I haven't posted here in a while, but I just decided to show some Before & After shots of some of my plants over the last 3 months.
BEFORE (May 2006): These were slow to start off this year because there was A LOT more cloudy and rainy days than usual this spring (Bay Area, California).
AFTER (August 11, 2006): Full pot!!! It grew slowly for weeks, and it wasn't until the past few weeks that the pot got filled up. I definetly need to seperate these for next season.
NOTE: The grass in the above photo is from the LFS I put in the pot. Every plant I used that LFS for grew grass. I don't want to pull it because I am afraid to disturb the root systems of the CP.
BEFORE (May 2006): Photo taken on the day of purchase, it was in a 2"pot and I repotted to a 4" pot. The plant lacks color, and probably wasn't recieving proper lighting.
AFTER (August 10, 2006): Much better color now. It gained a lot of new pitchers and i'm really surprised at how big the little babies got.
S. purpurea x ? (Help ID Please)
BEFORE (May 2006): Same as above. The day of purchase, and repotted to 4". Also looking like it needs more light.
AFTER (August 10, 2006): Now that it's full sun, it turned DARK RED!... It looks like a different plant now!
Oops, it's 4:30 AM... I should sleep.
BTW, I confess to breaking a big CP rule. I've been watering with tap water since the first pics were taken. They've been doing fine though, right?...
