That 40% off discount makes a big difference. You get the substrate in the kit, too, right? That might not be a bad deal. The substrate and pots are surprisingly expensive.

There are a ton of growers in England. They have a lot of cultivars that can't be found here in the US. You're in prime territory to get some if you want them. You also have some sundews that are native to the british isles. Carnivores are everywhere!!

It's been a while since an update, but that is for good reason. The outside plants are totally in hibernation now. But thank goodness I have indoor plants. I'd go mad without them. I haven't shown picture of those setups in a while, so here you go!



I moved the window stand around a bit last week, but we never got sunlight to get a good picture of it until today. I like it better this way. I feel like more plants will get the sun they need this way.



The pings are also in a kinda hibernation state. It's more like they become succulent and don't feed right now. I also don't water them as much. They will pop back out of it when the weather warms up (and I start watering them again).



This guy got moved over to the other windowsill as I believe he will get more light there. He's also in a winter hibernation of sorts where he doesn't get any water until spring.



And now for the sundews under the light. This is the basic setup. All seem to be doing well in it.



This is my cape sundew 'alba.' It has very little red coloration. If you look closely you can see a slight hint of pink. Behind it is my regular cape sundew.



This is how the leaves normally look. It's grown so much since I got it earlier this year!

And it is official. My D. adelae (from Australia) has made babies. When they get bigger I'll repot them and hopefully have some to give away in the spring!

Gorgeous, Izzy! They're growing so well! I love your window setup, and your lightstand - gah! The 'dews are stunning, and I'm so in love with those little rocks you like to call plants! <3 Thanks for the update, I needed it!

Thanks! I love my sundews, too. They are in tough competition with the flytraps for my favorite. Right now the sundews are winning because the flytraps are asleep!

I don't know much about christmas cactus, but blooms are good! Houseplants are lovely!

It's been a while since I updated this simply because not much has happened. The polar vortex left a lot of growers in my area scrambling to move pots to warmer spaces, but thankfully my collection is small enough it wasn't an issue with me. A good friend of mine spent three hours pulling her pots into her garage.

The only real change I've seen is a flower! My first ping flowered! The others are too small for it, so I'll hopefully have a windowsill of flowers next year! For now, this little beauty will have to do.



P. esseriana. I wish this picture gave you more scale. The flower is rather small. Think smaller than a thumbnail.

So pretty Izzy! I've been following your thread since it started and wishing I didn't have such a black thumb when it comes to gardening.

Want to come to NH in the spring and rescue my flower gardens?
