  1. 4 months on and Drosophyllum doing well. Now to get them through the winter! I have a cunning plan to get them into a bigger pot next spring without disturbing the roots.
  2. Thanks for the info Andrzej, Fancy doing some swapping of tubers next summer? I'll hopefully have a few D. Modesta. My D. Squamosa has emerged at the start of October this year. A full month earlier than the last two years.
  3. It doesn't have a basal rosette. I'm pretty sure it is D. modesta. But thanks for the suggestion.
  4. This tuberous sundew has come up in my pot of Utricularia blanchetti this summer. Still growing even though it is July, while my other tuberous sundews have gone in to dormancy. Can anyone give me an ID. Is it D. modesta? Many thanks.
  5. A few Sarracenia's that are catching my eye at the moment.
  6. Thanks Damien. I think I'm going to turn all my pygmies into 'biotopes' now. One success this year is my D. Slackii sending up a flower spike. This is the first I've managed and I have had it for 5 years! So apparently the trick is to leave it in the greenhouse over winter.
  7. As promised. My Utricularia aureomaculata. The first bloom blasted as a result of moving from work. I'd say it is about 1cm across.
  8. Made a couple of selections
  9. Thanks Ada. I just thought it would be interesting. The plants were under lights for the first year and have just had their first dormancy. I also need to make some room for the next batch coming through. The pitchers they are producing are about 15/20 cm tall, so not bad.
  10. Is there any way of making a poll on the forum? Selfishly asking as later on in the year I'm going to select some 2 yr old Sarracenia seedlings. I thought a forum poll might be interesting /helpful. Many thanks
