    A couple things my collection is lacking...

    Hello friends, I'm lacking a couple of things. First, I'd like to grow some s. leucophylla seed. Collected from a leuco field would be ideal! Otherwise, cross-polinated pure seed from nice plants is what I'd be interested in. I really like the species and want to raise a few of my own. Also...

    Hi all! This is my first post on the forums! Over the months, I've learned most of what I know from snooping on threads on this board. I've been dabbling in CP cultivation since early spring, but recently I got serious about it (read: "got bitten by the bug") and got myself a grow rack and...

    Drosera arcturi

    So I've been doing some research on this species and I'm very interested in its alpine nature, I was wondering if anyone at TF is successfully growing it, I hear it's fairly difficult. I've already found cultivation threads, I'm just looking for any other useful information. Thanks.

    I just picked up my copies of 'Carnivorous Plants and their Habitats Vol. 1 & Vol. 2' a couple of days ago. Once again I am very impressed with the 1442 pages of carnivorous plant genera spread out over the two tomes in this latest offering. Of interest to me was the 34 pages each of text...

    Tribute to Drosera indica "Pale Pink FLower"

    I just wanted to share some pictures of this awesome sundew that is little-known and little-grown in the US. The reason I like it is because of it's large size and superior trapping ability--it can catch houseflies with ease :0o: This sundew catches more than a VFT! A forest of them is...

    Drosera capensis in South Africa

    Hi, i will continue my series of pictures from Southafrica with D. capensis. We found them at three locations: Gifberg, Bains Kloof and Theewaterskloof Dam. In many cases, the plants are growing verticaly on rocks. All locations have in common, that they are very wet! Although, D. capensis can...
