    D. schizandra 'Andromeda' not looking great

    Hi all, I'm pretty experienced with Drosera but this one has me puzzled. I receiving a young "Andromeda" from a friend so I quickly put it in some peat and in my terrarium. High intensity LEDs, 90%+ RH, and around 78-80 degrees. The color wasn't looking too good and the existing leaves weren't...

    Mike's Highland Terrarium

    My addiction has returned. After quitting CP's (and plants in general) a few years back to put more effort into my other hobby, fish tanks, I decided a few months back that I wanted to get back into CP's (nepenthes in particular) and I've slowly been rebuilding my collection since. The main...

    Sarracenia bulb sprouting?

    I got a kit with a VFT and a Sarracenia bulb in it about a month back. The FVT I potted up and now is on my indoor porch for the winter. However I've been trying to grow the bulb indoors for the winter with very little luck. To day I checked on it and it seems to be sprouting or the moss got...

    Nep lights timing

    Anyone have any experience with growing Neps under lights during the nighttime? Electricity prices are cheaper at night so it's more economical to run your grow lights then instead of during the day time. I wanted to run my lights 13 hours on/11 hours off from 8pm-9am or something similar, but I...

    Anybody know anything about Nepenthes pitopangii?

    This species is very new in cultivation, so there isn't much information I've been able to find about it. It seems to be considered an intermediate grower in most places, but the type specimen was found at 1800m, and the second population at 1400m, so it seems like it could be a...

    Sick Drosera (with photo)

    As you can see, my plant babe didn't take the transition to dorm life very well. I didn't notice until after it had declined that it wasn't getting enough sun from the window I set it up in front of -- when I was back home, though, it was thriving. I have since bought a humidifer for it and a...
