  1. «Holy hell.....+500cm of snow??? » «Got a question, the way the leaves of your D. anglica all radiate outwards makes me think they look more like D. intermedia. Hm, just a thought, but you are sure they are D. anglica?» Yes, I'm sure these are Drosera anglica. My peat bog is still new (well, the peat moss in it), so the peat moss is loose and when it rains, there's peat moss everywhere on my plant's leaves. It makes them heavy (that's why Drosera leave radiate outwars).
  2. «What is the pipe in the corner for? I saw you mention that you had some flooding and then showed that pipe, is it something to do with that?» The pipe allow's water to remain at a certain level, so no flooded peat bog anymore.
  3. 19 July 2008: Some news. Everything growing well. Okay, here’s what survived to our Canadian winter (514 cm of snow, a new record). Dionaea muscipula: My 2 Dionaea died during winter Drosera rotundifolia: They’re all dead. I think it’s because I let them make flowers last summer (pumping too much energy). Drosera intermedia: Most of them died, but a few survived (3-4). Probably for the same reason than rotundifolia (flowers + Canadian winter = bad) Drosera anglica: All survived, even if they made some flowers last year. Utricularia dichotoma: Holy cow! They survived! Dichotoma can survive to -20 C for a few weeks. It’s growing like crazy and making flower. Sarracenia Danas delight: Alive, but looks bad Sarracenia oreophylla: Alive, excellent health Sarracenia judith hindle: Alive Sarracenia pupurea: Survived, but look like it’s going to die Sarracenia minor: Alive, not strong Sarracenia flava (2 clones): Alive (Ornata suck, flava is awesome) And new plants added this summer: Drosera filiformis: 8-10 filiformis, they’re growing fast Darlingtonia californica: A medium sized one, grow in full sun and already have 4 new pitchers. It should survive winter. Dionaea muscipula (akai ruy, dentate and ordinary): Growing fast and big. The biggest one have 1 ½ inches traps. Pinguicula vulgaris: 5 little ping Sarracenia rubra: a small one Drosera capensis: 2 small capensis My peat bog in general: Pinguicula vulgaris: Utricularia dichotoma that survived winter!!! (-20 Celsius for a few weeks + 500 cm of snow): Sarracenia oreophila: Drosera intermedia: Sarracenia flava copper top: Drosera filiformis: Dionaea: Darlingtonia californica: Drosera anglica:
  4. All your vft are doing well, but the sarr didn't survive.
  5. I'm planning to add a lots of plants in my peat bog this summer. It looks like an unknow Utricularia survived! It's hidden in the moss. My peat bog in general: Dionaea muscipula: Drosera anglica: Drosera filiformis: Pinguicula grandiflora: Darlingtonia californica: Dionaea spot: Sarracenia oreophila: Unknow Utricularia :
  6. Got my new camera: Canon 40D. Be prepared for awesome pics! Colors test: Nepenthes maxima: Two night shots in Old Quebec: Full resolution: Drosera anglica Tiger beatle Dionaea trap from my peat bog Here's some pics from my Deviantart account. You should take a look sometime in the summer if you want some carnivorous plants wallpapers and take a look at my pics in High definition. http://dom1234.deviantart.com/ Drosera anglica Château Frontenac (or Frontenac Castle) in old Québec: Creepy fountain:
  7. bucky78: Me too (lol, sorry. Couldn't resist to make that joke.)
  8. I'm just curious, how much snow do you have in an average winter?
  9. November 22: First snow of the winter: 15 cm. I used a rubber sheet for an extra protection agains't the cold. December 01: I've added some snow on my peat bog to protect it from the cold (-19 C) December 21: We had 2 snow storm this week. The first one gave us 40 cm of snow in one day and the other one 35 cm. It's unusual to have this much snow so early in winter (160 cm in total oe 5 feet). The peat bog is under the snow moutain.
  10. Drosera anglica: Utricularia intermedia: Unknow Utricularia : What we built:
  11. Here some pics of the peat bog where I worked as a biology technician for summer. We've also built the structure that you saw in the last pics. Now I know how to use a hammer :) Peat pog and lake: Saracenia purpurea: Red sphagnum: Utricularia cornuta:
  12. Hi! I'm back. Here some news: The peat bog is doing well, same thing for my terrarium. Looks like my father was able to take good care of 'em. General view: Shadow plants (utricularia and pinguicula) Saracenia purpurea: Saracenia oreophila: Saracenia flava 'cupper head' Drosera rotundifolia: Drosera intermedia: Drosera anglica: Utricularia longifolia: Utricularia sandersonii
