    How bad are your winters? Still able to use the GH in the off season?

    yes the temps still get hot in the greenhouse in the winter (perfect for year round nep growing)
    The temps in the greenhouse are controlled by 2 thermostats to keep the temps between 90 and 70 degrees.
    Humidity I do not worry about and the plants seem fine besides the sediment buildup.

    If there is a high germination rate, I may do a giveaway or trade for the mirablis var echinostoma seeds. Stay tuned.

    Had to move the seeds away from the algae. Sprayed soil with physan 20 to rid of algae.
    I decided to get a 6 stage RO 150 gpd system to use for the misters and the plant water. It will be connected
    to a storage tank with a floating shut off valve.

    A miracle has happened...
    Several days ago I decided to pollinate a S. flava with some S. X readii leftover pollen.
    The next day, the flava flower stock snapped in half from traveling.
    I taped up the stem and thought to my self that there was no chance.
    Now, 5 days later the lower petals have fallen off and the ovary is noticably increasing in size!
    It appears that the plant is delivering nutrients through whats still left of the flower stalk.

    An old S. Oreophyla pitcher. This plant has been a little grumpy with me(gettin happier), but its deep veined pitchers never fail to impress!
    Photobucket

    This is the first venus flytrap I ever bought now putting up another flower shoot. Its been growing good ever since I was 11. I consider it, impressive
    Photobucket

    My extensive S minor S rubra hybrid (look at my grow list). Nice coloring inside the pitcher.

    Sarracenia X Swaniana pitcher (maybe a little purpurea var montana gene?)

    6 flowers in total of Sarracenia X readii. I will do a giveaway for all the seeds.
