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

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!
