This is called a carnivorous balcony. :oops:
But there is a problem. The following plants are still inside, where to put them, once I dare putting them outside?

Big, so far ungerminated, pot of Byblis 'Goliath'
Drosera auriculata red clone
Drosera binata var. multifida f. extrema
Drosera. paradoxa
Drosera falconeri
× paradoxa aka Ladle
Nepenthes burbidgeae
Nepenthes ×hookeriana
Nepenthes sanguinea (two plants)
Nepenthes ventricosa

All others in my growlist are outside. Fewer than listed, some have died, will change the list soon..


click on pic :thanks:

Hey Amar..you grow your Drosera Dichotoma Giant???? In a clay pot??? Doesn't it absorb minerals that evntually kill roots??

Basel´s nicest botanical garden in my humble opinion...


...but, Amar, what´s that terrible noise in the background? Is there someone using a chainsaw to kill some trees? :thanks:


Kindest regards

Andreas
