After butchering my starter kit from **********.com, and watching the tiny weak specimens from ************* die on me, I've decided that this month would be a great time to make another attempt! I've learned a lot by my past blunders, and I think these new plants will live long and prosper!
Here are photos of my order. It was shipped from the Northwest *wink* and some Sarracenia *wink* were included in the order.
From left to right, back row: S. 'Judith Hindle', VFT 'Typical', VFT 'Dente', D. graminifolia, D. spatulata 'Frasier Island', D. spatulata
Left to right, front row: S. 'Ladies in Waiting', VFT 'Red Dragon', S. flava, VFT 'Typical', D. aliciae, D. adelae
That's the majority of my order. The pots without tags were plants I already had.
Those are my Nepenthes I ordered.
Left to right: ramispina, maxima, bicalcarata (teeth!), truncata (with it's unique leaves), and sanguinae
My other plants on the windowsill. A young N. rafflesiana, and a P. cyclosecta, which I'm obsessed with right now.
D. aliciae closeup. My current favorite Drosera.
Both varieties of D. spatulata.

Showing my tiny N. bicalcarata's characteristic fangs. >;-D
Do you think I'm making a huge mistake trying to keep a bicalcarata on my kitchen windowsill? I've heard that it pretty much requires high humidity, but I don't feel like messing around with fishtanks and fungus again. It's been on the sill for three days now, and the leaves show no signs of wilting.
