    Dactylorhiza maculata

    This is a self set survivor of my original collection of Dactylorhiza maculata. It settled itself into a Hosta tub and hasn't looked back.The clone is now multi-headed and a bit of a favourite of MrsG. Please forgive the size of the photo but I really thought it deserved it for the detail...

    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...

    Hail storm damage!

    We had a huge hail and thunderstorm roll through last night with some pretty good-sized hail. Thankfully I got the vulnerable pots (freshly potted stuff) under cover before it hit, but the bog I can't exactly move out of the way, haha. Fortunately not that many sarrs have open pitchers yet, but...

    Yes this question does get asked often. Local nursery owner informed me that there were changes on the Peat Moss extraction/distribution market and the brand I used to get is not currently available. I tried several brands and generally found that whatever is sold in Lowes or HD (Premier or...

    Nimbulan's picture thread

    I suppose it's about time so I'll start with some recent pictures. Quite a few actually. Plants waking up outdoors. Some native Oregon sphagnum I'm growing with the outdoor plants, covered with netting to discourage those pesky birds. My crazy S. "Daina's Delight" growing more than 100...

    3D printer users

    I don't have a 3D printer and I am hoping to find someone that does. And furthermore hoping some one will be willing to make a few orchid pots for me. I am looking for small pots in the 2x2x2 inch range. Willing to trade plants in exchange. I figured it worth a shot.

    Hey, everyone. I have questions about the Maxsea fertilizer. I had heard about it on this site. I know I hadn't see it at my local stores, so I went to my trusty amazon.com account and found a 1.5lb container of the 16-16-16 for $19.98 and free shipping. I don't know if that's a deal, but it...

    LED or T5 fluorescents strong enough for tall Sarracenia species?

    I have various species of Sarracenia, vfts, dews, and pings growing under the same LED light. I am worried that the LED light does not have enough blue and white for vegetative growth. The plants are in a mini greenhouse outside with the plants and the lamp is about 25 inches above the top of...

    U. calycifida monster

    So I decided to move my U. calycifida 'Asenath Waite' since it has been unhappy with the higher light levels since replacing the bulbs in my T5 fixture. I knew it had grown out into the water tray but I had no idea how much. I had to lift up 3 other pots to pull out this thick mat of bladders.
