    Great plants, great pics! In addition to the excellent carnivores I like the Calceolaria and the irises.

    The pot your Darlingtonia is planted in presents it very well - I like it.

    Moooooore pictures! OK, maybe not that many more, just a few.

    I went to the potluck at "a place nearby", and had a blast! I made more rice stuffed Nepenthes, and I'd like to say they were a huge hit. Peter D'Amato had some, and really liked them. I didn't take any pictures of the dish, sorry. We then enjoyed a (blessedly short- it was ROASTING in the GH that day) talk about pollinating Pinguicula and growing Aldrovanda. The back-back area was opened up, and I got to tour the kiddie pools and Sarracenia forest, along with the private collection. These pictures are all of just the collection.

    One experiment on the fountain (I'm starting to call the vertical portion the "ladder")-- The Utricularia gramminifolia is taking off like a rocket. I even have a couple flower stalks coming up. I thought I'd add to the ladder, and I tied a Darlingtonia to it with a bit of LSF. The cobra hasn't slowed down one bit, and it rotating all the soft new leaves toward the wall. Funny!












    A couple around-the-yard pictures. Now that I have finally locked the raccoons out of the pondarium I was able to put the Aldrovanda in it. And not a moment too soon: The waterwheels were down to one strand and one worry looking end piece. Now it's about five strands, each with new side-shoots popping nearly daily. Whew! And the traps are HUGE

























    Growing outside in the bog, Utricularia dichotoma:




    Lookit what Dory bought me!






    Tht-tht-tht-tht-- that's all folks!

    I COULD be mean and make you wait. I did deliberately use that picture, instead of the full front one. It's Sarracenia "Deep Throat" with a woman's painted-nailed fingers dropping in a roach. Specifically, that's Lau Hodges' hand, from the SF Conservatory, holding one of the infamous palmetto bugs. Look on the table in the next picture, it is there.
