    Dyna-Gro Foliage Pro 9-3-6 Fertilizer

    I have a bottle of Dyna-Gro Foliage Pro 9-3-6 Fertilizer that I use for "regular" plants potted in inorganic potting mixes. I was thinking that it would be a good candidate for fertilizing my Heliamphora, both in terms of soil drenching and foliar spray. Foliage Pro is lauded in some plant...

    Bog Trip - Southern New Hampshire - August, 2014

    This weekend we visited an Atlantic white cedar bog in Southern NH. This location sits in a depression right smack in the middle of suburbia. The area is under threat of disappearing due to the encroaching red maples and grey birches that are invading the bog at an alarming rate. The trees have...

    Macleania chlorosis

    I grow three neotropical blueberries: macleania pentaptera, macleania glabra, and disterigma rimbachii. For the past few months, the m. glabra's leaves have been looking a little chlorotic. New growth looks healthy, flushed with pink, but soon begins to yellow. Otherwise, it grows steadily. Like...

    D. binata issue

    The developing tips of the leaves have been dying off. Not sure what the issue is. Plant did well for me last summer and even all winter long. Actually bloomed for me over the winter. It is located in front of an unobstructed SE exposure sliding glass doors. Last summer I did have it...

    Water Tray Maintenance

    Hi Folks, As some of you may know I got my first CP's in April and they're doing fairly well. Plenty of light, water, good temps and decent humidity. I use the water tray method and had quite a shock this morning... I've done a lot of research and most places I've found say "clean the water...

    Osmocote in pitchers?

    Since i grow all my neps indoors, I usually squirt a bit of diluted fertilizer inside the pitchers when I feed with maxsea or growmore orchid fertilizer. I was wondering if anyone has tried dropping a pellet of Osmocote in the pitchers and what were the results? Positive/negative in plant...

    My Biolapse Thread.

    Hello Folks! My name is Chris, and I am a timelapse photographer. Rather than going for the iconic tortured tree in front of a starfield my interests have turned towards plants and studio work. I wanted to start this thread to document my progress, and hopefully get some tips on how to get...

    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...

    Sarracenia for trade

    I love misidentified seeds as much as the next person ((( sarcasm ))). However, the seeds I got from a well known online vendor in the UK that were suppose to be of Sarracenia venosa "Green" ended up being Sarracenia "Not venosa Green". I am offering it here for trade. Below is a list of plants...

    Lawns and Grass (pH adjustment of soil?)

    I figure there's several intelligent people here that might be able to help me out without registering for a multitude of other forums to try and get some insight and suggestions. ;) We used Virginia Tech's soil lab to get a test done on our lawn as it's "Patchy" with a "spring Mix" to put...

    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...

    Coffee and Nepenthes

    I don't know who here has ever tried it but over a month ago I gave several different Nepenthes plants a single watering of straight black coffee I brewed in my regular coffee maker. The coffee "treatment" made a huge difference on every species I tried it on (rafflesiana, mirabilis var...

    Going all-out to germinate some Drosophyllum

    Hi guys! I just received some seeds from John Brittnacher over at the ICPS, one of which is a packet of Drosophyllum. I have literally spent almost 10 solid hours over the weekend reading every last scrap of forum conversation about its germination, the ICPS grow guides, and every word written...

    Cattleya & Brassavola Fertilizer

    Yes, indeed, it appears that the One with the Uncreative Name has fallen under the spell of orchidelirium. I just picked up some Cattleya and Brassavola. I'm currently researching how to grow them and have just about all my care information secured, except I am unsure about fertilizer, since...

    "Revised" Savage Garden

    Apologies if this has been brought up in discussion before as I haven't been to the site in a while. But I'm curious if anyone has picked up a copy of the newly published Savage Garden and whether it's worth the "upgrade" in literature. Apparently it was put out July 2nd, and I only found out...

    Orchid 30-10-10 = Smaller pitchers?

    Hey everybody, I've been using a Miracle-Gro brand orchid fertilizer on my plants for a few months and the results seem a bit dubious. I diluted the fert to approx 1/4 strength and have been using it every 2 weeks as a foliar feed and a little bit through the soil. I'm wondering if anyone has...
