    more pics as requested! sorry dialup users!

    It's been a pretty dreary Fall season so far. The plants are not showing alot of color this year unfortunately. I keep thinking I would like to put in some supplemental lighting for these guys to really help them along.

    View of the tuberous Drosera area


    D. macrantha of some sort.. You can see how much they have grown already in the previous photo, winding up the bamboo stakes.


    D. macrantha. This one has much flatter traps and when it catches something it folds, unlike the usual D. macrantha which just closes the tentacles up inside the little umbel trap. I don't know how unusual this is but I find it kind of neat. I had to stick my finger in there to stop it from flapping in the breeze and to give my camera something to focus on!


    Here is a shot of the same plant with food in the trap


    Ah lets see... a few others
    D. orbiculata - recently fed some bits of dried bloodworm.


    D. lowriei
    Almost done emerging .. with buds coming along. Normally this species has some nice red color in the leaves with strong light.


    Some seedlings of D. menziesii coming back in their second year. They sprouted last Fall. Give you an idea how small these things are and in many cases the timeframe to grow to an appreciable size.


    And one photo from last year because I really like it and it's difficult to get good shots of the traps on the vining types!
    D. gigantea


    That's it for now. Maybe more in a few weeks or so when some of the other species make their appearances.
    Is that a Nepenthes in your pocket or you just happy to see me?

    Wow...those are all super nice! D.macrantha is like...drosera vine! You must have the patience of a mountain to be able to keep them coming back year after year

    Couple more pics. It's still been very overcast so color is not that great and it's been difficult to get decent photos. The D. gigantea are finally starting to emerge. Many of the stolonifera group are up and growing now.

    D. macrophylla subsp. monantha (from the first photo page 1) all expanded and flowering. Pot with 3 mature tubers.


    One of the D. stolonifera group. There are a variety of subspecies or species in their own right depending on how you look at it.
    Is that a Nepenthes in your pocket or you just happy to see me?
