May in the greenhouse


Recommended Posts

With the poor weather things aren't as far along as I'd wish, but we're getting there. Here are a few photos of the state of my greenhouse at the moment. With a bit more sun hopefully the colours will improve.

S. flava var. rubricorpora (should colour up nicely)

There's a S. flava var. rugelii in there somewhere

S. leucophylla 'Helmut's delight'

An unknown hybrid with a very wide neck and hood. I might like it more if it had some colour other than green.

And even 'Othello' is starting to grow more adult pitchers

Hey there!

Beautiful plants, good job!

Love your Helmut :)

I guess mine is gonna show pitchers like that as well this year, but since I'm growing everything outside, things a bit slow to start this year.

Cheers,

Stefan

We're having the same lack of sun problems here in the UK, many of my plants are a bit behind as well, but hopefully things will turn around soon.

Cheers

Plants are looking healthy-I espeically like the flavas in the first picture! Also very jealous of your leuco Helmut's delight-that clone hasn't seem to make it's way to the other side of the pond yet.

How has the weather been for the past month in your area?

I was pleasantly surprised how well it's grown this year. I only got it over the winter and it's been the first leuco to develop pitchers. The rest are weeks behind.

We've had the wettest April on record apparently. It's also been cold - especially overnight, but there has been the odd bright day. Mostly I've kept the greenhouse door shut to compensate. So, not great. But at least it has been good today. Back to rain on Monday :thumbsdown:

I got a S. oreophila 'Sand Mountain' last year from Hampshire Carnivores and it was my favourite plant last year. I also got one of their all green maximas to go with my Slack's clone that came from Southwest Carnivores. The Slack cultivar is rapidly turning into a triffid. This year is it's thirds season with me. Was average the first year, fairly standard last year but this year there's loads of growing points plus the rhizome is errupting in little red 'acne'. I'm assuming it's an explosion of new growing points. So the next two years will be interesting with that plant.
