G'day everyone, hope you're all well.
Just thought I would share these with you all, as spring has well and truly set in in our neck of the woods, and in our sunroom the temp and humidity are both nice and high now until summer (when temps soar and humidity drops through the floor) and the better weather has meant some of my more unhealthy plants have recovered from their various ailments and kicked off again.
The first is a plant I had given up for dead, an inermis x bongso which suffered chemical burn when bleach was accidentally sprayed on it last year. I figured I'd let it alone and hope for the best and luckily it bounced back this last fortnight, producing this small, forming pitcher and two new leaves.
A ventrata bought for $12 from some hardware store somewhere. It stopped pitchering and I'd worried I was killing it somehow, but then three little basals popped out the bottom!
Last but not least a maxima x ventricosa which has had the worst luck of any plant I have ever owned. I had left in the care of my sister last summer (with aforementioned soaring heat and plummeting humidity) who left it on a windowsill where it was scorched to a crisp. It recovered slowly, and when it finally had two new traps I accidentally dropped it and snapped the new leaves off. I left it alone and it now has three new traps forming and is generally looking much happier than it has been previously.
So! Although not the most impressive specimens, they are all troopers and I am glad they have all recovered.
All the best
