A great day to take photos in MO!

by kcbugs » Fri Jul 11, 2014 2:16 am

Was enjoying near perfect weather today and decided to take a boatload of photos! I am loving this hobby... I mean ehem, lifestyle.

Maroon Monsters are doing GREAT! These guys are incredibly vigorous, and very hungry!:
Image

LUNCH!:
Image

My DCXL #1 is growing very low for some reason, but thick growth it is:
Image

Jaws is incredible. So dense. Nothing can stop it!:
Image

Tiny King Henry has quite the appetite:
Image

Tall Seed Grown to the right of Jaws:
Image

Dutch Delight and a pot full of B52's:
Image

A few decent typs from a local nursery:
Image

Mr. Vigorous. Just had this guy for a couple weeks. He's coloring up awesome!:
Image

Mr. Vigorous along with some Lowes Deathcube rescues. I'm loving the very subtle peach tone of the traps of these guys:
Image

My favorite bucket of Seed Grown VFT's:
Image

SD Draco. I am liking the long straight petioles. Very tall and large traps:
Image

The Gruesome Threesome. Grun, Jaws and G14:
Image

The ever gluttonous King Henry. Very vigorous growing:
Image

DCXL #2. some traps grow low, some grow up (a few B52's in with him):
Image

Just for fun, Mr. Sensitive. Now you see me:
Image

Now you don't:
Image

Some Lowes rescues. Purps and rubras(?) along with my new D. intermedia x filiformis from SNW:
Image

A few bugs are sticking around for dinner!:
Image

A mature Grun from Matt!!! This is one of my favorites. I love the bright green!!:
Image

A N. ventrata from a local nursery. My first Nep:
Image

Which led to my second Nep. Another ventrata:
Image

Which led to my third Nep. A Miranda(?):
Image

You get the picture. Another ventrata:
Image

And so on... N. sanguinea:
Image

A not so well ventricosa. He showed up without roots. I'm hoping he'll pull thru:
Image

New Heli's from Matt:
Image

The growing chamber (sounds better than "terrarium" to me):
Image

The Big Pot O' Death:
Image

Big Mouth, G17 and BZ1955:
Image

The lovely Daina's Delight:
Image

Some Fine Tooth x Red's:
Image

Some very nice Typicals:
Image

My 2 Ceph's:
Image
Image
Image

Spatulata is my favorite Drosera:
Image

Which led to my seventh Nep... N. x Red Leopard:
Image
Image

Soon to be full of seeds!:
Image

My wife was complaining that I may have a problem. I reminded her that there are worse problems, listed a few... she agreed that this wasn't that big of a problem.

What a great looking collection of carnivorous plants, kcbugs! They all look well cared for and like they're growing well for you :)

And yes, you've certainly come a long way in a very short amount of time. Good growing!!!

Nice pics! N. Ventrata grows like a weed for me. I have started 6 plants off my mother plant that I got about 5 years ago.

Tell me about it. I could get a couple of cuttings off of NV #2. It's also growing a basal shoot. They weren't quite as big when I got them, and they were planted in 100% very densely packed, bone dry peat. I switched them out to 50/50 sphagnum/perlite and they really took off. Do you keep yours indoors or out. I'm guessing I'll have some shock when it comes time to bring them indoors in the fall. Some of the easiest plants I've ever had though!

I keep them indoors in west facing windows. I spray them every 2 weeks during the summer with 1/4 strength orchid food to induce pitchering. I was growing them in 50/50 Peat moss and Perlite but recently repotted adding a handful of orchid bark to the mix and they seem to like it. Very easy plants!
