    Two new additotions to my collection

    I have recently ordered and received these two plants

    Drosera intermedia :


    D. intermedia by gillza, on Flickr

    It is still small. But there are two plants instead of one It came wrapped in LFS and I repotted it into washed and peroxide sterilised 50:50 peat:sand mix. Some leave started producing dew the next day
    What is that green moss growing on the right side? It is not sphagnum,.. too dry.



    Utricularia sandersonii


    It came as a 1" by 1" plug. Potted into 50:50 sandeat mix. Some of the leaves started to turn yellow but I'm hoping that the plant will pull through.

    What can I feed it with?

    Nice! They both look very healthy. I don't think you have to worry about feeding for utrics.

    Not sure what the moss is, but I have it growing all over my terrariums. It should, eventually, spread all over the soil of the pot and you'll get a nice green carpet for your D. intermedia. Beautiful plants! Good luck on your growing!

    Thank you for the replies. An interesting thing that I noticed was that the plug of U. sandersonii came without any traps on the roots. Looked like that part of the root system was torn off.

    The utric should grow new roots in no time. Your intermedia looks nice. Just wait until it turns dark red.
