    Aloha fm Makiki

    New to carnivorous plants but finally got a really nice pitcher to add to my "living wall"[emoji2]. Climate here in Hawaii makes it easier to culture these guys along side my bromeliads & mini orchids. Hope to learn techniques & tips from forum members on keeping these interesting plants! Sent...

    Utricularia quelchii question

    I am new to the forum but I'm no stranger to growing carnivorous plants. I've read that Utricularia quelchii grows in the urns of bromeliads, so I also want to know if they can grow in a container of water. I've also seen some growers growing epiphytic Utricularia on filter media or sponge...

    Hi from California!

    Hi all, I've been into carnivorous plants for a long time and always wanted to grow nepenthes but didn't think it would be realistic since Davis is practically a desert. Last summer I got a 60 or so gallon terrarium at the thrift store and grow lights and started growing some nepenthes, a...

    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...

    Some pics before winter hits.

    I can already tell some plants are hitting the slow decline to dormancy, and the rest will probably slow down soon too. Because everything is outside in natural light, or behind a window with the same, even the Neps stop pitchering for the season once the hours of daylight dips beneath their...

    Vacation ??? Project

    My wife has been on me for several months now; the ground cover on the side of the house is too overgrown – it has to go. I put it off, as men often do…. But, I took a couple of weeks of “vacation” and she was quite instant that something had to be done. So I borrowed my buddy’s truck and...

I was wondering if i could use the hook on the chieling to hang some sort of bromeliad in front of the window? i think the window faces...

    Looking for trades to expand a teaching CP collection

    Hi everyone! I would love to begin doing some plant trades in order to benefit my workplace and obtain a more complete and interesting collection of CPs. Because my teaching greenhouses aren't specifically specialized in CPs, there are significant holes in our collection and many genera are...
