Beats doing it myself. I have a real low end film scanner that does a good job but the software isn't that great. I could buy the Silverfast software but the money would probably be better spent upgrading the scanner.

    Any touch ups I do in Photoshop. The automatic film processors actually do a pretty good job with exposure and color balance. If not I can always go back to the negative.
    You would definitely be better off buying a new scanner with a negative adapter. It would come with the software you'd need.

    If you need photo editing software, just download GIMP. It's a freeware image editing program that's pretty damn good.

    Anyone notice that D. Binata flowers look very similar to Venus Fly Trap flowers?

    Great pictures!

    My binatas have all flowered at least once this summer, to my delight. Unfortunately, they also stopped producing new leaves. There are one or two left on one stalk, the other one is empty with no new shoots showing in the center. Should I have cut the flowers off and not allowed them to flower so much? Are my binatas dead now?

    They have probably gone dormant early. D. binata dies down to the root when this happens. Cut back the watering and wait and see.

    D. binata is pretty resilient, so even if this was more than a response to photoperiod and temperature cues, they may not be dead. BTW, if you need replacements, I have plenty left over from my recent trading post offering.

    Ohhh. Thanks for the advice. How will I be able to tell the difference between dormant and dead?

    Sometimes a bit of growth remains, sort of a winter bud. Otherwise you just have to wait and see if it starts growing again. Don't toss out the pot. As long as you keep the pot from freezing or too wet it should be okay. As noted before D. binata is very resilient. If not, I have some more seeds on the way.
