    Some Greenhouse Shots

    Paid a visit to the greenhouse this afternoon, to check on the young Sarracenia I get to keep in there over winter, after experiencing a little taste of winter to put them to sleep. Here are some pics:


    Some seeds I got off Ebay just starting to germinate: S. oreophila x "Toadmaster"



    some more seeds, just starting to germinate: S. "Medusa" x flava



    Here is a seed-grown Sarracenia, flowering 3 years and 1 month after it germinated. It is an open-pollinated S. oreophila x 'willisii'.



    Here is a 1-year-old S. purpurea seedling, from wild-collected seed near Drummond, WI, waking up from its first dormancy.



    Another 1-year-old seedling, waking up. Don't know which one this is. This is one that pretty much looked dead when I moved it into the greenhouse, but after a few weeks, new growth sprouts from the dead-looking plant.



    Here's another that, 3 weeks ago, many people probably would've tossed it. It looked completely dead. It is a 1-year-old rubra gulfensis "red" x open-pollinated.



    Another 1-year-old seedling. S. leucophylla x willisii. Already, the first pitcher is nearly twice as tall as last year's pitchers.



    A break from the Sarracenia. This is Nepenthes gracilis x bicalcarata. The thing was nearly dead about a year ago, but has rebounded nicely. The WI-native cranberries sure like the conditions.




    N. 'Judith Finn'




    N. copelandii. I noticed some Drosera binata are starting to invade this pot.




    A Sarracenia flower bud emerging




    S. courtii x minor, flower bud and new pitcher emerging



    An unknown purpurea hybrid waking up, along with Drosera filiformis, as well as the pesky white violets that I can't get rid of, no matter how hard I try.




    Bud emerging on S. 'Doreen's Colossus'

    Very nice. This makes me anxious for my Sarracenia to start doing ANYthing.

    They look great, and those Sarracenia seedlings are really lovely, too bad most CP's mature slow

    Wow! I'll have to check my Sarrs when the 6 inches of snow melts! And stratify some seeds.
