    Plant Planter's Photo Thread

    Unfortunately I don't have many plants to take photos of. Oh well.

    I'll update this thread periodically whenever something neat happens.

    A lovely Sarracenia leucophylla 'Tarnok' pitcher that's grown to be over a foot tall. It hasn't quite finished opening yet.

    A better-quality shot of my 'Dentate Traps' plant.

    My flowering monster, Drosera spatulata. Count the stalks.

    A whole shot of my Sarracenia leucophylla 'Tarnok'.

    My baby little 'Cupped Trap' plant that appears to be recovering from Small-Leaf Syndrome.

    My 'Green Dragon' plant with huge spring leaves. Oddly, its traps seal shut before they die. Maybe they're just too weak before death to eat anything and they know it.

    Just your not-so-friendly neighborhood flytrap.

    My very basic Pinguicula primuliflora.

    What happens when a 'Green Dragon' plant collides with a spider? (Sorry for bad quality; I needed to zoom in a LOT. At least you can see the legs sticking out. )

    My (unfortunately pitcherless) Nepenthes fusca.

    Mind you, these are ONLY my carnivorous plants! I have more non-carnivores that I'll add later.

    Nice start to your collection! That P. primuliflora looks very happy (I tend to kill them). Is the Tarnok your only sarracenia?

    Yes, it is. My dad has a Sarracenia flava that isn't doing too well, though. Its pot also has a tiny seedling Drosera capensis in it.

    Nice plants you have there!! Is your N. Fusca a new plant? Sometimes it can take a while for adaptation to occur before the Nepal starts putting out nice pitchers.


    In addition to growing plants, I design and build RC planes powered by Tesla batteries. Check out my progress at www.chargedplanes.com

    I've had it for about a month. How long is 'a while?'

    "A while" can be six months or more for some plants. It depends on how adaptable the species (or hybrid) is, and how close to ideal your growing conditions are. Even in my carefully engineered greenhouse, I have some plants that are still adapting to the growing conditions after a full year in my care. Nepenthes require extreme patience sometimes.

    If that's so, I'm not going to be very good at growing them!

    Sometimes low humidity cause Nepenthes to temporarily stop pitchering. You may want to consider setting up a grow chamber.

    Good Growing,
    Kenny
