    Great photos. Glad the rare Darlingtonia continues to flourish along accessible hiking trails where we can enjoy seeing them.

    D. rotundifolia cutting - dormancy or not?

    Beautiful plant, congrats. Your photo clearly shows the plant is already beginning to form a bud. It would be best to keep it inside and let it develop further. My photos for comparison: Green plant in active growth and reddening plant with bud forming.

    Is this root rot?

    Evil spirits maybe? Just kidding. I get problems with fungi on my sundews too, in high humidity. D. spatulata variants are most sensitive. My D. capillaris are more tolerant.

    Parasitic Plant

    Good eye Mark. That one length I took to grow was yellow-green, because it was shaded. Sadly it failed to attach to the host, but I got a few seed for another try.

    Parasitic Plant

    @Tanukimo, I wish you luck finding some you can reach. I saw more Dodder, AKA Vampire Plant, along a trail side; A patch sapping the life out of poison oak.

    Parasitic Plant

    Thanks @Tanukimo Spotted more growing in a roadway center divider on California Buckwheat. I am notifying the Conservancy of this occurrence in hope of helping relocate it. I’ve watched some great Youtube vids about this strange plant. Wish I had a more suitable growing space for it myself.

    Red sphagnum - really strange and/or interesting

    Here is mine. Don’t be alarmed, it’s not really blood. Naturally colored, believe it or not. Sphagnum rubellum from Oregon.

    Parasitic Plant

    Photoed this one yesterday: Dodder on iceplant. Might be fun to put it on a houseplant. But not on one of my prized CPs.

    D. capillaris breeding

    Thanks @hcarlton. A polyploid D. capillaris complex which includes hybrids with intermedia and maybe even spatulata? Right, capillaris is surely just a single extremely variable and adaptable species with varying forms for occupying differing niches. While visiting the Florida Panhandle I...
