    Glabrata upper

    It's been a long time in coming for my plants to have uppers.. I grow them in terrible conditions for the most part outside. I get most of them all as 3-4" plants 4-5 years ago, and have been growing them out since. The glabrata I got from a grower here I think 3-4 years back as a little rooted cutting, and it's finally making the nice pale uppers I love it for!

    so pretty
    Come to me flies and crawling bugs. This plant wants to give you great big hugs
    Aren't I pretty, don't I smell good? I'd come to you if I could
    But I can't so you must come to me, I'm sure we will get along splendidly

    Is it bad that the first thought that came into my head when I saw that pitcher was "wow that's huge!" lol. My glabrata split into two so pitchers got tiny. I am finally getting back up into the original 3/4" to 1" area again though. Took me about 8 months since the split.

    To be fair, my plants have been so small for so long that 2" still impresses me! The 6-8" pitchers on some of the other plants boggle the mind.
