I suppose it's about time so I'll start with some recent pictures. Quite a few actually.
Plants waking up outdoors.
Some native Oregon sphagnum I'm growing with the outdoor plants, covered with netting to discourage those pesky birds.
My crazy S. "Daina's Delight" growing more than 100...

If you have any suggestions for ways to improve the organization of my growlist, please let me know!
Byblis guehoi, West Kimberley
Byblis lamellata, Eneabba, WA, BCP S064
Been wanting to break into these for awhile, and finally got a chance when the ICPS seed bank opened back up in late July. I did some reading, including the stickied thread by Pyro here in this sub-forum, and this settled and filtered out of all the agregate:
They are in a sand-heavy mix...
I have the following species for trade. All of the tuberous species are dormant.
D. abberans (used to be whiitakeri subsp. abberans)
D. menziesii subsp. menziesii ( plants get very red, almost crimson late in the growing season)
D. erythrorhiza subsp...
I have 5 packets of Drosera hookeri seed to give away. This is a great starter species for those looking to get into tuberous Drosera. These seeds do not need any special treatment in order to germinate as many other tuberous species do and will often flower in their 1st year if grown well. It's...
Hello! I picked up some tubers of this plant from Mach and last year I got them to flower and set seed. That seed was stored dry and warm, I just planted some and the rest of the pack is up for grabs IF
a) You have given to me in the past
b) You have traded with me in the past
After speaking with several members here among other growers, I have realized that there are more misconceptions about successfully growing these plants than I had thought. I wrote the care sheet below last year for the NECPS members to use as a guide for their cultivation and I hope that it can...
Once I was in a store and there was a corner in which some really strange plants were standing.
They shall eat meat or something like that and they are probably dangerous. No risc no fun. I took one of the glistening with the sticky leaves.
About 10 years later ......
I have the following to trade for established plants of N. gracilis (any form) and/or N. ampullaria (any form).
Drosera menziesii subsp. menziesii (dormant tubers)
Drosera abberans 'Pyrete Ranges, Victoria, Aust.' (dormant tubers)
Drosera cistiflora pink flower (as summer dormant roots)...
My tubers were just peaking out of the sand. Today a rouge wind storm came out of nowhere and knocked over the pot. Only half of there were knocked out but I'm sure all were disturbed greatly. I know the last thing these dews like is to have their roots disturbed. I repoted everything but how...
*Sorry, I meant D. hookeri.
So I generously received some D. hookeri tubers from kula a while back. I have been lucky enough to get a lot of them to sprout. However, I had this pot in my cool basement, and was waiting for them to pop up. It looks like I missed the mark though, because the stems...
D. regia with bloodworm
D. hookeri seedling

Following my -stravaganza theme of thread titles, I am starting a thread for my sundews. Up next are my pings and heliamphora. I wouldn't say I have a lot of sundews but my collection is steadily growing. I grow all my sundews in my homemade grow rack which I'll show a picture of in this thread...
My grow list
N. sanguinea ( a red form)

N. ventricosa x maxima

D. binata “marston's dragon”
I have approximately 20 tubers to distribute and I believe I will go with 4 winners/5 tubers; however to make it more interesting after I pick the 4 winners 1 of them will receive an extra tuber maybe 2. Winners can either choose to paypal $6 shipping for priority or SASE.
I have some extra Drosera hookeri (formerly peltata) tubers to give away. Harvested them earlier this summer and they are showing signs of breaking dormancy. I got my original plants from a CP plant nursery and collected seeds. Seeds germinated easily made lots of tubers. This...
D. filiformis ssp. filiformis
D. filiformis var. tracyi
D. capensis 'Typical"
D. stoloifera ssp. stoloinfera
