    That mutant flower reminds me of Darlingtonia. And that is a gorgeous robcantleyi! Now I just have to convince mine to gain some size.....
    Everything has a reason, whether big or small. Never underestimate the power of what is or is not.
    There is far more to everything than meets the eye.

    That robcantleyi is incredible, but that Drosophyllum is also a beast! Looks fantastic! I'm just sowing my seeds, any tips?

    I nip off the small end of the seed with fingernail clippers then sow them in small peat pots full of vermiculite under bright lights. I keep them trayed and covered until they are an inch or two tall. I then remove the lid but, still keep them moist. Once the seedlings are 3"-5" tall, I plant them in their permanent pots in a mix of 1:1:1: sand, vermiculite and, either perlite or aps. I water them at least once a week for the first few months until the roots establish themselves. After the plant is acclimated to it's pot, it only needs water once or twice a month. I also add a layer of coarse gravel to the top of the permanent pot, it helps to disperse water and keeps the sandy mix from eroding.

    Thanks Graham. That one on display at the show, while enormous was not very attractively colored. Mine is darkening by the day, I'll post more pics once it fully colors up. Brie and Jeremiah were trying to convince me to bring it, maybe I should have listened to them...

    No problem. You don't live too far away, so it wouldn't have traumatized it too much by moving it. It might have won an award if you brought it. That monster specimen looked kind of dirty, like a potato. Oh well, there's always next time. I kind of wish I brought something, too.
