I'm such a NOOB

The more I grow and experience in this hobby, the more I realize that my knowledge just barely scratches the surface. My latest quandary hasn't become an issue yet, but I want to address it before it becomes one.

What do you do when you have multiple pots of multiple varieties of plants (specificall Drosera), which are all flowering at the same time, from contaminating each other with seeds? I realise the obvious solution here ...

What are YOUR ideal conditions?

We've all heard it before: "The ideal conditions for this plant are blah blah blah blah blah" (imagine that like the trombone sound for adults talking in Charlie Brown and it'll make more sense).

I'm talking everything from growing plants outdoors to photoperiod inside, how ...

Shaky Hands, Poor Eyesight and Fumbly Fingers Seed Giveaway Shaky Hands, Poor Eyesight and Fumbly Fingers Seed Giveaway

Well, I was working with packetizing seeds that I have collected over the past month and had a stack of sheets of paper each one containing the seed harvest of different CP's sitting in my work area to process.

So I'm offering the seeds ...

Pomegranate cuttings for shipping [USA Only]

Hi all y’all,
My big pomegranate tree needed some major structural work this winter, so I’ve got a bunch of extra wood to get rid of this winter.

The variety is unknown, but is almost certainly Wonderful, the most commonly planted fruiting pomegranate around here. Even though my tree sets lots of fruit, I only get a handful each year because of major squirrel predation (grr...). The fruits I get are smaller than commercial pomegranates, ...

Is it a scape or inflorescence?

Help me out here smart people. What is the difference between a scape and an inflorescence? I can't make heads or tails of it, I've never studied botany before.

January Seed Giveaway

Hey guys!

I am planning on starting very soon a somewhat monthly seed giveaway. Mike has done a fantastic job with the seed bank, and I would like to pay it forward so that others can also benefit as I have when I first started last May. I'm going to be spending the next couple of days going through inventory to see what I have to work with, so..

stay tuned..
