    That pesky grasshopper!!

    Hi, Do you remember not long ago I showed a photo of a grasshopper enjoying the bromeliad flower. Well, obviously my nepenthes didn't do such a good job of attracting it, since last weekend I saw 'it' or one of its' family happily eating my fireball bromeliad! Here is a close-up.

    Where are my cacti?

    Ferns grow like weeds here in Singapore. Not just in the cacti pots but also in the larva stones as well. This is a pot of ferns that I pulled up from another nearby bromeliad bed. As much as I love ferns sometimes you have to just pull them up or keep on cutting them back.

    I am down to the last two basal buds. This plant became ill with another plant in my lowland tank. I found that the problem started with a Bromeliad I had purchased at the local Wal-mart. I did not realize it had developed rot inside. The Bromeliad died promptly and with terrible odor. The...

    Has anyone grown one of these? My flower is dying, and I read that when the flower dies, the whole plant goes with it. Is this true? Actually, I am not sure if my flower is dying... it is loosing its color, and just looks BLAH. Does anyone know what I am talking about?

    Utrics in small pots

    I was thinking that since some utrics grow in bromeliad urns wich can be big and small. If you were to grow a species that grows like that could you grow it in a smallish pot. Since they put out little runners to other urns would they do this when they filled up there pot. I was thinking of...
