    Nothing is on the top tier, now.

    Heavy rain and high winds - I can't tell you how many pygmy Drosera pups I've lost to those weather conditions. Usually I'll try to bring the pots in but you can't always be around or plan ahead when it happens.

    Is that one of the Darlingtonia I sent you? Looking pretty good. How did your running water cultivation turn out?
    Grand Hotel... always the same. People come, people go. Nothing ever happens.

    That is indeed one of the survivors from you. The cold running water experiment was "good on paper", but I wasn't counting "critters" stealing the LFS and overturning and scattering the plants. I was disappointed that it neither flowered nor put out a stolon.

    Some are doing well. Some are struggling. A couple died. Most are basically responding to being in the growing season and I hope that in a month the Sarracenias & VFT's will look more full, as well as the butterworts having more color.

    Either I'm screwing something up, or your just a lot better at this growing thing than I am. I think maybe.. BOTH!
    Hard to say... but that's your live LFS in the one pot. I am still very much a student of this hobby, learning a lot by much trial and error, supplemented by the wisdom of others.... that and doing this on a "shoestring budget!

    Are you using a new/different camera?
    Same camera. I sowed devil claw seeds several weeks ago, just scattering them on the surface. Weeks later I could see that seedcoats swelled.... and robbed of the cotyledon. A couple weeks ago I sowed some more, and like last year, I pushed the seeds into the soil. Hopefully, I will get some action soon.

    Some of those pygmy dews came from you... particularly the callistos.
