    Since imgur updated to a new site and broke their image editor, it looks like I'm switching to Flickr. Hopefully everything works smoothly.

    Nepenthes spectabilis, Sibutan that I acquired almost a month ago. I forgot to take a picture before now, it was solid green when I got it.

    Thanks, Mark!

    Drosera capillaris by Nimbulan, on Flickr
    This little guy popped up as a hitchhiker in a utric plug and grew to this size (and is now flowering) in 2 and a half months. I didn't feed it either.

    Tillandsia flowers grow quite quickly, apparently, and there's a second one on the way!

    Fascinated by the color on that Tillandsia flower....I must not be pulled into growing another group of plants....!!

    Also, that "capillaris" looks more like my D. natalensis than any capillaris I've ever seen.
    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 utric plug came from @RSS and he seemed quite certain as to its identity.

    And yes, air plants can have some very showy flowers. T. ionantha is the most commonly-grown species I believe and I just bought this plant 2 months ago. I suspect the nursery it came from fertilizes their plants better than I do as none of my other air plants have flowered this year.

    The Drosera in question should be a 10-20th generation Drosera capillaris Boiling Springs Lake NC, the original mother plant is long gone but generations have lived on. If my memory is correct it came from Ozzy during one of the NASC auctions as an extra.

    Are you sure your not confusing capillaris with capensis, now capensis looks completely different, but I'm no Drosera expert.

    As I understand it, D. capillaris has a very high degree of variability in appearance compared to most species. Some look very like D. intermedia while others exhibit this rosetted form. I'll be sure to post a flower picture when one opens, assuming I can catch one when it's open. Most of my Drosera flowers try their best to avoid my notice.
