I've done some rearranging in my terrarium, and simplified things a bit. Everything is still settling in but I will update when it's looking OK. I've separated the basal growth on my Nepenthes argentii into three separate plants, two of which don't have roots, so I'm hoping that they will root and continue growing.
My Dracula lotax is blooming for the first time, so I'm hoping to see a flower or two soon! I will update if/when it happens.
As I mentioned in my last post, I divided my Nepenthes argentii. There were two rootless basal shoots growing off of the mother plant, so I cut them off and crossed my fingers. It seems as though all three plants have resumed growing, which I am happy about.
My Pinguicula's have responded well to powdered freeze-dried bloodworms.
Utricularia sandersonii through a shoddy/dusty lens:
Dracula lotax flowering for the first time. Two more spikes on the way:
Last but not least, Cephalotus follicularis finally making some progress. I believe that I was keeping it too dry before. It also has a lot of room for roots, so I hope that it's established itself well, as it's taken its sweet time...
Devon- I'm not using film, instead I'm just posing with my iPhone.
roraima- My N. argentii is Borneo Exotics clone-3021. I really like this plant. Unfortunately, as soon as it was established in my terrarium and putting out some nice growth, I set it back. I think it'll be worth it in the long run.

bonfield: I've decided to finally reveal my best-kept secret for growing healthy Neps: Just spit on them every few days, the enzymes in saliva help them to better absorb the fertilizer I spray them with!
