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:
from the left: Heliamphora sarraceinioides, sp. "akopan", purpurascens, collina, and heterodoxa
Heliamphora sp "akopan"
Heliamphora minor x heterodoxa
that's all for now. please share your own!
Oh man. I was waiting for this thread. I can't load up any pics now but I will later!
Btw, all your links are broken.
fixed them! sorry about that. hahahaha
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.
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'
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.
from the newest leaves, it looks like your plant is adjusting well. keep us updated!
These are from the ICP show in Mass. this last year.
There's a show in Mass and I missed it?!?!?!?!?! What!
My turn. Here's some of my Sarracenia from earlier in the growing season. All grown outdoors.
S. x mooreana
Sarracenia "Copper Vase"
S. "Daina's Delight"
S. flava var. maxima
S. x [(Rubra x Oreophila) x (Oreophila x Flava)]
S. 'Dixie Lace'
S. x mooreana - Autumn pitchers
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. x "Daina's Delight" & Flava var. Maxima
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!
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.
sweet Sarrs Monster Fish! Im really digging that Alata 'Night'! hope it grows even darker for you next season!
