martin, I am adding some heliamphora to my collection next spring, the nursery that has them coming in will stop shipping tropiclas by the time they arrive, so he will grow them out for me all winter probably, and I'll get a bigger specimen come spring... and no.. it's a secret! I won't tell!
Yeah, I guess I've been a little intimidated by things like aldrovanda, genlisea, etc. I'm going to try to master the basics(not really basics)before I try those plants that I'm not at all familiar with. I can't imagine Heliamphora is too much harder than Darlings--I'll try it when I get the chance. A cp nursery?...I haven't got the ambition(or brains):) Also, I generally hate giving up plants![img]http://www.**********.com/iBhtml/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img] I didn't remember a few of them, so I had to 'wander around'... I got a few strange looks!
Moderator Schmoderator Fluorescent fluorite, England
My list is weenie compared to everyone elses:
8 commons (but will probably lose quite a few from the squirrel attack)
1 dentata (probably wont survive either)
1 s. "unknown" (but pretty)
1 s. leukophylla
2 s. purpurea
Drosera (my personal favorite)
1 d. adelae
1 d. spathulata
1 d. "unknown"
1 d. capensis 'alba' (tiny baby)
1 d. binata
(the filiformis died... :-( ...and no sign of life from the rotundifolia or capensis i got in the mail)
1 nepenthes "unknown"
I plan to add more...particularly drosera. Soooooo many I'd like to have. My list is short and sweet...but I'm quite thrilled with all of them.
1 rafflesiana(How can I not have one named after S'pore founder? [img]http://www.**********.com/iBhtml/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img])
at least 30 assorted cuttings
15 intermedia (young)
1 very young
1 purpurea venosa
Wish I can have more but have got limited space...in fact, I 've already pushed my luck with the plants listed above...they are all to go no further than a corner...on 2 windowsills and in a terrarium...Dad is monitoring...:)
N=R* fs fp ne fl fi fc L
N. alata "spotted"
G. violacia 'giant'
U. sandersonii 'blue flower'
U. longifolia 'white flower'
D. cv. 'Martson Dragon'
D. filiformis var tracii
D. unknown pygmy
S. x excellens
S. 'Mardi Gras'
And I think that is it
Well...I guess everyone knows my LIST = )
but I do have other plants which I am proud of as well...
I have a couple of different STAPELIA. Some strawberries, orchids, herbs...ivy all over the house (with a larger greenhouse coming in the spring/early summer), bamboo, a patio full of cactus and vines.
And the very cool staghorn fern ( which are coming to the site VERY soon!!)
Plus...many different sar., nep., and few different ult. = )
Just sidetracking...Singapore has about a million trees along the sides of the road to provide shade and greenery...staghorn ferns and orchids are delibrately planted on the trees (each tree is a property of the government! :biggrin: ).
Staghorn ferns are beautiful...
Ok I definitely have the shortest of all!!!
1 Nepenthes Alata
1 commom VFT
Actually there are 2 N. Alata in one pot, and something like 4-5 VFTs in one pot as well. That's how I got them, so I won't complain. I'll probably have to transplant some of the VFTs in spring though because the traps are all over each other. What chaos!
I actually like it when you have a big ol mess of chaos witht he flytraps going on... come spring, Phil is going to love me, I am going to order about 24 more green dragons, red dragons, dente's and typicals to augment my current 36" planter... I am calling it the planter of death.... I have also arranged for a Big Mouth and several other large traps to join the show...
That would be incredible. I hear flytraps are beautiful in colonies. Are you going to sort of 'mingle' the separate colors(typical/red dragon)or have them each in their own groups? I'll bet both would achieve nice results. [img]http://www.**********.com/iBhtml/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img]
