A couple of my CPs I have yet to kill off

Wilmington, DE(Zone 7a)

LOL These guys are tough as nails, surviving my ineptitude (is that a word?)...I like them very much, and the pings seem to be especially attractive to the whitefly population I had in my sunroom.

Here is Pinguicula lutea in a fern forest.

Here is Pinguicula laueana and also Drosera slackii over to the left, the latter not doing so well.

Lastly, Sarracenia flava I have grown out from seeds I bought on ebay (miracle of miracles they germinated!), and Drosera capensis, nice and dewy.

I transferred my Sarracenia flava seedlings outside into my container bog. So far they seem happy with the larger plant that Equilibrium gave to me (thank you again!!).

Ferns and Pinguicula. Neat combo. I never thought of trying that before. Fun

You did a nice job on your seedlings. They look very healthy and strong. Good for you.

I really like your watering pipe. I use white pvc but the black you chose looks better and doesn't detract from the plants.

Looks as if your laueana and slackii have some competition. What's growing in the pot with them?

D. slackii is now boots up...P. laueana is a solitary plant in the container. It flowered a very nice reddish flower but was not able to get a good picture of it, alas. Thanks for your kind words, E, much appreciated!

Say Joseph, you might want to repot the P. laueana into fresh medium. Use the same pot but ditch the medium. Also too, dip that pot in a mild bleach solution of some sort before you add new medium and replant it. Other than that, your plants look remarkably good. Those seedlings are quite impressive for first year growth. Way to go!

Here's a pic of my last Drosera capensis, just about to set a flower. How cool is that?

Aren't the flowers dainty? How many have flowered for you so far?

E, I am having a senior moment, will have to figure out which ones have flowered and have since croaked...I know the D. madagascarensis flowered up for me. This will be the first D. capensis flowers for me.
