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.
things are waking up nicely!
Top left - S. Flava
Top right- Doreen's Colossus
Bottom Left- S. Leucophylla "Hurricane Creek White"
Bottom Right- S. Flava
The flavas are about the same height as the Doreen's Colossus (a little shorter) but the Doreen's Colossus has pitchers twice as wide
S. Extreme Green putting out some twisted pitcher growth. In the square pot is some D. Spatulatas and D. Filiformis "All Red"
S. Purpurea. The red pitchers down below are from last year. I thought they were pretty big but these new pitchers are twice as big.
D. Binata "Dichotoma Giant" and D. Tracyi.
D. Tracyi x Filiformis. The green flytrap is a B52 and the red fly traps in the top row are red dragons. In the very far right below the brown pot is the S. Purpurea that got it's growth point eaten, I'm still hoping for the best.
S. Minor "Okee Giant". You can't really see it too well but at the very bottom left of the crown you can see a new pitcher finally growing. Also there is a new pitcher on the other side of the plant but I didn't really want to take two photos of it :P.
In the Country Crock is a random D. Filiformis that was popping up all over my pots. I sent a few to DJ57, we aren't sure what they are but one thing is for sure they get really really red. Almost a hot pink color.
Lastly in the square pot is a S. Flava Rupricorpa "best clone" or something like that. I think it's a seeding cross but I haven't really looked lol.
Also I have a S. "Leah Wilkerson" but the one pitcher it had open blew over because of the browning it got from being filled with bugs. The other pitcher didn't really develop, however it's sending up a new pitcher at this moment so I will put up a photo when that develops .
Thanks for looking.
sss your flavas are amazeballs!!!
Some new photos:
S. Leucophylla Hurricane Creek White Clone E from Michael Wang. No pitchers yet unfortunately, just been growing non carnivorous leaves, hopefully I'll get some stunning late season pitchers
S. Flava var Rubricorpora L x Best Clone from Michael Wang. Getting a little bigger maybe next year this thing will size up to my other flavas .
My flavas were amazing earlier this season but my purpurea is quickly becoming my favorite. Pitchers have doubled in size since last year.
And finally I have a few pitchers to show off my S. "Leah Wilkerson"
Also right next to that is a Nepenthes I found at my local nursury sitting in their green house next to the dying venus fly traps . I don't really care too much for nepenthes anymore but figured I would save this one. Not sure what kind it is but it's inflating two pitchers so I'll have an idea soon enough.
On a side note, looking at my flavas in that last picture they may need to be repotted next year LOL. Maybe.
Gotta love them purps, haha. As for repotting the flava...you think?
My CP Pictures
Grow List/Wish List/trade list at bottom
Visited a greenhouse about an hour and a half away from my house that had a huge CP collection.
A nepenthes tray. Never seen anything like this in real life it's kinda cool looking. These plants were hard to get apart :P
Some sarracenia, vfts, and butterworts:
Another table full of CPs. No close ups but you got more nepenthes, vfts, sarracenia, butterworts and sundews
And finally the reason I came . Hanging nepenthes baskets:
By the way, the owner Ted, really nice guy. Really loves his plants.
