Gallery online!

I’ve set up a photo gallery software on the site. If you are a registered user, you can log in and upload photos of your plants (or whatever, but be reasonable. :) into the photo gallery. Click the “Gallery” link under “Modules” on the left side of the page to access it.

TBCPC-talk mailing list live!

The TBCPC-talk mailing list has been created as a public list for general discussion among Carnivorous Plant enthusiasts. It’s primarily focused on Florida, but anyone is welcome to join. Visit the list subscription page for more information.

The new TBCPC.org is live!

I apologize that I had to reinstall the code today, so if you had created an account before then, it got deleted and you’ll have to re-create it.
However, it also means that I’m about finished with all the configuring and fine-tuning of the site, which means that the new site is now officially open for business!
Hurrah!

My Homemade Bog Garden

This is a little bog garden I made on my back patio this year. It’s made up of $1.95 decorative blocks from Home Depot and some UV-resistant construction plastic.

Photos taken near the end of the year, so lots of plants are going dormant.
