  1. Is this hybrid an intermediate? Also, does anyone have matured pitchers of it?
  2. Botritis prevention

    Damn, it sounds invincible. It has to be something on the market that can deal with it, maybe there are but it is copper based, or something that is harmful to CP. This sucks.
  3. Botritis prevention

    isn't sulfur able to treat Botrytis?
  4. Some common species like Drosera spathulata, Utricularia Sandersonii, couple of Capensis cultivars and some other non carnivorous plants, but on those i think i can use regular fungicide. I grow my plants inside the house and I've always had troubles with loosing plants to fungi because of the bad airflow. I'll make a greenhouse this upcoming spring, but until then, I don't want to loose any plants.
  5. Has anyone used this for carnivorous plans? I have some fungus problems on some drosera and utricularia. It has Trifloxystrobin and tebuconazole. I know that tebuconazole is safe and the sarracenia northwest is using this active ingredient but I don't know about trifloxystrobin and couldn't found anything on it. link to the fungicide https://www.amazon.co.uk/Bayer-Garden-Fungus-Fighter-Plus/dp/B00R7PY8W2/ref=sr_1_2?ie=UTF8&qid=1511923147&sr=8-2&keywords=bayer+fungicide
  6. Yea, the logo just sticks in your head from the first time you see it and that's a good thing because it's easier for people to recognize it. Also it's the iconic carnivorous plant that everyone knows, even those who are not growing these plants. I disagree with David, there are many topics to be talked about. From species, to cultivars, to growing mediums ( i think we can all agree that peat exploitation is bad for established ecosystems and we need alternatives ), beginner guides, in depth trap mechanism, conservation acts, wild populations etc. there is a lot to be talked about. There's this guy who does the InDefenseOfPlants podcasts and besides the interviews and stuff, he did these hiking audio where he described the plants he met in the wild. He went through a swamp with a boat describing the species and it was really cool but it was all audio, so I suggested to him to take a camera with him and he did so. Now he does the regular podcasts and sometimes he does these videos and is really cool https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gIQva_w3KEE&t=1s check out his website, he's new but growing. Maybe Odysseus can do something similar, doing podcasts and every now and then a video with a wild colony of carnivorous plants, that would be fantastic.
  7. That's great to hear. I like the colored logo with the green/blue vft. It's simple and not overkill and it looks cool, I really like it.
  8. Growing CP in cotton

    There might be some problems with this: too wet for some CP, attracts fungi, clumps up on the roots. You can do an experiment with 1 plant and see how it goes but i suspect it might not work.
  9. Mine was nepenthes hybrid "Linda" and a typical VFT ( the vft died because i didn't know how to properly care for it ). The nepenthes Linda survived to this day and has grown pretty large.
  10. My VFT collection pics

    can you show ruler next to the traps? From this picture they look like half your hand xD
  11. from my experience it's usually 2 days, maximum 3 days.
  12. How my vft's are doing now!

    Looks good! It's nice to see all traps open, mine don't have traps open more than a day or two, some fly, spider or other insect will get caught, since i keep mine outside.
  13. It's all good, take your time ( can't wait tho )
