    Just like a bad check...

    Hello all... I am back!! Its been a while since I have been active here at TF, so I thought I'd take a minute to re-introduce myself. I first got interested in CPs back in 2002 or so when I got my first venus flytrap. After a year or so I discovered this forum and I really loved it. I made...

    "Death cube" drosera identification needed

    My local nursery was having a 30% off sale on some plants and I decided to pick up a "death cube" VFT and Drosera. Does anyone know what species of Drosera this is? My guess would be spatulata. Thanks!

    Carnivory: What was your biggest catch?

    Of all the things your plants have caught, which one holds the title? For mine, it goes to my VFT, however the S. purp definitely holds champion for number. These were the only 2 I took picks of, however this plant in particular has caught some king sized earwigs. I believe this was a fly...

    Sarracenia Deathcube rescue!

    I bought a Deathcube from Lowes last night as I havent owned any Sarrs yet, and it ended up being 2 individual Sarracenia plants when I repotted them. I planted them with my VFT to make a tiny "community" of carnivores! Look how bright green they are! They mustve been deprived of light for a...
