    Looking good Jen but I believe you have Xyris and the Zephyranthes reversed.

    Judge not lest ye be judged creates a cesspool. Judge others and prepare to be judged by them.

    As I planted each one, I left the bag next to it, and took a picture for reference, but I may have gotten them switched up. Will have to do a bit of poking around.

    It's night and day. Xyris has leaves which are flat in cross section, Z. candida has leaves round in cross section.

    I'm glad you are familiar with them. Indeed, they are switched!

    Update time:

    Thanks again, SubRosa - the plants you sent seem quite happy here!

    First 'good' leuco pitcher of the year:


    Purps are eating well. I saw tons of black crickets, but this guy looks like the pet store variety:


    I'm glad Drosera are pigs. There are a LOT of flies in that bog, and the Drosera are gorging themselves.

    Filiformis:


    Intermedia:


    And, it looks like the Spiranthes may be thinking about flowering!

    The purp pic is in my old bog. I sprinkled some of my excess D. intermedia (tropical variety) in there as an experiment. At the moment, they are doing fine, but I'm curious to see what happens this winter.

    The Spiranthes is doing more than thinking about blooming! Wait til you catch a whiff........
