    Forum move... Prepare for some strangeness and down time. Check your book mark....

    First off, check your bookmark... it should be www.terraforums.com or terraforums.com (either should work) I just don't know if /forums at the end will still work, so best to make sure you don't use it. So, I'm going to be moving the forum over to a new server company... quite a bit faster...

    Double pest problem on D. Intermedia?

    I had noticed my D. Intermedia had quite a few curled and twisted leaves and flowerstalks for some time now. One of the stalks ended up dying, the second stalk got... Weird. It divided in half, and it looked like a D. Binata leaf. That's when I took a very close look and saw tiny green bugs on...

    Bugs Found in Sphagnum Moss

    Hi, I was looking at the spaghnum moss of my venus fly trap, and I noticed that there were these tiny bugs crawling around in it that were no bigger than the head of a pin. They were too small to be able to take a picture of, so I tried to draw a picture of what they looked like. Can anyone ID...

    Drosophyllum Killer Babies

    My first Drosophyllum germinated July 18th, the second a few days later. They have both caught prey already. They are between 1/2 inch and 3/4 inch tall. I did not help them in any way. I did not put the bugs on the plant. They did this on their own at only a week old. Way to go! Sorry about the...

    Safe pesticide for pinguicula

    Do Mexican pinguicula tolerate imidicloprid? I have heard they're sensitive to pesticides and fungicides. I have mealy bugs on a few pings. Really weird.

    I've been noticing these little bugs around my plants quite a bit. What are they and do they hurt anything? Thanks

    Beginner's Pictorial Guide to Drosera Leaf, Root, and Scape Cutting Chapter #1

    Most Drosera can be easily and quickly propagated by leaf cutting, root cuttings, and flower scape cuttings. (A flower scape is just another words for the developing unfurling flower stalk as it emerges from your plant.) This will give you a mature plant faster than raising one from seed...

    Desert Rose pest id

    Hey guys. What do you thing this is? Mealy bugs? Powdery mildew? Will a 3 in 1 pest control work on this, or will it be too harsh on the plant? I'm usually pretty good about pest control but this is a new specimen for me and I didn't check it thoroughly when I bought it :( Sent from my...

    Hello from Karnak, IL

    Hello, My name is Chris Duncan and I have been growing carnivorous plants for 5 years now. After a few deaths with the recent horrible winters I have actually gotten good at this. So far I have tried my hand at Flytraps, Nepenthes (lowland, highland, and hybrids), sarracenia, drosera(only...

    Pest in Drosera Regia Soil

    Hi, I just bought a Drosera Regia and noticed tiny bugs crawling in its soil. I don't know what they are and am afraid that they might harm the plant or spread to other nearby pots. Some grew out of the soil and are now stuck in the water of the tray. Only those seem to jump around a little...

    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...

    Help with pest ID.

    I found these bugs in a closed cup of ceph leaf pulls. The have a shiny black abdomen and 2 pretty good sized antenna compared to it's body. Small, like mite size, maybe slightly larger. Capable of decent speeds, faster than mites for sure.

    Pest control on sarracenia.

    There's something eating my Dana's Delight, but not my purpurea or any other plant in the bog pot. It chews small holes into the side of the pitcher, which falls over after a couple days of this. I haven't seen what it is yet, but I think it's some sort of katydid. I'll stay up later to see...

    Pinguicula Grandiflora x vallisnerifolia

    Hello everyone, I have a new pinguicula and am very happy with it. When I received the plant only had a very small (without mucilage) leaves, but is now growing rapidly and looks very healthy. In short, as you can see things haven't gone wrong, has many bugs stuck to the leaves. My major...

    Pest ID with Microscope

    So I noticed on two of my nepenthes that the growth tips and new leaves seem to have these bubbles on them. A closer look revealed these small white bugs, and I somehow got one under a microscope for an ID. Does this look familiar to any of you? They are extremely tiny. Thanks

    Up for auction is a couple feet off the top of this N. khasiana x viking*. I received it a couple years ago from another grower, and it's proceeded to take over my livingroom. I've gotten rid of numerous basals, but it's time for the top of it to get the chop. It's the one taking over the...
