Carnivorous plant thread! Post your pics here!
 
Why should all the orchidophiles have all the fun? ;)
Who cares about pretty flowers that open once or twice a year when you've got plants that eat bugs all the time? :biggrin:

I'll start off with some from my own collection:

Your collection is amazing! Have always wanted to collect carnivorous plants but hubby says I can only pick between plants or fish :(

But! I do have a regular ole fly trap. It's currently hibernating in my fridge so here is a summer picture.

amphirion 12-06-2012 11:28 PM

looks like a great specimen! mine is enjoying nappy time as well. for the next growing season, i recommend you place it in more sun. VFTs cant get too much sun. :)

My 1st & only so far, Nepenthes 'sanguines black'

http://i541.photobucket.com/albums/g...o/SAM_3674.jpg

I was having good growth in my Aquaponic growbed but, I wasn't having pitchers develop. I potted it up today and put it in my 5gl emersed tank. I hope the higher humidity will help.

amphirion 12-07-2012 01:17 AM

from the newest leaves, it looks like your plant is adjusting well. keep us updated!

There's a show in Mass and I missed it?!?!?!?!?! What!

Monster Fish 12-07-2012 02:29 AM

My turn. Here's some of my Sarracenia from earlier in the growing season. All grown outdoors.

S. x mooreana

Sarracenia "Copper Vase"
http://i202.photobucket.com/albums/a...826_140020.jpg


S. "Daina's Delight"
http://i202.photobucket.com/albums/a...908_121945.jpg


S. flava var. maxima
http://i202.photobucket.com/albums/a...908_115244.jpg


S. x [(Rubra x Oreophila) x (Oreophila x Flava)]

Group Shot

S. alata v. nigropurpurea 'Night' F2 - I got this plant before Hurricane Sandy hit and I was brave (stupid) enough to pot it during the hurricane.

S. leucophylla

S. x "Daina's Delight" & Flava var. Maxima
http://i.imgur.com/K3sml.jpg?1


S. x "Extreme Green" - This one is an Oreophila x Flava maxima hybrid but unlike my other Oreo x Flava cross, this plant was shooting up most of it's first pitchers late summer/early fall.

Anyways, I use tap water for my plants since the TDS never gets above 50 ppm.

Beautiful specimens fellas! I think I've found a new obsession!

Elppan 12-07-2012 11:44 AM

Oh guys! Your plants are all gorgeous! I miss carnivorous plants, the house where I spent the first 23 years of my life had wild pitcher plants in the yard, I use to feed them Mwhahaha. I also fed the antlions lol. Are there any good sources online to buy some? I've never found any for sale in the las Vegas valley.

I'm starting to feel the same way. I started rehabbing Mark-Down table Orchids I find at Home Depot last summer. I'm slowly replacing house plants with them. I can see how some of these Carnivores would fit in well. I just need to identify the ones that will do well indoors over winter with the light I can offer and the low humidity.

Check out California Carnivores, Sarracenia Northwest, and Cooks Carnivorous plants. If you know what you're looking for, eBay is also a good place to get some.
