That does look funny. Etiolated?
If you shake a rain stick, you get rain. I need a hamata stick.
The red/maroon pot in the background was the first plant I ordered with the broken growth points under the 2 clear cups. Sadly that little thing cost 5 dollars more than the one pictured.
Maybe you've got an incredibly rare "climbing form" of Cephalotus, and we're all going to want one!

Pretty. The blue coloration on that ping is stunning.
OK work delayed for weather, which means update time!
So I have been working on putting some Utricularia species into containers where I could view the traps and get the action from below ground. Similar idea with a corkscrew plant in Peter D'Amato's book was my inspiration.
And the unsuspecting bladderwort in these shots is U. longifolia
Here it is with the black duct taped outer cup replaced.
Here clockwise from the top is a NoID ping, some Drosera capillaris 'long arm' seedlings in a patch of Utricularia bisquamata, and Drosera brevifolia at the bottom.
Here is Drosera prolifera in a sea of Utricularia bisquamata. The D. prolifera has three flower stalks not in the frame producing plantlets.
A view out over some of the collection.
A NoID VFT comin' for the camera. NOM NOM NOM!
Drosera graomogolensis nestled in a patch of U. praelonga x livida and shouldered by Drosera capillaris 'Long Arm'
Drosera filiformis ssp. filiformis and Drosera 'Albino' x aliciae in the left background and Drosera capensis x spatulata in the right background.
Drosera aliciae. In the background from left to right: Droseras spiralis, capensis x spatulata, hamiltonii, and capillaris 'Long Arm'
Drosera collinsea in middle left, clockwise from the top around collins': venusta, cape x spat, and in the bottom left is capensis - narrow red
Was trying to get a better pic of Utricularia longifolia behind the NoID VFT.
Drosera capensis x spatulata in all it's glory! I really like this hybrid! It's durable and fast and easy. What more could you want out of a sundew?
