Thanks! So far none. Keeping the fingers crossed. I keep it only around normal humidity level for the most part, because it is also my bedroom (lol). The only thing I do for extra humidity are pebble trays and a daily misting. I do worry about mold potentially developing though. In summer I always have the windows open and most these plants are outside, so winter is when I mainly worry.
Thanks willy! Haha, yeah it's kinda crazy-busy, but I like it. Everyday there's always something new going on, or something to do. It's my therapy from the world~ and my lab? I can experiment with all kinds of plants, since I'm still relatively new with uncommon non-box store plants. I'll be starting a horticulture program this year, so I guess it'll be a study space too!
That's really awesome. My grow space is my therapy from the world too, I always enjoy spending time with my plants. I wish I have a grow room like you do! Perhaps in the future, my plants will not only live in my bedroom...! Willy

what genus cultivate you ( Other than carnivores )?
may be : dorstenia, ant plant, amorphophallus , terrestrial orchid ?
Lol Ali baba cavern? That's the first time I heard that. 😂 Hm, I guess it's a bit of everything. I'm trying out different types. I do love orchids, but most of mine are small as I bought them as flasks. I only have two terrestrials orchids, but I would love to try Ophrys. I have a lot of Gesneriads as it's a plant family I enjoy. I also like Oxalis and am trying to collect them. It was pretty neat when I found out Cephalotus was more closely related to Oxalis than I thought. Very neat to find two plants I enjoy are relatives. For the most part though, I enjoy rainforest-type plants. Reminds me of the ones that grew in my grandmother's home in the Philippines. I think it would be neat to specialize in Philippine plants one day, if I get good enough. I have only one amorphophallus, and I didn't do too well with it last year. Hopefully I do better this year. I have some Dorstenia seedlings that need to be repotted soon. And I've never had an ant plant, but hopefully one day. I don't know too much about them yet and don't want to get one until I'm more familiar with them.👍
I see what you mean by Ali baba! Lol it's like my secret treasure stash, indeed.
Ihave a lot of family in the Philippines. I guess I'm not too sure if anyone I know there knows of sources of ant plants or amorphophallus. I found that when staying there, people just have all those plants we see as so exotic as being like weeds. Lol I have some aunts growing jade vines and I hope to get seed of that.
I have dorstenia elata seedlings. I think they're supposed to be the easiest kind. When I get better at caring for them, maybe I'll try a rarer kind. 😬☺️
I honestly just forgot about this pot because I thought the seeds were maybe not viable. It's a South African Oxalis stennorhyncha baby, harvested from one seed pod my adult plant developed. It's pretty tiny. Cousin to the Cephalotus! I planted it 10.29 and I imagine it would have probably sprouted faster if I had stratified it...
Some seedlings of Norfolk Island pine, Araucaria heterophylla. I love the pine smell of the seeds husks...:x
Seedlings of Anthurium gracile. I harvested them from my adult plant, that which was grown from a few berries from a botanical garden in Germany. I love how this plant grows. The common anthurium is epiphytic as well, but I love how it's "very epiphytic" in the sense that I plan on mounting the adult on some cork. I didn't think my adult was really an adult...it's kinda small. I barely see this plant around so I'm glad it's producing and germination is easy. Then maybe it can become a bit less rare.
