    Don't have pics currently, but Randy, the cuttings you sent me have sprouted. There are 5 or 6 little plants, all growing slowly. I'm hoping they pick up as my room returns to warm summer conditions....

    Hawken, great to hear that. They seem to put out little leaves for the first couple months (juvenile leaves?), and then they start putting out much longer leaves all at once. At that stage the increase in size is pretty fast. There are some nice examples in the two photos below.

    So to update the photos above--it should be clear which started as which just over 2 months ago:



    The missing ones above were given away or sold.

    Below: The plant in the lower left is starting to make the longer leaves, and the one just above center on the right appears to be doing so. There are plenty of examples in the plants in the individual pots, but those may be harder to see.



    And here is the next batch: started from leaf cuttings on Feb. 13, potted up (like the ones just above) on April 17.



    So I don't have a exact dates for everything, but here's a rough guide to what's going on:

    Month 0: cuttings taken (sphagnum)

    Month 2: tiny plantlets moved to soil (peat:perlite, etc.)

    Month 4: larger plantlets moved to individual pots

    Month 6: plants in individual pots, large enough to sell.

    ~ month 8 or 9, blooming size.

    Just wanted to show an update of one of the plants that Randy sent me. I believe it is finally flowering! What a great species of a cool genus. . .

    Great to hear it's doing well! I see he has a few carnivorous friends as well...

    The whole plant with the bud has the look of some sort of creature, the bud looking like a head, and the leaves like legs or wings?
