    Hi looking good...

    I only have one question here, what do you do when the winter comes as they all don't like it so cold...

    Do you re-dig them back up again... ?

    Well it does grow outside in San Diego where the lowest temp it sees is 45 in the dead of night, so it never really gets too cold. I think the Darlingtonia might still be pretending to be asleep, but the Dionaea and Drosera took about a month off at the end of December til mid January, and then started growing again. I do have a Drosera capillaris bud hiding in there somewhere that's still asleep that comes from Meadowview Research Station grounds, so maybe it needs to be dormant a little longer from being for a little further North.

    OK, I've finally finished repotting and planting my new VFT minibog - here it is (sorry, night pic )


    It contains my new star, Dionaea muscipula 'Korean Melody Shark':






    So the inhabitants are Darlingtonia, a forked leaf dew that may be Drosera binata "dichotoma", a random volunteer sundew that might be D. aliciae, D. capillaris from Meadowview Bio Research Station area, D. intermedia x capillaris, D.spathulata x capensis, a random cute red ground-covering weed that sprouted up, some live sphag, and the following VFTs: Dionaea 'Royal Red', D, 'Sawtooth', D. 'Big Mouth', D. 'B52', D. 'Korean Melody Shark', & D. 'Pink Venus'.
