    pulchella is one of my favorites as well ,havent been able to find one of these So Far , but i'll keep looking .
    Your collection is great Thanks for the work on the photos !
    What conditions are you growing yours in , in reference to the long winter , do you have them outside ?
    I see the bubble film wrap is this in a greenhouse.
    And how do you summer them ?

    Absolutely gorgeous! I sure hope that some of my plants get that large one day.

    I have a couple of questions, if you don't mind.

    What is your preferred growing mix?

    Do you feed or fertilize? If so, how often and with what?

    I grow mine in a mix of long fibre Sphagnum mixed with orchid bark for drainage.
    I don't feed or fertilise them, though they do catch quite a few insects in the greenhouse for themselves!

    cheers

    I grow them all in a greenhouse all year round. I keep it heated to about 50f in the winter and it is currently 29f outside!
    In the summer the temperature peaks at about 90f.
