    Thanks, Iwest!

    Re circling: thermals are like invisible dust devils. To stay in one, you need to do like NASCAR, and go around, and around, and around, and...... The hard part is staying IN the dang thing-- it's invisible. If I get high enough I get sick of going in circles, and start doing figure eights. I did a bunch in the video, just before I lost the thermal and fell out of the sky.

    The cobra was another experiment. I know they grow on cliffs in the wild, and I just happened to have a "cliff" handy, made of bamboo slats lashed together. The plant never slowed down, and even turned several pitchers to face the wall. Did you see the clumps of Utricularia graminifolia on the "wall"? It is blooming, and the scapes are longer than I have ever seen a grammi. make. Woot! If there is a Genlisea out there that likes intermediate/highland conditions, I'll fir sure put some of it on the "wall", too.

    Moooooooore pictures!

    Here's an update on my Drosophyllum. Here is what it was like this spring:




    And today:








    We really need a dew-of-the-month contest:






    The Utricularia gramminifolia on the fountain has opened up a flower. I have never seen a grammi make so many stalks, with so many flowers on each. I must be doing something right.




    More pictures of my little N. robcantleyii:






    And a couple baubles. I love these, wish I had more.

    I've been missing out with getting behind on this thread. Nice stuff. That's an especially nice Droso (Drosos?) And you're right, Lil, we do need a 'Dew of the Month' thread. All we would need would be someone to host it ...

    Thanks, guys!


    I wish I could run DotM! I'm not sure I have the time, though. I had an idea that probably won't ever fly: Have a ___otM contest for each category. Each month's winner gets kept, and entered in a ___otY contest. Then, perhaps, the categories compete, and we get a super picture of the year. Just thinking.


    Maxima, I have had the Droso. for two years, I think. I got it when it was approximately a year old (I didn't ask). Let's call it three years old.
