    My name is Morgane, I'm 23 and I started growing carnivorous (and other) plants since last August. I already liked plants before, but the fact that I lived in a north oriented student room with a tiny window kept me from growing anything else than a bonsai. Now I live in a south-west oriented...

    Flytrap in UltraHD if you got the screen for it

    Hi, Bought me a UltraHD capable camera before Christmas. If you have a monitor that can show UltraHD it kinda look pretty cool if I may say so myself. It works on any monitor but to get that super sharpness you need the extra pixels! Going to film a lot of feeding I'm the future! :)

    Introducing Riverside Carnivores!

    A garden requires patient labor and attention. Plants do not grow merely to satisfy ambitions or to fulfill good intensions. They thrive because someone expended effort on them. I have been growing carnivorous plants since 2013. My goal is to one day obtain a carnivorous plant garden with a...
