About a week ago, I casually mentioned to my wife that I was thinning my sundew herd down and was going to focus more on Flytraps and Sarrs.
What does she do? She feeds my addiction by getting me two of these. Apparently she listened to me over the years talking about VFT's, because they're both labeled as B-52's. Whether that's accurate or not remains to be seen, but I don't care.
She not only took the time to find these, but to make sure, as best she could, that they were a nice cultivar.
We've only been married almost 26 years, but I think I'll keep her.

My wife and I have been married 30 years. I was scrolling through some CP posts one night and she looks over at a picture of Pinguicula and says, "That's pretty. You don't have any of those." Challenge accepted! I also told her about S. purpurea 'Brunswick Beauty' that is from Brunswick County, NC. She has family in that area and said, "You definitely need to add that to your collection." Yep, she's a keeper!

I watched the video put out by the supplier and I'm pretty confident I can do it.
I'll let you know.

If I get half that, I guess I'll be giving some away. Good thing that #1, I bought a lot of good NZLFSM from Matt. And #2, I got about 20 seven inch deep pots from Lowes for free.
When the Lowes by my house dumps their dead house plants, they dump the contents in the trash, but put the plastic pot on a rack to be recycled. Many times they let this rack overflow with pots, trays, and other plastic before they empty it.
Take 'em home, wash 'em out, fill 'em with moss, and plant a little plant.
Oh, and last time, they were purple!
