    Proof that I'm growing! (Pictures)

    It's been so long since I've posted any pictures of my plants that most people figure I don't actually grow anything. Here are a few pictures from the past few weeks or so.

    Cephalotus:

    Pot shot:


    Newer pot shot:


    Closeup of the offshoot:


    Toothy closeup:



    Sarracenia:

    Three of the variation found in my group of S. flava 'Copper Top' F2 seedlings:





    S. 'Judith Hindle' young pitchers. As these age, they'll turn a very dark red which will bleed out of the veins across the rest of the pitcher. I'll try to post an updated picture to show you guys what I'm talking about:

    A group of flowers from... S. areolata, Wayne co., Alabama. I believe, that's right, but I'm a bit tired. I'll confirm in the morning.




    Ok, now here's a story for ya. Every now and then, a member will post a picture because one of their plants caught a frog, but I've got an extra little twist. I found the guy pictured below on a mini bog of mixed CPs. The twist: my plants are grown on a second story balcony. Now how the HECK did he get up here?! lol
    Rest assurred that I removed him from the pot and released 'im down where he belongs.






    The following pictures are of recently-opened flowers from my S. minor out of Wayne co., Georgia. There are two flowers, and they both exhibit the long petal morphology. As this is my only minor: Is this common for this species?






    And since we're talking about weird flowers, I've noticed that a good number of flowers this year display different numbers of petals from the same exact plant. Sometimes two petals come out where one should, and sometimes there's an extra "section." Possibly the strangest flower mutation I've come accross is this:

    Can you spot it in the first picture? Count closely! lol (HINT: The noodly-appendages growing off of the flower are only my fingers. )


    See?!


    Now I just need to see how it works out with pollination. When the ovaries swell up, I'll check to see if there is an extra partition for the extra stigma. BTW, the plant this is on is on of my S. rubra ssp. gulfensis Ancestral Form from Crawford co., Georgia.

    A new offshoot forming! Yay! Will have to get the name in the morning- tooo tired to remember. Wait, am I DRIVING?! --Edit: The plant is S x areolata. (Thanks for pointing out my mistake, Pyro. :-) )




    The previously seen S. 'Judith Hindle' complete with flower. :-)




    Looks to be S. x ahelsii (I know there's location data somewhere!) Also complete with flower:




    And this one just reminds me of one of the hats that Robbin Hood wears.



    And an overall shot of one of my minibogs:




    Heliamphora:

    I'll have to get some better and updated pictures, I always have a hard time getting a good shot of these.

    Closeups of the best pitcher on my H. 'Tequila'







    That's all for now! Hopefully more will come.

    Hey Est, what do you do for your Tequilas? You can see what I do for mine and what mine look like on a thread I posted a few days ago. Yours seems to be similarly colored with maybe a little more yellow. I just want to see what it will accept. Also how big are the pitchers?

    You mean in depths of a pitcher plant?

    Thanks for sharing. You've got some great plants going there. Your ceph is amazing!
