By now, all of my carnivorous plants that grow only during the warmer months have emerged from dormancy. The tuberous Drosera have retreated to their subterranean lairs.
This June, my family visited Atlanta Botanical Gardens. This post is Part 1 and will cover Sarracenia, Drosera, Dionaea, and Pinguicula. Basically, the outdoor CP collection at Atlanta Botanical Gardens.
A variety of carnivorous plants stretch and send out their flowers with the arrival of spring...
My primuliflora has been growing well for me so far...it is developing another flower and is producing several plantlets at the tips of its leaves. It's interesting how primuliflora just naturally produces plantlets so readily.
Just a few weeks after receiving it, my primuliflora has flowered! I don't think it's supposed to bloom in October though...it might be mistakenly thinking that spring is here...like a lot of my S. flava (flava has been sending up really short flowers). Donald Schnell's Carnivorous Plants of the United States and Canada says P. primuliflora's flowering season is from February to April.
I recently added two Pinguicula to my collection (about two weeks ago). These are the first of this genus that I have ever seen in person. I am excited to see them grow and hopefully flower!
I got Pinguicula primuliflora and Pinguicula x 'Sethos' from California Carnivores.
The primuliflora joins my outdoor collection, while sethos becomes my one carnivorous plant that will stay indoors year round.
