I was very pleased to find a misplaced packet of Drosera regia seed I purchased from Silverhill Seeds about 4 years ago while sorting older supplies.
These are all the more special since they came from Silverhill Seeds.
A good number are germinating, hoping for a decent amount of variation...

Or, what I like to respond when people ask, "How was your vacation?"
These plants were kept in my highland terrarium for 2 weeks while I was away. Everything is automated except for watering - which I took care of before leaving - and nighttime cooling, which I do using ice packs. The night...

I'm not sure why the big one died while the little one is still alive?
Could it be a lack of food? I notice they catch some insects but not a lot. They have to compete amongst flytraps, sarracenias, and other drosera for food.
This is my first regia flower! I have only one regia, so kinda excited to see it in bloom.

When I decided to restart my CP collection I had some seeds stored in my refrigerator for up to 17 years. Some were from the ICPS seedbank and some were from my old collection in the mid to...
I've been growing carnivorous plants for over 10 years. Most of that time I lived in Brooklyn where my growing area was limited to two small windowsills. I moved upstate a few years ago and my collection has grown exponentially. I am interested in all types of carnivorous plants but...
