    My Drosophyllum

    This pot of drosos are looking a little messy, but it is flowering again this year.

    Here are a couple seedlings from 4 seed dropped into a pot outside not meant for drosos and left outside forgotten and exposed to the elements all winter. Hmmm, I think I will try this again instead of actually trying to germinate seed inside the house in "special" soil medium and "contolled" conditions.

    This seedling is from seed planted inside the house under "controlled" conditions, haha.

    Looks great! Reminds me more of a pot of grass than a carnivore because of its vigor.

    Good growing,
    Kenny

    Woot looking might fine! Looks like you need to have a 'controlled burn' on that mature specimen ;>


    I have to start a few more plants..

    I am considering trying a large pot out on the deck this year which I can toss into the garage to overwinter.
    Is that a Nepenthes in your pocket or you just happy to see me?

    I am trying to start one for you, haha. Running out of things to bring to the rendezvous anyway.

    It does kinda look like that, haha. There are technically two original plants from seed in there somewhere, one of which put out an offshoot from the stem at a very early age making it look like three plants in the pot. The rest are offshoots that grew out from flower stalks and stems last year.

    Last year they sprouted easy for me, this year I tried different methods and not as much luck except for the ones I threw outside and ignored.

    Yeah, thought I would go for that unorganized look. Have you put yours outside yet?

    Controlled burn, It needs something. Wonder if it would sprout anew if I torched it? hmmm.

    Yeah, I pull mine into the unheated garage after the first couple frosts and put them in a large south-facing window under a shop light. I spray them with 1/4 strength orchid fert every so often through winter and provide an occasional bug or two like tiny baby crickets and they are happy.

    Do you need seed?
