After a brief hiatus, I have started taking pictures of my plants again.

I am getting some nice highland Nepenthes in the next week and participating in an order from BCP. My terrarium will definitely be getting a trial by fire when it comes to growing highlanders. I did get fans installed so it is way cooler now.

Not a carnivore but, I got some tubers for Sauromatum venosum. A plant with some rather suggestive looking blooms. It is sending up flowers and will post photos in another thread:

D. burmanii "Beerwah" flower:
Image

P. cyclosecta;
Image

D. burmanii "typical":
Image

My D. aliciae died back in November and now it is finally returning:
Image

Same goes for madagascariensis:
Image

P. rotundiflora x moctezumae
Image

D. filliformis "florida red":
Image

Thanks for looking!

D. multifida extrema:

D. whatever:

Image

U. whatever, anyone know what this is?:

Image

D. madagascarensis:

Image

Venus flytrap seedling showing genetic variation:

D. capensis typical emerging from temporary death/slumber:

D. spatulata "gold coast, queensland"

I had a moment the other night, took this at an extremely high iso and a very high shutter speed. N. veitchii:

Thanks!

The trays are a thick tarp, in a square container (which was not waterproof.) There was condesation developing between the tarp and the container, which was leaking down onto my nice hardwood floors!

I had to make my trays myself, because I could not find any to fit my shelf.

The Utric is bisquamata, BTW.
