    Thank you, guys! I am already hungry to go back next year. I totally lucked-out for weather and overall conditions.

    New to the group. My set up and conditions.

    I am looking at a Peltier-type chiller like the ones used in mini-refrigerators and for computer chips. They aren't too expensive and should be adaptable to use in your tote box. I haven't tried this yet but I have plans for my largest terrarium, which has 4 cu. feet of volume. Anyway, 'just an...

    Random post - Electricity generators

    I love Electroboom, ha! Yeah, free electricity generators are often touted by people who love to con others and then sit back and laugh at them. Naturally, solar systems and wind generators are real solutions.

    Making the most of office space

    A good idea. I had a friend tell me that he almost completely cleared his house of fruit flies by growing a D. binata "giant staghorn." As for a small light - I use screw-in type standard leds and they do well for me. And you can choose your level of brightness and color temperature.

    adnedarn's photo thread

    'Nice plants! I didn't realize that it was possible to post photos as thumbnails that could be clicked on that would allow a slideshow format. Certainly saves on download time for viewing the page.

    My house Nep (N. x ventrata)

    I really appreciate it! I don't grow any carnivores in the house at large at this point but it would certainly be fun.

    For Sale Carnivorous plant art

    If you're a carnivorous plant grower and haven't had a look at Francois' art you will want to check it out. I'm in love with the Drosophyllum print I got from him.

    New Avatar movie

    I'm expecting it to be good, though I acknowledge that it could be a dud. It seems like the days of terrible sequels for big box office successes are mostly gone - mostly.

    Part 2. The Siskiyou Mountains. Site 1 - Darlingtonia californica, the cobra 'lily' or California pitcher plant. Seedlings were all around this rather sparse site. They seem to be spreading :). Site 2.

    Part 1. These are some photos from my annual fall peregrinations, this time into southern Oregon and northern California. If you're here to see pics of carnivorous plants, that is what this forum is all about after all, you might want to skip down to part 2. Crater Lake National Park...

    Drosera admirabilis dying

    For me, any unexpected brown leaves are a concern but then there are lots of reasons why the plant could lose a few including just having a bit of a transplant reaction. Obviously, what's all-important is the health of the new leaves at the center of the plant. Congrats on your new plantlets! It...

    Drosera admirabilis dying

    If it was me, I would pull and replant the little plant but 'wouldn't give up on the parent plant. Options are - you could harvest the roots and float them in a glass of pure water on top of a mat of lfs under lights and look for sprouts. Or you could just hope they re-sprout into a new...
