Things are growing!

It feels like Spring here in Pinkhouse, even though it will be winter for another week still. Things are budding everywhere, the wood sorrel is blooming like mad along the driveway, and the air is warm and breezy.

It also feels like spring among my carnivores, even though I know that I'm maintaining pretty constant subtropical conditions. I think since the setup is near a window, the plants are sensing a change in sunlight color and responding. Or maybe I'm just projecting. But still, it seems like everything is growing and happy.

Venus flytrap (Dionaea muscipula) with new traps
New spring traps everywhere on the VFT.
New growth on Utricularia livida
First new growth I've seen on the Utricularia livida.

Drosera aliciae with flower scape
This D. aliciae is blooming so daintily.
Drosera capensis typical blooming
D. capensis, on the other hand, is just going for broke.
Drosera capillaris "Alabama" bloom stalks
I have yet to see a Drosera capillaris "Alabama" flower open. They must open early in the morning.
Drosera binata 'Marston Dragon' laminae uncurling
Yeah, the Drosera 'Marston Dragon' isn't really big enough yet. It needs to fill up more space.
Drosera binata 'Marston Dragon' new growth
I love how the laminae are doubly-curled like this. They seem so exciting.

Happy growing everyone! :)
