Though last year especially was quite cold, and the average high is significantly lower here, my usda zone 7 conditions aren't terribly unlike Utricularia warburgii's home climate in Zhejiang, China (boy the searching I had to do to come up with more than "found in China, where it grows in sunny...

I can swap with temperate ping ( seeds - hibernaculae - bulbilles )

Hello, yesterday I picked up a pinguicula Caerulea, it's my first ping and I could really use some tips to keep it alive. I know it's a warm temperate species, and that I need to use distilled, RO, or rain water only. I'm in zone 9b on the west coast and I'm not sure if it needs to be grown...

I lied... :jester:
If there is anything that I don't have for trade, but you are dying to have, send me a pm and I'll see if I see what I can start propagating for ya. I'm always looking for different clones than what I have, so if you have something I already have on my growlist, send me a...
Overview of the indoor setup, light is a 6 bulb t5ho with two 3500k bulbs and 4 6500k bulbs.
Sorry for the focus issues in some photos, still learning with the new DSLR. I would love some tips...
D. Venusta (shipper folded the plant :rant:)
D. Spatulata, I don't think I've...
After a long pause growing plants I recently started againin January 2016. Hopefully the spring will allow me to ramp up slowly and see what species I can grow outside without much trouble.
- D. californica
- D. muscipula typical form
- D. muscipula (sprouted)...
Well I grow two different types of passion flower. Passiflora incarnata and p. Caerulea. The p. Caerulea does ever flower, but produces beautiful foliage so I don't mind. My p. Incarnata is at the end of its first year of growth and had a flower, now is producing a fruit with , I hope, viable...
D. muscipula typical
D. anglica Kanaele Bog, Kauai, HI
D. anglica near Lake Constance, Germany
D. "burkeana" (most likely not!)
D. capensis albino

A pretty common technique these days where one species or hybrid is a cool grower is to graft that plant onto a more temperature tolerant rootstock. It's often observed that a heat tolerant rootstock confers greater temperature tolerance on the grafted plant. If anyone wants to discuss...
This is really overkill, but since I already have the photos, as well as tons propagated...
I'm looking for some of the very red sphagnum moss. I'm giving my mom a new Nepenthes and I wanted to have some for that new plant, as well as her existing Nepenthes. Red is her favorite color, and she...
This is a giveaway for postage for 2 people, decided in about a week by random number.
Passiflora 'Purple Haze' is a very solid hybrid, fairly temperature tolerant and hardy to about 18 F, I understand.
It's P. caerulea x P. amethystina long peduncle.
I got cuttings a while ago from a...
I was over at my mom's, partly to get a picture of a Begonia, and I broke a piece off that plant by accident. So I decided to gather a few things and make it interesting.
Here's what I left with:
1) Kalanchoe 'Pink Butterflies'
2) Calceolaria mexicana seedling (annual, reseeds)
My Passiflora 'Preciosa' desperately needs to be cut back--I plan to do it Sunday. If anyone can get any use out of some of the cuttings, I can send about 10 nodes (or possibly more, depending on interest). 2 nodes is enough to root a new plant, and they root in water. There's a good chance...
Jpappy's porch growing photo thread
Got a bunch of new plants in today and ready to start my outdoor collection. All US natives and hybrids at the moment. Apologies if Sarracenia names are a bit incorrect, my taxonomic knowledge of the genus is a bit rough so this is how they were labeled from...
I propagate a lot of Passifloras. Here's the deal.
For a trade, I have the following: P. lindeniana, P. sanguinolenta, P. 'Preciosa' (P. macrocarpa x P. alata), P. foetida (from Oaxaca). I'm interested in trading for Nepenthes plants, cuttings (rooted/unrooted), seedlings, seeds.
