    The litany of their destruction is too terrible to retell. It is the stuff of nightmares.

    sarracenia successes

    To say squirrels are nuts is to suggest that they are not guilty by virtue of mental disability. Clearly squirrels are consciously destroying our beloved plants.

    sarracenia successes

    I have a sort of belief that "old peat" loses some essential "peatiness" which is essential for CP's. This is a belief and not backed up by the scientific method. I also worry that pathogens/toxins/minerals may build up in "old peat". Any plant bit which is not rotten could possibly grow and...

    Nepenthes Tropical Pitcher Plants vol 1,2,3 Collectors edition

    It does sound great. I try to limit the numbers of big/expensive plant books because they generally after a while sit there unread. Too bad there isn't some cheap way of exchanging books among ourselves.

    how do you tell if peat is decomposed

    Dry peat shouldn't be able to deteriorate although I keep it sealed to keep humidity out. Anything wet and organic and without oxygen could produce H2S and smell of rotting eggs. Don't smell dry peat, you don't want to inhale dust.

    How is peat sustainable

    It's always good to think about the environment. Anybody who likes to grow plants will likely feel strongly about such issues. I recycle sand. Other potting material goes into the garden. I could keep the perlite for further use but I worry that it picks up salts.

    Large highland terrarium setup - cooling with an aquarium chiller

    A bed of U. gibba keeps the gunk away. It's even a good substrate for other CP's.
