    Well, almost wake up time!!!

    It's getting closer to Valentines day! Which means SOON we can start waking up the CPs!



    Can't wait to get mine out of the fridge!

    Haha! For once, I've got you all beat - both my Darlingtonia and my D. rotundifolia are already starting to break dormancy.

    I couldn't stand it, I took one VFT and one Sarr. out of the fridge!

    I do have a big tray full of D. adelae I need to re-pot also.

    It's hitting 50F during the days here, but remaining below freezing at night. It's making an interesting ring effect on the media in the pots outside, as they nearly -- but not quite -- thaw out, then re-freeze. When I get home on my new schedule it's still above freezing, so to try and prevent them being freeze dried, I'm trying to water them at that time. I might consider warming up the water before doing so next time, but I'm not sure on that...

    The S. Purpurea are kinda browning up in spots but are seeming ok -- the bigger of the two has an exposed root or two from pouring water on it, which I am trying to fix by pushing some media around on top of it, but it's probably too late to worry about.

    I have a pot of 2 S. leucophylla and a S. x 'Judith Hindle', they seem to be doing OK although I do wish I had buried them further down in the media. All 3 still have some color but are browning up a bit. They are in a weird mix of about 2 inches of pure LFS, then Peat + Perlite, then another 2 inches of pure LFS on top. It seemed like a good idea at the time.

    Some of my new stuff has already woken up to a point -- the D. dichotoma "Giant" is growing like a weed already, and has caught some fruit flies that I didn't even know I had. The D. Tracyi hasn't done anything but turn black on some of it's tips, but only a few of them. I'm hoping to see some activity soon, I plan on making it an outside plant as soon as possible. The D. Binata is still black and dead looking.

    I have a S. leucophylla and a VFT Typical in the bedroom windowsill, they haven't grown but they also haven't died, just kinda sitting there, I am hoping it's the lower photo period that's keeping them dormant. Hopefully around March 30th I'll be able to bring them outside, right now it'd shock them to death if I tried -- 60-70 degree apartment going to a 20-50 degree outside... yeah, not good.

    Have some Darlingtonia seed that I'm stratifying in the fridge, it's kind of a race right now to see if I can both stratify it AND sprout it in time for the weather outside to support it. We'll see, my current plan is to take it out of the fridge around 3/20 and plop it into my LFS growing project (where I have my D. Filiformis "Florida All Red" seeds).

    Dear everyone, I respectfully submit "nya nya"

    It's OK though. I'll probably get a hard frost that'll kill them all. Or, to make up for all of the sunshine we've been having (and associated lack of precipitation) they'll all go up in flames when California bursts in to flames (again) this year.

    So far I've got in the vicinity of 20 flowers in various states of development. The growth you see if old growth that wasn't trimmed back. Somehow I didn't expect my plants to wake up in freakin' JANUARY.

    My plants should be breaking dormancy this month. Already got a leuco that tried making pitchers and a flower. I hope the flower will actually flower. o.o I also expect a flower from my S. purp venosa.
