    N. x "Hopeful Monsters"

    Mystery N. merrilliana hybrids (sold as N.'Hopeful Monsters' by a certain Nepenthes nursery in Hawaii) have been around for several years now. I am a huge fan of N. merrilliana crosses, so if anyone has pics, I would be very curious to see how they are turning out! From talking with the nursery...

    CPs next to a shower

    I was wondering if it is okay to put CPs in a room with a shower. I have a bathroom with a north-facing window that gets a fair amount of sun in the afternoon because of the elevation that I would like to move my Drosera regia too, but it is next to a shower. The water from the shower wouldn't...

    NASC Auction 2014?

    Anyone know when the NASC auction is this year? I haven't seen many people talking about it. I'm taking an environmental science class and I have to follow an environmental organization throughout the semester and make a speech/report on the progress of the organization at the end of the year...

    Nepenthes (merrilliana x truncata) x vetchii 'Caesarion'

    My little guy is finally settled in enough to make it's first pitcher for me, and I wanted to share. I was talking to some professionals, and they seemed to think that this hybrid is destined to be lack-luster. Sure, it's parent, 'Caesar' was enormous in the pitcher department, but was...

    Wine Chiller Terrarium - I'm Trying It! - Thermoelectric Cooling Fun!

    During the last Black Friday madness I was able to pick up one of the smaller chillers for under $50. I did a ton of research before pulling the trigger on this as I was not able to find a single example of one that worked. After much reading and talking to a few people I believe this may work...

    Teaching a class on CPs!!!!!

    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. I know a few staff over there, and since I already exhibit CPs at one of their events the idea went over really well. It will probably be in the spring and...

    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...

    sarracenia in flower arrangements?

    I was just curious if anyone has ever tried to incorporate sarracenia pitchers in a cut flower arrangement, now i am not talking about cutting every pitcher off a single plant, but if there was a fallen one, if someone has cut one with this intention. If someone has done this, how longer before...

    Here's a nice surprise!

    My wife and I were out hunting for chantrelle mushrooms today.. While wandering around, we quickly realized our woodlands had suddenly turned into marshlands. We were forced to push through some thick brush and prickers trying to find our way back over to the path we came in on. It was at this...

    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)...

    water loving cp's for a terrarium

    I have a 125 gallon terrarium with a pond. I am about to redesign my terrarium and turn the pond into a bog. I need some ideas on what cp's would be best there. I'm actually thinking of stuffing the pond area with sphagnum moss and having the water level just at or slightly above the moss. I...

    The Big Move.

It just sits in a ten gal. in my basement and does nothing. Since the icps show last summer. I've heard people...

    EVENTVWR SCAM: Your computer will be inoperable in 6 hours

    I was hit today over the phone by the "EVENTVWR Phishing Scam" so I just thought I'd let everyone know about it. I was just preparing to leave when the phone rang and a frantic sounding guy with an Indian accent told me he was from "Windows Internet Security & Support" (or something like that)...

    Anyone for animals from temporary vernal pools?

    So, if you read the title of this post, you will see that I am talking about animals from vernal pools. What are these crazy things? They include Triops, Fairy Shrimp, Clam Shrimp, and Brine Shrimp. I currently raise Triops. Do any of you raise them? I have some pics that I will post over the...

    Windowsill Cephalotus

    I was talking with a couple of CP experts, and they told me that a Cephalotus can grow as a tropical houseplant on a windowsill. Although I was skeptical I decided to give it a try. This past year I moved one of my Cephalotus from the tenthouse to the kitchen windowsill, which faces the East...
