    Any harm in going 100% LFS (Maybe some live) for These Sundews:

    Im moving to a terrarium setup here in the next week because quite frankly my humidity inside my house is absolutely terrible. Probably something akin to a 20 gallon (Since I only have a 2 foot long light). (BTW Any tips on how high the light should be in a terrarium? right now they are about 8...

    Worth it getting a Terrarium for pings?

    Have been battling with whether getting a Terrarium is worth it for Pings? Im probably going to repot my pings into a more mineral based mix. (Im thinking probably the APS and Terfus, or a Mix of either one of those with Sand). I actually prefer the look of it (based on what im seeing in other...

    Ultra Highland Setup

    I wanted to share my new ultra highland setup. I don't post much, but I got a ton of info from this forum during this build, so thank you all. First, I somewhat suddenly found myself in possession of a few ultra highlanders via a trade, but didn't have the proper setup for them. The plants...

    Tips for making a better terrarium?

    https://images-na.ssl-images-amazon.com/images/I/61s1H%2BttARL.jpg The current one I have just houses plants that can handle indoor humidity, since it has screen mesh. How would, or even should, I cover that up to increase the humidity. Will it be healthy airflow wise? Is the new thing to...

    Nepenthes ampullaria red stripe x black stripe unrooted cutting

    Trading an unrooted cutting of my nepenthes ampullaria for a nepenthes aristolochioides, tentaculata, pitopangii, rajah, tenuis or villosa of any size. I would keep the plant whole but it has outgrown its terrarium which is why the newest leaf is sort of deformed. You will get the whole main...

    Growlights for a 10-gallon terrarium?

    Greetings. I purchased a 10-gallon terrarium to have a Cephalotus, Drosera prolifera, and a Pinguicula 'Pirouette'. The terrarium is 12 inches long and 6 inches wide. What would be the best option for growlights for this? I'm having difficulty finding bulbs for this

    ScatterPants of Portland, OR. Greetings through pictures

    Hello everyone. I have been in the chat and lurking around a bit so thought I'd finally put together an intro thread. I'm just starting to get into carnivores aside from some success with Nepenthes before and a failure with Darlingtonia outdoors over winter some years back. I have a 4ft T5...

    Benurmanii's Pics 'N Stuffs

    Finally. I never take the time to get nice photos of my plants that I feel are presentable enough to make the effort of putting them on the forums. However, I took a few nice photos today (for Instagram with my not-so-good phone camera) while I was renovating my highland terrarium so I feel like...

    Drosera flexicaulis cultivation

    Does anyone have experience cultivating Drosera flexicaulis? I have it growing indoors in a terrarium under lights, but I'm not sure that that is the right thing to do since there isn't that much light and it looks rather etiolated. If I grew it outside I would be able to give it full sun but...

    *PAID* Tillandsia setacea seeds (aerogrower $2)

    Up for auction are two pods worth of recently harvested Tillandsia setacea seeds. I have never tried germinating them myself so some research or experimentation on the buyer's part will be necessary. (Hopefully with a follow up as to what worked for them. :) ) Seeds will be mailed in a...

    *PAID* Utricularia bisquamata 'Betty's Bay' (Nauz $15)

    For bid is a roughly one-half inch plug of Utricularia bisquamata 'Bettys' Bay'. This cultivar is the famous "tame" version of the species that does not invade other pots by producing unwanted seed and, in addition, it has larger flowers. Nice stuff. Sorry I don't have any photos but it is just...

    Opinions on Aquarium Chiller

    I am thinking of buying an aquarium chiller to create a highland grow area. My plan is to have a 20 gall terrarium with the aquarium chiller cooling the water at the bottom of the tank, and a few fans to blow the cold air around. Any thoughts/ opinions?

    Any ideas about thermostats?

    I have a heat lamp that I'm setting up with a terrarium to keep some plants warm enough to be in the terrarium rather than in a different room. The only problem is that on a warmer day the sun comes in and warms it up by itself, so when I was testing the light today it was 87 degrees at four...

    Evaporative Cooling.

    Ok, I need some critiquing of my thought process here. I know that evaporative cooling (swamp cooler) needs low humidity to reduce the temperature; that it can only reduce the air to the wet bulb temperature, which is a deviation of the current temperature and humidity. For example, areas with...

    Hello from Rochester, NY

    Hello all, I've been growing carnivorous plants for over 10 years. Most of that time I lived in Brooklyn where my growing area was limited to two small windowsills. I moved upstate a few years ago and my collection has grown exponentially. I am interested in all types of carnivorous plants but...
