    "Death cube" drosera identification needed

    My local nursery was having a 30% off sale on some plants and I decided to pick up a "death cube" VFT and Drosera. Does anyone know what species of Drosera this is? My guess would be spatulata. Thanks!

    S. x readii pitcher formation (division 1)

    I did not have high hopes for this piece of rhizome when it broke off from its parent plant. It was ripped out of the soil three times by some creature (probably a squirrel) and was looking a little worse for wear.

    My experience and what I've learned about mealybugs (ugh!)

    Hey guys, was checking out my Okee Giant today and noticed this nasty looking wart like thing on a rising pitcher. Any idea what it is? Some type of pest or a genetic fluke? Thanks!

    S. minor var. okefenokeensis (Ware County, GA - Unique seedling) lid coloration

    Bay Area, CA checking in!

    Hello! In April 2010 I was walking to the top of campus at SFSU and passed by the University green house. They were having a plant sale and I decided to check it out. I ended up purchasing a Sarracenia x readii and had no idea what I was getting myself into or how I  would get swept up with the...
