    What are these spots on my oncidium's leaf?

    To me it looks like fungus which would make sense since it's been very humid around here lately Sent from my SM-T715 using Tapatalk

    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 rotundifolia help - root rot?

    Hello, I managed to grow a few Drosera rotundifolia plants from seed. They've been doing nicely outside under sheltered sunlight since their sowing (I'm in temperate zone so climate fits their needs), never kept them inside a dome (so that I wouldn't have to worry about mold) but always used...

    Beginner's Pictorial Guide to Drosera Leaf, Root, and Scape Cutting Chapter #1

    Most Drosera can be easily and quickly propagated by leaf cutting, root cuttings, and flower scape cuttings. (A flower scape is just another words for the developing unfurling flower stalk as it emerges from your plant.) This will give you a mature plant faster than raising one from seed...

    Pest ID

    Hey guys, I was hoping you could help me ID these pests from my horrible pictures. I've had fungus gnats for a while and I associated these buggers with them but I wanted to make sure. I'm germinating my first nep seeds and I want to keep them as safe as possible. I can try to get better pics...

    Seed disaster

    So last long weekend I decided to plant a whole bunch of seeds, mixed sundews including capes, tokaiensis, aliciae, omissa, burmannii, filiformis, dreamsicle, some vft seeds and utricularia as well. Today I was inspecting each pot individually and I noticed on the vft seeds at the very tip of...

    Treatment for mold on Roridula

    As it turns out, leaving a Roridula out in constant rain may not be the best idea - my plant has mold growing on some of the leaves now, especially in the cluster of new leaves at the growth point. I don't really have any experience dealing with fungus, does anyone have a suggestion?

    Drosera dormancy

    I keep several pots of carnivorous plants in the growth chambers at work to trap fungus gnats. They do a decent job of keeping the population in check and reduce the need for pesticides. Anyways, I checked in on the plants today and saw that the Drosera filiformis had gone dormant. This was a...

    Overwintering Sarracenia Bare-root

    The dreaded season has returned, and I need to allocate the sarrs into the fridge before they freeze solid. However, this year im going to be fighting for space, so the sarrs will be bare rooted. What is the best way to do this without shocking them, exposing them to fungus, or letting them dry out?

    Nepenthes Ampullaria Pitcher Discoloration

    My nepenthes ampullaria pitchers seem to have some sort of discoloration issue. On all of the pitchers but one it looks almost as if something had chewed on it removing a layer of cells, it's hard to describe. I don't know if its physical ( if something actually ate the pitchers) or chemical (...

    Anyone investigated Nicotania?

    I was at someone's house a few days ago and noticed a large plant with flowers that looked nightshade related. I was told the plant is Nicotania. It had several large sticky leaves with a lot of fungus gnats stuck to them. The leaves were sticky but not mucilaginous like a sundew. Has anyone...

    Beist there a fungus among us?

    So these white filiaments appeared on my U. dichotoma's flower stalk last week (and yes I'm just now getting around to posting about it). There are actually two patches of said filaments. Both completely encircle the segment of stalk occupied. The larger mass -- shown here as seen through a...

    Fungus gnat larvae eating my live sphag

    Sorry for a second post on pests but I rather get rid of them then regret not doing anything. I have a small 2.5 gallon tank with my nepenthes ampullaria and my utricularia longifolia and apparently fungus gnat larvae are snacking on my live sphag. Usually I have no problem with fungus gnats...

    What will come now? Plantwise that is.

    In May of 2007 I had major cervical spine surgery. During my recovery my having a few sundews among the orchids to control fungus gnats developed into a full fledged interest in CPs. As a get well gift my family put in a half whiskey barrel bog where I could sit on the front porch and watch...

    Stelis argentata division giveaway

    I finally mustered up the courage to tame the beast that was my Stelis argentata. I divided it into two nice clumps, but I only have room for one, so I'm offering the other here as a giveaway. This one makes pinkish-gray flowers. S. argentata is one of the easier Pleurothallids: forgiving of...
