    you've got some nice plants brokken. im sorry that the disas die after blooming...is it possible to artificially propagate them before the bloom or does the plant consist of a singular bulb?

    Thanks for the kind replies, everyone!

    Amph: The main plant will die after flowering but after it does, small plantlets grow around the main dahlia-like bulb. It is possible to take those and grow them to maturity. It takes roughly two years for them to reach flowering size.

    LOVE the truncata x spectabilis. Thank you for giving me something to look forward to in mine. Hopefully by this time next year I'm seeing pitchers that size.

    The heat seems to have encouraged a whole bunch of pitchers to open:

    Maxima upper:



    Izumiae x TM plant #1:



    Izumiae x TM plant #2:



    (veitchi x lowii) x spectabilis (yellow plant):



    Ventricosa (porcelain):



    Jamban:



    Fusca (Sarawak):




    Now... for some things I picked up at the BACPS show:

    Darlingtonia californica:



    Lowii:



    Lowii (closeup):



    (Rokko x Dyeriana) x ventricosa:



    (Rokko x Dyeriana) x ventricosa (closeup):
