    Porch Plants

    These are mostly contributions from Bucky78, J. Foley, Mark.ca, and Rob Co, and they are in various stages of recovering from shock and coming back from dormancy.













    Barring anything unforeseen, they should all look a lot better in July.

    Jim,
    Spring is a great time for us & our plants!

    Is that a Utric on the left in your 3rd pic (U. longifolia?)?

    What's that 'concrete-looking' media mix in the 4 small pots on the left (4th pic)?
    All the best,
    Ron

    Yep, a few of those look familiar! What is the Sarr in the last pic with the floppy hood?
    I don't want EVERY Sarracenia, just everyone that I see!!

    That's a lotta plants! (did I just say that?) Looks good though! Like all the easy to fill tubs!

    I hope you have better luck with dews outside, I see a bit of cottonwood fluff in a few of your pots, all my outdoor CPs are choked with that stuff! I just plucked as much as I could on saturday and all the tiny seedlings from my CPs. The lady next door said she can't tell her planted seedlings from the swarm of cottonwood seedlings. It's very dry this year (no rain) and it's the worst fluff season I can remember, I assume there must be a correlation. I finally found the tree, it's directly above our patios behind another huge tree which two branches fell off of, one last year and one last night. It's just so tall I never saw the hanging puffs until last night when that huge branch fell off just before dark. I thought it was just kids lighting off jumping-jack firecrackers in the park the way the cats scrambled into the house so I went to look and it was another 100 ft branch had fell off.

    Ron: I'm experimenting with U. alpina, outside and the pots of concrete are actually a highly sand to peat mixture for recently sprouted pygmy sundews.

    Wes: Yup, there's a whole pot of the Sarracenias you sent last year. Much thanks. I think the one you are asking about is the catesbei, off to the right.

    Josh: I've seen a lot of cottonwood calling cards in the past month. I think pygmy sundews do the best for me when placed at a sunny window sill. Not all my experimenting goes well!

    Thanks for looking and commenting.
