It's been a while since I last posted here! The last couple of years has been very busy with university, fieldwork, and travelling around various parts of Europe, with much time spent away from home. While I found time to tend to and tidy the hardy plants in the greenhouse from time to time, as a result my indoor collection, which I was very proud of, has shrunk considerably due to neglect and pests. I am looking to build it up again to some extent, especially with Drosera and Utricularia (I can't believe I lost my prized flowering specimens of U. quelchii and praetermissa - there was some sort of isopod arthropod in the moss which ate at the stolons and the damage was done before I noticed! ) However, the run of nice weather recently has left things looking very nice in the greenhouse! Plenty of growth on the sarras! This is my tallest Sarra *so far* this year - but it may be beaten by an x alava. It's S. flava rugellii MK F143 'Tall clone'. Great robust pitcher, 96 cm tall, with a huge lid and lovely throat! Gorgeous tall flava ornatas This promising-looking rubricorpora seedling has been lurking unnoticed in a corner for goodness know show long until I found it and was delighted with its colour! Orange flowers of Brook's Hybrid: One of my favourites, MK H26 - flava x alata, just opened. This should go deep crimson all over later in the season. I love the small sweet red flowers of rubras en masse - in front is jonesii, left is wherryi yellow flower, back is alabamensis And wherryi 'Chatom Giant': Leucos are starting to pop open too: My first ever Darlingtonia flowers! they're lovely, and remind me of Fritillary lilies. The whole Darly plant - ridiculous numbers of stolons being produced, not that I'm complaining! More to come!!
It has been quiet on the Darlingtonia topic for some time now. Thought I ought to post some update photos of my Darlingtonia bogs, maybe to stimulate you to do the same. I love to see your Darlingtonia set ups. Here are mine. A small update, I flooded the bogs for over a week, to get rig of possible weevil grubs. On top of that I also treated the soil with nematodes after drainage of the bogs. There is no sign of disliking by the plants.
