    Heliamphora tatei x sarracenoides

    @VarunA was kind enough to send me a nice sized division of this hybrid that I grew from seed given to me by Av8or1 from TF at the ICPS forum way back in 2012. I had killed the original mother plant a few years back and was missing this weird hybrid with lots of sentimental value. Since I got it...

    Stylidium Troubles

    I remember growing a number of Stylidium species rather successfully when I was starting out with CPs. I wanted to try them out again so I've started graminifolium and debile from seed, and I'm having terrible luck with them, I had decent luck getting graminifolium to a decent size in my lowland...

    Orbea speciosa

    My local Canadian Tire sometimes gets weird succulents in at excellent prices, so I make a point of checking out the houseplant selection whenever I'm in there for other reasons, on my last visit I found this Stapeliad with a flower bud and picked it up ($7.99!), as I'm a big fan of these...

    Nepenthes 'Lady Pauline' looking for love

    Hey y'all, My 'Lady Pauline' is throwing out a flower on a recent cutting, so assuming it actually produces pollen (I believe this clone is male, and it looks like a good spike so far) does anybody have any female plants coming in to flower who would be interested in a seed split of some kind...

    P. gigantea troubleshoot

    Hey All, I got this P. gigantea from Willy back in may and I've been having difficulties with it ever since. It's growing in a largely mineral mix (perlite, sand, vermiculite and a little peat) in a decently tall pot (so it's far from the water table) being kept on the dry side (I let the tray...

    Nepenthes 'Lady Pauline' for trade (CLOSED)

    I'm looking to trade this rooted basal cutting (see below) since it's taking up a lot of space in my tank - I'm interested in other Nepenthes species, lowland ones being preferred. Maybe something flashy like a raff or an ampullaria? I'll entertain any offer though I'd prefer pure species. PM me...

    Dodder (Cuscuta sp.)

    I had my first encounter with this strange plant this week: There were several large stretches along a creek that were feeding off a variety of hosts - it was so abundant that it looked like patches of goldenrod from a distance. Here are some closeup photos showing the attachment site on an...

    Blown back Ceph lids

    Hey all, I've started growing Cephalotus again after a multi-year hiatus, and while I'm pleased with how they're growing so far, the lid on my largest plant is waaay open, as if it were enjoying a ride in a convertible, or an exciting rollercoaster. Otherwise the plant seems healthy, the...

    Conopholis americana

    Here's an inflorescence of this species (common name is American Cancer-root or Bear Corn) I photographed last weekend. I've never actually seen this species in full flower, only in fruit like this one. The host in this case was an Oak (didn't look at the species, but I assume red). I've never...

    Drosera roraimae

    I got this dew about eight years ago in one of Devon's BCP imports, it has been an extremely poor grower for me for essentially that entire time, but somehow managed to survive in pots that were badly overgrown with moss. I think this is a HL clone, as it really dislikes the heat, but despite...

    New Queensland Dew - D. buubugujin

    Thought everyone here might be interested in this description of a new species in the "three (four) sisters" complex: https://www.qld.gov.au/__data/assets/pdf_file/0024/126735/mathieson-thompson-austrobaileya-v10s4-549-557.pdf?fbclid=IwAR2255ki_cBmK0pFpSQGJbzhimz3Yse1Gn-leesgqrE50d8XBmBcqvE3QHs

    Monkey Puzzle Tree

    Hi All, I'm on the lookout for small plants (shippable sizes) or seeds of this species - they seem to be listed as Cites appendix 1, so I guess seeds from international sources are a no go, and I'm having trouble finding anything in Canada. I've been interested in trying this one for a long...

    Macro pics

    I had my macro rig out today and after trying to chase around some bugs at 4x I remembered that plants don't move. Here are some pics of my collection at high magnification (3x-4.5x) from my Lowa 25mm ultra macro. I didn't note the specific magnifications for the images, but the images should be...

    Skunk Cabbage

    I made time (plenty of that for me at the moment) to go visit a population of Skunk Cabbage (Symplocarpus foetidus) now that the weather is getting milder. There's still about 2 to 6 inches of snow on the ground, but I was pleased to find two flowers that were emerging despite this covering...

    Aizoaceae from seed

    Hi All, I've been on a bit of a succulent bender lately, and have started a couple of species from the Aizoaceae from seed. These are interesting plants to start because they germinate very quickly (I had one lithops germinate in less than 48 hours), and they put on an impressive initial...

    Looking for neat seeds

    Hi All, I'm looking to get some interesting carnivorous plant seeds to bulk up my collection a bit. I'd love recommendations for reliable retailers who sell online, and would also love to hear what those in the community have available. Things I'm looking for specifically: Pinguicula...

    Some Pics

    Here are some pictures from my terrarium today, I'm still tweaking my lighting and the distance from the lights (some need to be moved up, others need to be moved down...). It's an Atasuki from Big Al's, I think a 40 or 50 gal (who knows!) that fits well on the top of the shelf I used to grow...

    Hi Again

    Hey y'all - some of you may remember me from the old forum, where I was fairly active. I'm just getting back into the swing of things with CPs and am working to restore my (now much smaller) collection to its former glory. I continue to keep busy with my natural history pursuits (mostly birds)...
