Hehe. I've been holding out on you guys (well not really--more like trying not to tease you). Last Thursday my VFT from the benefit auction came in. I potted them up after dark and left before I could get pictures on Friday. So now that I'm back (and the frickin sun is out again), I have pictures!!!
This is D. 'petite dragon.' It's my first VFT cultivar! It's basically a tiny version of the 'aka ryu' (red dragon) cultivar. This little guy tends to clump and stay close to the ground. It'll be funny to see him next to...
D. 'A2'. This guy will get to be pretty darn large. It's not a common cultivar (and was actually a freebie! ^-^ ). It's actually one of the parent plants of one of the largest cultivars around, D. 'B52' (I guess someone wasn't feeling creative with names
I won't really get to see these beauties shine this year as the growing season is coming to a close here. We usually get our first frost in the next 3-4 weeks. I'm pulling in some plants this week, but unlike the pond (which is completely shut down in the winter) I'll still have some carnivorous babies inside!
My S. 'frogman' finally made a pitcher!! I was worried it may have been harboring some disease or something because it did nothing for the first month I had it here. But is has finally put up a (very nice) pitcher!
Now I see why it's called 'frogman'. The top kinda looks like a frog!
