    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...

    Darlingtonia Conservation

    Hello, While this is not a major emergency call to arms type of post, I hope that it will still generate a response out of this community. I am looking to start a non-profit centered around the conservation of Darlingtonia. While this genus is not particularly at a high risk of dissappearing...

    Nepenthes Seed Sowing

    Sow (pun intended), i've sewn and germinated nepenthes a nubmer of the times i nthe past, to mixed success. I've done two main methods, one being sown in ziploc bags or humidity domes on pure LFS, the other being a peat/sand mix. My main problem in the past has been algae and/or fungus...

    Larvae in water trays - ID please

    I had some of these last year and dumped the tray out to get rid of them. This year I thought I'd try to figure out what they are. They definitely don't look like mosquito larvae and seem too thin and long to be fungus gnats. They just appeared suddenly over the past week and wiggle around on...

    Fungus Gnat Pest Control

    Fungus gnats help with feeding my carnivorous plants, but their larvae have become a problem in one bowl. Can carnivorous plants handle cinnamon in their soil? I have read that it helps control fungus gnats when added to the soil surface. Yes, I have read about various chemical, bacterial, and...

    Cephalotus "Hummer's" divisions for other Ceph cultivars/genetic stock (or Heli's?) Hi guys, I have a few Cephalotus crown divisions up for trade, one of which has a flower stalk. I bought the mother plant maybe 5-6 years ago as a Hummer's Giant crown division from an eBay seller in Alaska...

    Fungal fruiting body

    A photo of the fruiting bodies of a fungus that's in quite few of my pots. The 'mushrooms' appear around this time annually. Any ideas? Is it beneficial?

    Water filtration in greenhouse

    My school's greenhouses have a lot of fungus gnats flying around, which damage many seedlings and plants that my classmates and I are propagating. So I'm thinking of putting a couple pots of sarracenia in there (although I'm a bit nervous if someone take them since I only have one of each kind)...

    Please help identifying an issue with a dying Cephalotus

    I am currently having trouble keeping my cephalotus alive, and I was hoping someone could help me identify the issue. I believe it may be fungus but I am not sure.

    Saw my Scorpioides snag a gnat out of midair

    I was admiring my desktop scorpioides today when I saw a fungus gnat zoom by and slam right into the longest, tallest tentacle! It was like watching an NHL goalie make a glove save on slap shot! I pulled out my phone and took some crummy pics through a magnifier: He's currently thrashing...

    Old leaf tip turning tar black?

    I've had this ventricosa for almost a year now, and it's been doing great. Two lower leaves are yellowing, and I first thought it was just age. A few days ago, however, I noticed that the oldest leaf has a very dark tip to it, as if someone covered it with charcoal dust. All the other leaves...

    Bog Sarr Die Off
