    Of course! Photoperiods. We live on Earth, you see. Then I'm not surprised I lost it. Now that I'm back in the game of it all I'll pay closer attention. So you reduce the photoperiod gradually? Could it, do you think, be done abruptly? I'm sure there's some gadget out there that could remember for me hahaha

    To be honest I haven't gotten that far. I'm not sure what the "best" way to do it is.

    I was tentatively thinking of reducing it a half-hour every 4 days or so (an hour a week, basically). I'm hoping that's "gradual" enough. I've got about 5 hours to make up, so that's 5 weeks of dwindling light.

    I don't mess with photoperiod at all with my Mexican Pinguicula. I simply stop watering them from November to February or March.

    That may turn out to be the best thing. When my Sarrs went into dormancy last year, they didn't get watered for at least 3 months.

    I'd be a little scared to do that with something that's still showing growth though. It'd be a psychological thing to get over, I guess.

    Updates, and new plants!

    Got some nice and unexpected things in yesterday. I have to apologize in advance, because while I'm ready to take pictures, I'm not quite ready to duplicate the documentation (I'll be working on that later today). All the new stuff is attributed to the generosity of fellow TF'er Whim (thanks buddy). So, in no particular order:

    Two new sarrs:

    D. binata 'red dwarf'

    Rooted N. Leopard cuttings:

    Some Nep seedlings that I don't know how to refer to, lol

    N. seedlings 2 7-13-14 by the_bugman_cometh, on Flickr

    Until I figure out something better, they're sharing the shade tent in the terrarium with the U. Calycifida


    My VFT's looking good despite the recent thrip damage.

    Drosera germination cups are starting to go off. These are D. sp 'Lantau Island', recently acquired through the ICPS seed bank.

    ...and my first stray, lol.

    (Edit) Forgot this. The only drosera I left inside the terrarium, so as not to disturb them. D. burmannii left & center. D. spatulata on right.

    A couple updatey-ish pics, yeah?

    Some of these show the progress since the thrip devastation has been dealt with (I think). Just a few pages back are some photos of damaged plants.

    S. purpurea 'Survivor' (my affectionate nickname for it)

    *******

    Now, just some new pics of the same plants, but maybe prettier.

    My outdoor grow area, a full shot of the CP's and my view, every time I walk outside. :P

    Finally separated the D. Aliciae given to me by TF member Shortbus. I remember his packing slip saying "1-ish D. Aliciae", lol. (Thanks buddy)

    And finally, an updated (finally) pic of my U. Sandersonii plug also gifted to me by Shorty. :P

    ...this is special, because I play a table-top game with hand-made (arts and crafts type) terrain....and this looks like "alien-landscape flora". I've seriously been considering the possibility of cultivating such a massive amount of Sandersonii to use as modular decoration in an incredibly unique and aesthetically pleasing way.

    Hope you enjoy!

    I never get tired of seeing U. sandersonii in flower. Such an easy grow, but so rewarding! Had to revisit your thread today to get caught up. Looking good!
