    Field Trip: The South!

    Trip report time! I went on a trip led by the ever adventurous Ozzy, with a couple of the other NASC members (Ozzy being the serving NASC Prez!). We all met up in Alabama, and started the trip with a few S.alata sites in Southeast Mississippi and worked our way East through Southern Alabama...

    N. copelandii 'Apo' in lowland conditions

    Hi all, Quite by surprise I received a n. copelandii 'Apo' today in the mail. Reading about it, I understand it's a highland plant, or maybe intermediate. BE identifies it as highland, but easy to grow as a low lander. I'd be really excited about the free plant, except that I can only grow...

    Revitalize a hanging basket

    Hi all, Got my first nep Jan 2015, and hung it in a tree in south Florida. It was three six inch tall plants, ventrata, and it's now six or ten plants, the leader vining out to about eight feet long. The tree has pitchers hanging all over. I love it. But it's in one of those tiny hanging...

    Sarracenia Question!

    Hey everybody that actually reads this! I've collected orchids for a while and within the last year and a half have been collecting CPs. I saw some sarracenia minor in situ and fell in love with them. Before long I had a decent collection but gravitated to nepenthes mostly only in the last 6...

    Nepenthes maxima indoors or outdoors?

    I just received a nepenthes maxima and I'm wondering if I should put it indoors or outside. If indoors it would have to be put on a western window with filtered light (because of the shutters). Outside it would get more humidity and temperatures from 60-90 F, but would receive direct afternoon...

    Evaporative Cooling.

    Ok, I need some critiquing of my thought process here. I know that evaporative cooling (swamp cooler) needs low humidity to reduce the temperature; that it can only reduce the air to the wet bulb temperature, which is a deviation of the current temperature and humidity. For example, areas with...

    Bical Rescue

    Hi all, Got this bical almost four months ago. It was in a peaty mix, bone dry, with almost no roots and half of the leaves cracked at the stem. No pitchers. It's slowly recovering, I think. It's outside in south Florida, 50 to 90F, pure LFS, one hour of morning sun followed by bright shade...

    Mounting nepenthes

    Hey everyone that reads this. Ok so I know that there are some species of nepenthes, like veitchii, that are epiphytes and grow mounted their entire lives. That being said I think I've seen only one or two in cultivation that grow mounted. I'm curious of why that is. Is it hard? Is it a humidity...

    Cephalotus leaf yellowing

    Hi all, I got this ceph about two and a half months ago. It lives outside in south Florida in part shade. Temps range from 45 to 90F, and lately no lower than the mid sixties. It gets two hours of sun in its current position. I was originally told that it was 'recently' (whatever that means)...

    Looking for low land nepenthes

    Hello all, I am looking for lowland/ultra lowland nepenthes. My greenhouse here in Florida seems to be perfect for them. I have many plants from carnivorous plants and orchids. Message me if you have some and I'm sure we can work something out. Thanks everyone. -alex

    Trip out to Salton Sea and Mud Pots

    I was just out in Florida for a scuba diving trip, but since it's not CP time of the year on the East Coast yet, I still had some wandering through the field left in me that I didn't get a chance to get out there. Luckily, a buddy and I here in San Diego decided to get out of town and head out...

    Coming out of refrigerator dormancy

    Hi all, I've got a few bags of sundews, sarricenia, and pings that are about ready to come out of the fridge. I put them in bare root, and seemed to have not had any fungal problems. Any advice on bring them out? Do I need to acclimate them gradually to outside temperature or full sun? They...
