I couldn't think where to put this, so I set it right here
Well, seeing as the weather hasn't gotten too harsh yet, I still have NOT mulched my outdoor setup, and the way it's lookin I might not have to all "winter"
I went out to look at it yesterday, and was kinda stunned- I have a NICE pitcher forming on my S.leucophylla, it is not getting as much light due to the angle of the sun, but it is slowly and surely growing
My S.purpurea are all growing nicely too...
I would take pics but I can't get my camera out there, but it is kinda freaky, I mean, I think the plants are moving slowly enough that they are "saving up" a bit, but I can't be sure- I imagine they could get such temperatures down where they originate from, but still- I was laughing with my wife about how I might indeed have to rip some stuff out and give it fridge dormancy, and I'm thinking I might do stratification in the fridge too just for good measure...
But anyways, anyone else with things visible outside seeing anything odd?? The only thing that hasn't sprouted are my sundews, thanks goodness, and most of my Sarrs are properly dormant, but the few holdouts are real peculiar like

Hey Guys! Well my bog is pretty small... D.Rotundifolia thats it! But soon there will be, S.Purpurea, S.Psittacina, S.Dana's Delight, D."California Sunset", ect..ect.. So I went and took a look of how it was doing and its still under 3-4 inches of snow... Good enough for now! Cya
Take a Look at my list for trades! I'm looking for Droseras, Pings and Neps! Growlist
Today I noticed that the forsythia is starting!and a couple crocus are flowering in jessicas front yard...crazy quick this year! I'm getting ready to do my waterbottle method for seeds, either on friday or next monday. I'm still going outside. this chilly time is great for stratification, would be nicer if there were more frosts and over night freezes to 0, but this is still good! Thanks, Sib

dvg: These late March snow storms are easier to digest than the mid-May wintry blasts that do so much damage to the trees

insectivore: Agreed! we got a good 10-12 inches but the warm days are taking care of it!!

dvg: That was a decent dump of snow!

dvg: With the days now longer than the nights and the noonday sun rising higher in the sky each day, it won't be long before winter is just an afterthought
