Biggest news worth sharing with all of your friends and family? The CPR Artist Marketplace is live! Check out the awesome art and pick up something great for you or a friend while supporting the community and plant conservation. I don't think it gets any better than that!

New plants added:
Nepenthes edwardsiana - Teeth that you could slice bread with. Coincidentally, also the coolest thing since sliced bread.
Nepenthes robcantleyi x hamata - When a mommy plant and daddy plant love each other very much, sometimes you get a great hybrid.
--
Sarracenia oreophila - Beautiful, endangered, and likes to go to bed early.
Sarracenia x Leah Wilkerson - proof that nature runs the best multivariate tests.
--
Drosera filiformis - nature's anti-aircraft gun?
--
Audrey II - because April fools! Sometimes managing a plant website can offer a few giggles.
-------------------------
New blog posts:
Transplanting and repotting Nepenthes - We all know your Nepenthes is overdue for a repotting... help me help you. Learn from my mistakes, and get your Nepenthes transplanted with ease.
--
Launch of Carnivorous Plant Resource Artist Marketplace - because who wouldn't want to write a post about something so awesome?! Woo!

Hey, really appreciate your kind words. It is a lot of work, but it's a topic I love, so it's also a pleasure. - Also a great excuse for me to brush up on some of my own plant knowledge!

Hungry Plants wrote:I also love your website. Thow I would have thought there would be a propagation portion to each plant.
Hey, thanks! I have genus-level propagation info and try to break down differences in propagation techniques among some of the unique species that fall within a given genus. Take the sundew page, for example: https://carnivorousplantresource.com/th ... s/sundews/
But you're right, I probably could use propagation techniques on individual plant pages. Maybe as a future enhancement :)


...also, always looking for contributors! If I've omitted something you think is valuable for folks checking out the page, please feel free to get in touch with me to include it!

November 2018 Updates!

September-November is a crazy time of year, for me. I’m a Halloween nut, and took up the task of building a Haunted House, this year. Now that it’s all wrapped, and we’re past the ol’ Turkey Day, it’s back to our regularly-scheduled program! Enjoy!

New plants added:
Nepenthes albomarginata - Either the most fashionable Nepenthes, or the most religious... the white collar throws me off
Nepenthes ampullaria - Short, squat, and dabbling in vegetarianism
Nepenthes rafflesiana - A classic lowland high on my list
Nepenthes alata - Polymorphic, and half of the world's most popular Nepenthes hybrid
Nepenthes aristolochioides - A wee hunchbacked Nepenthes named after another plant because it's so funky, there's nothing else to compare it to
--
Venus flytrap "Gremlin" - just add water!

New blog posts:
Carnivorous Plants: A beginner's basic grow guide - A quick refresher for you, or a great link to send to your friend who has questions about growing that HomeDepot buy!
--
The cilia of the Venus flytrap - Let us all take a moment to enjoy one of the most iconic details of the Venus flytrap.
