    Need a doctor for pings...

    Just an update on the ping rescue. I made up some new pots, went on an adventure to find some oyster shell. Made up a new substrate with less peat, more sand and shell. The P. Cyclosecta has responded unbelievably well. The next leaves were 2x the size. I also moved it down a shelf (so less...

    Need a doctor for pings...

    Just curious what next steps I should take for these two mexican pings (P. cyclosecta, P. ehlersiae) . I've had them for probably 2 years... and they appear to be in a very slow gentle decline (shrinking in size, but appearing healthy). They are both now about a quarter of the size I originally...

    how much to get started ??

    If you are going to go that small for a pressure cooker (6-8 qt), I'd look for a used instant pot. Lots of times around $60. Some can do 15 psi, most do around 12psi and just take a bit longer to sterilize. They are set and forget if you only need a couple quart jars at a time.

    Flow cabinet filter sources in Canada

    Yes, Gordotek is from the USA and I couldn't find the fan he suggested reasonably priced in Canada, but the alternate he suggested wasn't too bad. The filter was $30cad, fan $50, controller $20. Add a tote and some sealant and you aren't too far over $100cad. A lot smaller footprint than yours...

    Flow cabinet filter sources in Canada

    I'm going to be building one of these or in the near future. Smaller than you are looking for, but also cheaper. The 20x16 inch filters that Lloyd is using look nice.

    Hello from Victoria Bc

    Welcome fellow Victorian! Lots of super knowledgeable people both on this spit, and this site. I have some of Lloyd's legendary Utricularia gibba and will be happy to share when I get back to the island in a month, if you are interested.

    Hello from the BC Lower Mainland

    There is a bog trip being planned on the island (with multiple carnivorous plants) end of June. Might be worth the trip. Check in the events forum.
