    Finally purchased a Reducta, hectioides and a Berteroniana...

    :-D I hated to take a chance on buying these alleged Carnivores from Europe but took the gamble and won. They got here in 6 days... bought seeds months and months ago of Regia from an eBay Seller in Great Britian and it took 3 months to arrive and the Seller mailed them immediately upon closing...

    Apollonian's Indoor Collection

    This is where I'll post about my indoor collection. I decided to be so public with it because I am very serious about making it better (all within means of course!). I recently lost a great many of my older plants, though a few decade + ones survived my year off at university. As I plan on...

    June 2014 NECPS Meeting at UCONN and Bog Walk in CT

    This past Saturday we had one of our most interesting meetings to date. Mat Opel was kind enough to host our June meeting at the UCONN greenhouses which he oversees and maintains. Here are some pitiful pics of a small part of their collection. Greeting you right at the door of the Life Sciences...

    Drosera regia Giveaway (for postage) US only

    I'm paying forward a giveaway the Pyro did years ago. I expect the winners to do the same when the time comes. Plants have leaves about 2.5-3.5 inches long and are well rooted. They should fit in a small flat rate box but I may determine it safer to use a larger box so shipping will be $5.35 to...

    Regia Recovery

    Hi all I received a D. Regia in the post a few weeks ago and it got really damaged by the courier company :-( I potted the plant and stuck it in my Terrarium to try and boost the recovery process.. It's loving the new environment! :banana2:

    D. regia seeds

    I just scored these from the seed bank. They were shipped today. I have not had a TON of experience with germinating drosera. I have done sessifolia capensis and probably more (I just haven't been growing carnivores long enough to germinate a ton of seeds. I have germinated some either...

    Osmocote in pitchers?

    Since i grow all my neps indoors, I usually squirt a bit of diluted fertilizer inside the pitchers when I feed with maxsea or growmore orchid fertilizer. I was wondering if anyone has tried dropping a pellet of Osmocote in the pitchers and what were the results? Positive/negative in plant...

    Battered Drosera regia

    To make a long story short, I was idiotically running around today with a Drosera regia in my backpack, and it tipped over multiple times and was pretty beat up. When I stopped I scooped what soil I could back into the pot and left it in my sealed backpack for five hours so it wouldn't dry out...

    Why hasn't the D. Regia x Dionaea hybrid been attempted again?

    I'm just curious :( Is it cause Regia is still too hard to grow in general or is there just lack of interest? I would have really thought someone would have pulled it off by now even if the resulting seed isn't fertile.

    Drosera regia cuttings in water

    Has anyone ever tried starting Drosera regia cuttings in water? John Brittnacher says it might be possible but I haven't found much information about it on the web. Do you think it would be possible? There are a few leaves on my regia that probably got shocked during shipping and lost their dew...
