    Wild lutea x caerulea hybrids?

    I believe that I've read of this hybrid in captivity, but can it happen with wild plants?

    Drosera brevifolia availability?

    What is the availability of D. brevifolia in the hobby? I've looked for it, and haven't had much luck finding it. The only place I managed to find it was relatively expensive. Is this considered a rare species, or is it just not desired? I'm only asking out of sheer curiosity; I figured that...

    Sopchoppy FL and carnivorous plants?

    Hello all, I'm seriously considering moving over to the panhandle of Florida in the next couple of years, and there's a little town called Sopchoppy right in the Apalachicola National Forest. It has a population under 1000 and is only about a half hour from Tallahassee, but as mentioned, is...

    Potting and growing questions when in native plant range

    Hello all I live in NE Florida where I have a bunch of native CPs already. I've collected some that are growing on my land as well as recently purchased a few Sarrs to round out my collection of native Florida species. I'm wanting to pot them up so I can have them in my back yard to enjoy...

    Yard o' Pings

    I've been promising the pics of my Yard o' Pings for the better part of the summer, but I keep forgetting them. This evening I was mowing the lawn and saw the plants and remembered that a bunch of you guys wanted to see them, so here they are! About half of these pics show plants that have...

    Naturally occurring Sarracenia hybrids?

    Hello all, Is there a resource known to this community that lists what species are capable of hybridizing on their own in nature? I realize that with artificial pollination most species can be crossed. That's not the intention of this post however; I'm hoping to discover which plants share...

    Naturalizing and propagating VFTs on private acreage in FL- pointers pls

    Hello all, I am considering attempting to naturalize a population of VFTs in my front yard here in the swamp in NE Florida. I already have pings and sundews growing in that part of the yard and I have several sarrs growing elsewhere as well. There are also bladderworts in the swamp at the...

    S. minor vs. Okee Giant and anthocyanin free...

    I have some questions I hope that this fine community can help me to address. The first is how do I differentiate between normal S. minor and the Okee giants? The minors on my land are regularly over two feet tall, but I am not very close to the Okefenokee. The second question I have is how...

    Ethics of habitat restoration...?

    Hello all. As some of you may know from my other recent thread, I have recently completed my second tour of duty in the Army and I am now home after eight years away. Now that I am back, I am once again managing my grandmother's acreage for her, acreage that is prime habitat for CPs. The...

    Wild Sarracenia minor shots

    I shot some pics of a few wild Sarracenia minor today from my grandmother's property. I've known of and tended to some of these plants for nearly 25 years now. I recently spent eight years in the Army, during which time I didn't tend them. This is the first time that I had a chance to view...

    Glowing traps...

    So, I discovered this today, and either I have a brand new, very interesting cultivar, or my flytrap caught a firefly! I noticed my trap was glowing and decided to snap a picture of it and share it with you guys. Do you think I have anything to worry about from the firefly's chemicals hurting...

    My bigmouth, one month later... act now, and see a freak trap!

    Here it is a month ago... ...and here it is now. (ba BAM!) It's starting to color up too. In bright light, the insides of the traps are distinctly pink, and the trigger hairs are now purple. And here you go, a tried and true in the "flesh" VFT freak trap. It is halfway split down the...

    My sundew younglings

    2x D. capensis alba, D capensis red, D. filiformis tracyi, D. binata, all in three inch pots. Only my tracyi is growing slowly, the rest are exploding. The binata came to me with no live leaves a month ago, and the capensis' all lost all their leaves to my cat about the same time. I'm hoping...

    My bigmouth

    That's my bigmouth. She's growing in a five inch pot. I did have two main growth points, but over the past month one died and was replaced by several baby sprouts. I hate how weak my coloring is and how long my petioles are. I can't wait till the weather gets better here so they can go...

    Gah! How big will it get?!

    This is my S. flava, of who I could not take a good picture of even if my life depended on it. I was told when I bought this that I was being upgraded from "medium" to "large", but I never expected the plant to be this big! The larger leaf is already over a foot tall (that's a five inch pot!!)...

    How's my raff look?

    How does this plant look? I know the large pitcher is on it's way out, but how about that new one that's inflating? It really hasn't done anything in about a month, do they grow slow or did I lose that one to climatization? There is a bud of a pitcher that looks just like the inflating one, I...

    New raff, does it look healthy?

    All three of the pitchers. The small pitcher in the bottom right of the other pic. Do this plants pitchers look healthy? I'm a bit concerned that it may not be hardened off. When I unpacked it, that large pitcher was almost all white, but since I took it out of it's humidity dome, that...

    New plants!

    I'm expecting D. binata, D. filiformis white, S. flava, and N. rafflesiana them at the end of next week. Needless to say, I'm excited! My collection will be getting about 40% of what I want it to be for now when I get these plants. I just had to share! I'll post pics of all my plants when...
