    Plants are coming alive!

    Things have been warming up here in Rhode Island, and the plants have been waking up from the long winter.

    A Drosera rotundifolia in the Great Swamp, the first one up for the year.

    My capensis is finally putting out nice colorful leaves, the pale ones can be seen in the background.

    As soon as the weather turned the sanguinea has been putting the pitchers out left and right. This little thing is a beast.

    Finally, my N. truncata "Pasian Highland" recently put this pitcher out that it has been inflating all winter long. I'm surprised at how much more developed it is compared to the last pitcher.

    I also have a S. purpurea from Lowes that is taking a long time to come out of dormancy. Is this normal? I've noticed since I've started watering now it is getting a bit of color.

    Nice to see everything coming to life. If your place has longer winters than their native habitat they will wake up later, my flava has just woken up and is sending up it's first pitcher of the season.

    I'm pretty sure there are some purps growing back in the Great Swamp where I found the sundews.

    Thanks for the compliments guys!
