    Lots of New Flytraps to Love!

    Yesterday I finally received my online order of CPs, which was super exciting since there is not much available locally. I did a joint order with my Aunty and also purchased a few plants for my Nana who is super keen to make a mini bog garden of her own. Waiting for Australia post really does...

    Refrigerator Dormancy Necessary for my Flytraps?

    This year I planted my first CP bog terrarium in many years, and I've been really pleased with the results. I wasn't terribly confident based on all the warnings you find online regarding the suitability of CPs for terrarium life, but after a little experimentation with lighting and the level of...

    WTB: Looking for Venus Flytrap expansion pack!

    WTB: Looking for Venus Flytrap expansion pack! Sadly I don't have many varieties of flytraps and I would like to fix that. I don't really want to pick up one flytrap here and one there, I would rather do... maybe a minimum of 4, but I could definitely take a much larger selection if you have...

    Help! why did one of my regia died?

    I'm not sure why the big one died while the little one is still alive? Could it be a lack of food? I notice they catch some insects but not a lot. They have to compete amongst flytraps, sarracenias, and other drosera for food. Thanks!

    Trade: Nepenthes for Venus Flytraps

    I have a beautiful Nep for trade. I got it from one of our Terraforums members a while ago, and it's getting too big for my little space. It is a complex cross: N. (maxima x ?) x (fusca x ?) . Right now, it produces pitchers that are about 2 inches in size, but each leaf gets bigger and...

    Is it time to repot my Sarracenia?

    Hi, I'm pretty new here! I bought a bag of soil, and i have dried Sphagnum moss, not live but blocks that swell as crazy when i wet them. I'm thinking, my Sarracenia which i have had for about 4 weeks seems to be a bit big for it's pot. Is it ok, or should i repot it into a bigger one, i...

    Sphagnum moss grows too tall.

    All the sphagnum in my bog keeps trying to eat my venus flytraps and sundews. The Sarrs and orchids are too tall for it, but everything else seems to be fair game. There's also a lot of bladderworts that got there somehow, and I'm really worried about them because they're really short as far as...
