ever since I have gotten it, My spatulata has been very picky, and has not been looking very good.... well, ever really. It being my first plant, I was bound to make some mistakes, but I want to make sure I don't make one final one and end up finishing it off. What I'm trying to get to is this...
Hi wonderful C.P. people, greetings from kentucky guess you want to know a little bit about me. So i started growing back in 2013 started off with D.Buramannii, they did great for the first 5 months then we had a good ice storm and i lost my electric for a week so my first plants froze to death...
A friend of mine gave me a Dendrobium kingianum and told me that it was quite hardy and forgiving. However, I haven't figure out yet how exactly to tell when it truly needs watering or if I am over-watering. The problem is that it is rock-mounted and potted in a clay pot. Also, there is mulch...

I have (3) Sarracenia. One is a NoID and two are recent purchases this year of " S. Leuchophylla 'Hurricane Creek' ". The Hurricane Creek already seems like it's going to be much bigger than my death cube NoID Sarr. The NoID did really well last year and put on a lot of growth...

Hello from Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USDA Zone 5B
My name is Mike and I'm returning to my love of growing C.P. after too many years of letting life get in the way. I've been growing for a year now after not growing for about 15 years. My favorites are the subtropical Drosera.
I'm rebuilding my...
Well, it's not quite death valley, but I did make it out to Anza Borrego park yesterday. It's been raining a lot this past winter, including yesterday (at least coastally) so all of the mountains are unbelievably green this year. Here's the view on the approach towards the desert from Desert...
I have a beautiful Nep for trade. I got it from one of our Terraforums members a while ago, and it's getting too big for my little space. It is a complex cross: N. (maxima x ?) x (fusca x ?) . Right now, it produces pitchers that are about 2 inches in size, but each leaf gets bigger and...
Upon my nightly scuttle, I happened upon a very nice phalaenopsis.
Im a sucker for the Doom-Bin plants at the back of the supermarket.
However, I normally never buy orchids because im very skilled at killing them.
Also, I dont really know much about them. I currently have a vanilla orchid,
Some years back I saw a short article in the Carnivorous Plant Newsletter where a grower was describing how they had taken some of the plantlets that are often formed on the old flower stalks of Drosophyllum lusitanicum and rooted them into new plants. However, it seems no one I have heard from...
Hey guys! First of all, let me start off by saying this: pings are just a mystery to me. I have killed more of these guys than any other plant I have ever owned trying to get it right with them. That said, by some kind of miracle, I have managed to keep 4 alive for just shy of a full year...
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...
So I don't have a lot, but i'm super proud of my plants. I talk to them and tell them they are doing good. They seem to like it. Here it is:
I have four S. purpureas, a couple i lost the tags for, so at this point i call them all purpureas. I have a S. Red throat, a couple Luecophylla...
So I walked into lowes today, and as usual looked at the plants. They had the usual many almost dead VFTs, but in the back of the $10 row, of course not the $5 row, I saw this little Nep screaming to save him or he'd eat me in the next life. First photo is in the box, second is it re-potted into...
Hey folks. I'm very new around here. This is my first attempt at CP. I've made the classic hobbyist mistake that I've scolded so many fellow reefers for doing, which is buying livestock before you research. Luckily I didn't mess up too bad
I recently picked up a S. Purpurea, and a VFT from...
