    Nepenthes & hydroponics: Preliminary results.

    I've been experimenting with growing Nepenthes hydroponically since March 2015, so for about a year and a half now. I'd like to share my results in this thread, and then give some details about my method. Thanks to TF member knuckles for sharing with me his experiences growing Nepenthes...

    Questions about Maxsea fertilizer

    Hey, everyone. I have questions about the Maxsea fertilizer. I had heard about it on this site. I know I hadn't see it at my local stores, so I went to my trusty amazon.com account and found a 1.5lb container of the 16-16-16 for $19.98 and free shipping. I don't know if that's a deal, but it...

    *PAID* Disterigma rimbachii (goods $15)

    Up for auction is a small Disterigma rimbachii, from a cutting. This is a neotropical blueberry that grows well with Nepenthes and seems to be pretty warmth-tolerant. It makes small pink flowers, though I haven't figured out how to get it to bloom. Otherwise, easy to grow. Grow in a light...

    Matt V's photo thread!

    Just wanted to share some photos of my neps and their progression. I grow my plants under LEDs. The problem I struggle most with is low humidity but it seems like really bright light helps harden my plants and sphagnum (resist drought). Ive built a second grow box to house larger plants though...

    Fertilizing Drosera

    I guess I use to much fertilizer, but I always get negative results when I fertilize my Drosera. I was using a 150ppm urea-free orchid fertilizer sprayed on the leaves, but it resulted in deformed leaves. I recently tried some beta pellets, but that appears to have been a bit much as well. Is...

    Tillandsia watering

    I just bought some air plants for the first time and have been having a lot of trouble determining how often I should water them. It seems like every air plant store has completely different guidelines for how often to submerge them, from once a week to once a month, how often to mist them, and...

    Nepenthes Osmocote Fertilizing

    I heard that some people fertilize their nepenthes by using osmocote. I tried doing some research on this topic and found out that people who have used it with great success, never mention the exact kind they used. Did they used the one with a NPK Analysis of 15-9-12 or 19-6-12, or 14-14-14 ...

    Foliar fertilizing ferns (when grown as cp companions)

    Hello everyone. I recently received some Cinnamon ferns (Osmunda cinnamomea). My goal is to grow them as long-term companion plants with my flyraps, sarracenia, and temperate sundews. I didn't just randomly choose any fern, I had cinnamon fern recommended once as a companion plant for cp's...

    Impurities in greenhouse watering system

    I keep my carnivorous plants in some spare space in a propagation greenhouse at the University I attend. The plants are all watered (by the greenhouse manager) through a fertigation system which delivers water soluble fertilizer through the irrigation system. My plants are on one of the "Do Not...

    Scraggly Ghost Pepper Plant

    So I came to my parents house this weekend to see a ghost pepper plant I over wintered isn't doing so hot outside. It has numerous long branches it sprouted this year, but they only seems to grow a small bush of wimpy leaves on the end of the branch. They were fertilized at the beginning of...

    Mounted Orchids and VFT 'Maroon Monster'... open for trades!

    I am very fond of the plants I am listing here, but I have multiples of them all and would like to diversify my collection. First: the orchids. I do not know how much interest there will be in these, but I know there is some overlap in interest. The first is a Cattleya hybrid, but...

    Hey from southern Virginia!

    Hi! I just joined this weekend. I'm very new to carnivorous plants, but my journey with them started years ago. I have a koi pond, and while shopping for bog plants years ago I discovered this crazy looking thing labeled "pitcher plant." The only thing the label said was keep moist and give lots...

(I have so many questions. :p) Can I fertilize my Venus Flytrap (in any way, shape, or form), and if so, with what? You see, my lovely typical Venus flytrap...

    I've been really taken back by my Ventricosa lately, normally confined to the less than desirable areas of my yard, about 6 months ago I decided to repot to a 20 gallon, fertilize, give it a big cage to climb on, and position it w lots of sun. Well, it absolutely loved the new conditions and...

    Fertilizing Nep Seedlings

    So I have been told by a few people that it might be a good idea to fertilize my few month old nepenthes seedlings currently growing in coco coir. My local hydroponics store had http://www.ageoldorganic.com/20/age-old-kelp-3-25-15/ as their best reccomendation, mainly just nitrogen and...
