Looking absolutely fantastic dj57 - we are having an epic summer aren't we? I love the way the Drosera have naturalized into a red carpet in spots, and that red-hooded catesbaei thing from Jerry...damn! Put me down for a piece of that bad boy. Here are a few shots taken over the last couple weeks. Have been in the mid-summer pitcher lull without a ton of new stuff opening, but now that we are getting into August a lot of things are becoming active again. Mostly collection overview shots: IMG_1560 by Calen Hall, on Flickr IMG_1561 by Calen Hall, on Flickr IMG_1493 by Calen Hall, on Flickr Every single spring trap on HCW F was blinding solid white this year. Having them open so late in the year (these opened in June!) means the sun is very, very strong and really brings out the whites. Downside is I don't know if there will be time for them to fall pitcher before it gets cold! IMG_1563 by Calen Hall, on Flickr IMG_1546 by Calen Hall, on Flickr Black Widow looking dark!

Thank you Calen! Yes, once things finally got going everything took off and grew quickly. I also love my "weedy" dew carpet in the bog. Haha, I just went out and put your name on a tag for a division and stuck it down beside that complex hybrid from Jerry. I love this one and may divide it up next year, been waiting for it to get to a decent sized clump and this year it is going crazy with growth.
Damn Calen, need sunglasses to view that HCW F! Your beds are looking fantastic, can't wait to see the fall show and I am optimistic we are going to get a decent one. I am wondering what affect the 100+ temps most of this week is going to have on things though.
Very nice calen, these HCW leucos are stunning... dj57, plants in the bog look really healthy ! Colors are beatuful ! Mine are loosing color and shape : too hot (?) and too much insects in pitchers, they are becomig brown and dry...but I think it's normal
DirtyDivisions: summit I’ve been fine at a constant 95° F under the dome. Once the tiny seedlings have two pitchers I remove the dome and temps go down.

summit: @dirtydivisions Thanks for that! I'm sitting around 87-88F with the dome fully sealed but I wasn't doing that and sacrificing humidity to keep it cooler but I'll go ahead and close it down now!

mikee: Thanks you chofah, there is a great video from The Pitcher Project with Phil Faulisi this was what I was looking for. However it still appears to be wait and see what results come from the cross. Many thanks

Willy: It would be rather silly to expect totally predictable results from a cross. The individual plants grown from the seeds will vary, sometimes quite a bit, even with carefully protected hand pollination. If you open polinate, the variety may be even greater.

superstressed: Recently purchased a s. purpurea from Mike and I am so impressed with the quality of the plant that arrived. My Purpurea is now one of the larger plants in my collection! Mike also included an beautiful Flava var. for free. I will absolutely buy again.
