This year I planted my first CP bog terrarium in many years, and I've been really pleased with the results. I wasn't terribly confident based on all the warnings you find online regarding the suitability of CPs for terrarium life, but after a little experimentation with lighting and the level of...
After a bit of digging, I found online that Drosera pollen, at least for tuberous plants, is viable for at least 3-4, maybe 5 weeks. I also know from experience that pollen is usually usable on (south african) plants for a few days after flowering but I have no experience keeping it in the...

Hi All, I've been dealing with an issue for a good bit now and I think one of the two of my D.Spatula plants has just about bit the dust:
First of all my setup:
Lights: Agrobrite 4 bulb/2 foot T5 HO (Amazon.com : Agrobrite T5, FLT28, 2 Foot, 8-Tube Fixture with Included Fluorescent Grow Lights...
Hi all, im pretty new to the hobby but like with most things I get into I have to know EVERYTHING about them. Almost to the point of OCD.
That being said this looks like an awesome place to meet people and gather information. I've been growing Carnivorous plants for about 6 months now. 2 Cape...

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...
The Cape Sundew lives in arid South Africa, and I heard that it can go long spells without watering.
Drosera Binata, the fork-leaved Sundew, supposedly can survive long spells without watering too.
I have heard that D. Brevifola does OK under those conditions too.
So what are the Sundews that...
I'm new to CPs. I just got my Cape Sundew from the mail on Thursday and I was wondering when they can recover and start producing dews again. Right now it's under a T5 HO light (which I just got last night). I set a timer for 16 hours. It's in the tank that gets up to 80 degrees. I got it...
I received this specimen from a friend in the Western Cape. Stuck it into the ground and it started growing. Does any have information regarding this plant? First time I have seen this exact plant. :-O
It's an awesome looking plant, wish I had photos of the Mother plant though.
It looks like we'll soon be seeing launches from Cape Canaveral once again, as Boeing and Space-X plan on delivering astronauts to the International Space Station by 2017.
For someone who grew up during the height of the Space Age -- many of us recall or even had models of the lunar lander...
Hi everyone as anyone can assume i'm pretty new here but im pretty old in the plant world hahaha!
The seeds i am offering are N. Lingulata and N. Reinwardtiana (a bunch if mixed color clones) they havent been sitting long and i would like to try to trade them with a few people before their...
So I had been reading an excellent book called _Carnivorous Plants of the Western Cape South Africa 2009_
and noticed something very peculiar and wanted to share it :-D. It points out the fact that Drosera Cistifloras natural pollinators are monkey bettles (fuzzy little things)...
Today a few of the NECPS members took a trip to a few bogs on the Cape. We visited 3 different locations, all somewhat close to each other yet all ecologically different.
Site # 1
The entrance road and habitats where we found the plants . A fairly dry site, very unique among New England bog...
I have one pack of Albino Cape Sundew Seeds (25+). They are totally free and postage has been paid by aerogrower. First member to post up here AND send me a PM with their address, gets the seed pack!
This is my first CP project and first CPs. A Sarracenia hybrid, Cobra lily, Venus Fly Trap, Cape Sundew, Purple Pitcher x2, and a Sarracenia.
Built this little thing myself, I think I should redo this so the water is flowing and I hate the brown moss :-( make it so dark and dead looking.
Once I was in a store and there was a corner in which some really strange plants were standing.
They shall eat meat or something like that and they are probably dangerous. No risc no fun. I took one of the glistening with the sticky leaves.
