The season has begun. :thumbsup: Much later (about a full month) than last year, but things are happening now! Here are some pictures, I put all my plants out onto my balcony (except D. paradoxa and D. 'Ladle', they're still inside...), some plants are on my other, smaller balcony (some pings..), just no more space to put them with their mates. :thumbsdown:

Pinguicula 'Sethos'

Dionaea 'Green Dragon' (strangely enough no green line..)

It's so much fun seeing my Sarras reach for the heavens! I especially am taking note of the growth rate in my largest Sarra, 'Brooks Hybrid', here is the development, so far 15 cm in 6 days,which is 2.5 cm (1 inch) every day! Posted Image

Yes Malvo, am happy to say the plant made it through the winter just fine. I hope it will get even bigger this year! Last year's mark was 88 cm, that must be beat this year!!!
