    We haven't seen any Sarracenia on the new land, but we may be planting them in appropriate areas.

    Our Drosera collection consists of the following;
    Temperate;
    -brevifolia
    -capillaris (normal form, long arm)
    -filiformis
    -filiformis var. tracyi
    -intermedia
    -rotundifolia
    and a few hybrids

    Tropical
    -dielsiana
    -nidiformis
    -capensis (normal, alba, broad leaf, narrow leaf)
    -binata var multifida
    -binata var dichotoma
    -spatulata

    I'm working on building up the dew collection. We're limited as to what we can grow since we only have a lowland greenhouse, so tuberous, pygmy, and highland dews are out of the question.

    What do you mean by "squatchy"? I love the look of frozen pines.

    Thanks! I'm going to try some HDRs next time. Mason, you should see how the plant beds are coming along. It's going to free up so much space, which will immediately be taken up by repotting!
