    Post Pics of your Homemade Hybrids!

    I've always loved pings and have a decent little collection. I can't wait until Spring when I have multiple plants blooming at the same time so I can make some hybrids. Really want to cross my 2 laueana clones, cyclosecta x sumidero, colimensis x laueana, cyclosecta x colimensis, etc. I also...

    Growth Tips Dying?

    Do you fertilize? I recently caused a nepenthes disaster in my collection with too much if the (apparently) wrong fertilizer.

    Repotting cephalotus?

    I just received a young adult cephalotus planted in pure LFS in a small pot. Should I go ahead and repot it in a sand/peat/perlite mix in a larger pot, or should I wait? The soil it's in seems kind of old and compacted and the pot's tiny.

    Pinguicula colimensis

    I'm thinking maybe its remaining dormant bc it doesn't like the media it's in ( pure perlite). All my other pings are producing summer leaves, so I'm just kind of wondering. I know colimensis is a bit pickier than your average ping. I'm not trying to force it, just make it happy in my...

    Pinguicula colimensis

    Is anyone's colimensis still dormant? I got mine while it was dormant and made the mistake of planting it in a normal ping mix, where it sat motionless for about a month. Then I planted it in pure perlite and it still did nothing. It's got a couple of very small glandular leaves that are almost...

    Well my plants arrived and I'm in Utah, halfway across the country from my house! Luckily I have an awesome boyfriend who potted them up for me and from the pictures they sent me they look pretty healthy! Thank God!!

    Orchid 30-10-10 = Smaller pitchers?

    Yeah glad I realized what was going on before the damage was irreversible. I just figured 30-10-10 would all be the same regardless of brand. Won't be using that stuff again!!

    Orchid 30-10-10 = Smaller pitchers?

    I know normal Miracle-Gro is bad for CPs but I thought the orchid fertilizer would be ok for the Neps. I'm definitely not going to fertilize for a while and, when I do, it will be with Maxsea. The only reason I used the 30-10-10 is that I've seen it recommended in various places, obviously it is...

    Orchid 30-10-10 = Smaller pitchers?

    Hey everybody, I've been using a Miracle-Gro brand orchid fertilizer on my plants for a few months and the results seem a bit dubious. I diluted the fert to approx 1/4 strength and have been using it every 2 weeks as a foliar feed and a little bit through the soil. I'm wondering if anyone has...

    June Wistuba Shipment

    Good to know I'm not the only one! I thought maybe I'd been skipped over somehow. What all did you guys order? This was kind of a test shipment for me so I only ordered a few plants - N. aristolochioides, N. jaquelineae, N. muluensis, and N. tenuis.

    June Wistuba Shipment

    Hey all, I'm awaiting some plants that are supposed to be shipped in June from Germany. Is anyone else waiting on a plant order and, if so, have you heard anything about it? I'm going out if town on July 8th and am starting to wonder. I ordered them in April and never thought I would be looking...

    Pitcherless Plant

    Well, I think your media, while good for most temperate CPs is way too heavy for a highland nepenthes. Something more suitable would be a fluffy, well-draining mix that includes lfs, perlite, possibly orchid bark, maybe some coco peat. There are tons of great nep mixes out there. Also, are you...

    Heli's picture thread

    Hey Heli, I've been thinking of doing something similar to your setup. Is that a converted deep freeze? If so, did you just unbolt the top and replace it with glass? I've also seen some pretty cool beverage refrigerators that are compressor cooled with a glass door. How easy/expensive to...

    DonH's Nepenthes Pic Thread

    OK that makes me feel a little better. I got N. tenuis, N. muluensis, N. jacquelinae, and N. aristolochioides. I just want to make sure they can get settled in before I have to leave.

    DonH's Nepenthes Pic Thread

    Hey DonH I was just wondering, was your order scheduled for June delivery? Or was yours supposed to be May? I received an email saying the plants would be shipped in June, and I'm leaving town in the first week of July. I thought that would be ok but now I'm getting worried.
