I suppose it's about time so I'll start with some recent pictures. Quite a few actually.
Plants waking up outdoors.
Some native Oregon sphagnum I'm growing with the outdoor plants, covered with netting to discourage those pesky birds.
My crazy S. "Daina's Delight" growing more than 100 pitchers at a time from its 3" rhizome.
P. primuliflora enjoying being outdoors with some nice color developing on the leaves.
Plants and lots of seeds under my new LED light. Plenty of CPs, but also airplants and a few vegetable seeds.
U. calycifida 'Asenath Waite' is a profuse flowerer, despite being grown for a while in too strong of light as you can see by the yellow leaves.
H. heterodoxa being grown at ambient humidity under extremely strong LED light. It's apparently supposed to be lime green.
A Nepenthes grown from a cutting I received last year. Unfortunately the tag got lost and I haven't figured out what it is yet. It's pretty easy to tell which leaf grew after I moved it under the LED...
A N. albomarginata pitcher on a newly rooted cutting. It was just starting to develop when I received the cutting and I was expecting it to die back, but it continued developing and is now opening. The new growth point hasn't even grown 1/4" yet. Those are 4"x4" pots for scale.
Attempting to germinate some Nepenthes seeds, surrounded by many sundews.
My profusely-flowering D. burmannii pot, about a year old at this point.
D. scorpiodes forest.
My two Mexican pings: 'Aphrodite' and 'Gina'
My very first CP, D. adelae, finally flowering after 3 years - LFS is the key!
The first flower.
The current windowsill Nepenthes: N. ramispina, N. 'Miranda', and a poi dog. Unfortunately the N. ramispina has seen some abuse, with some light burn before moving it here and a fertilization accident.
What happens when you raise the liquid level too high when adding liquid fertilizer to a Nepenthes pitcher. The red part has since died and dried up. For future reference: never raise the liquid level above the digestion zone of the pitcher.
One pitcher on the poi dog failed to develop a lid for some reason. It's never happened before and I don't see any signs of it on other developing pitchers.
Some of the pitchers on this plant still look very good after more than a year.
A newly opening N. 'Miranda' pitcher. It may be common, but it still looks very nice.
Getting started with winter-growing sundews. D. hookeri and D. cistiflora. Not pictured is a D. zigzagia which already went dormant (hopefully it didn't just die) and some D. auriculata seeds I have waiting for fall.
Roridula gorgonias, recovering from me finding out the hard way not to let it get rained on constantly. Botrytis is nasty.
My first flower of the year, Darlingtonia californica (barring my Pinguicula primuliflora which never stopped flowering all winter.)
Bonus picture: Lunch!
