    Clue's Place

    Here's my screenhouse, something my dad and I put together to keep the furry little critters out of my plants.


    Here's a picture of it as the sun was peering through the clouds.


    The front acts like a flap, giving me access to my precious little ones. If you look very closely, there are nails through the bottom where I hook the flap when not in use. The nails point towards the ground so it can't fly open in the wind.

    Welcome to the start of your tour...

    Hmm...some peeps here have issues with squirrels....that would keep them out.
    Some days it just isn't worth chewing thru the restraints.

    A raccoon, may have access to your plants much the same way that you can. I'd find a way to secure that flap.

    To the right is part of my Utricularia tray. There are two clones of Utricularia reniformis, U. nelumbifolia seedlings, and some Cephalotus leaf cuttings I've been meaning to move.


    One of the U. reniformis pots with some tropical D. intermedia.


    The fake Pinguicula 'Weser' in its glory.


    Just one of the Sarracenia trays sitting in the sun.


    S. flava var. flava with its friends S. purpurea varieties montana and heterophylla.


    This is my S. oreophila [d].


    This is my "hardy" Darlingtonia clone, which I've had for two years since April. I don't treat it any different from my Sarracenia, but it's still growing.


    This is my S. oreophila [c], which is in excess of a foot-and-a-half.


    This flower shows that the S. flava var. atropurpurea that I received from Lois half a year ago isn't pure. I was always skeptical about the clone. It never looked like a pure S. flava.


    Here's a hybrid that not many seem to have: S. 'Moore's Melody'. It's a wild hybrid of S. alata and S. rosea. It's a very large plant. The lid itself is larger than a U.S. silver dollar coin.


    An S. 'Judith Hindle' clump coming back like a phoenix from the ashes.

    I haven't taken many pictures of my Drosera trays. Here's a D. mutifida f. extrema leaf just starting to branch out.

    Now for the real stuff:


    A newer N. maxima "dark" x talangensis pitcher with an N. 'Peter D'Amato' x maxima tendril.


    A newer N. thorelli x campanulata pitcher looks out-of-place with its red leaves.


    There was a carpet moss infestation in my Cephalotus pot. Therefore, I pulled off the entire top covering and replaced it with fresh sphagnum. The carpet moss was choking out the new growth, so the plant was growing over itself. Hopefully it's more comfortable now.


    An H. nutans that's quite comfortable with full sun, low humidity, and sitting in water.


    An N. glabrata with looooooong tendrils.


    A furry little N. macrophylla. Note the size of the regular-grade perlite for scale.


    Need I say anything more except "cute"?


    A nice seedgrown N. dubia.


    My odd-looking clone of N. inermis that originated at Borneo Exotics.


    You all know what this is. It's a Clone 4 from Andreas Wistuba as well.


    A seedgrown N. smilesii with a basal shoot.



    My little N. aristolochioides.


    A Texan S. alata that consistently makes flowers that look like this. Curled petals and sharp edges.


    And the grand finale, my S. oreophila [a].

    I have locks on that are key-opened on the flap. Thankfully, I haven't had issues with raccoons, but if they shall come, they won't be able to get in.

    Very Nice Mr. Lew! I've been looking forward to this moment, and now that I have you where I want you I can finally do what I've always wanted to do! MUAHAHAHAHAHAAH

    Congratulate you on a great job. I love the N. aristolochioides. N. hamata, N. macrophylla (same size as mine ), The U. Reniformis, and so much more. Well worth the wait

    Quite the collection, Clue! I would've never guessed that plant as a N. inermis... it's too colorful
    <Heli> How are you guys losing your hamatas?
