    Another west-coast Washingtonian

    A few years ago I had the good fortune to visit Nova Scotia, where I saw my first pitcher plants ever. Although “bogging” wasn’t the purpose of the visit, the plants and their habitat were super intriguing. I didn't realize it at the time, but the hook had been set. Fast forward several years…...

    D. occidentalis x pulchella. Gemmae for Gemmae?

    Hey all! Since only starting CP growing earlier this year, I've only gotten one batch of pygmy Drosera gemmae so far, which is D. occidentalis x pulchella. I'd really like to expand my collection of these cool little guys, while hopefully doing the same for other folks. D. occidentalis x...

    Mixed terrestrial Utricularia in a single container?

    Does anybody grow multiple species of terrestrial Utricularia in a single container, intentionally or unintentionally? I'm not tied to the one species per pot paradigm. I'm envisioning something with mixed flowerscapes, but don't know if that's possible. Would one of them eventually outcompete...

    Light for Nepenthes

    Normally I grow my Nepenthes outdoors, but winters here are a bit too cold for the lowland species (Zone 9a). Last year, I tried putting them on a shelf by a windowsill (no supplemental lighting) and kept them in trays, but some of them did not make it through the winter. I've decided to get...

    Forcing Dormancy/Photoperiod? (Plus some general Dormancy questions)

    So i have to say, there is a lot of conflicting information on Ping dormancy. I've been doing a lot of reading and i've seen everything from "They can survive not going through dormancy" to "Let the PLANTS choose when to do dormancy" to "Change your light/temp/etc... to induce it" For reference...

    UV Fluorescence in CPs

    I thought I'd start a thread for pictures and discussion of UV fluorescence in CPs. I get the impression that it's not a very well-known phenomenon, and I'd like to change that! I'll start with a fantastic picture of N. "Triffid" I took last night: And one of my random hybrid from April...

    Hey everyone, I have a Miltassia Shelob 'The Weed'. It's the first orchid I ever bought and I've had it for several years. I've previously had it in straight orchid bark and watered it about once a weak. It would put out one or two new bulbs a year and spike once from each bulb. Of course...

    Flytrap in UltraHD if you got the screen for it

    Hi, Bought me a UltraHD capable camera before Christmas. If you have a monitor that can show UltraHD it kinda look pretty cool if I may say so myself. It works on any monitor but to get that super sharpness you need the extra pixels! Going to film a lot of feeding I'm the future! :)

    Drosera Graomogolensis Feeding

    I just got myself a drosera graomogolensis. I was wondering if it is advisable to feed this species. I used to have 3 plantlets that were growing super well on a WINDOWSILL out of all places ( dew and everything) I decided to try to feed to speed up growth, food rotted and so did the whole...
