    CPNs & CP books for your plants & seeds (or garlic)

    I've moved a lot in the last few years, and while I was unable to keep my plants, some books and things have made the move. At this point, I'm ready to start a small collection again, and am willing to trade my books for your extra plants or seeds. I'm easy to please: even the most common...

    A guide to Nepenthes villosa cultivation

    While looking up information for the cultivation I have found that there are very few guides to growing N. villosa, so I thought I would write up a basic guide to its cultivation from the information I have found and my limited experience (two months) with the plant. Nepenthes villosa or the...

    Red Sphag ---> Green Sphag ---> Red Sphag?

    I saw some red sphagnum at my nep nursery a month or two back and asked if I could buy some, and since they don't officially grow it and just happened to have a bit, they gave me a rather large chunk of red sphagnum. Went home with that and my new Nepenthes and put it around the...

    Lances Nepenthes

    Thought I'd start a new thread since I just got a bunch of new Nepenthes with a veitchi k on the way and a veitchi candy striped not too far behind. Heres some pics of the HL chamber with its new fogger which hopefully won't die... as you can see its gotten pretty jam packed so if anyone knows...

    Been a while :P

    After expanding my grow area into a rack, I started to look to other plants besides just CPs. After a while I gave my CPs away to a local grower just like I said I would and decided to grow other exotics or lesser known plants like Robusta coffee and black cherry tomatoes. I started a youtube...

    Jumpstarting Inermix x Bongos

    I got this plant 4-6 months ago and it has not done much of anything for me. It looks very much like it did when I first received the plant; it has put out a few leaves but has not even thought about inflating a pitcher. Conditions: Grown in a basement with a variety of Neps and Heliamphora...

    Scientists say America is too dumb for democracy to thrive

    There was an article on a political blog this morning, describing a study at Cornell, which suggested that our democracy -- our republic anyway -- was in danger because the vox populi was too stupid to recognize what was good for them. My favorite quote was an Orwellian (maybe Huxleyian) riff by...

    Cissus (I think) quadrangularis

    Hello again! I was at a neighbors house having coffee and jawing and I had mentioned in the past that I wanted a plant they had planned to dig up and get rid of as the top had died. A grapefruit tree grafted to trifoliate orange...long story short it was agreed that I could dig it up and take...

    Tea leaves

    I have heard a lot of good about using coffee to give Nepenthes a boost. I am curious if (used, no creamer) tea leaves scattered about the surface, or even mixed into the soil mix, would have a similar effect on the bog-ish plants; Sarracenia, Dionaea, Drosera, Pinguicula. The leaves are acid...

    Coffee Grounds as Medium?

    I'm just wondering if i can use coffee grounds (the soil-like things that you get from grinding coffee beans) as medium for my Nepenthes plants? I read a lot of testimonials about the wonders of coffee (drink) as fertilizers for Neps but I've never read of using the grounds as medium. What say...

    Instant Coffee for neps?

    Would instant coffee be Ok to use on neps? I did not realise you were supposed to use the coffee beans brewed type, and so I put some instant coffee on some of my that needed a boost. Will this still help them or should I not have used instant coffee.

    Found some coffee in the cupboard, is it safe for nepenthes?
