    I am lucky enough to work with Carnivorous Plants and have a large enough collection to see new stuff every day. I take this for granted some days and I tend to overthink some posts and only show off what I feel is “worthy” of a post, this means I don’t post what I see as average even though some members would love to see it.

    I’ll try to keep this thread filled with photos of my day to day experiences with Carnivorous Plants.

    To start, this was the last picture I took. A seed grown Sarracenia leucophyla from Baldwin Co Alabama still holding on.

    It was actually fairly frosty last week, but the purp purp are just fine with it.

    Organizing the 40-50 Nepenthes truncata left at work, this is the biggest from DVGs seeds.

    I believe that they germinated about 2 and half years ago, DVG made an epic cross with these, good germination and amazing growth. I grew a batch of tuncata about 9 (10?) years ago and they took about 6 years to get to this size. I had two males and a female bloom this year out of the 4 seedlings I kept.

    More interesting then exciting, an upper pitcher of Nepenthes merrilliana x carunculata robusta, taking after the rather boring uppers of merrilliana.

    That truncata is a true masterpiece at 2.5 years old, amazing growing! Can't wait until it throws out some pitchers to match those leaves.
    That was quite a seed giveaway by DVG...my seedlings are still puny compared to that.

    They are really putting on growth! Even the small ones are 6+ inches across now. Going to try to pot them all up this month.

    This is a clone that I’ve been distribution as “Big Boy” that I gave to a friend, she’s been just rocking the colour on her balcony.

    I think to keep things somewhat interesting during the sow season I’ll toss in some throwbacks. Throwback to this summer at California Carnivores, Nepenthes spathulata x jacquelineae.

    Some Nepenthes ampullaria basal rosettes, two seeds grown and one from Brad, the BE “highland” clone.

    Sort of enjoyed the colour change on these Pings going dormant.

    Spent some time cleaning up the greenhouse, funny enough the nice clean floors are blocked by plant trays.

    Well with a dormant greenhouse, now would be a good time to throwback to the spring.
