    Yogurt cups make wonderful little pots!
    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.

    I had very humble beginnings as a horticulturist. I started with sundews in yogurt cups because they were the perfect size to fit on a windowsill. Then all the windowsills filled up. And it appears that now the plants have me surrounded. Funny how that goes.

    But every time I eat yogurt, I'm reminded of how thrilling all those early days were. How exciting it was to grow new plants and learn about them.

    S. (rubra x psittacina) x leucophylla - first pitcher of the season




    N. talangensis x robcantleyi. Appears to be a steady but somewhat slow grower.


    Spathulata x glabrata. Grows faster than my ventricosa.



    Drooling boschiana x glandulifera.


    Forest of ventricosa pitchers.


    N. burkei x hamata looking quite toothy for its age.


    N. singalana x aristolochioides has finally darkened up.



    N. spathulata x platychila is taking over my terrarium.



    Capensis


    More capensis


    Even more capensis


    Soon.

    Rare talangensis x robcantleyi shot. I'm almost never home to see a pitcher open.


    Ventricosa being red.


    White puffball of doom.


    Weird purple thing I found in my yard. I hear that it's edible.

    A few new developments!

    N. spathulata x platychila - I'm really fond of the newest pitcher!



    S. rubra arrived today. Many thanks, RyanG!


    D. burkeana starting to show some adult traits. I've noticed that the seedlings started on Sphagnum grow twice as fast as their siblings on peat/sand. This confuses me somewhat, as this plant is apparently grows in waterlogged peat, not in Sphagnum mats...


    S. (rubra x psittacina) x leucophylla. This plant reminds me quite a bit of S. x umlauftiana with a more pronounced hood, probably because it lacks the purpurea genes.






    My forest of capensis looking a bit depressed, probably since we just had a thunderstorm pass by.


    S. jonesii germinations!


    U. subulata. This stupid thing keeps trying to invade the rest of my plants. I've placed it in solitary confinement for now.


    D. capensis restarted from the scraps of my main plant that got mauled by a squirrel in April. You can see the old stem in the second cell down on the right.


    D. binata var. dichotoma 'Giant'. I'll be selecting 3 plants from this mess for my giveaway!


    D. scorpioides. Not much to say.


    Drosera sprouts! I received these as a mess of flower stalks from Tanukimo last week. (Thanks!) Apparently there's D. capensis, nidiformis, venusta, and burmannii in the mix. I'll have lots of fun sorting these out...



    N. spathulata x platychila all colored up.


    N. spathulata x glabrata peristome looking oddly red. Strange, usually the peristome stays greenish and the pitcher turns red...


    Nice leaf jump on the N. burkei x hamata. Bring on the coffee!


    A tantalizing glimpse at the fluid concealed within.


    N. boschiana x glandulifera, colorful and sticky like usual.


    N. (ventricosa x sibuyanensis) x mira. I love the tubby red pitchers.


    N. singalana x aristolochioides through the condensation. The pitchers stay a weird olive green color before darkening up.


    N. spathulata x glabrata newly open. I wish the peristome would stay like that all the time, kind of like N. platychila.




    My Sarracenia aren't going hungry tonight, hehehe.

    Great shots! Thanks for sharing them with us. It looks like you have capensis madness. Great looking rubras from Ryan as well & I also received mine today.

    Thanks! I have to find a way to get rid of all the capensis eventually, I'm starting to run out of room.

    Nice to see that the seeds have sprouted for you. Seeds that I sow never seem to sprout for me.

    Quick updates from the outdoors collection:

    S. jonesii putting out their first pitchers. I've got two seedling trays filled with these guys!

    D. dichotoma 'Giant' putting out a flower stalk. Weird, I only got the plant this year...Hopefully I'll have seeds to give away soon!


    D. burkeana all grown up! I sowed these guys in April. Quick little buggers.


    A bit of bird poo managed to land directly on two of them. I'm going to scrape it off later. There are NO trees in the vicinity, I'm not even going to ask how it got there...


    Flower stalk! Don't know if these guys are self-fertile or not, so I'll wait for its brethren before doing anything.
