    Summer time?! [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html312/non-cgi/emoticons/laugh.gif[/img]
    we are expecting some snow tonight and tomorrow..
    higest temps so far this year is about 45F..most days have been in the 30's..nights still below freezing.
    it wont be *spring* for a good month yet..
    Summer is still 3 months away..

    but..my CPs are doing very well this "spring"!
    they came out of the fridge a month ago, they are sitting indoors next to my big sliding glass door..
    lots of new growth in the last month..
    VFTs are fully operational, and many Sarracenia pitchers are growing tall..
    my D. Binata looks better than it ever has!
    everyone survived their 3-month fridge dormancy.
    they will go outside for the season in about a month..maybe 2 or 3 weeks if they are lucky..

    still officially winter here though..

    Well, it's spring here in Houston alright.My judith Hindle hybrid came out of dormancy about four weeks ago and has four 6" pitchers that look like they'll grow another 8" to 12" before they open.The ladies in waiting are twice the size and have a long way to go before they open. The S. Alatas,S. X Scarlett Bell, and Leucos are just starting to pitcher. My Dionaeas, Darlingtonias, and droseras are showing good growth. Around Christmas I saved a bunch of VFT,S. purpaea, and Darlingtonias [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html312/non-cgi/emoticons/biggrin.gif[/img]. Lowes was still trying to make them grow
    so I brought them home and stuck'em in the fridge. The ones I've taken out so far are showing good growth.I'm bringing the rest out today.
    I always suspect everything is a trap....thats why I'm still alive

    Times fun when you're having flys

    Here in Cali, spring is in full swing. Every day for the last 2 weeks has been upper 70s or 80's, clear skies, lotsa sun and just generally beautiful. All my VFTs are going into summer mode... My D. capensis are bigger now than ever. D. filliformis has several threads reaching for the sky... my Sars all have new pitchers growing... Utrics are all happy.. and my D. dichotoma is HUGE!! And to think.. its just the first couple weeks of spring.. in a couple months Im gonna have a jungle on my hands hehe.

    It's working on being spring here. Temps in the 50s to low 60s during the day and dropping to the mid to high 20s at night. My plants are beginning to show signs of the longer days. My d. binata is flowering, my filiformis has threads all over the palce from 3 or 4 growth points. It's also doing a great job of catching the gnats from my daughter's plants. My VFT's are sending up more flower stalks (reminds me I need to trim them off yet). Even one of my N. ventricosas is sending up a flower spike (it's still emerging from the leaf). It's my first nep flower.

    And then it snowed most of the day today and all them early robins froze their little buttuxis off

    It's been in the 40s and 50s here in the day and 30s at night. So I thought spring was coming. Now they're saying we could get 5-9 inches of snow tonight and tomorrow!!! Then by the weekend it could be close to 60 out!! March is certainly a weird month.
