    Anybody know anything about Nepenthes pitopangii?

    This species is very new in cultivation, so there isn't much information I've been able to find about it. It seems to be considered an intermediate grower in most places, but the type specimen was found at 1800m, and the second population at 1400m, so it seems like it could be a...

    Drosera banksii

    Also looking for this rare Australian Drosera. I heard there used to be European collections with it in the past but am unsure as of present; I've never seen this species in cultivation before. Very keen to trade for it. Check out my growlist and we can definitely make a deal :)

    U. resupinata cultivation

    Hello! I just got a plug of this in the mail and was wondering whether anyone here has some cultivation tips. From what I've read it's somewhere between a terrestrial and an affixed aquatic. The photos online seem to show it sometimes growing submerged with a cm or two of water, and sometimes in...

    P. crystallina/hirtiflora complex cultivation

    Hey, I was just wondering if anyone here grows plants from the P. crystallina complex and what conditions you use for them. I'm thinking about picking up a P. megaspilaea, but the info is pretty sparse. Do the species from this complex just grow like normal temperate pings in terms of temps and...

    Tropical Drosera rotundifolia from Japan?

    Hello! I hear that there are Drosera rotundifolia in the Kagoshima Prefecture, Japan, that may grow in tropical conditions. Is anyone here growing these plants and/or can report on them? Takaaki Kagawa in his book Drosera of Japan mentions colonies that have a shorter dormancy requirement, but...

    N. Peter D'amato cultivation?

    Hey all. I recently found out about the nepenthes hybrid 'Peter D'amato' and was wondering how difficult it is to care for. I know that it's a cross between lowii and ventricosa and thought that it's ventricosa genes might mean that it's fairly easy to care for. Anyone who grows this hybrid...

    Drosera flexicaulis cultivation

    Does anyone have experience cultivating Drosera flexicaulis? I have it growing indoors in a terrarium under lights, but I'm not sure that that is the right thing to do since there isn't that much light and it looks rather etiolated. If I grew it outside I would be able to give it full sun but...

    *PAID* Nepenthes cecilae (Rareraven $35)

    Up for auction is one seed-grown N. cecilae. It is roughly 4 inches in diameter and this species appears to grow rather quickly and is not too picky about temps. I have found that it can be grown in the intermediate to highland range. This species produces deep rich maroon and black lower...

    *PAID* 3 Small Partridge Breast Aloe Offsets (Swagalotus $10)

    Also known as "Aloe Variegata" and "Tiger Aloe" this is a hard one to find for cultivation. Will grow well in shaded/partly sunny conditions in a well-draining/rocky soil. Slow grower, but tends to offset a fair bit at maturity. You will receive the 3 small rooted offsets pictured below, sent...

    Mounting nepenthes

    Hey everyone that reads this. Ok so I know that there are some species of nepenthes, like veitchii, that are epiphytes and grow mounted their entire lives. That being said I think I've seen only one or two in cultivation that grow mounted. I'm curious of why that is. Is it hard? Is it a humidity...

    NE Nepenthes Edwardsiana

    So as some of you may know Native Exotics has released their own clone of Edwardsiana and pre orders were taken a while back.(I pre ordered some) Does any one know if their clone is new in cultivation or if they have released them in the past. Because I've never seen any Eddys labeled NE CLONE...

    Claims that Cannabis is Para-Carnivorous

    This thread is in no way intended to be an endorsement of illegal marijuana use. Indeed, one could infer from this discussion that consumption of trichome resin is harmful. One internet writer showed photos of cannabis trichomes, claiming: "There is no other plant like this in nature". I...

    Grow shelf advice!

    Hi yall, ive been growing cp's for a few years here and there, and since I'm somewhat settled in my current place, I thought I'd set up a more permanent grow shelf. I dragged a free-standing wooden shelf from the backyard to my bedroom's south-facing window, put a few trays of live sphagnum and...

    Hi from Minne-snow-ta

    Well I finally did it. I've joined Terraforums. I was encouraged by a fellow CP grower, and have been reluctant. I normally hang out on OCPS which is a small friendly community of folks, who share many of my growing conditions. So, joining Terraforums feels a bit like a first trip to a big...

    The Name Game - Part 2

    Australian Drosera in Cultivation Allen Lowrie's Carnivorous Plants of Australia Magnum Opus at time of publication Dec. 16, 2013 listed some 241 species. Many of these were new species or reassignment of ranks (subspecies or varieties). A few had been in cultivation before even having been...

    Sensors and Automation

    I've been working more and more with soil and atmospheric sensors for my job. It's gotten me thinking more about using (cheaper!) sensors and loggers for cultivation or other fun projects. Anyone here using any sensors or controls for their grow spaces? Had any particularly good or bad...
