    Flora's little list

    So I don't have a lot, but i'm super proud of my plants. I talk to them and tell them they are doing good. They seem to like it. Here it is: Outdoor: I have four S. purpureas, a couple i lost the tags for, so at this point i call them all purpureas. I have a S. Red throat, a couple Luecophylla...

    Trying to join the bandwagon on Pygmy drosera gemmae, trade or?

    I have seen a few posts about Pygmy sundew gemmae lately, was wondering if anyone out there currently has any for trade or whatever. Mostly I have Aldrovanda and some other aquatics. Though I also have a bit of a sprawling noid orchid that I was told had orange flowers. Or Stapelia or...

    Mackinac and Emmet County, Michigan

    Last year I took a trip to the northern portion of Michigan and the southern portion of Upper Peninsula. On the trip I encountered various carnivorous plants and orchids. Emmet County (Day 1): The first site was quite unique compared to similar sites I have been to. All of these plants...

    PH problem in ponds

    A couple of my smaller ponds (less than 100L) are going basic, normally their PH is between 6.4-6.8, but in the past 2weeks a few are 7.2-7.6 and 1 got to 8.2. To counter it I use spag, I throw a handful in and for a couple days the PH drops to 6.6-7.0, Most of them have CO2 generators and a...

    Aquatic Utricularia Discussion Thread

    If there is any interest, I thought it would be nice to start a thread for discussing aquatic Utricularia, where we can share our setups, pictures of our plants, etc. I will freely admit that this idea came from RL7836's Orchidioides thread, but there shouldn't be much overlap with that thread...

    Floating aquatics for tropical terrarium?

    Hey folks I'm developing a plan for a semi aquatic tank and I'm curious if there is a floating Utric species (preferably larger traps) or form of Aldrovanda that can live in a tropical vivarium year round and not need cool temps to form turions & go dormant?

    Ampullarias & Geosesarma crab update

    Here's a few update pics Overhead shot One of the ponds made with a large reptile dish. Not sure why but I have to fill them from 1/2 to full everyday, could the emergent aquatics actually transpire that much water everyday? They're 1" thick faux stone dishes made of plastic resin so they...

    looking for Capensis seeds.

    I am trying to get some cap seeds. (I would rather have red form, but it really doesn't matter) I do not have any CPs to trade, but some nice aquatics I do: Small lemon button fern. grows fairly quick, and once large enogh will spread spores.

    aquatic plant to terrarium plant conversions

    I am sure some of you have seen the "tropica" style aquatic plants sold in the clear tubes with the water gel crystals. These are aquarium plants growing in very humid mini terrarium conditions and I have been hardening mine off for use in vivariums where they are growing out of water but with...

    Aquatic Utrics in between pots?

    Riiight. So I have a plastic tray, probably 1 and a half feet wide, 4 inches or so deep with peat at the bottom and so the water is quite tea colored. There is a big gap of room where I have nothing to put there (2 inches tall, 5 inches wide) and space in between the pots. I think an easy...

    I'm conducting a small experiment....

    I have a cat box that I filled with water and emptied a bag of the dried LFS in it. Then I placed my U. macrorhyza in it. From what I read, the aquatics need solid material to latch onto. So now I have an outdoor mini-swamp. I'm also hoping the dried LFS will come alive before the snow flies...
