U. sandersonii, which I get to bloom first time in my whole hobby!
U. dichotoma, first time blooming in my collection.Notice powdery mildew which attacked the flowerstalk.
U. uniflora took it's time to bloom but glad it did. Seems like this one likes the summery heat.
Then to my wannabe highland terrarium, which is for now a plastic box on my floor. The upper row D. venusta, G. roraimensis, U. asplundii and U. reniformis small form. Middle earth, I mean row D. natalensis with location data, D. roraimensis, D. regia. The sugar on the bottom is D. felix, U, nephrophylla and dead D. graomogolensis. D. graomogolensis was a bit ex tempore but I agreed to swap it for few sundews but unluckily the plant arrived when I was on my holiday and my parents potted it.
Rule number X: Never let your parents pot your carnivorous plants, unless they're carnivorous plants hobbyists too. Mine aren't.
U. asplundii are growing bigger leaves than before. I'll pot them in spahnum soon and hopefully it will improve their growing.
D. natalensis from Inanda road, Waterfall, Kwa-Zulu, Natal, RSA and D. kaiteurensis. Oops! File name of the picture says D. roraimensis. Maybe I'm getting old or I just have too many plants. :D
I was shocked when I came home and saw my Darlingtonia with only few leaves. The biggest leaves had dried away and below is a picture that might reveal the reason why it all happened.
The base of the plant has turned purple coloured, which I think might be a symptom of fungal infection. Well at least I treated My Darling with some fungicide. But if you recognize this symptom and it is about something else than fungal infection, please comment or e-mail.
Well here are the pictures for now. During the next week I'll post more Take care of yourself and your plants, beware closed greenhouses. Happy growing!
