    Bugs Found in Sphagnum Moss

    Hi, I was looking at the spaghnum moss of my venus fly trap, and I noticed that there were these tiny bugs crawling around in it that were no bigger than the head of a pin. They were too small to be able to take a picture of, so I tried to draw a picture of what they looked like. Can anyone ID...

    D. schizandra soil

    I need a little Nepenthes help

    I have two Nepenthes that I'm not sure if they're ok or not and would appreciate some advice/thoughts. The first one is N. spectabilis. I'm not sure if I even need to worry about this one since the newer leaves are doing good. My concern is the older leaves seem to die really fast and turn...

    Received Sarracenia rhizomes

    I just purchased five random rhizomes from someone and they arrived bare rooted. My question is whether I should put them in a medium before I put them in the fridge for the next couple months, or whether they could remain mostly bare rooted wrapped in some spaghnum. They are in hibernation now...

    need advice on a d. x obovata

    I just rcd a nice one today and am very happy with it EXCEPT that it is growing in spaghnum!!!! I really hate it when sundews are in moss bc if you want to remove said moss it almost always annoys the plant. But observing the rotundafolia in it I am guessing it has sensitive roots like the...

    My Redneck Terrarium

    So I decided to take my plastic tub and give it an upgrade- country style. I would provide pictures, but not tonight. All I have is 3g for internet and it tends to be slow to upload pictures. Hopefully over the next few days I can. I found an old phone charger with good power rating and used...

    Cayenne Powder as Bird Repellant?

    Recently the birds have been indulging on my nep spaghnum so much that I need to repot every single one I've had outside. I read on the ICPS forum that you could use cayenne powder for Sarracenia for squirrel prevention. I was wondering if it would be fine to use on Neps, and if it would even...

    pale/yellow seedlings

    Hi, i sowed some Bongso seed last year and some of them have germinated. They started out green but in a few days every new leaf becomes pale/yellow. Could this be caused by too much light ? They are 10 cm below 2 55 watt pl lights. The soil is a mixture of peat, chopped spaghnum and perlite...

    Repotting little babies!

    So, how should I repot these devil capensis, the bringer of invasiveness? They're approx. a month old and I'd like to unclump them, if you will, and put them about 1-2cms where they'll have room to grow. Will they die if I pick up the spaghnum clump and individually seperate them, or are they...

    Little bog terrarium.

    There is a lot of bog here in southeast Alaska. So I more or less just put a terrarium outside, threw some live spaghnum moss in there and planted a few native carnivores, it's not very impressive but it is also extremely easy to take care of, I virtually don't. D. rotundifolia cuddling up...

    :censor: There were some birds upfront in the gutters... fine with that, but i put out my neps and they started pecking spaghnum to put in their nest. the evidence was the nest speckled with spaghnum and perlite... so i moved them down back. Then, a bird tore off two ventricosa pitchers, and...
