    Formal Introduction

    I figured that if I wanted to start being more active on terraforums, it would be a good idea to formally introduce myself. My name is Ivan Lacroix and I am 15 years old. I started growing carnivorous plants when I was 11 when I first read a book about cps in my science class. Ever since then my...

    Gloriosa superba 'Rothschildiana' and Noid Ginger Plant

    Due to a bumper crop of one, and the generosity of a friend on the other, I have more of both of these than I have space for. The Gloriosa is a summer grower and these should be stored cool and dry until spring. The ginger should be planted immediately. You'll receive several pieces of root...

    Trout's Growlist

    My grow list is very short :(. Terrarium: 7 D. Muscipula 'Red Dragon' 2. D. Capensis typical (one of these, I'm not actually sure of, because under its current lighting, the leaves are turning pink, which I didn't think was normal for D. Capensis) 2 D. 'Floating' Some strange spiky grass...

    Passion flower

    Well I grow two different types of passion flower. Passiflora incarnata and p. Caerulea. The p. Caerulea does ever flower, but produces beautiful foliage so I don't mind. My p. Incarnata is at the end of its first year of growth and had a flower, now is producing a fruit with , I hope, viable...

    Dormancy

    Hey guys, Long time no see! So, I had originally planned to pull my VFTs out of my terrarium for their dormancy, but (and please correct me if I'm wrong) They seem to be starting their dormancy already. I'll post pics of the plant that is furthest along in what I think it's doing, later. I'll...

    Orchids for highland Nepenthes?

    Any orchids that would do well in either pure sphagnum or sphagnum and orchid bark out there? Temps are about 70-80 during the day in the summer, 57-65 at night. In the winter it's 48-55 at night, and 65 during the day. Not sure about humidity, but there are several trays of moss in the...

    BPB's 90 gallon reef

    <p>I'm very happy to be part of this forum. I had mentioned in my welcome thread that I was an avid saltwater and freshwater aquarist. I thought I would share a bit about my 90 gallon reef tank as I'm getting my feet wet in the world of CP</p><p>*</p><p>I started in the hobby not long ago back...

    Cooling a grow chamber?

    Hey everybody, I've been researching ways to cool smaller areas like grow tents and chambers. I've read about mini swamp coolers (which obviously wouldn't work) wine chillers, modified chest freezers, mini AC units which pipe the air into a tent/chamber, etc. and I haven't yet found something...

    Finally, some good news . . .

    It looks like we'll soon be seeing launches from Cape Canaveral once again, as Boeing and Space-X plan on delivering astronauts to the International Space Station by 2017. For someone who grew up during the height of the Space Age -- many of us recall or even had models of the lunar lander...

    Help, pest problem on my drosera spatulata

    Soooo, a few days ago, this was discovered on a pot that's placed right next to the Drosera Spatulata. Then I started seeing webs appearing so I i'm assuming the spatulata is also infected with the same pest. Sorry the webs are kind of hard to see cause I got rid of them before I took...

    D. sp. "Lantau Island" Giveaway

    Finally started re-potting some things, and these are in bad need of separation. I've already potted out about a dozen of them, so I have more than I need. I'd like to see some of them spread out to people who would enjoy them. Image is from a couple weeks ago, and while the plant you get is...

    N. khasiana weirdness

    I've had this N. khasiana for a while now. It has always been a good grower, but lately it's been acting a little... weird. First, it started making smaller leaves with less space between the internodes, but the pitcher size didn't decrease: I assumed this was the result of high light (it...

    Setup for a single bulb growlight?

    So basically I noticed the tree in our front yard grew leaves and is now casting a shadow on my window during the evening which kinda deprives my plants of some light, so I picked up a cheap 40 watt CFL bulb for supplemental light (2800 lumens, 6500k) and I currently have it setup as such: So...

    New indoor grow tent set up

    All, I recently made the conversion from my basic baker's rack set up to a grow tent. I made the decision due to limited space in the rack and wanting to have more control over the environment as a means to grow more difficult species. Hopefully this post may help others who are interested in...

    My small collection

    It was sunny today so I figured I should take some of the plants out for photos. N. maxima 'Wavy Leaf': The horizontal pitcher at 6:00 was one of the originals that came with the plant when I got it 5 months ago, as was the now-dead one at 3:00. Quite long-lived pitchers. N. glabrata: This...

They're three or four years old and been producing pitchers 6-7 inches long. Winners will pay 6 dollars shipping preferably by paypal...

    Free: Minature Orchids and Ant Plants

    I don't want to do this, but it's for the best. I am giving away some miniature orchids and ant plants. They aren't doing well in my conditions and I need to clear out some space. I don't like games, so it's first come, first serve . . . if you meet these few requirements: *Have been a...
