Growing Outdoors in New Mexico

Recommended Posts

Hello, ;)

Here are my efforts at outdoors CP growing in a desert region.

My minibog shows excellent progress. :)

From late spring or early summer:

N. Lady Pauline - look at the leftmost leaf. It got eaten by the rainbow grasshopper! I was able to rescue it from the hungry insect just in time.

Hi Jimmy,

nice that they are growing so good for you.

What Pinguicula are you growing there, to me it seem to be a north american Pinguicula.

Also nice cacti seedlings. :tu:

Best regards,

Dani

Looking good Jimmy! The mini bog is certainly progressing well. Im glad I dont have to worry about grasshoppers eating my nepenthes :sun_bespectacled:

Looks like a nice open mix that you're using for your nepenthes too.

Thanks Heather!

Soon enough winter will be here and there will be no more troublesome grasshoppers!

And yes, I am leaning more towards more aggregate-based Nep mixes and starting to move away from peat and LFS. It's a very slow process. :sun_bespectacled:
