Thank you for the compliments! These are the best of what I have leftover.
I lost Sarracenias & VFT's because the days of warmth at the beginning of March was followed by a cold snap that was colder than they could handle. I lost more than half of those plants, including nearly every leucophylla and the cutivars thereof, especially Schnell's Ghost & Hurricane Creek White. Those are hard to come by! I lost a lot of pygmys sundews when I transferred them from their existing pots to tall pots. The transition from inside to outside further decimated most of them. I only have a handfull left. Grow rack sundews also suffered. I'm guessing that they slowly died due to the creek water I was using. I have since gone back to the going through the 'red tape' of bringing home the expired purified water from work. I may also have to break down and get rid of the media I have and just start fresh. The utrics also declined but fared the least worst of the other major genera. I don't keep Nepenthes anymore. I just don't have the space, money, or facilities to do them justice. I've also determined that keeping cool, moist plants, like Helis, tubeorous sundews, and Drosphyllum are wasted on me. I just can't reproduce conditions for them.

I have no idea what that plant is or how it got there. Can anyone ID the VFT?
looks to me like a red dragon, but I'm not really a VFT expert so I'm not 100% sure. And as for the dew, as you may know, drosera seeds can take years to germinate; they can just sit there on the soil in a sort of inactive state until the environment changes/ allows them to germinate, so it's possible the seller of the original plant or soil somehow had a stray seed get in there. For example, I've had a certain Sarracenia/VFT bog for about 2-3 years, and just a couple weeks ago a D. intermedia seedling popped up. I have no intermedia in my collection at all so the seed certainly didn't come from me. Therefore I am left to believe that the seed came from the vendor of one of the plants in my bog or the soil.
Whatever it is, it's doing well. Maybe one day it will flower...
Your plants certainly don't look like "survivors," they are beautiful. Love that U. gibba tank!

I've had decent lighting on D. adelae before but they looked bronzed, with green still on its leaves. This is all red and appears to germinated from a seed. IDK....
GREAT growing Jim!
