    Just a few photos from today. A lot is starting to grow now only thing I haven't seen any sign of new growth from is my Leucophylla titan.

    First diana's delight starting to send up new pitchers. I have high hopes for this plant, if it gets anything the size of the pitcher it had when I got it from my local nursery I will be satisfied.

    Flava #1 sending up a new pitcher. It is starting to send up more from other spots.

    Flava #2 sending up a bunch of new pitchers. Not as tall as the other one though. No flowers from these guys this year I guess.

    My purpureas are looking miserable but they are both starting to show signs of life. First one is putting out a new leaf finally. The other one looks a little bit better and I can see a new leaf starting to push itself out of the dormant buds sarracenia form but it is hard to see so I don't have a photo

    Doreen's Colossus putting out a flower. I have high hopes for this plant .

    Sarracenia Alata(?) putting out some new pitchers. I don't like alatas but it was the only plant that survived an outdoor winter last year, it's a tough plant so I'm going to keep it

    Filiformis tracyi and Filiformis "all red". Not much to say they are growing :P


    Three Filiformis "Florida Giant" buds on the left, a Dente Flytrap on the right (from DJ57 Thanks!). The Flytrap also is planted in the same pot as my Drosera binata multifida "extrema", however that has died down to the roots, and admittedly I keep uprooting them out of impatients, which probably broke off some of the new growth. So in order to stop that I put the flytrap in the pot so I don't get the urge to unpot them. If I do I would probably be hurting the flytrap which I don't want to do.

    Red Dragon Flytrap. Hard to see the tiny new growth point so I circled it.

    Typical Flytrap putting out new leaves.

    B-52s plus a Filiformis "Florida giant".

    Nepenthes truncata, Drosera Spatulata and Drosera Capensis. The Truncata is the only nepenthes I have that isn't reacting to the direct sunlight or the cold nights.

    Nepenthes sanguinea being weird as always. I might repot it into peat/perlite.

    Nepenthes Miranda. For how "easy" these are supposed to be it really spazzes out when I put it outside.

    Nepenthes Ventricosa. The cold weather didn't effect it as much as my miranda.

    All your plants looking good! I am confident your binata will come back, just may be later in the spring/early summer depending on temps. I have had them pop back up in the middle of summer after I thought they were gone and planted other things around them. It does not take much of a root for these guys to grow.

    Can't wait to see pics of your plants later in the growing season.

    Yeah I'm very excited about the Florida giants you sent me. I love dewthreads they are such good sundews for me.

    Some new photos.

    S. x "Doreen's Colossus"

    S. Purpurea with some small, but new growth

    S. "Extreme Green", D. Filiformis Tracyi, D. Filiformis "All Red". Both drosera had old leaves killed from some cold weather a few weeks back but they are growing back now.

    S. Purpurea, VFT "Dente", and maybe you can see the few D. Spatulata growing in with the vft.

    VFT "Akai Ryu", VFT typical, VFT "B52", and some D. Filiformis "Florida Giant", which this hard working dewthread is quickly becoming my favorite sundew.

    2x S. Flava, S. Leucophylla "Titan", and S. "Diana's Delight". The latter two not doing too much.

    S. Alata/Rubra, S. Minor "Okee Giant", D. Capensis, D. Spatulata (which are spreading to my other pots for the first time in 3 years)

    N. Miranda. Was getting tired of waiting so I cut it off after almost all of it browned up but there seems to be something black growing, or maybe it's just blackened growth, but I potted it up anyway lets see what happens.

    Just coming back growing season is right around the corner and I am super excited. Anyway since last time all of my nepenthes died. I forgot to bring them in one night and they got frozen and all died I'm not too upset though because they took up a lot of space and seemed to prefer conditions I couldn't provide all of the time.

    Anyway nothing much so far, here is my most impressive plant right now, my bigger sarracenia purpurea:


    Next we have my sarracenia Okie Giant, didn't grow to well last year but it's alive and the crown looks pretty good from what I see. In the center is what used to be my drosera spatulatas. I read they can survive temperate conditions so I figured don't really mind if I lose them why not try. There are definately sundews growing in there now, not sure if any of them are spatulata's though, one of them is a filiformis for sure. And finally in the square pot is what used to be a drosera capensis. It looks like it was another casualty . Never grew that well for me though, was very picky.


    Next is my pots of VFTs, some filiformis species, and in the bottom right is the other purpurea I had. All the VFT's look really good, I don't think you can really see them they are in the ground a bit. The Drosera filiformis (all are Florida giants) all look great, they have little green hybernicula. The purpurea has been struggling since last summer. We had very little rain last year so a few of my pots dried out, and that was one of them. Not sure if it's going to make it but I'm trying because if I can get another one like the picture earlier I would be really happy.


    Now my prized sarracenias, I LOVE flavas. In the front middle is my doreen's colossus, looks great, very happy it pulled through because it was absolutely amazing last year, and the two in the back are plain flavas, they are filling up the pots very nicely. I counted 3 flower buds on each of the flavas and 1 on my doreen's colossus.


    Finally we have a sarracenia "extreme green", looks great, and in the square pot next to it is two drosera filiformis, one is a tracyi, and one is an all red. One of them doesn't look like it survived, not sure which one it is yet.





    Anyway, thanks for looking.

    Yeah, looking back at how miserable it looked 11 months ago it's really come a long ways.

    Some more interesting photos this time.


    TOP LEFT: My typical fly trap died off, using the pot for a filiformis tracyi and two dichotoma giants.
    TOP CENTER: Red dragons coming back strong.
    Bottom left: A filiformis Florida giant and the B52s coming back. They are really small though
    Bottom center: A bunch of Florida giants, these were the sundews I least expected to come back but all of them made it.
    Bottom right: S. Purpurea struggling, it's only got green by the very center of the plant.

    Here I have some unknown sundews growing. They were originally in the country crock but I pulled them out and put them in their own pot. Not sure what they are really, they are all red, and also wrap around their prey, which I was under the impression that filiformis species don't do that. Maybe a hybrid? These things are still popping up in my country crock pot too.

    Here is another filiformis growing in the country crock, this one looks a bit different it's not completely red like the others, and it doesn't wrap around it's prey. If you look hard enough you can see more of the red ones in there.

    S. Purpurea, the healthy one. Kinda weird I always thought plants turned more red when they got more sunlight, but these are turning greener and you can now see the veins. It looks like it has two crowns now. Very pretty plant.

    D. Filiformis "All red" seems to be struggling. It's growing new leaves but they don't get very tall, maybe just have to wait a bit longer. Oh and all those little red specks in the peat are more of these unknown drosera growing. They are everywhere.

    Finally my two S. Flavas and doreen's colossus. I love the flowers they are really cool, and I got the pitchers coming up quickly behind them.
