    Soil mix for n. "lady luck"

    Hey, all. I have recently acquired an n. "lady luck" and it's in a bio dome with a 1/2" plug of soil in it. Naturally, I want to re-pot it. What is the optimal soil mix for this cultivar? Any other care tips for n. "lady luck" are also appreciated.

    Akai Ryu 20th anniversary coming soon

    Akai Ryu was introduced to the world in June of 1996. It was published in the Carnivorous Plant Newsletter. I think that was the first registered cultivar for Dionaea. I fell in love with it instantly and bought one as soon as it was commercially available. It didn't survive long for me but it...

    Aphrodite vs. moctezumae x gigantea

    They look so similar what are the noticeable differences between the cultivar Aphrodite and moctezumae x gigantea? Or perhaps not so noticeable differences?

    Need help with ampullaria variety

    I've had this N. ampullaria in my care for a while, but I don't know what variety or cultivar it is, if it even is one. I ask because I took several cuttings earlier and the id is now important if I trade these once they root. Hopefully these pictures are enough. Thanks

    *PAID* Utricularia bisquamata 'Betty's Bay' (Nauz $15)

    For bid is a roughly one-half inch plug of Utricularia bisquamata 'Bettys' Bay'. This cultivar is the famous "tame" version of the species that does not invade other pots by producing unwanted seed and, in addition, it has larger flowers. Nice stuff. Sorry I don't have any photos but it is just...

    Red fly trap hardiness?

    I have been wanting to get a red vft for a while now, but I have heard they are less hardy than the green varieties. Is this true? I was looking into getting an akai ryu cultivar.

    Pinguicula 'Titan' summer dormant?

    I've heard from some care guides (One specifically in mind) that the cultivar 'Titan' enters succulent growth in the summer, rather than in the winter. This seems really strange to me given the parentage (agnata x macrophylla), but I have increased the photoperiod in my growspace, and my 'Titan'...

    WTB: Sarr 'Reptilian Rose'

    WTB: Sarr 'Reptilian Rose' I know this is a pricey cultivar and hard to find but hopefully I'll have a little luck here. I'm a nepenthes lover at heart and not usually sarracenia but this one looks wonderful enough that I need to see for myself. List Date: 1/30/2016 For more info, click...

    What is this sarr?

    I bought a kit from that big name home improvement store that sells kits in death cubes. It came with a sarr and a VFT, or to be more precise, a big clump of rhizomes with a twisted mess of a small FVT growing from it. I planted it and hoped for the best that somewhere in the mess a sarr rhizome...

    Dionaea M. 'Jaws' Progression

    Figured I'd add this here... I've got some succession pictures for you. First, though, I will give you some background on this plant. It came out of dormancy this past spring and flowered for me, because I wanted to get seed from it, and my FTS Maroon Monster was flowering and I thought that...
