Lloyd, Feel free anytime. Lots of space for the Neps
Thanks Ian and Devon! I wish I could spend hours out there, if I'm lucky I get a couple minutes a day and a hour or so a week to water and weed. I work two full time jobs so its hard to squeeze in plant time some days.
Here are some pictures from yesterday and today. More background on this plant for another day. For now I just call it Fake Oreo.
Mike King S. flava var. rugelii
Some of the collection
S. x moorei 'Marston Clone'
S. 'Copper Vase'
Pinguicula grandiflora spp. grandiflora, these were all 1-2mm gemmae off of 3 plants.
Drosera filiformis 'Carolina Clone'
Drosera x beleziana
Drosera intermedia alba
S. leucophylla var. leucophylla
Pinguicula grandiflora spp. grandiflora, should get some seeds this year!
S. oreophila var. oreophila
S. oreophila var. oreophila
S. flava var. maxima
More S. oreophila var. oreophila, off these ones posted are different locations.
S. flava var. atropurpurea., this is the pink blushed flower form from Bay Co. Florida
S. purpurea ssp. venosa, one of the coolest forms from Tattnall Co.
After an extremely long and cold winter for these guys the Cephs are waking up and some are flowering.
I feel envious, over here in the UK, outdoors in my bogs I have my first pitcher just popped open yesterday (oreophila), and although I have flowers a plenty not one is open yet. I must be at least three weeks behind you.
Canuk, Hydroponic stores are the best place to find them but as you probably know they aren't cheap. I've never paid full price for mine though, I just check out usedvictoria (similar to kijiji) and I find them on there for cheap. Picked up 7 4'x4' trays last year for 150 bucks, I use 2'x4' and 4'x4' mostly but I do have a single 8'x4' tray, I find the big ones are hard to manage on my small yard.
Devon, I thought you might like the dews, thats why I posted those ones. They didn't look amazing when I took the pictures though. Growing outside means you gets ready dewy days and some days with no dew. I have extras of all the dews I have. Let me know which ones you're looking for
You are good at what you do. Nice plants man! What a collection. That Drosera filiformis is really nice. Also, somehow stumbled upon your butterfly wing pendants on Etsy. I didn't realize you made them! My girlfriend and I were admiring them while we were at the gardens.

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!
