    FT: Sars, Pings, and a Nep

    I realize this is a bit of a stretch given that I have almost nothing to trace, but I I've got limited grow space and so I'm looking to part ways with some plants that take up too much space. What I really want to grow are Cephs and Heli's since my small grow area is completely climate...

    Mineral media gone anaerobic?

    I decided to try a different type of media for my Mexican Pings, they were doing ok but it always seemed like they were too wet in a peat based mixture. So I experimented with a new mixture, which included lava rock, dolomite, vermiculite, perlite and turface (APS) and threw in a very miniscule...

Having just lost my job, I find myself with an abundance of time, so here's some pictures of my plants 'n such! If you could help me ID them, I'd be grateful... I've always just...

    jpappy789's grow rack - let's get this back to its former glory!

    jpappy789's grow rack - recovery mode This is going to be my motivation to put some more work into my plants...because, well, they don't look so good right now. Probably not as bad as I'm going to make it out to be, but I've certainly seen these plants at their best and this isn't it...and I...

    Humidity/temp questions..how low/high?

    Okay, my current setup consists of a three tiered, large grow rack enclosed with Plexiglas but with gaps at the corners and an open bottom, no glass (so I covered the rack with plastic). This rack has hinged doors so it's hard to totally enclose. I also have a large enclosed tank in the same...

    Oregoncp's 10x12 Harbor freight greenhouse adventures

    Let me proceed this by saying I am a horrible forum poster. But I am going to give this a go, to chronicle my new 10x12HFGH. I have wanted a greenhoing use for years (probably close to 12). I have always been held back by a lack of usable space to install a GH. About a week ago I finally...

    Ventricosa not thriving?

    Hi guys, I joined the forum to ask about my ventricosa (probably, could be ventrata). I've had it for a few years; love it, will get more neps when I have the space. It's grown from a tiny home depot plantling to a sizeable plant, with approximately equal sized vining and basal stems. Until...

    UnstuckinTime's 1st Attempt at a Grow Shelf

    Hey Everyone! It's been a very long time since I posted, or even viewed, anything on this forum. Truth be told, I put this hobby of mine on the back burner as I made the push to finish my undergrad degree, and apply for graduate school. Then I got lazy, figuring I shouldn't upgrade, or get...

    Greenhouse for highland Nepenthes

    Hello, I have a 6x8 greenhouse that I am using to grow annual Drosera for the summer. It is made out of flexible, semitransparent plastic sheeting which is relatively thin. I am wondering if I could use this greenhouse for Nepenthes in winter if I have a space heater going. Thanks, nepenthes99

    Shade for Nepenthes

    Next week I will pour the footings for a new 8 x 12 shadehouse. While I have planned out every detail, one is still bothering me, shade cloth percentage. Currently, all my plants are in full sun. My biggest problem is with temps and humidity. Even in the winter months the newest leaves and...

    Sarracenia Inventory Reduction

    I know it's late in the season, but with the weather beginning to cool off in the Mid-Atlantic US (a great time for shipping, btw), thoughts turn to the greenhouse and ... Holy excrement, how am I going to fit all of my up-potted Sarracenia and their associated extra divisions inside for the...

I don't have the finances to build such a structure, but I am looking for advice/things to know before beginning my first greenhouse before too long. In other words, what features have you found to be most essential and...

    Hello from New Hampshire!

    Hey everyone: I'm new to terraforums, but not to CPs. I've recently started growing CPs again after a hiatus of nearly a decade. My current grow list is pretty small, being that I've only just acquired most of my plants in the last three weeks or so, but I'm excited to begin expanding my...

    What's your favorite aquatic plant?

    Hello TF members:) I've recently gone out from planted tanks into African cichlids. It's good and bad at the same time. Good: less maintenance, African cichlids are easier to breed and sell, does well with the naturally hard water in Lathrop. Bad: less plant options because of high ph(7.5 -8)...

    ventricosa x hamata problem

    I can't figure this one out. Within the same grow tank the ventricosa has done so well that it quickly outgrew the space. It pitchered easily and never seemed fussy. In the same tank, my hamate is also growing and pitchering nicely. Yet..the ventricosa x hamate sulks, barely grows and...

    Highland Nepenthes tank

    Hello! :) I have a couple of questions, I'm planning on making my aquarium into a highland nepenthes tank. It's kind of small, 50x33x27 cm, but I think that it's big enough for the moment since 8 pots fits inside and there's still allot of space between them. I know this tank isn't big enough...

    The miraculous revival of a troubled Adelae Giant

    I've had this little guy for about 6 months. It always has been a little unhappy. Wasn't in the best shape when I got it. At first I put it my terrarium with other similar dews. It slowly recovered but soon took up too much space. I decided to acclimate it to a sunny windowsill with an added...
