    Ceph advice

    This is how I've been growing this plant that I got at the 2013 NECPS show. I noticed it had a white cottony thing on it and i immediately pulled it off and squashed it without finding out what it was. Here is what was left. It went from the leaf to the pitcher. Any ideas what I might be...

    Return to Cps with a mechanical fix job. + permission needed from TF members

    Hi guys, Lets address it point by point: 1) I have been off the grid for a long while. Haven't been around any forums for over 6-8 months. Same old story...plants going downhill and loosing interest. But recently, I got a call from my local hamilton RBG to give a 1h+ talk on carnivorous plants...

    So, I decided to take some new pics of plants that were looking good, so here are some sticky things from my greenhouse :D : D. rotundifolia: started out as only 5 plants, now they've multiplied and packed each other in D. capillaris FL x intermedia: sent to me as pure capillaris, but the...

    What is effecting my Nepenthes?

    Here is a picture of a healthy leaf (left) in comparison to the effected leaf (right) which i have cut off. All new growth is looking like the deformed leaf. The deformed leaves still make perfect pitchers though. I have seen no bugs (besides fungus gnats) and i check every other day. Anyone...

    Death to Fungus Gnats

    Hi guys, I'm having a lot of trouble with fungus gnats in my 30 gal setup. How do you get rid of them?!?!?? I've found hundreds in my pitchers. It's really getting out of hand.

    Sarracenia xFormosa tip death

    So, the story: I got S. xFormosa and S. purpurea ssp purpurea x courtii in winter this year (June-ish) by mail order. They arrived in fairly good condition and dormant. I potted them and sat them in a north facing window. Formosa went off like a rocket and was visibly growing every day. The...

    U. longifolia fungus

    I recently got some U. longifolia but there seems to be a bit of white, fuzzy fungus developing along the surface of the media. It's currently planted in some LFS, although it came with peat around the roots. Temp ranges from 68-80F depending on the time of the day. Humidity usually 50-70%. I...

    Maybe Fungus question?

    Hola! :) I have this one pot with a vtf and a few sarr seedlings and the surface of the soil has slowly been covered by this stuff. Doesn't seem to be harmful yet but am a little worried about winter. Any thoughts ?

    In vitro shoot tip culture of N. campanulata

    Here's the result so far of my recent attempt at propagating N. campanulata by culturing the shoot tips in vitro. I used small basal shoots as explant source and referred to these links for disinfection methods: http://icps.proboards.com/thread/4891...

    Wassup from NYC!

    Yo! I've been lurking this site for a while and now seems to be the best time to join. I've been growing sarracenia outdoors for about four years now. It all started with a S. flava and a Dionaea 'Akai Ryu'. Unfortunately my newbie mistakes during dormancy killed my first group of plants. The...

    Springtail infestation or...?

    Recently I've noticed a dense population of tiny white critters crawling around in some of my VFT pots. Not on the plants themselves just the pots. I am not detecting any leaf damage as of yet on any of my plants but the population of these things has exploded lately. They are not fungus gnat...

This list is meant to be pretty general and is perhaps USA centric...

    Fungus on Nep seeds

    Hello everyone. This is my first try at nep seeds. I just got back from a weekend in Florida and started looking around my shelf. At first glance I thought they were germinating, but a closer look reveals it is indeed a fungus of some sort. Sorry for the blurry pic, I'm just showing the...

    Fighting fungus for high-humidity sundews

    I have a terrarium that I'm keeping my Adelae in. The humidity is around 70% at all times (I also have some Neps in the terrarium). Whenever I feed the Adelae, however, the food will eventually turn into fungus on the leaves and burn the leaves a bit. I use freeze dried bloodworms. Is the...
