    You know, I didn't even think about the fabric being treated.

    If it matters, I don't think it's true burlap (as in a burlap bag), it just seems to be a similar material. It does have a smell to it, but I attributed that to it's nature as what I had assumed was comparatively lightly-processed material.

    Nevertheless, I don't -think- any leeching would cause major problems, but I -will- keep this in mind, and at the first sign of trouble, that will definitely be one of the trouble-shooting options, unless I can get my hands on some -real- shadecloth before then.

    Dug the camera out to take pics of a butterfly I saved from certain doom (pics of him in a separate thread in the appropriate sub-forum), so since I had the camera out, I figured, why not?

    A pic of my two newest Sarrs, showing off their new growth:

    At least three moths were caught last night by two different pichers. This, and a S. purpurea. I really didn't think moths were frequent victims of Sarrs. Apparently I was wrong:

    ...and a quick little update shot of my baby VFT's, looking good, now that they aren't crammed up inside each other, as they had been in their hardware store deathcubes (and for a while afterwards, because I thought they were just heavily clumped typicals, and didn't realize each 2" pot has as many as 4 plants in them:

    What is the bottom pitcher? Can't quite read it. Whatever it is, it's on the "can't live without" list! What a beaut!

    Thanks! Though I can't take much credit for it, since only one pitcher has grown for me, lol.

    It's: Jerry's (rubra x purpurea)2 x Judith Hindle
    ...quoted verbatim from the tag. I don't know what that "2" is doing in there, to be perfectly honest. :/

    (Edit) Oh...I see...it's a freakin' algebra equation...got it.

    I gotta say props to all the Sarracenia breeders! That has got to take so much hard work and patience to cross these plants and keep the lineage intact. I wonder how often they grow a tray of seeds they have held great hopes for and they develop into blah. Maybe they are always cool and there is no such thing as a blah Sarracenia.

    I think everyone believes that until they have about 1000+ seedlings that need to be sorted through and culled, lol.

    I vote that the "D" in D. capensis be changed from Drosera to Determined.

    Found these sprouting out of what I was sure were dead leaves, having wilted and baked from being thrust out into the sun right after I received them.
