I was going to post this in the Sping is here thread but thought that I would be posting a bunch of stuff throughout the year and a new thread would be better.
I've spent pretty much every spare minute outside repotting for the last week and a half and not that I'm almost done I thought I would post a couple pics. These are from last week and I'll try to get some more recent ones this week.
Some flavas are really starting to push their flowers up!
This oreophila has some decent size to it, I'm hoping it produces some nice traps this year. I divided most of my collection but if I remember correctly I left this one together to see what it does.
Thanks guys, I saw that much of eastern Canada is still getting nailed! I hope it lets up for you guys soon.
Had some time this morning to do some more repotting, pruning and took some pictures.
I held off getting a Darlingtonia while I was in Ontario because, as many of you know, they don't tend to grow very well for very long. So the first thing I did when I got out here was get some Darlingtonia. This was a medium sized plants with a couple runners and two years later it looks like I'll have three flower spikes.
S. flava var. atropurpurea Brunswick Co. North Carolina
S. flava var. rugelii Statesboro Co. Georgia
Another division of the same plant.
S. flava var. flava Horry Co. South Carolina
Pinguicula macroceras just waking up.
Drosera intermedia Antho-Free also just waking up.
S. oreophila var. oreophila Cherokee Co. Alabama a couple different divisions
The Disa are back outside full time loving all the air movement and light.
Great pics! Thanks for dropping that hint re: Darlingtonia not growing well here - I'm developing an unhealthy interest in these. Yet another reason to move to BC - skiing, mountains, sea, great environment for growing CPs and orchids...
Canuk, BC is a great place to grow plant outdoors because of out climate. Growing Darlingtonia is Ontario is possible, it just takes a lot more dedication.
Doug, I must say that you flowering your Darlingtonia is much more impressive then me flowering mine. All I do it put water in the tray forget about them. I'm trying some new stuff this year that I'll have I post.

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!

chrisrichard: SCAM ALERT--Don't buy from Pearl River Exotics in Georgia. What they advertise on their website IS NOT WHAT U GET!!! I've learned from my horrible experience+am sharing with everyone, so you don't get ensnared in the same trap of false advertising by them.
