    Seedlings!!!

    I figured I'd show some of what my own plants produced this season. Here they are, my seedlings from 2014:



    Sarracenia oreophila
    These are the only plants that I was smart enough to go ahead and stratify/germinate this year. The other two heads of S. oreophila and one of S. jonesii were mistakenly discarded by my family. Probably close to 1000 seeds, gone.



    Product of D. muscipula 'Burbank's Best'.
    Not as many seedlings as could have been produced, but out of six seeds, four isn't bad.
    Receiving the mother plant bare root while forming a flower stalk probably is the reason for the very low seed yield.

    Your plant labeled as N. "tobaica" has pitchers that look more like beccariana or longifolia.
    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.

    The pitchers are most likely too immature to be completely accurate for an ID. The pitchers do
    appear somewhat similar to those of N. longifolia, but the leaves appear to be more like those of the N. reinwardtiana/N. sanguinea complex.

    Here is a picture of the whole plant. Keep in mind that all of these seedlings are from the same pod, but their pitchers look nothing like each other, so there is quite a bit of variability among these.

    Pinguicula gigantea


    What is left of my Drosera capensis "alba". It suffered a major dieback, and I was only able to save one of the growing points and the roots.

    These were grown from seeds given to me by a relative that purchased them on eBay as a gift. The relative was unaware of the seeds' origin, and that they were breaking several federal and international laws, (I really hate those ebay merchants for this. Poaching seeds and plants is bad enough, but selling them to people who most likely possess neither phytosanitary nor CITES permits is just despicable.) and if I had known about it, those seeds would never have been purchased. They came labelled as N. tobaica, but I'm aware that they were most likely not labelled correctly.
