    AshG's CP photos

    Today might as well have been Christmas for me! Just about everything showed up all at once!

    Packaging:


    First, my original VFT (death cube style)


    My new one, so much bigger and healthier!


    Good sized traps


    Next, my new Sarracenias, left to right (S. Judith Hindle, S. Rubra, and S. Leucophylla)


    S. "Judith Hindle"


    S. Rubra


    D. Spatulata


    Another:


    AND...Pinguicula Moctezumae


    The rest of my VFT's (bulk bunch) should be here next week! I also received some S. Purpurea seeds and several batches of Drosera seeds.

    D. Venusta
    D. Natalensis
    D. Capensis (typical)
    D. Spatulata "Frasier Island"

    Today was a fantastic day!

    Nice plants! Hope there are many more to come and looking forward to pic updates. It is a slippery slide into addiction now, looks like you are hooked.

    and you're off and running. Nice start.. You may want to get those sarrs and ping into a peat based mix though.

    Everything is in peat moss/perlite mix with the Sphagnum on top, you can see it on the side of the Ping. picture if you look closely. I put a little sphagnum on the bottom of the net pots to keep it in there, but the rest is peat/perlite with a topping of sphagnum.

    Thanks! I did a lot of reading after getting my first death cube one, then before I ordered any more, read more. Also was my good fortune that I picked up about 50# of sphagnum peat moss for $10 at Lowes, haha - I have so much of that stuff.
