    Thank you for the correction. The guy I bought this from said he order it from logees and it was labeled nepenthes Alata so I went with it. I’m glad you stopped by and again thank you for the name correction.

    I was checking out the “Groups” section of the forum and saw the last post was in 2017 so I wasn’t sure if those meetings got fazed out over time. If they are still going on I’d love to link, learn, and discuss nepenthes. Thank you for stopping by Grey Moss

    Cephalotus Follicularis 'ABG clone'

    Sarracenia x Daina’s Delight
    This was labeled Sarracenia x Dana’s Delight but doesn’t look like the other Sarracenia x Dana’s Delight I have. Any Sarracenia experts know the proper name for this. Thank you

    Drosera Dichotoma 'Giant'

    The NYC group is fairly active on FB, if you have an account you can probably find them there.
    And the second plant looks like "Daina's Delight," just one that didn't receive as strong a lighting as the other (you'll want to get them all into full sun or the equivalent for them to do truly well, unless the LED's are very tall and very powerful).
    Everything has a reason, whether big or small. Never underestimate the power of what is or is not.
    There is far more to everything than meets the eye.

    @ hcarlton: I have 2 1ft x 1ft 125w LED panels and need to set up my 2 ft 4 bulb T5 HO in between the led panels. One of the LED panels also has IR and UV diode’s which I know UV helps with nectar production in other plants so I’m hoping that will carry over to the cps. They get 3 hours of direct sunlight (sun comes in my east facing window). Thank you for letting me know it’s Sarracenia x Daians Delight greatly appreciate it. I’ll check out there FB page and again thank you!
