    July update.

    In the mini-heatwave we had at the beginning of the month I had root temperature recordings of 34C (93F) one day and the following day 35C (95F) my friend about 30 miles away rang me somewhat perplexed on the second day. He came back from work and recorded 36C (97F ) which he claimed felt like bath water. All is well with the plants in both collections.

    To finish off the Darlingtonia year

    Most of the dead growth has been trimmed off. I say most as I spotted a few bits in the video

    The Sphagnum in most of the top trays has been given a reminder of where and how it's supposed to grow. It should stay in place for a bit longer now. Roll on Spring.

    Goodness, Fred. One might almost get the impression from that video that you have a thing for Darlingtonia! ;-)

    Just a passing interest Paul, nothing too serious
