    D. muscipula & D. muscipula 'Red Dragon'(barely)

    Sarracenia leucophylla(seedling)

    S. purpurea and Drosera filiformis filiformis/ intermedia seeds waiting to sprout.

    I bought one the other day(Sat.) at a nursery while buying nep soil ingredients.
    It looks like it flowered before I got it. Anyone know how often they flower?
    I always suspect everything is a trap....thats why I'm still alive

    Times fun when you're having flys

    Mine is flowering again, so I'm guessing it flowers once a year.

    Larry it must be a "pup" (baby) that is flowering as all Bromeliads, which includes Tillandsias, only ever flower once. Bromeliads flower then produce pups and eventually the parent plant dies, this can take a long time, even a year or more. I have had Broms produce pups without flowering but I have yet to have one that has flowered more than once.

    I have several T harisii that are flowering now but the flower isn't very spectacular.

    Cheers, Troy.

    Troy, I think you are correct. It has made several pups, but separating them from the parent plant looks to be a little tricky.

    Spec: have a look at my signature!
    Those are my two web sites.

    Larry: if it's flowering then sometime after it will produce mroe pups. The trick is to give the plant plenty of fertiliser when it's flowering and continue afterward. It will then produce more pups. I find that fertilising makes the plant produce 2 to 3 times as many pups than if I don't.
    Re separating the pups, unless you want to have separate plants for a particular reason I usually leave them. When they are really big they almost fall apart, otherwise they look kind of cool as a little ball of plants.

    Cheers, Troy.
