    My small collection

    It was sunny today so I figured I should take some of the plants out for photos. N. maxima 'Wavy Leaf': The horizontal pitcher at 6:00 was one of the originals that came with the plant when I got it 5 months ago, as was the now-dead one at 3:00. Quite long-lived pitchers. N. glabrata: This...

    Pilularia globulifera ( The Pillwort)

    OK here's Fred with another wort. I have a couple of quarter trays with this fern in and can see immediately that it is super easy to identify in the wild. That's once you've knelt down on mud and decided that the mass of green growth isn't grass or reed and your high power loupe hasn't steamed...

    Ants living in my Sarracenia?

    Today, I noticed a great deal of ants swarming about my Sarracenia. I was very surprised when I peered into an old purpurea pitcher from last year, and found this! It appears that my collection has been colonized by a group of Tetramorium caespitum. (Any ant taxonomists out there to confirm...

    overwintering

    Sad to say my collection of Sarracenia species, dionaea and drosera were wiped out by the cold this past winter here in Vermont. The previous year I only lost one plant, this past year I think only 2 plants out of about 25 pulled through. I kept them high on a shelf in my attached but unheated...

    Dr. FrankenSnyder has stepped in...

    from Southern California. You all might know me from my famous work, Colchicine Treatment on Sterile Hybrid Sundews. That’s why they call me “Franken-Snyder”. I am still at it, although my monstrosity collection is much more modest these days.
