    What is that Dischidia potted in? I'm having trouble getting mine really growing.

    Thanks!

    I have it in pure LFS, which I water infrequently, but the plant does get sprayed/misted often.

    A very colorful maxima hybrid x fusca hybrid from Paul B:



    Nepenthes vieillardii FINALLY making a pitcher. This plant is slow as molasses.


    Drosera graomogolensis sending up a flower spike.

    Not a lot of excitement here in the dead of winter, but it is nice to look at this when the high is 20 degrees:



    A few new things:

    Drosera graomogolensis flower (I hear these are self-fertile?)


    Nepenthes ventricosa x talangensis


    Ping. cyclosecta. The plant split into two after blooming and I accidentally tore some of the leaves while dividing it. Tossed them into the pot and... voilą, little pings


    Dendrobium Micro Chip blooming

    My wife would get total anxiety if my window sill looked like yours during the winter, but I would love it! I'm jealous. Keep up the good work.

    How is your D. graomogolensis growing? Do you have a full plant shot? I had one many years ago and it did okay, but struggled some in my conditions. D. graomogolensis was always one of my favorite Drosera.

    Thanks, xvart! I'm lucky to have a partner who supports my obsession.

    I've had the D. graomogolensis for about two years. It grows, like everything, as a windowsill plant with supplemental light. It looks glorious in the spring and fall, when temperatures are mild and the humidity is high.

    In the winter, it suffers, especially when my humidifier can't keep up. It's looking a bit sad right now:


    I have some small plants that I made from leaf cuttings. They look much better than the mother plant. I can spare one when the weather is more conducive to shipping.

    Haha. Back when I had my grow rack going full speed my wife half-heartedly supported my obsession, but probably only because it was in a spare bedroom nobody ever went into!

    Thanks, that's very generous of you. Sadly I don't really have the capacity to grow much in my current apartment other than some Nepenthes on the porch.

    I looked at the link you shared to your other thread. The mother plant looks great. I always loved the near solid red color of D. graomogolensis. Thanks for letting me relive vicariously through you!

    Nepenthes spathulata x spectabilis. This photo doesn't do it justice.


    N. chaniana x veitchii
