So it's been a while since I updated this thread. I promise there are more pictures coming later. But not now. My light for the terrarium-ish thing came in today! Time to start making the stand!! :D

I've been promising pics for a while. So here they are!! First up are close ups of the new (well relatively now) pings. They have actually grown a lot since these pictures. All kinds of new leaves popping out.




P. esseriana


P. ehlersiae


P. agnata x emarginata


P. 'Pirouette'


Gratuitous flytraps!!!







Monday I got in some new plants. I worked 10.5 hours that day and got home at 9:30p, so needless to say they didn't get potted until yesterday. When I unwrapped them I got a brickton more than I expected. And I'm now thinking it is a different species than what I was told. Not the guy's fault because the two are easily confused. And I think I even got a second species in with the mix. It will be a lot easier to tell when they recover from shipping and flower. Anyway, this is the inside setup as it stands complete with new light:







My poor little D. tokaiensis that has been recovering inside is looking great!



That one in the lower right is clearly something else. I have a few ideas, but I'll know more when the plant recovers.

I had so many left over and I just couldn't throw them away, so I potted them up outside. I think this plant is a hybrid of a temperate and subtropical dew, so it has a decent chance of surviving the winter here. And if it does, I'll need to get rid of some. You said something about wanting plants, too, Marie?

Are al those green flecks in the D. tokaiensis pot seedlings?! If so, yeah I'd say it recovered.

Actually no. It sounds reasonable, but no. Those green flecks are actually a terrestrial bladderwort. I don't know which species because I've never bothered with bladderworts. They make itty bitty white-ish flowers, and I don't have the patience to ID them. They're invasive in all of my pots outside. Hope they can survive winters here!

EDIT: But I might try growing some sundews from seeds next year. That seems to be the easiest way to get most of the temperate ones.

Utricularia are CPs too! Give them some love! Collect them all!

White flowers should make it easier to ID though. U. olivacea maybe?
