U. sandersonii seems to never stop blooming.


With spring back the U. bisquamata is blooming again.


U. livida is sending up its first flowers. They're very white flowers.


D. coccicaulis has settled in nicely while I was gone over break


D. affinis


D. madagascariensis


The newest N. talangensis x robcantleyi pitcher


Red nectar being produced by N. sanguinea


The newest N. ramispina x ventricosa pitcher. This has been a nice, easy plant to grow.

Beautiful collection! Are these growing in individual containers in plastic tubs?

I grow all the utricularia and drosera in individual pots in deep tubs yes.


The largest of the drosophyllum that have sprouted for me so far. I hope that these do well.


A pot of p. lusitanica that sprouted just a few weeks ago. The leaves are starting to become distinctive.


The first flower my sethos x gypsicola has made in my care. I like the shade of purple.




The sharpest possible picture I managed to take of these tiny flowers.

A few new things to show today.


A tiny, new N. ephippiata


Newest N. densiflora X robcantleyi pitcher




First N. singalana pitcher. I'm glad it hasn't reacted to all the hot nights lately


N. truncata x mira putting out big pitchers for a small plant. Looking foreward to see how large it can ultimately get.


N. platychila


Fresh flower off a P. sethos x gypsicola


P. Zecheri going dormant suddenly

That newset N. platychila pitcher looks kinda off to me, it sort of reminds me of the cross with N. burbidgeae. I really like the U. subulata flowers actually, I only have a cleistogamous form so I never see those flowers!

I'll be keeping an eye on it then. Burbidgeae hybrids are cool but I do want a pure platychila eventually. You know what features would definitively show it not to be the pure species?

Love all the plants. Great shots of the D.Pulchella. Lost all mine this summer. I was told to put them in full sun as they would love it. What they didnt tell me was thay dont like a lot of heat. Needless to say it got quite hot one day and I lost them all in one shot.

P. Aphrodite



P. Emarginata although it doesn't match any of the photos I've seen online.


New N. Maxima pitcher


This N. Fallax/Stenophylla came in this week and it's the hairiest nep I've seen yet.


I got the U. Nelumbifolia at the NECPS for an unbelievable price. It's now my favorite utric. The stolons are really different from all the other utricularia I have so far.

Yeah, that's no emarginata; never mind the pattern (which is a crucial part), but the shape is entirely wrong as well.

Out of curiosity, is that maxima the BE-3067 form? Looks similar to mine when it was a bit younger.

You're exactly right. I got it because I had one in my old collection that I ended up really liking. I actually bought that one as an Eymae 8 or 9 years ago now. I'm hoping that I can recreate the colors that I saw in the old one.


Here's the last photo I have of the old Maxima in my old setup. The pitchers ended up getting around 8-9 inches tall.
