Trying to propagate some indoor pet friendly plants, zz plants, boston ferns, succulents, etc.
Every source I see has a method of leaf/stem cutting and placing them in water to root.
Does anyone know if it's faster to propagate in water with rooting hormone and possibly even a mild amount of NPK?
Hey, is it possible to give VFT and drosera too much light? I acquired this nice LED light that's used for certain other type of plants that people smoke, it's red and blue-ish red and supposed to be 180W of power. Afraid of giving them too much light :-O
"Sphagnum in California is restricted to perennially saturated soils in bogs and fens — waterlogged sites that depend upon up-welling of perennially cold water. The distribution of each species seems to be relictual in that each of the California species is strongly discontinuous in...
Got a quart sized bag of sphagnum. whole bag bleached within one day in California, at about 90-95F direct sunlight
Putting the whole bog in partial shade now, but only a few spot of greens are left. Maybe they just need to be acclimated first.
Man I'd love to know what condition that is grown in. I love it! Not understanding how a VFT can get so red as it only gets red with high intensity lights, but with high intensity light, the sphagnum starts bleaching.
I'm in California, so it's bright, sunny, and hot. Now I started experimenting with a bit of live sphagnum outdoor with my little mini bog and it started bleaching. I think that's a sign of too much light or heat.
I'm going to try putting it in a shadier area or put some shade cloth over it...
I've planted Drosera and VFT in a drained pot that's 12" wide and about 8" tall outdoor in Northern California[SF Bay] receiving maybe 3/4 day of full sun.
It's 100% LFSM and it seems that every day the LFSM dries up to the point where the top of completely dry.
I have it sitting in...
Got a little mini bog going outside, already have some springtails on the sphagnum. Looks like it might be too hot in NorCal to have any live sphagnum growing :/ was excited to see some green but it looks like it's just sphagnum algae
Getting back into this hobby after almost a decade. Finished college with multiple degrees, actually having a career, and paid off my student loans. :-D Still can't affording housing in the bay area, but I can probably live in a Nepenthes pitcher in SF for $1500/mo now :jester:
well, i don't see why people need like 10mp camera, that's huge! like big poster size huge. and i have an iphone, and i'm amazed by the quality of the picture compared to at least 4 other phones with higher megapixel, i've even compared it with a blackberry, the picture that an iphone take is...
so i put my ventricosa and sanguinea outside my house, so i can clean my room. once i was done, there was a line of ants all the way from the first floor coming up and into the 9 pitchers i have. i can't really put the plant back inside my house now because there are ants swarming around and i...
great, i used foggers... twice. it worked for like 4 days, then i notice that i'm starting to get bites again, and i put a little tub of water under the incandesant light, and i do get 1 or 2 every now and then, but ive used foggers like 3 times now, i'm vacumming almost every other days, i'm...
