some recent pictures from my collection

Recommended Posts

Hi,

 

many of my Sarracenia already produced some nice pitchers. Here is one of my (at the moment) favorite S. flava var. rugelli.

The plant in the picture is F18 from Mike King.

 

Some of my wintergrowing Drosera are still active, amongst them some forms of D. trinveria. Here is a picture of the flowers of a form from Bain's Kloof.

Also, the first Utricularia are starting to flower. The following picture shows the yellow flowered form of Utricularia livida from Zambia

I am only growing this plant for some months, so i was especially happy to see a flower. Btw, that's about the smalles utricularia flower i have see in my collection

And finally, a flower of U. asplundii.

Since having seen Geissorhiza radians and monanthos in South Africa i got an interest in that genus as well. At the moment i am growing six forms of them. Geissorhiza darlingensis is the first one, that ever flowered for me. In nature it grows together with the red form of Drosera cistiflora close to the town of Darling, north of Cape Town.

Hello,

 

thanks for the nice comments everyone!

 

Btw, Fernando. I grew the lime flowered U. livida from seeds i got in early 2007 :wink:    Actually, that's the first flower, that has opened for me. I had many scapes, but they mostly died before the flowers could open. Not sure if others, that grow this one, made the same experience!?

Hi,

here are some pictures! Firstly a comparison between the "normal" venusta and the white flowered form:

The plant to which the second flower belongs looks like that:

And some more Sarracenia-pictures:

I grew this plant from seeds several years ago.

And finally something noncarnivorous. I got this plant as Bletilla striata:

Drosera are certainly my favorite genus. Here are some pictures taken today:
