    S. x'Mardis Gras' is a great plant. I love the variety it adds to my bog.

    That is coming down the road. I have tons of stuff like that around. Right now I'm also individually treating a few plants though. The typical vfts accidentally got some second or third-hand fertilizer, so I've been flushing them every couple days and cleaning out their trays. I don't want that water mixing with any other plants, lol. They seem to be okay. Haven't even had to trim any traps yet, and they eat pretty well.

    You have a nice view from your patio! I especially like the shot of the Sarracenia with the mountains in the background.

    Thanks for the comments. I didn't realize how prettily those pitchers were catching the light until I posted it. Hopefully I can actually start -planning- pics like that in the future. :P

    And yes Tanukimo, it is a wonderful view. I never get tired of it. (I'll show a pic of why that might change soon)

    (Edit) This is the hill directly across from me, smack in the middle of my view of the river.

    And here's what they've been doing to it for the last few weeks. I don't have a good feeling about this...

    Remind me again why you're "Slack potting" Utricularia.

    I may not now, as my source is being kind enough to pot them for me. But I had planned to do it because it seemed to suit the epiphytic nature of the plants. At least two people suggested it as a potting method, including B. Rice and the member who posted a care-sheet here on the forums. It seemed like a good idea?

    (Edit) When someone asks me "Why are you doing that?", I'd like to know why. Chances are 100% you know something that I don't, so spill it! :P

    I wondered if that bare patch was the result of clear cutting or if there had been a kudzu infestation that had killed the trees which then slide downhill.
