Unfortunately, my delayed absence means my VFTs are going to have a bit slower move into dormancy as well - though they seem to be growing lower to the ground now, especially comparing to the old pics - but again, that might have been the drought they experience a couple weeks back. My plan is to move them out of this tank, and into my old small terr , and put them on a reducing photoperiod- and then put the whole tank in the garage or basement.
Also, I took these pics after I cleaned up the dead stuff!
First heli pitcher to grow under my (lack of) care! Glad to see its happy looking, and got the nice red colouration!
D.burmanii Red Giant in front, and possibly my current favourite drosera - D. paradoxa in the back.
VFT 'typical' patch, growing down low - possibly due to the low turgor pressure it experienced. Split off 2 small divisions since I last saw it.
VFT 'akai ryu' - Had to cut off a lot of black traps from this poor guy, looking a little bit bare now.
Crazy P.weser! I think it panicked and went into make babies mode!
P. pirouette in front, and P. laueana in the back
Sad looking N.ventrata, the pic actually hides a lot of the damage evident on the leaf and the sag in the pitchers.
I want to say its a D. coccicalis or something like that...I'd have to check my map to confirm!
And I want to say this very dewy guy is D. sp. 'cuba'
D. adelae exploded with growth! So many leaves!
Baby nep in the back, I think one of my seedlings are underneath the D. adelae leaf as well.
Air plant making a baby!
VFT 'Big Mouth'
Small P. pirouette next to VFT 'akai ryu'
Just to show what goes on when I clean out the tank, this haul was a bit more than usual though...
VFTs - cross teeth, pink venus, and red pirahna
VFT dente - Hopefully these start going to sleep soon- all been on the window sill
P. weser and P. lauaena pullings !
In vivo - Nep seedlings
Various VFT pullings, red pirahna, cross teeth, and big mouth I believe.
New batch of recruits more than eager to take the spots of their fallen comrades in the terrarium! Cannot remember what these are, again will have to check my notes.
Hope you enjoyed!
