    I started to grow CP's about two years ago. Still an amature as you'll see from the picture of one of my bog gardens. I made a bad choice of containers - thought an aluminum wash basin would make a great (inexpensive) bog container. D'oh! The plants in it are actually doing very well, but I'm planning on transfering them out at the end of this growing season.

    I live in San Francisco where the weather outside seems to be just about perfect for many CP species. I grow most of my plants in my small roof garden. I have a few others that I grow indoors (pix of those coming later). I'm lucky in that the tap water [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_k_ani_32.gif[/img] is pure enough to use for all my plants.

    So, without further ado, here are some pix of some of my plants:

    d. Capensis alba


    d. Capensis "All Red" - with two flower stalks and three flowers blooming!



    This next one is labeled d. nitidula x omissa


    d. Nitidula x Puchella


    S. wrigleyana "Scarlet Bells"


    My latest bog - still needs to grow in


    Old bog in the aluminum [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_k_ani_32.gif[/img] container:


    A close up pic:


    Finally, perhaps someone could help me identify one of the drosera's in the older bog - Here's a somewhat better pic:


    I have a couple of other CP's that I'll snap pix of in the coming days. Just had to post and finally stop lurking!

    Welcome and Nice plants! Your d. Capensis "All Red" is gorgeous

    I'm not sure what that last sundew is though. Not my area of expertise. If you post it in the Identify That Plant section you might get a quicker response. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_m_32.gif[/img]

    I'm curious as to how your bog is set up. What's the tube for etc.? It looks like a good setup.

    Can't wait to see more pics

    Welcome, LeftCoast.

    I'd say your big bog is definitely in need of repotting -- it is overgrown with moss. The nonsphagnous moss retards other plant growth.

    You should post a grow list.

    Start trading, and your list will practically explode.

    I'd really like to know about that tube set up also when you have a spare moment. It looks like something I might like to try. Please share that set up when time allows.

    Nice photos. The Drosera looks like maybe a Drosera natalensis? I went to the Humboldt site and poked around for a little and I found photos that sort of looked like what you have above. Whe know, after an hour or so they all start looking alike.

    I can deffinately see you've been shopping at CA carnivores [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_n_32.gif[/img] ! I can tell byt the type of pots you have, and that peculiar type of moss in your bog. Wish I lived so close to them.
