    Oops, I added edibles this year!

    Well, I told myself when I moved to SoCal that I needed to choose among Edibles, CPs, or Succulents. Well, this year I added... well, I guess I failed and have them all, oops! I just gotta grow. I've still got more seeds that I'm waiting on, not that I need more plants, but here's the ones that have sprouted..

    Starting from the leftmost pot, Passiflora laurifolia (only one sprout so far!), Passiflora edulis, Physalis peruviana, White Dragonfruit, failed Papaya sprouts that I planted Red Currant seeds into, an heirloom melon from the old Soviet Union (Rich Sweetness 132), purple shallots, Golden Sugar Apple from Costa Rica, Black Currant, Thai Lavendar Frog Egg Eggplant, Pink Tiger tomatoes, and a pot of herbs including Stinging nettle, Vietnamese mint, and Plantain.


    a closeup of my little Dragonfruit sproutlets


    from the left Extra Dwarf Bok Choi and Violets, Nasturtiums and Violets with some more Bok Chois, Violets and Red Dock, and Love-in-a-mist and Violets


    a closeup of one of those nice little Bok Chois


    that biggest Nasturtium - I got the Alaska mix with the variegated leaves


    the CP pit


    and to the right of that, starting closest to the bottom the Strawberries starting with toscana, mara des bois, then white pineberry, sleep/white Sapote, and a Stapeliad of some sort


    mara des bois


    toscana


    I'm not letting the pineberry fruit this year, because it's a bit on the small side.

    And copious CPs, of course. N. hamata, with petiolata in the background


    N. aristolochioides upper in focus in the center of the shot. In the foreground petiolata pitcher, with a 'Song of Melancholy' all the way to the right, and behind the N.aristo is a N. bongso (Malesiana) pitcher.


    I guess I'll keep the N. xSplendiana x xMixta. Pitcher to leaf ratio is terrible, but it does make nice pitchers once it gets going


    N.sibuyanensis x xTrusmadiensis pitcher


    the pit from inside


    My favourite keep-the-peat-down weed, Utric. bisquamata


    D. regia & dinner


    N. inermis and not dinner… well, maybe it's providing dinner


    Pings mixed pot (the ever-hated), U.nelumbifolia in that square container, N.aristo on the left with some basals going on, and in the center the N. spathulata x hamata


    N. ovata. It started vining


    N. platychila


    The Sarracenia pot


    N. 'Song of Melancholy' (with a ventrinermis pitcher photobombing on the right there)


    and inside, a pretty flower. This one's Phalaenopsis bastianii


    Waiting on the N. 'nephthys'


    and N. clipeata x eymae... or (clipeata x eymae) x eymae. Whatever they decided on...

    Aww, poor lacewing. The honeybee didn't fall into the inermis pitcher? Your aristolochioides looks great.

    The honeybee wasn't in the pitcher later, so I think he made it away ok. Inermis pitchers tip and spill really easily when they become full/heavy so if he did fall in, it might have spilled him back out.

    Thanks
