    I didn't have enough battery power to photograph the Sarracenias, but I got a lot of nice shots of the greenhouse progress last week!

    These seeds were sown back in mid-June....... Who says fertilization is bad?

    Osmocote or root feeding, and a 1/4 diluted orchid fertilizer in a spray bottle for foliage feedings. As you can see it works quite well. I only use the spray fertilizer on my seedlings and they grow slightly slower. Osmocote works wonders.

    Thanks! Well, I am an art major. The Sarrs are actual all in our sale/cultivation beds. We let sedges and other plants grow with them so they look more natural, plus we sell some of those too.

    HaHa!! I am one of those crazies that would buy those commensal plants as well for the sake of "realism". I can't wait to get my own house when I can make a bog and greenhouse.

    I buy them, too. SOme of the sedges have really unique flowers. The bog orchids are pretty cool, too. I'm going to be doing the same thing when i rescape my gecko's terrarium this winter/spring, some small Nepenthes, sundews, Utrics, and some tropical plants that like the same conditions.
