I'm from the Northern Lower Peninsula of Michigan, been growing CPs for about 1 year now and totally addicted.
I've been reading a lot online & in books. I've been primarily active on the reddit page r/SavageGarden learning, sharing pictures, and making some exchanges. I'm trying...
I have had a lot of time one my hands :-))
- Brocchinia reducta
- B. guehoi
- B. liniflora
- B. filifolia x guehoi
- C. follicularis (a beautiful plant from Nauz)
- D. californica
- D. californica seed grown...
Early last spring ( 2015) I was ordering a couple of hard to find Darlingtonia ( If they are actually as described) and I decided to add Pinguicula vulgaris seed to the order as I hadn't grown the species for many years. Nothing at all happened in the pot last year except for the customary...
Last year I took a trip to the northern portion of Michigan and the southern portion of Upper Peninsula. On the trip I encountered various carnivorous plants and orchids.
Emmet County (Day 1):
The first site was quite unique compared to similar sites I have been to. All of these plants...
I spent this weekend visiting different CP sites throughout New England. The first stop was a failed attempt to see Pinguicula vulgaris in New Hampshire with Natch. The site is at the top of a large talus slope. We were able to get about 3/4 of the way up but then got stuck at a thick treeline...
OK here's Fred with another wort. I have a couple of quarter trays with this fern in and can see immediately that it is super easy to identify in the wild. That's once you've knelt down on mud and decided that the mass of green growth isn't grass or reed and your high power loupe hasn't steamed...
Up for bid are two small P. vulgaris plants from my outdoor bog garden. They are just now emerging from dormancy and are putting out their first leaves of the season. These are truly temperate plants and I don't have any idea how they will do outside of this region's climate, but they...
Jeremiah Harris and I decided to check out the Harvard Museum of Natural History yesterday. There is a vast mineral collection on display as well as an array of stunning fossils, skeletons and Victorian era taxidermy specimens from around the world. In this diverse collection of natural wonders...
I have been asked for my growlist many times and I am really bad about keeping one so here goes (As of this posting this list is incomplete and only includes my Aldrovanda, Genliseas and Utricularias).
My Interests in the Carnivorous plant world
D. muscipula (normal)
N. bicalcarata (Brunei orange)
N. bicalcarata (Sarawak Giant)
N. ampullaria (Brunei spotted)
N. mirabilis (Red Globosa Viking)
N. rafflesiana (seedlings)
S. leucophylla 'Tarnok'
I got this plant in a trade today, but the person I got it from doesn't know what it is. I'm tempted to say vulgaris, because it looks like what I have grown before as vulgaris. Also, does anyone know whether Meadowview's vulgaris is really vulgaris, or is it macrorhiza? The picture they have of...
I'm Howard. I've been getting back into carnivorous plants after a 3 year gap. I have a Nepenthes (not sure about the species) that I've had for almost 10 years.
Here's a list of plants I have acquired in the last few months:
I'm a graduate student at Cornell University, and I have heard from school faculty and fellow students that there are several areas on and immediately adjacent to campus where Drosera rotundifolia, Sarracenia purpurea v. purpurea, and Pinguicula vulgaris populations are present. I live right...
I'm looking to trade for plants that will survive the cold, New Hampshire winter outside. Specifically, I'm looking for D. angelica (not the Hawaiian variant), D. linearis, and P. vulgaris, but I'm open to trading for hardy, non-North American plants, too.
I don't have too much...
I had the opportunity this summer to work in Chicago, and while I love the city, it did mean I was away from my carnivorous plant garden. So after 9 weeks without seeing any carnivores (with the exception of scraggly Nepenthes at Chicago's conservatory), I decided to head out to Volo Bog. I read...
Pinguicula vulgaris (Western Norway) seeds for trade. Looking for seeds of rosette-forming Drosera species, Drosera binata var multifida (and other well branching binata ssp) or of any non typical VFT. Trade only within Europe. PM Welcome :)
So, I don't have that big of a collection yet, but I decided to share a few of the Pings that I do have so far:
P. gigantea, more than 5 times the size I got it
P. moranensis x ehlersiae
P. 'Aphrodite.' This one's been weird for me, the main plant flowering, then dying back, and now I...
