    Sarracenia Greenhouse Awakening

    Here are a few photo taken over the last couple months showing everything coming out of a Colorado dormancy.

    Seed Grown Darlingtonia 8 years old now. It is one of the plants I have most struggled with since I moved into greenhouse from terrariums years ago. I had a fellow CP grower over last spring and he suggested burying a pot on the South side of the greenhouse to keep it cool. It has been just over a year the plants finally seems happy. It will be really interesting to see how it does this year.

    Mato lol if you want to know the truth that has actually been one of my goals. To basical grow a perfect plant as a representative of each type of carnivorous plant, and most Nepenthes species. Right now there is only one that I feel like I have not succeeded with...Cephalotus. I have tried just about everything in my greenhouses and they just never seem to do well. I have cultivated some plants for over 8 years and they are still just lousy looking specimens in my greenhouse.

    My project for this summer is set up an terrarium or two and see if I can do any better.

    That is a drip irrigation system I use to water almost all of my plant in my large greenhouse.

    Thanks

    I didn't realize you had quite a collection of Sarracenia as well -they look great, of course! I fell in love with Cephalotus last spring and decided, in spite of a reputation for difficulty, that I'd give it a go. This is my original plant, about 11 months in my care:
    [IMG]http://**************************************/2012/05/20120501-224227.jpg[/IMG]
    (not trying to hijack your thread, I apologize) my Cephalotus all spent the winter in my Nepenthes house against the south wall, with reduced watering. As day length shortened, they went semi-dormant for a couple months, then made a load of green paddles in February/March, followed by the start of new pitchers. Three of my plants are flowering as well! I feel like I ignore them, mostly. The soil is pretty much half sand, half washed peat, and they get rainwater only. They are all potted in tall ceramic pots, glazed a whitish cream color, to reduce solar gain. The soil is topped with a quarter inch of coarse white builders sand. All of this seems to work. I just wanted to share my experience with this plant, in case it might give you an idea or two for caring for yours.
