    Terraformers Recipes

    I swear I saw a recipe thread, but now I can't seem to find it. Without much more ado, share your great recipes. I've seen several in the last couple days in the chat that others might like to try. Ready, set, saute! ETA: SOMEbody wouldn't let me post this without a starter recipe. Okey...

    Need to upgrade my Lowland Nepenthes area!

    I'm about at that point where I need to expand my Lowland Nepenthes grow area and I'm looking for input to help me avoid possible problems. I'm currently growing them in Exo-terra 24" X 18" X 18" tanks, I've already had to cut a few vines due to height problems and now I'm getting close to the...

    Cracked Aquarium, Would Love Advice

    Hey Everyone: I bought a ~30 gallon aquarium and got it fitted for a glass lid, intended on using it as another step up when my Neps outgrew their current space. Unfortunately, I accidentally cracked the bottom pretty badly, badly enough that the glass has to be replaced. I went to the local...

    Tank size for N. merrilliana

    A local Nepenthes grower offered to help me build a lowland tank for my apartment. This was something I had planned on doing for a while, but until now I didn't have access to the tools I would need. I want to use the tank to grow several very large lowland Nepenthes, particularly N. merrilliana...

    Impurities in greenhouse watering system

    I keep my carnivorous plants in some spare space in a propagation greenhouse at the University I attend. The plants are all watered (by the greenhouse manager) through a fertigation system which delivers water soluble fertilizer through the irrigation system. My plants are on one of the "Do Not...

    What after germination?

    Hi all, me again with a question for seed growers, especially Nepenthes attenboroughii seed. I'm a beginner and tried my first Nep seeds: I bought some (probably old) Nepenthes seeds online and sowed them the 13th of september. Only the attenboroughii germinated (october 15th), now 8 plants...

    LL truncata crosses in highland conditions?

    I just got some greenhouse space at work, so I've started to grow Nepenthes again after taking a break for the better part of the decade. A nursery I've gotten plants from before is offering two crosses I'm interested in growing, N. truncata x merrilliana "Caesar", and N. "thorellii" x (truncata...

    Little Short Term LED Experiment with a few Cephs

    I ordered a http://www.rapidled.com/4-led-solderless-moonlight-kit/ with some other LEDs to play around with, I'm intending to try it out on a shrimp tank I'm setting up for my wife. I finished the LED strip this morning and I won't be filling that tank up with water for a while because I want...

    Sarracenia pot size

    I have traditionally used larger pots for my pitcher plants, and they always seemed to take advantage of the space with extensively long roots. They vary, but the average pot size is about nine inches deep and eight or so across at the top. I feel like the larger pots have been good for...

    No pitchers for now, but...

    Since I grow mostly Sarracenia there isn't much going on at my house plant-wise. I do, however, have some orchids that are keeping me inspired. I figured someone here might enjoy it, too. This is a Brassocattleya hybrid called Kosh Wallis. Not a bad looking plant considering I bought it from...

    I'm Tired of Water...

    After two years of buying gallons upon gallons of distilled water on the market every week, I think it is time for me to get an RO/DI unit. I posted something on a couple forums last year, but I can't remember which ones (all I remember is that one was a reef forum)... I guess I need something...

    electricity in an indoor greenhouse

    Hi guys! I'm setting up an indoor greenhouse and was wondering how the grow lights will fare with the high humidity atmosphere inside the greenhouse. I am concerned about the electrical dangers as well as regular corrosion on the metal parts of the lights. Also, we don't keep that part of the...

    Free VFT Seedlings

    These are small guys, about one to two years old. They will be putting on a lot of girth this spring, I am sure though. They aren't much to look at now with fall hitting hard, but they are mostly green with various amounts of red blush in strong light. They are from a mixture of open pollinated...

    looking for terra recommendations

    Okay, I'm looking for an ideas on what type/brand terra I can get for the space I have in mind. I have a space available that can fit a terra no larger than 31"long by 24" deep by 28" high, with front access doors. This allows for lights to be hung above rather than inside. Exoterra makes...

    University Greenhouse Conditions

    I was just given some bench space in the horticulture club greenhouse at my university. I live in a tiny apartment, so I'm excited to finally have room to grow Nepenthes. Light and humidity seem perfect, but according to the greenhouse complex manager, the hort club greenhouse is heated to a...
