  1. Sundews? I have Sphagnum cuspidatum.
  2. I bought spaghmum moss, but apparently the seller used tap water.,... o_o I didn't even know that wsa possible.... Is there a way I can make the spaghmum safe to use for carnivorous plants ? ? ?
  3. Interesting! I am finding capensis, and some of the rosetted ones quite attractive.
  4. Yay!! They will bloom under good conditions. I have my livida (THe only one I have after I moved) in light shade, but I haven't seen any flowerstalks yet (They are recovering from when I went on vacation and they dried out... EEK!). I'll move them to a terrarium so I can flood them like I did before I moved. Some utrics flower after you flood them slightly. Though its hard to do in a terrarium.
  5. Just wondering :) I don;t have any yet, I'm going to get a bunch of capensis when I have enough budget. What's your favorite sundew? You can choose to decide in categories such as ones listed below if you can't decide.. - The leaves - The blooms etc.
  6. I've always loved terrariums, and I had a bunch of moss ones before I got obsessed with Utricularia. Depending on the time of the year my "interest" in plants shifts, so I have quite a variety of jars and such. I grow my utricularia (terrestrials :>, they are less expensive, LOL) in spaghmum and perlite. I have a few in fishbowls (Please do NOT put your fish in them, it is too small for fish!!) from Dollar Stores (I am in the U.S., not sure if your local dollar stores or dollar trees have these glass containers). Here is some question and answer for selecting container, noone asked me these questions but I thought it might help: Q: Does it need to have drainage? A: No. Utricularia like to stay moist the whole time, so it doesn't really matter... Q: Does it have to be glass? A: No. Ceramic would also work. Avoid terracotta that is unglazed and just will leak out water and salts. I would also avoid plastic because I don't like the look, BUT, I have seen thick plastic bowls that have lovely colors in local stores, and you could use those. You could probably do drainage holes in those too. Q: Can it be fully enclosed? A: Well, it depends on what species. Depends on the height too. A lot of the terrestrial utrics have pretty tall flowerstalks so if the container is too short and it is fullly enclosed, unless you open it, they would get really tangled. Probably yes for some of the shorter-bloom-stalk species and larger jars. Q: Small opening (Like a fat wine bottle, or the shape of a milk jug), or big opening (Like big jar of pickles, or shape like big bucket A: Both are fine. I think big opening ones are easier to set up and maintain.
  7. You may want to loook for some misters??? I've seen electronic ones at local Targets, but that's in the U.S. I'm pretty sure you can find a few cheap ones for like 10-20 dollars on amazon. You'd just put them in a jar of water and it would make fog.. Not sure if that would be what you want, but it would also look cool I guess.
  8. Haha, I was looking on collecting U. Bisqs and Lividas In what substrate should I germinate bisqs in? I don't think I will have problems with growing them , just getting them to sprout, LOL.
  9. Hello. I am sorry for asking this question because I am pretty sure I am not in UK. If you dont think it's ok, I will delete my account. Anyways I was wondering where you all get utricularia seeds, specifically terrestrial ones. (I am in the U.S.) Also, any tips on germinating them? Again, sorry for being here, I cant find much information in other places...
