    My experience growing U. jamesoniana

    I thought that, now that my U. jamesoniana has flowered a few times, that I'd share my growing methods. I grow it in a small, 2 inch net pot filled with dead LFS moss. The pot sits in an aquarium on top of dead LFS moss and is surrounded by live LFS. I water by filling up the bottom of the...

    Utricularia quelchii question

    I am new to the forum but I'm no stranger to growing carnivorous plants. I've read that Utricularia quelchii grows in the urns of bromeliads, so I also want to know if they can grow in a container of water. I've also seen some growers growing epiphytic Utricularia on filter media or sponge...

    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...

    Mini Orchids for trade

    Looking for Heli's I don't have, HL Neps, or Sarracenias to go in my bogs. Most are very good sized divisions with the exception of a couple of Masdevallias which are 2-6 leaves and the Bulbo's are 2-3 pseudobulbs. I also have a bunch of small epiphytic ferns that are great in terrariums if...

    Any thoughts on mounting an Aglaomorpha coronans?

    (Sorry if this is a repeat for a few people. I copied this post verbatim from another forum) Any thoughts on mounting an Aglaomorpha coronans fern? Perhaps the question would do better on a fern oriented forum, but I figured I'd ask, just in case anyone here has experience, or just an...

    New grower looking for epiphytic Utrics!

    Hello there! I'm beginning to get into growing epiphytic Utricularia, and I was wondering if anybody out there had any plants they would be willing to offer. I'm also looking to start growing Byblis and Genlisea, but I realize these are often harder to find. Any tips on where to look for these...

    Hello from Brooklyn, NY!

    Hello everyone! I'm a CP fan/grower who lives in Brooklyn, NY, and I was wondering if there were any other enthusiasts living in Brooklyn or Metropolitan New York who would like to meet up at some point and perhaps start a small meeting group. We could share plants, or organize trips, and...

    2.6 gallon terrarium and a dearth of inspiration

    I recently acquired a leaky 2.6 gallon Top Fin aquarium (can't say no to free containers) and am wondering if it can be put to use somehow. I've searched far and wide on the web but all I find is information on nano planted tanks and the like. My first thought was some species of Cyricosmus...

    Orchids to trade for Helis/Utrics

    Hi all, I picked up a number of epiphytic Utrics and a Heli. pulchella last year, and they grew well until my terrarium got way too hot over the summer. I feel good about growing them and have a solution to the summer heat now, so I'd like to pick up a few more to play around with. I have a...
