    Rainbows in the Midwest

    I need to get another Buru plant established so I can make seeds...the one died back but has a sprout coming off the old stem, but I need another. Problem is all the other things taking time, no time yet to go back and start new batches (especially for localities that haven't yet decided to...

    Cephs in CO

    Size or location of the pitchers is not in line with where the light is coming from currently. And they can be repotted like any other: carefully.

    Rainbows in the Midwest

    A blurry photo, but a good example of how, while we know many flowers have UV reflective "landing stripes," they do not really biofluoresce: B. guehoi "Bobby's Creek, Dampier Peninsula" by Hawken Carlton, on Flickr

    And for the finale: I have a pair of huge robcantleyi x maxima flower stalks that I'm working on loading up with pollen (crosses with Leviathan or jacquelineae x tenuis, anyone?), and naturally I had to see what the flowers do in UV. Turns out, the nectar glands turn into disco lights...

    Hcarlton's Helis

    There's nothing wrong with where I got it or the origin of the plant in any manner; it's from an area supposedly rampant with natural hybridization. Nature made a mess, not people. And if your plant is flowering but has pitchers that aren't mature: it's been hormonally messed up, it may never...

    Overgrown Orchid!

    Lighting is frequently not the trigger factor for tropical epiphytic orchids. Photoperiod, or temperature, or moisture levels more often.

    Is this sand safe?

    Unless it's described as pure quartz or silica sand: don't. I would be especially concerned about anything claiming "beach" sand as that likely has portions of shell or coral in it, which is highly alkaline and heavy in unwanted minerals for most carnivores.

    I don't generally put references about pictures below the pictures unless it's a continuation of a reference started above, they tag the photos below them. The comment wasn't about brevifolia; the plant that was in question, the issue's already been answered by the other plant in the pot...

    storing Capensis seeds

    Cold storage will retain better germination rates than room-temperature on average; some carnivore seeds seem to have little trouble with room-temperature, but if you want the most seeds to last the longest storing dry in a fridge is best.

    Flowering Ping

    Perlite, blasting abrasive, bit of peat; same as the rest, nothing special. Just watching water levels differently on each (but the macro has been wet for a while and doesn't seem to care).
