Pretty dazzling stuff! I really like the P. gypsicola and all of the tuberous 'dews. My D. cistiflora "purple flower" is also dragging on as a small rosette this year but it is finally showing signs of getting bigger.

Time for a big picture dump! I got myself a nice macro lens so I can get better close-up shots and at some point will start experimenting with focus stacking to make them even better.

I have no idea what's up with this plant. It doesn't seem to produce any chlorophyll so all the leaves have a sickly pinkish color, but it still grows at a normal pace and produces dew.

My mutant seedling with 4 growth points (I think one aborted so far)

A hitchhiker seedling that came with another air plant. ID unknown but very likely an ionantha.

I see a root! Maybe this plant will actually start growing again.

Drosera adelae by Nimbulan, on Flickr

Some orchids that were growing in unsuitable wet conditions for quite a long period of time. I'll be getting them into better soil this weekend and hopefully they'll grow better.

This one's grown up fast. It's somewhere around 42 days old and will have its first flower open in a matter of days.

Looking good. A lot of good flower pictures in this update. Those warburgii and blanchetii flowers are my favorite of the group.

A nice update! I really like all the Byblis species. I do find the D. venusta to be interesting showing almost no green. I wonder if the pinkish color isn't caused by the visual blending of chlorophyll and anthocyanin so that the green is really there but not visible. Just the same, a cool look!

Thanks! I'm hopeful for these arcturi since I've had pretty good luck with murfetii so far. They're quite slow-growing though so it'll be a couple years before they're much to look at.

Thanks! I didn't realize I hadn't touched this thread for 11 months. It's difficult to keep track.
