    ooh D. whittakeri Nice!
    Great beginner tuberous sundew too since it doesn't mind being wet while dormant. D. peltata pink flower is another which is weed for many.

    Overcast and crummy but here are some more:

    D. macrophylla Wongan Hills
    The few curled leaves are from the freeze dried bloodworms for food.


    Lower portion of tangled D. macrantha on a stick.


    The upper portion. Gone over the top already on a 3' bamboo stake..!


    One of my favorites poking up now:
    D. orbiculata buds/flowers. The leaves are just starting to come out.


    Close up of the flower


    Enjoy!
    Is that a Nepenthes in your pocket or you just happy to see me?

    Wow..orbiculata! Now that is a rare one in collections. I used to grow this plant but the tuber decided to divide itself while in dormancy then subsequently perished.

    Do your plants produce viable seed?

    So so Beautiful...It's a shame these are not that common.

    I've just planted macrophylla, rosulata and rupicola tubers but nothing yet...Kinda late I guess but planted as soon as they arrived. Not very encouraging; especially as they are all new to me

    Thanks for sharing, amazing cultivation.


    ps. I didn't know they could sense bloodworms like that, very interesting...I will try with my menziesii.

    They will produce seed but need to be cross pollinated as they are not self fertile. D. orbiculata though is stubborn to germinate. It also doesn't seem particularly inclined to do much multiplying in the pot either ;<

    Update on D. orbiculata which have finished flowering and are now expanding leaves.
    overcast today so not the best photos unforunately.
