There's a lovely surprise in the collection right now.
It's Drosera tomentosa! This is an adorable little sundew from South America with fuzzy little flower stalk. The cuteness of this flower stalk was so overwhelming that it spurred me to make a post. So uh, here are some other plants around the collection.
Of course, most of the plants I deal with now are in the greenhouses at work. They're also cool!
And just think, this whole blog post was because of that one little sundew.
|Between the fuzzy stalk and the chubby leaves it's much too cute.|
|Drosera barbigera looks the best of any of the pygmies right now.|
|Drosera zigzagia came back even though I didn't give it a proper dry dormancy.|
|This one is actually Byblis liniflora, for sure.|
|Pinguicula esseriana is cute, but really slow-growing.|
|I love the faint venation on this Pinguicula hemiepiphytica.|
|Finally got some new flowers on my Utricularia sandersonii blue form.|
|Our Utricularia nelumbifolia has bloomed! Funny eyeball flowers.|
|Nepenthes sumatrana is very cute. Love that stripey peristome.|
|This Nepenthes (ventricosa × sibuyanensis) × merrilliana has hilarious proportions.|
|A wonderful pitcher on Nepenthes ×tiveyi "Red Queen". This is probably the best N. ×tiveyi.|
|This is our select clone of Nepenthes spathulata × jacquelineae. You can probably see why.|
