how far from the bottom it is. I would like to add a Cephalous to this tank. If I use 2 parts sand to 1 part peat, how many...

    I just got some Schultz 2-777 cactus fertilizer. The information that I have found says 3 drops in 1 quart and a lite misting of leaves only (not soil) once every 4 weeks. My Pings do not fully cover my pots. Thinking of cutting a hole in a piece of paper to use as a stencil to keep from...

    U. Inflata

    All the pictures of U Inflata show it in clear water, no other plants around. My Inflata has a barrier to keep my water hyacinth away from it. I am seeing algae on it and not on my other water loving U plants. Has anyone grown U Inflata before or are aware of the conditions it likes?
