    New Hummer's Giant

    Hi everyone -

    I am excited because I just got this guy yesterday (thanks Dave!!!) I am a bit nervous about cultivation, but from what I read the most important thing is watering. As such, it sounds like treating like my mexican pings as far as watering will do. No more than 1/4 inch of water and then let the tray dry out for a couple of days.

    While I'm at it I snapped a few other pics:

    B52 Venus Flytrap just emerging form dormancy and already putting out traps about twice the size of my typicals:

    And finally my indoor forest of Drosera binata multifida 'extrema' (Thanks Jeff!!!)

    Nice plants, all . . .

    Good luck with your Cephalotus; your view of treating them like Mexican Pinguicula isn't far from the truth. Just let it be and you'll have no problem. Cephalotus suffers from far too much, not too little attention . . .
