    Mounting a bromeliad?

    Hey, terraforums. I want to mount a small bromeliad to some cork bark and add it to my gecko terrarium. Are they safe for crested geckos? Can bromeliads handle distilled water? I know that tillandsia can't take distilled water. Would a mounted bromeliad be ok being sprayed with distilled water...

    Carnivorous Bromeliad Germination?

    I was lucky enough to come across a packet of Brocchinia hechtioides and im really excited to plant them and get started. Does anybody know some good techniques to give them a jump? (or any requirements that they need?)

    A Visit to the Botanical Gardens

    With my adventure to Denver Botanic Gardens, many a wonder had been witnessed for this day. I decided to take more pictures, as these are 90% of what crowds my photo storage. Sorry for the tater quality pictures. You approach the turnstiles and know that when you get there, you have to give...

    Winter is Coming......

    And like most plant folks who live where the snow flies, one of the major limits on what I keep is lighted space. My house doesn't have much window space, and some of what's there is reserved for cats. I have a few set ups with artificial lighting, but still run out of space every winter...

    I can buy an atomic bomb faster than a Brocchinia Reducta !

    Frustration abounds ! I've been searching the world over for a Reducta since I'm into CP's bigtime and can't seem to locate one for sale. Not in the USA anyway. Ironic that the Catopsis grows wild in Florida and I have to send to Europe to buy one. Fast chance of getting it through Customs...

    Sarr dormancy in botanical gardens?

    There are a couple reasonably local botanical gardens that have carnivorous plants in their collections... The closest one (Matthaei) has a couple Sarrs, in with some VFT's and Drosera. And a hybrid unidentified Nep or two. The farther, but nicer one (Frederik Meijer) has a much broader...

    My small Utricularia nelumbifolia in a bromeliad

    small Utricularia nelumbifolia in a bromeliad Not to long ago I recieved a generous portion of this amazing species, so I took a small division without any growth, and tucked it into my neo kautskyi. Im amazed at how it has decided to grow bladders inside the axil. I didnt want to disturb the...

    Tillandsia Giveaway

    Hi! I'm giving away a nice sized Tillandsia cyanea, pupped it off last year. I'd be amazed if it doesn't bloom next spring. And I'm throwing in a small pup of a bromeliad, a Cryptanthus Earth Star, I believe the name is Pink Starlite, but no guarantee on that. I have a bunch of these under...

    The Average 16-Year-Old's Room

    As you will quickly realize, this title is sarcastic. I am not the average teenager. Instead of being attached to my phone, I'm attached to my hobbies. Whenever people walk into my room, they are stunned and have no idea such things existed. My room is easily recognizable even from outside the...

Amp (green) and N. Jacquelineae, from seeds to...

    New to Bromeliads- How are mine doing?

    Hi, I recently started to grow plants, beginning with an Aechmea bromeliad. It's a hybrid cultivar called "haiku". Since I got it, it has grown a little more roots, and a few leaves. I made some mistakes with it like putting an osmocote granule into its cup for a few months. only recently have...

    When to Separate Pups from Bromeliad?

    I have a bromeliad that flowered and produced 5 pups. When do I separate them from the mum? And I read the mother plant will die after this, is that true? I feel like it isn't, but if it is true I'll be like legitimately upset. :-( While I'm at it with the questions... Do you think I could get...
