    Looks very nice.

    My only concern is the plastic. How's the plastic of the rectangular tub holding up? I think I see a few chips and cracks. It's been my experience that plastic like that gets brittle (thanks to the sun) pretty quickly but is fine so long as you don't put any extra stress on it.
    For future reference, opaque plastic like that used in dish tubs and the like seems to hold up without any trouble and can be found in similar sizes. Furthermore, I prefer opaque containers because then I don't get unwanted things growing below the soil line.

    Nice closeups, btw. I especially like the orientation of the 2nd D. filiformis. Good job!

    haha yea. i didnt know that when i set it up last year! next year they will all be moved to pots. much neater and much easier to move plants around!

    thanks for the comments.
    Est: ive been looking up pics of the filiformis....the one with red tentacles is ssp filiformis. and the other is....ssp tracyi? ssp tracyi has big glue drops and that specimine matches that. or could it be california sunset? the one with red tentacles is sending up a small flower stalk. ill get a pic of the flowers when/if they open in time for the first frost.
