    Noid A1 - Sarracenia - No Longer Available

    Drosera anglica seeds for trade

    Hey folks. I just harvested this season's D. anglica seeds from my bog garden. I have a number of ripe looking seed pods that are starting to leak seeds. I'd love to trade them all in bulk or bit by bit depending on what you have to offer. These are temperate plants from the southeast...

    Sarracenia pitcher lid drying

    Hi there, A few Sarrs in my recirculating mini bog had this issue for a while. The tip of the lid begins drying. The plants push out new pitchers regularly and seem to be doing fine overall. Plans were inoculated with beneficial mites and some time after that when the issue persisted were...

    P. lusitanica

    Found these P. lusitanica sprouting this year in a pot of Calopogon and a pot of sarracenia generously given to me last year on my way back from California, cute little things. They were not there when I brought the pots home last year, so assuming they sprouted this spring from seed that were...

    Trip to Goat Marsh near Mt. St. Helens (Pics)

    Yesterday four of us piled in a car and headed out of Portland up to Mount St. Helens to go see wild carnivores. We spotted Drosera rotundifolia and also Utricularia that we haven't figured out yet which species it is. The Drosera was growing on Sphagnum moss, we think Sphagnum squarrosum...

    Will U. Subulata survive freezing winters?

    It is found in a few remote locations right here in Michigan, but I was wondering if just any strain would survive the winter here in my bog. I have a small seed-grown culture that I thought would look cool and help choke out the weeds. Nick

    My newest, simplist bog garden. (Sharing pics)

    Just got this set up a few days ago. It is made out of a 33 gallon extra long aquarium I found at a garage sale for $5. So far it only has some simple, common sarrs in it but I hope to add some rarities in the future. The whole thing: One of my favorites, S. Minor: A simple but beautiful...

    Calopogon tuberosus

    Got this from a mixed bag of 90% white/10% pink Calopogons, and was hoping for pink, so this makes the flower even more exciting! I have it growing in an outdoor bog pot with S. leucophylla 'Tarnok', S. 'Carolina Yellow Jacket', S. 'Daina's Delight', D. m. 'Akai Ryu', D. m. 'Red Sawtooth'...

    Mini Bog of Sarracenias Have Brown Tips

    Planted these at the beginning of the season and haven't had one mature pitcher from any of them. All either deform or brown at the tip. Plants get 12+ hours of direct sunlight and are in standing r/o water. Some pitchers are deformed (looks like aphid damage) could they also be causing the...

    Something is attacking the plants. Need help IDing the problem.

    Hello, The plants below grow in two different pots outside. One pot with Venus Fly taps sits in a tray of water. The other is a recirculating self watering pot (water changed every two weeks). Plants are also treated with White shark and Ampac trichoderma mix with every water change. This...

    Weed prevention and covering suggestions?

    Hi everyone! I was wondering what you use in your outdoor bog gardens to keep those pesky little weeds from growing? I have one mini bog with pea gravel on the top, and it works well. I only have Sarrs in that one. But when thinking on a bigger scale, it can get costly. So, I have a 10 lbs bag...

    More Portland Presence!

    Hey all, I noticed there's a few of you in here from around the Portland, OR area, so I'll be one more to the party! Scatterpants and I are good friends and have been feeding each others plant addictions the last few months, particularly in the CP/orchid area. While he tends to focus more on...

    Pinguicula vulgaris

    Early last spring ( 2015) I was ordering a couple of hard to find Darlingtonia ( If they are actually as described) and I decided to add Pinguicula vulgaris seed to the order as I hadn't grown the species for many years. Nothing at all happened in the pot last year except for the customary...

    Hail storm damage!

    We had a huge hail and thunderstorm roll through last night with some pretty good-sized hail. Thankfully I got the vulnerable pots (freshly potted stuff) under cover before it hit, but the bog I can't exactly move out of the way, haha. Fortunately not that many sarrs have open pitchers yet, but...
