    You were spot on with the D. glanduligera.

    Some plants from the garden, and then later, some plants from last weekend's hiking.

    Dionaea muscipula 'Long Red Fingers' putting up flower spikes.


    The Ceph is still sulking


    My first sarracenia: S. purpurea ssp purpurea X courtii


    My other first sarracenia: 'formosa'


    Drosera hamiltonii


    The red pellets are slug bait.

    EDIT: and photobucket is being a **** so the image sizes are all over the place - it should sort itself out in a bit though.

    I took a nice photograph of the Ceph this morning and decided to put a time line together of its life with me.

    That timeline is pretty cool. It's fun to see the progress but sad to see the bird attack. I am glad it has recovered so well. I agree with corky - they are much tougher than given credit for.

    We caved in and bought some plants out of pity today from the local hardware store. Also had a chat to them about the conditions they were keeping the carnivorous plants and orchids in - completely uninterested in keeping them alive, just interested in selling them as fast as possible.

    The first is a magnificent white Phalaenopsis sp. of some sort. It is HUGE compared to my first phal.


    It's also not in terribly good condition. The new plant is the one on the left - it's looking a bit chlorotic and wilted compared to the magnificently green and turgid (and scarred) leaves on the right.


    We also picked up two Drosera that I don't already own - I suspect capensis and spatulata. What do you think?

    Capensis, yes, and it may be D. spatulata on the right, but I'd almost bet money it's D. x tokaiensis instead.
    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.

    Nice new phalaenopsis! I think the new one looks quite healthy. My healthiest phals were always that nice shade of lime green, but I imagine genetics has its part to play with coloring as well.

    More about my luck with phals: I love growing them oriented side ways ( i.e. naturally oriented) in hanging baskets full of dried sphagnum moss. Might give it a go if you feel like experimenting.

    Great CPs, too!
