Re: LIST FOR WHITE PLAINS

Don't you think selling histrionica at 2 months old is a little early?

Re: UVB Light - its pros/ cons

I use those puck lights for UVB source and hot spot in Phelsuma enclosure when I'm not keeping them outside, and I've seen one melt the plastic on top of an exo. No way I'd use one of those for frogs. Most of us down here use Arcadia UVB tubes over various histrionica, sylvatica, and both silverston...

Re: Jim from Austin's frog wall

Jim, sorry that I've been MIA for a bit. I don't think the things you're seeing are Selaginella reproductive structures. The little tree-like things definitely look like moss to me. There may be some strobili in the second photo far left, but it's hard to tell for sure from the photo if it is that o...

I have put together a couple of packages for people and have one more large one that I can sell. You will get cuttings (some rooted, others fresh) of the following: Syngonium erythrophyllum Philodendron verrucosum Begonia polliloensis Pilea sp. Ecuador "cf. hitchcockii" Diastema luteola Ma...

Re: epiphyte recommendations for large vivarium

It grows at a steady pace for me. I started off with one ~6" piece, and I had a nice 5ish growth plant within a year. It's not something that I trimmed often but it also isn't invasive, which is nice. One thing to note on it, this species seems to love being very humid but resents water sitting...

Re: epiphyte recommendations for large vivarium

You likely won't get blooms from the Columnea in viv (at least I haven't). It's rumored to need a pretty significant seasonal change to trigger flowers, but it is probably the most spot on for your cascading look. You can usually get it at Violet Barn. Both of the Sphyrospermums can be hard to find....

Re: epiphyte recommendations for large vivarium

Marcgravias are a great genus of plants for vivs, but you don't want to use it there. If Marcgravias are not given something to grow up, they grow very funky. My recommendations are Sphyrospermum cordifolium or cf. buxifolium, Columnea microphylla, Peperomia fagerlindii or even the sp. Costa Rica th...

Phil, I didn't even consider the individual pages in my estimate of 20. There are an immense number of pages. I have one of those of my own, but it is primarily an outlet for pictures that my "normal" friends and family don't care to see. The ~20 I'm talking about are individual, active gr...

My friend and I were talking earlier this week, and through that conversation, it finally dawned on me the negatives of Facebook and this hobby. It has little to do with searchability of information or FB owning my pictures, etc. It's that the hobby and all aspects of irate in your face constantly a...

Re: Why "Bakers Racks" for large sized Dart Frog collections ?

There was a fellow in the PNW who had a rack failure that cost him a nice collection of frogs. I used the baker's racks for a while but with my most recent move, built stands out of 2x4's and 2x6's. We painted them black and included hinged flaps to hide the lighting on the lower shelf. This is the ...

Re: ideas on managing limited founders stock

I would swap males.

Also, keep in mind that offspring from both females in 2016H are >/= 75% related, so I would manage them in the future as if all offspring out of that tank are full siblings.

Re: D tinctorius True Sipaliwini lines and management

While we as hobbyists recommend against ID'ing based on phenotype, I think if anyone is capable it's folks like Brice Noonan (tincs), Kyle Summers and labmates (Ranitomeya), Justin Yeager (pumilio) and a few others. They've spent a significant amount of time in the field and actually have a handle o...

Re: D tinctorius True Sipaliwini lines and management

Normally, I am very much on the side of managing to maintain "vintage" lines within the hobby, but I am going to provide a possibly dissenting opinion on these. The NAIB frogs all originate from a single pair collected by national aquarium some years ago, and the '12-13 True sips originate...

Re: Pay it forward: advice on setting up a breeding program

Yes, Escudo is another that just seems to never take hold and be offered on any regular basis besides WC. It's one of the few species/locales I'd still like to add to the list of frogs I work with.
