    Spring leaves . . .

    Here are a few shots of flytraps with their first sets of Spring leaves -- a bit late in Northern California, after a long wet winter. The far larger traps will come with High Summer and the Fall. In the past few years, I have moved on to larger and deeper pots with annual re-pottting; and the plants have grown far more robust; and their root systems, absolutely enormous.

    Dionaea muscipula cv. "Big Mouth"


    D. muscipula cv. "B52"

    Thanks and I honestly don't know what species of Drosera are in that particular pot, since there are volunteers of several species that either came with shipments of live moss, other plants, or seeded from plants of my own . . .

    Oh only noticed the Drosera in the bottom picture i didn't see the one above the bottom picture. Well that one looks like a Drosera venustaor, or a Drosera rotundiflia. Most likely Drosera rotundifolia since it is growing outside.

    It is definitiely not D. rotundifolia, since that also occurs in far Northern California, near the Oregon border -- along with Darligntonia; and those leaves are far more distinctive. Whatever species it is, it is in dozens of pots with more to come. Several have already flowered . . .
