    Vft "dente" natural division rate?

    Good afternoon, terraforums. I have a "dente" vft and when I repotted it this spring I found out that I had more than ten! I couldn't count them all, but all except one were seedling sized. In your experience, how often does dente divide? Thanks in advance.

    How long do your maxima's pitcher last?

    Just curious. I'm really surprised by how long mine have lasted. The last of this past late summer/early fall pitchers is just now finally starting to brown out. Considering my winter RH has been around 15%, I'm quite impressed. Mine hasn't formed any new pitchers since last year which was...

    Spring is Here!

    D. Binata dormancy.

    Hey all, I have been reading about d. Binata. I like them, but I've seen photos of specimens the size of a small bush and I do not have room for a sundew the size of a small bush in my house during winter. Is it possible that during winter I could trim the sundew down to its hibernaculum and...

Usually there'll be a Nep or two, maybe some good potting soil ingredients, and net-style pots available along with the distractingly pretty flowers so it's always worth a look. It was two rooms - the first one you walk through is...

    An experiment in automatic watering

    I just finished setting up my automatic watering system yesterday, and wanted to share it. I realized earlier this week that my plants would need to be watered while I was on spring break, and because it would be nearly impossible to find a way to get someone to water them for me, I figured I...

    Will broken sarracenia buds come back?

    I have about five sarracenias that I have had for a few years but this season I wanted to add two more to the family. I got a Leah Wilkerson and a Reptilian Rose. Both arrived today with healthy rhizomes (medium sized) but unfortunately both flower stalks broke off during transit. They were only...

    Do I take the plunge?

    Hey guys, I've grown a lot of different temperate CPs over the years with much success, but haven't really gotten into nepenthes besides by my 6 year old ventrata.

    Splitting down the rhizome?

    Hey all, I have a vft that I was planning to split down the rizome today. What should I use to cut it? Would a pocket knife do? Should I sterilize it with rubbing alcohol first? Is this even a good time to split it? I'm in Ohio and spring is still a week or two away. Thanks for all the help.
