    Drosera finlaysoniana update

    I borrowed my wife's cute pink ruler and measured how tall my Drosera finlaysoniana has become. The bottom of the ruler is resting on the soil surface. I tried to get the camera as level as possible to prevent perspective distortion. The plants are taller than 11 inches now. If you measure how...

    Nepenthes cuttings

    1. I have about a dozen or so cuttings of my Nepenthes "graciliflora" (the "smooth alata") available for trade. This is a very easy and vigorous species that can grow as a lowlander and highlander, although it seems to be pretty scarce in the trade right now. I have unrooted 2- and 4-node...

    P. chilensis

    Here is a photo of my P. chilensis. You can see some seedlings, that are likely from a seed pod which I forgot to harvest. One of the amazing traits of this plant is that it is completely autogamous! The flowers of P. chilensis are very short, the stalk can be sessile like mine, or a few cm...

    Drosera Hybridization, My First Attempt

    I attempted to hybridize Drosera capensis "Typical" and Drosera aliciae this morning. This is my first effort at creating a hybrid. I waited until flowers from both plants were wide open. Then I took some tiny cuticle scissors and cut off one of the anthers from the D. aliciae flower. The...

    Digitalis laevigata

    I like to grow plants that are beneficial to bees, hoverflies etc. This is one of them. I grew them on in pots until the spring and planted them out in the garden. I thought I'd lost them to the slugs and snails, which have been particularly voracious this year, but MrsG pointed them out this...

    P. lusitanica

    Found these P. lusitanica sprouting this year in a pot of Calopogon and a pot of sarracenia generously given to me last year on my way back from California, cute little things. They were not there when I brought the pots home last year, so assuming they sprouted this spring from seed that were...

    Unknown Sarr's

    Hi i was wondering if anyone had any guesses as to what varieties these are, I don't plan on labeling them, I'm just curious. The first one obviously has some Leucophylla influence, possibly Tarnok, although I won't know until it flowers. The second one I'm thinking is some sort of Rubra...

    Calopogon tuberosus

    The slugs and snails (were) kept away from these Calopogon tuberosus this year, so I have a decent display. A very easy orchid to grow if the preceding comment can be maintained. They're in a Sarracenia mixture in a Sarracenia lagoon and that's it. If you notice any difference in the flowers...

    Tillandsia seed germination.

    I took a trip to a nearby nursery today and found several tillandsia forming flower stalks :-O I took one home of course. Hopefully the flower will produce seed. What is the best way to pollinate tillandsia flowers and germinate their seeds?

    Cold hardy cactus for trade

    I gave away my carnivorous collection 4 years ago when I moved to Utah and now it is time to start rebuilding. I don't have a lot to trade but I do have a bunch of cuttings from cold hardy cactus from Central Utah. They are Optunia sp., not sure exactly which as they are likely hybrids. I...

    Two of my favorites!

    Hey guys! I've always loved the slipper orchids and the long petaled Phragmepediums have been among my favorites. I'm lucky enough to have these two wonderful species in bloom for a little comparison! First, probably the most well known species. Phrag. caudatum, I have been through several...

    Is it neccessary to stake sarracenia?

    Hey everyone, 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...
