    Shipping Helis in the Winter?

    I am thinking about trying some Heliamphora, but wonder if I should wait until spring to have some shipped to me. Do they do alright being shipped with the threat of cold?

    My Hummers giants.

    Not exactly giants at the moment, but the plants overall have tripled in size since the Spring. It's just been too cold outside to get good shots so I did the best I could under T-5's. There are a few baby cuttings I took in the Spring too. The one in the white pot is just too crammed and will...

    Dead Sarracenia

    How can I tell if my Sarracenia are dead? I think they're in dormancy right now, but they dried out over the summer with watering only once every few weeks. A few parts were still green and the peat they were in was somewhat moist. The roots were in tact and looked well. I really didn't want...

    I'm interested in expanding my collection of rafflesiana and ampullaria. Looking for almost all varieties of rafflesiana, ampullaria, or x hookeriana. Cuttings or unrooted basals are fine.

    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...

    Does anyone know the state of the Tarnok bog in MS?

    I posted this in another forum, but I thought I'd post it here too. My understanding is that both of the Tarnoks (of S. leucophylla 'Tarnok' fame) have passed. I was just wondering if anyone knew what has become of their bog. This is what I found in a New Orleans florist's newsletter...

    Hey guys! I am ridiculously excited because I just pitched an idea for me to teach a class on CPs at the State Botanical Garden of Georgia.

Its getting close to dormancy and I don't think any of the off shoots are going to make it. I thought I was suppose to divide in the spring. Anyways here is a pic, would love some info...

    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...

    Do cuttings and leaf pulls have a lower success when done in autumn.

    Do they just rot, or do they still stay dormant till spring... As I have a few Australian Reds to do... these grow well all year round never done them over winter, so I question about the rhizome cuttings as well as the leaf pull. Rhizome's Divisions will pop up I am sure however, I am...
