Coming along nicely

I’ve just been potting on a few of my darlingtonia seedlings eight months from sowing, five of which under lights. Planted several hundreds, this is one of the biggest, approximately 15 cm across and has just started putting up adult type pitchers. Well pleased.

I like the dendrobium in the background :tu:!

Seriously, that is a nice looking darlingtonia.  Hope my  seeds from you will be as good as this little plant.:biggrin:

Thanks Adrian, the Darlingtonia s really seem to like the leds, unfortunately I lost a lot of sarracenia seeds to fungus gnats, When I first saw them I foolishly thought they would provide a ready source of food for mini pitchers, only to find out too late they like to eat emerging seedling roots! 

Rob the dendrobium is a recent acquisition and  I hope it will appreciate a long bright summer and cool autumn with the Saracenia in the greenhouse and hopefully flower again next year, I have never been very successful at reflowering them in the past. Hope the seeds do well for you.
