    Orchids I have blooming now

    Here are some orchids I have blooming now. I have been growing orchids now for about 5 years. They are what got me into CP's when I was looking for a non-chemical way to help control fungus gnats with my seedlings. Pict 1 - Psychopsis hybrid (NoID) - this actually has 2 blooms and another bud...

    Is there an emulsifiable type of fungicide?

    Is there an emulsifiable type of fungicide (powder or liquid) that can simply be mixed with water for watering regular houseplants? Or even with carnivorous plants? Something that can treat the soil is what I am seeking... without stressing out the plant. I am so tired of seeing fungus and...

    Insect living in peat moss - what is it?

    Hi Peeps, We have a thread on the local gardening forum debating what actually is the insect living in peat moss. It is not a mealy bug and smaller than the whitefly. Some think it is a fungus gnat. It is only about 1/10" in size. I see lots of them in my seed boxes where I sow my Nepenthes...

    Orange fungus on Truncata?

    I got a truncata about a week ago and when it came it was red and greenish color. Then the pitcher and some of its leaves started getting faded rusty orange spots on it and i have no idea what it is. I thought it was fungus but outside where its pot sits is in direct light and i haven't watered...

    What is this!?

    I have no idea where to put it so I guess it should go here. Sorry, I don't have a pic yet, but I'm getting weird stuff. I believe it might be fungus gnats, but I'm not sure. There's dense web-like substance in pots, but only in small areas. Then, what I believe are eggs of something, are little...

    The Good, the Bad and the Ugly...Ceph question

    I just took a look a few days ago at my beloved Cephalotus. It is two large clumps of Hummer's Giant with multiple crowns. I am in awe of it. One pitcher is about 2.5 inches tall and others are close. The good. I was shocked to see a flower scape! It never occurred to me it would ever...

    Bleeding Hamata?

    OK, so it's not exactly bleeding, but it is excreting a sticky liquid from the underside of the leaves...it's almost a clear/white color. Not only that, the leaves seem to be a light green, and it has stopped pitchering...again. It seems healthy and it making much larger leaves than what it...

    HELP!! Sphagnum fungus...

    Much to my horror, I found this growing in one of my sphagnum trays. Any sure fire remidies to kill the fungus and not the sphagnum? (I'm assuming it's fungus) Tom
