    Heliamphora Flower/Pollination

    My heterodoxa x minor shot out a flower as well! I tried harvesting pollen from both flowers but nothing seemed to drop. I used an electric toothbrush to buzz at the flowers with a small bowl underneath. The first flower is starting to look like it's wilting. Is there anything else I can do?

    Let's talk about mist!

    The utricularia down by the water level seem to appreciate the fog on all the time. There's been this when the water level was too low for the foggers to work and the utrics didn't seem as happy so I just decided to keep them on all the time.

    Let's talk about mist!

    I own both mistking and fogger systems but right now only have foggers in my intermediate chamber. In my set up, I have a water reservoir at the bottom of my chamber with a small fogger in it. I positioned an IP68 computer fan above the fogger which is controlled by an inkbird humidistat. The...

    Raising native western toads

    Wow the progression is awesome! I raised some tadpoles to toads a few years ago but raccoons came and tore apart their tank (I had it outdoors under a shaded patio.

    Heliamphora Flower/Pollination

    One of my H. minors surprised me yesterday with a flower spike. Time to get a tuning fork! Did anyone else get flowers/pollen this year?

    Ant keeping

    Can you post some pics of your formicariums? I used mostly test tubes but moved some larger colonies to some 3D printed ones I bought off ebay. Gonna PM you.

    Ant keeping

    I used to keep ants 2 years ago. Had several camponotus and lasius colonies but totally neglected them over the winter and they died off :( I wouldn't mind starting up again but haven't gone queen hunting in a long time.

    When Winter Arrives

    I would either go the fridge route or the outdoor styrofoam/cooler route with a small heater with thermostat to keep temps around 1-4C.

    When Winter Arrives

    Do you have access to a garage? I stick mine in the back of the garage. Only suffered 1 loss last winter and that's because I let an unestablished VFT completely dry out.

    Thought my outdoor sarrs had thrips - ended up burning all of them.

    I dumped out all the old water and only refilled it to 1/3 up the pots. Definitely a sulfur or methane smell when I dumped the water - most likely due to anaerobic conditions in the soil. All my outdoor CP's look like absolute crap now :( What's especially upsetting is all the flower stalks are...
