Hello, I'm Adam and was wondering how everyones plants where doing. Maybe we could add a picture and tell a bit about the plant.

I will start: 1 or 2 weeks ago I got a healthy venus flytrap from IKEA with 3 divisions. The traps close fast but she is not dormant so I will move her to the garage. She is next to my window at the moment. Here is a picture:

Very sad looking. I know it's normal but it makes me cringe every time I look at them.

Those are phyllodia, noncarnivorous leaves that some species get. A telltale sign of an oreo is curved phyllodia.

Delightful plant events for me this month:

-First germination ever from seed bank donation (Capensis various), gonna name it Kraken.

-N.Diabolica’s first new leaf during winter.

-On my Birthday I received a N.Trusmadiensis as a gift, words cannot describe my joy.

The purps are beautiful. None of them came from the seed bank. The one in the bog I call "Calabash Christmas" because I got it in a Christmas store in Calabash, NC. I just bought a bunch of purps, several from Mike Wang. I was going to wait until spring but with the purp craze I decoded to get them early.

Here's what I have going inside. Some new seeds started, cuttings growing out, seedlings skipping dormancy, neps, and moss among others.

@Pandude, sheesh all your billion and one photos took a good 5 minutes to load. :lol: I have a ton of propagation trays, but they are sitting at the window. Unfortunately, I don't have any Grow lights.
