    That bog is gorgeous! What is that container and what type of medium (other than that LSM) is in it?

    Well, I deserve no credit for the Darlingtonia. Now is just the beginning of their stay with me. But the Cephalotus is the result of years of patience, I will admit that.

    Thanks!

    The container is just a big black tub that I purchased at my local hardware store. I imagine you could find a similar one at a hardware store in your area. As far as medium goes, I used exclusively Sphagnum. That is a luxury that I can afford to take.

    Damn, all that sphagnum must of costed a lot

    Do you think Id be able to do something similar with peatmoss/perlite with LSM ontop, or would problems Im not realizing arise from this?

    I really want to make a big bog like that for my Sarracenia lol

    No I think your hypothetical blend will probably work just fine.

    A couple of new comers to the neighborhood -

    It got sort of beat up in shipping, but hopefully will recover.

    N. glabrata x aristolochioides



    A lot a bit of an impulse buy, but I've never owned either parent's DNA before, the price was right, and it is sort of handsome in a way.

    N. spathulata x dubia







    Really hoping these two can bounce back and become something awesome!

    D. regia



    Despite its miniature size, this plant continues to be mature and become more impressive.

    N. singalana x hamata





    N. spectabilis x singalana

    N. robcantleyi x hamata fully darkened up



    Latest N. singalana x hamata pitcher



    D. regia, doing work, putting on size.



    I received this N. glandulifera with a black and mushy growth tip. It looked like it was in very rough shape and not gonna make it when I unpackaged it. Here it is though, now, and it appears to be in good health! Just goes to show sometimes you should not lose hope!



    It has even retained the pitcher that it came with during shipping.



    The largest seedling of my plants that originate from Mt. Mingan. "N affin. sibuyanensis" Very closely related to the speculatively newly named species N. tenuidon?





    My N. attenboroughii's very first stripe!



    S. 'Reptilian Rose' first pitcher for me this season.





    A good looking VFT putting work into this coming season



    I received this plant in a trade recently and I must say it is easily the smallest plant I have ever received or seen traded before. I almost didn't see it in the bag it was in. BUT, it does appear to be actually growing, so if this thing makes it it will set a few personal records for me. Very excited though, probably my favorite Pinguicula that I have yet to grow til now. P. laueana



    Begonia fuschioides



    Sea of dew . . .

    I like the big patch of D. capensis plants and the little D.regias look to be doing wonderfully!
