    The plant I'm most proud of growing this year is: ____________

    For me, it's the fact that I still have some VFT's alive. I've killed more than I care to admit, and...well, I still have some alive! Here's my VFT/cobra/temperate-dew minibog - it's winter sleep time, but I'm still pretty darn proud!

    I'm pretty proud that I've kept my U. campbelliana alive and well. Congragulations on the VFTs, I can't even keep them alive for 1 month.

    I'm feeling pretty good about a number of plants, but my Neps probably take #1 for this year because they took quite a licking when I moved last winter and have come back stronger than ever. Not sure which specimen I'm proudest of - my N. eymae which is on the verge of its first uppers after springing up to about six feet tall, my baby N. lowii that are chugging right along, or my more mundane N. sanguinea which grew over seven feet, made uppers, lost the uppers in an unfortunate shelf mishap, and then continued to grow like a champ despite the physical trauma and subsequently being topped for cuttings. Also doing pretty well with the succulents I was gifted earlier this year, except of course for the ones that kicked the bucket. XD (Only like 10-15% of them, but I'm definitely learning by trial and error...)
    Also could go to my newfound success with rooting cuttings:

    This is N. alata x maxima, which has been the easiest so far.

    For me it's a toss up between the U. longifolia and the U. gibba, both flowering for me for the first time:

    Seedjar: Interesting that you split the cutting into quarters to allow more surface area for roots to grow. I only JUST started doing this after it was recommended by another member. Good to see the results of doing this.

    I am thrilled that m Pinguicula gigantea is thriving! I have tried at least three times prior to this and the plants always died. Also proud that my S. 'Leah Wilkerson' didn't just do well, but made 2 new growth points!

    I'm just glad that I haven't killed anything, and every plant I have is improving or holding steady.

    I am most proud of my N. ventrata. It's actually not my favorite plant, but it's by far my most vigorous @ 6 feet, and growing! It's only about two years old.
