Some recent pictures of my surviving VFTs.
My Dente is all but gone, there's a 1MM sized trap on a tiny little thing which I placed inside a container just now, but, yeah. My Akai Ryu is completely gone, AND there were bugs in the soil. I really, really need to find a local source for a safe pesticide. I plan on re-purchasing them in a few days.
B52 (Inside plant)
B52 (Outside plant)
I repotted my B52 outside and split it in 2 while I was out there. I brought half of the plant back in. This is my first time splitting a plant, so I'm a bit hesitant.
The Red Piranha is really starting to take off. It's not as red as I would like, however, the grow lights are enough to make it moderately happy but it's just not quite enough. It's too small to go outside, however.
This little dude isn't happy, I don't know why. 3 of it's traps turned pitch black, I trimmed 2 of those stems off and left 1. It may have gotten some tap water spilled on it, I flushed the pot quite extensively but it may still need work. I may also need to repot it, it was in the same area as the Dente and Akai Ryu (read: bugs of some kind in the soil).
Ideally it'll be ready to move outside permanently by next spring, we'll see, however.
I thought people were joking about Drosera capensis being a weed, btw. Either D. capensis or Pygmy Gemmaes got in like every single one of my pots, it's nuts.
Other random pictures:
My Nep. ventricosa (ventrata?) (it's from a lowes deathcube):
My Nep has a baby plant coming up from it's base.
S. Leucophylla 'Titan':
A recent purchase, growing outside full time. It shares a 10" foam pot with it's bigger brother.
This guy needs a haircut but I don't dare cut off anything green. I think this is TC, I got it from a local grocery store.
My Pygmys are pissed off at me, they may have had some tap water spill on them, or the temperatures (which have been getting up there) may have hurt them. Next gemmae season I am going to spread these out in a ton of different pots just in case.
