I have 3 Amorphophallus konjac bulbs up for trade. One is a fatty, the other two are young, but growing. I got the big one a while ago from DragonsEye (so you know they are the real deal) and the small ones came off the fatty. They have not flowered for me yet, but the big one should flower...
Simple question, and I'm just fishing here, seeing what the response will be like.
I finally have decent-enough internet that I can start thinking about playing online again, but most established game communities are so toxic / unfriendly to newbies that I'm reaching out to try and find just a...
I'm sorry for the incredible bad images, my hobby isn't really photography. I just wanted to post pictures of my neps, instead of always asking everyone to show of theirs, thought i could grab my chance as I was watering. Also, I guess I'll use this thread to update on my plants as well as the...
I joined here several months ago to participate in the NASC auction but never formally said hello to everyone so HELLO EVERYONE!
I'm not overly chatty or social on forums. I prefer to read and learn from those with more experience than myself-it helps to keep me and my plants happy (and my...
So i've searched this site's threads and many google sites to try and come to a clear consensus on substrates, it doesn't seem there is on (Which is ok! there probably will never be ha!). So this isn't exactly a question about "What substrate should I use", since there are tons of topics devoted...

There is a specimen of sanguinea en route to our house this week, and I was wondering how big their root systems can get and what size pot we should put it in. The claim is that its a 6 inch hanging basket- but six inches isnt even enough to hold the roots of our capensis! Do you guys think that...
I wanted to share my new ultra highland setup. I don't post much, but I got a ton of info from this forum during this build, so thank you all.
First, I somewhat suddenly found myself in possession of a few ultra highlanders via a trade, but didn't have the proper setup for them. The plants...
I lied... :jester:
If there is anything that I don't have for trade, but you are dying to have, send me a pm and I'll see if I see what I can start propagating for ya. I'm always looking for different clones than what I have, so if you have something I already have on my growlist, send me a...
I'll be honest...these plants are suffering under my care. I just don't want them around anymore, and that has led to me forgetting to water them, etc. They look pretty pitiful, but as far as I can tell, they're still alive.
This will be a mish-mash of various hybrids (mostly ventricosa...
...because why not?
I "rescued" a crowntail betta yesterday, and put him into a temporary tupperware home...where for all intents and purposes, he'd probably be fine.
But I don't like having bettas in anything less than 2 gallons...my conscience nags at me. So today I set out on a DIY...
Okay, so I bought a new LED light- I've been doing some research and talking with folks at the indoor farming store (god bless you berkeley), but it was definitely an impulse buy. Still I think I did it right, though I'd appreciate some knowledgeable feedback.
It's a four foot fixture for my...
Hello everybody! I have been collecting orchids for fair amount of time now and love every single one, that being said I about a year ago got a sarracenia purpurea from a friend and fell hard for cps too. I recently did a little spring cleaning so to speak and tried to free up some space. I...

Part 1 - DIY LED fixture
I'm in the process of assembling a DIY LED grow light fixture that is remotely and automatically controlled (MySGrowLED) and I thought that it may be...
We've got a ginormous N. maxima encroaching on the Sarrs, and I assure you that the Nepenthes is going to lose the fight for space here. It's going to get some love that only a pair of pruners can give. The clone was purchased in the 90s from Wistuba by a friend of mine. I've been...
CP Water Germination Experiment
Phase 1 tropical & subtropical species, mostly Drosera
When I decided to restart my CP collection I had some seeds stored in my refrigerator for up to 17 years. Some were from the ICPS seedbank and some were from my old collection in the mid to...
1) Opening Bid of $20.
2) Up for auction is an assortment of plants that will remain a secret! Orchids, ferns, violets, utricularias, pinguiculas, emersed aquatics, who knows what will be in there! All growing in terrariums right now. Some I will be able to label, others are lost tags, some I...
