These trays started off as a place to grow on vfts until they were big enough to pot. But nature had other ideas and decided to turn them into mini wild gardens. Who am I to object, after all they may be messy but the only plants I put in there were vfts the rest just sort of arrived and took over and I kinda like them as they are! What do you think?

A few random snaps around the glass house on a sunny Sunday afternoon

It’s reaching that time of year when pitchers are starting to fade and die, some loose their glow and start to go brown some bend and snap as they have rotted part way down due to all the flies they have caught. Sad. I spent an hour or so on Sunday snipping off the worst affected pitchers and hunting down slugs and snails. Enjoy the photos.

Hooded pitcher on the sarracenia minor with a super pattern

A few shots of my seedlings, they are all strong and healthy and should start to shoot up some nice sized pitcher next year. The cobras are just so funky, even tho they are still tiny!

7AM

I just put together a window sill carnivorous garden using two Venus fly traps, drosera, trigger plants and utric’s

I put in a small square water well so it’s easy to top up the hidden water store and that’s lined with natural stone.

If I was selling these would you buy one and how much would you pay?

6AM
Earlier in the year I sowed some self pollenated cephalotus seeds from my own plant. Nothing happened for months so I moved the tray into a slightly sheltered area and forgot about it until today. As it’s poring down with rain where better to be than in the glasshouse. So while weeding and snipping I had a look in the tray, and wow I find a few little ceph seedlings! I’m so chuffed, ceph seedlings from my own seeds!

A few shots of some of the other plants in the collection, I tend to only show you the sarracenia as they take up the bulk if my growing obsession. I hope you enjoy the photos !

holy shit your flytraps are beautiful. mine grew in all crooked this summer LOLĀ 

Yep, I had the same with a lot of mine, they were infested with green fly, and they suck the goodness out of the leaves so they grow bent and twisted…..
