    Hello from Southern California!

    Hi all, I've been a very long time lurker finally decided to make an account. I've been keeping Drosera, Sarrs, and VFTs for a few years now but within the last year decided to get serious with some rarer species, Nepenthes, and now I'm venturing into tissue culture. I love the information and...

    Heliamphora Damage

    My H. Nutans Giant was recently chewed over by a grasshopper, and now has become so stressed that two of it's growth points died (to be fair the grasshopper did serious damage). I'm not really sure what to do for the plant at the moment, as I've never seen it so stressed out. I've attached some...

    "You don't want to be there!"

    This Darlingtonia stolon had decided that the corner of the tray was as good place to take up residence. Unfortunately that selected corner is against the door frame of the Darlingtonia House so new larger pitchers were in serious danger of damage. Contrary to my usual procedure, which would be...

    Young crooked saguaro

    I have a young saguaro about 7 1/2 inches tall and about 4 1/2 inches across at its widest point. The cactus is currently leaning in its pot and I know that it can be a serious problem with older saguaros because it causes them to fall over. What do you think the best way to straighten it is...

    CP-safe emulsifier for neem oil solution (aphid busting)

    I'm developing a fairly serious aphid problem in a few of my trays (Drosera mostly at this point), and want to try a topical application of Neem oil per this article on Grow Sundews. However, I'm having trouble getting the neem oil to emulsify. The label suggests using 2 tsp of dish soap per...

    Sideshow Turtles

    SIDESHOW TURTLES I love the unusual, and a couple of years ago I bought a group of strange hatchling Red Eared Sliders. They are now 2 years and 3 months old (and over 4 inches). They are natural deformities that I’ve raised up past the sensitive stage. Now they are available to you! They...

    The irresistible appeal of Sundews

    Now that I'm actively working to restore my CP collection, I'm giving serious thought, as to which Drosera to include first, in my newly regrowing collection. Of course, I've already started with Drosera regia 'Big Easy', Drosera schizandra, Drosera prolifera, and Drosera adelae. Through the...

    My Office Growing Setup

    After graduating college and taking a full-time job recently, I decided to get serious about growing plants again! My office has way more desk space than I need, so I figured I would start a little grow op! For lighting, I chose a 4-bulb, 2ft T5HO fixture from Apollo Horticulture. It comes with...

    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...

    Something seems wrong with my Sarracenia, please help!

    If you can see the photo, there is some serious discoloration. This leaf specifically is the worst off, but all of them have this problem. I cannot for the life of me figure out what is wrong. Today I cut off all the dead leaves and flushed out the soil with pure water to get out anything that...

    Hello from New York City!

    Hello! I've always been an orchid aficionado, and started growing them in earnest up here in NYC about 8 months ago. The Orchid Board led me here, and I've been buying CPs over the past month or so. Of course I had my odd Venus Flytrap sold in a little plastic box when I was a kid, but like...

    Looking for trades to expand a teaching CP collection

    Hi everyone! I would love to begin doing some plant trades in order to benefit my workplace and obtain a more complete and interesting collection of CPs. Because my teaching greenhouses aren't specifically specialized in CPs, there are significant holes in our collection and many genera are...
