TF members,

Some pics of my vft's doing great receiving direct sunlight for their first time, some of them are used to it, others get filtered sun while the last clouds of winter leaves, a few more weeks and they should be ready to go outside to enjoy the full perfect sun that makes our plants shine like queens! :)

About some 200 i would say in this two long pots, to the left few droseras alba, and some more VFT's, last pot has sarracenia rubra, scarlet, 44 s.flava var atropurpurea x var ornata, leucophylla tarnok, and some unknown seedlings, some seedlings of oreophilla sand mountain and leucophylla.

Beautiful start they are getting this spring! Quite the collection!

You may want to edit out the Plant name tags though! That is free advertising my friend.

Is it just me or is my sense of perception a bit screwed by your first pic of the "ridiculously long star destroyer-esque" shot of the trays where it looks like a single tray is feet upon feet upon feet long? Really how long is that puppy because I'd love a massive tray like that for my balcony too!

Thank you for the comments, they do look amazing in this set up of a very thin layer of silica on top, the rest from below is a mix of silica and peat, they seem to enjoy it at all, also the silica on top just like any white container to put plants in, keeps the over heating summer sun from penetrating the inside by reflecting the light. Though the silica might overheat, but i don't think it will have an effect on this babies.

It is a 1FT long pot, it does look very long now that i look at it again, but is not!

I can't wait either to see how they will cover the pot nicely with millions of traps going out everywhere! :)
Thank you for the comments! :)
