    Hello from California

    Hi everyone,

    I'm Howard. I've been getting back into carnivorous plants after a 3 year gap. I have a Nepenthes (not sure about the species) that I've had for almost 10 years.
    Here's a list of plants I have acquired in the last few months:

    Aldrovanda vesiculosa

    Utricularia gibba
    Utricularia inflata
    Utricularia sandersonii

    Utricularia geminiscapa
    Utricularia graminifolia
    Utricularia macrorhiza

    Utricularia purpurea
    Utricularia bisquamata
    Utricularia longifolia

    Utricularia subulata
    Drosera (anyone know what it is?)

    Drosera binata
    unknown tropical Drosera (hope someone can identify it)

    Sarracenia x "Dana's Delight"

    As you can probably tell, I'm pretty into Utricularia. I just started collecting them recently. Previously I had gibba and vulgaris but I wasn't able to grow them well and they died.
    I hope to acquire more species of affixed aquatic Utricularia in particular. Recently, I've been looking around for Utricularia volubilis, biloba, and uliginosa. I'm interested in seeing if any normally terrestrial Utricularia are able to survive permanently submerged. I intend to try it with Utricularia dichotoma and flaccida when I get my hands on some.
    I found out about the BACPS recently and attended their last meeting, where I acquired the Sarracenia x "Dana's Delight" and the unknown tropical Drosera. I hope to meet other Utricularia lovers on this forum!

    Thank you for the identification. I was wondering if it was D. spatulata at first but it seems like spatulata has longer and thinner petioles than mine so I wasn't sure. After looking at photos of venusta online, it seems that it is likely what I have, especially given its potential to be red (it was redder when I first got it). I didn't realize that there were more replied at first since there was another thread with the exact same name. Lol.

    Also, an update on a few of the plants. Following advice I received, I have transplanted the Utricularia longifolia into pure long-fibered sphagnum. It seems to be drying up even though I'm watering it and keeping it in a glass terrarium with ~100% humidity in the sun. And I may have lost the other unidentified Drosera, because it was growing in the same pot as the longifolia and after I transplanted it I got on an airplane so it was mushed by peat moss in a bag for a day. I've repotted it in peat moss (turns out most of the growing medium of the longifolia was slime mold...) but it's leaves are in pretty bad condition and I think it's in shock because it's not growing.
