A Visit to Phil’s

This past weekend I had a chance to hang with one of the great growers that has been such an inspiration to me – the legend: Phil Faulisi. His plants never cease to amaze!  Enjoy a few highlight photos and the slideshow below, or view the slideshow in fullscreen here! (Phil – thanks again for everything!)

A cross I did in 2012, showing off some nifty coloration!

Sarracenia purpurea heterophylla x “Green Monster”

A couple young siblings from this cross I did 2 years ago. You can see one of the seedlings from this cross crack open start to root in the very last photo from this epic-super-neurotic-OCD-how-to-guide-on-starting-Sarracenia-seeds-post.  Interesting to note some of the differences in these babies! One has a high hood with lots of frills, the other is a little more squat and compact with a shorter hood.

Sarracenia leucophylla ‘Bris’

Yeah, yeah, yeah. I know this plant isn’t to everyone’s liking but you know that I like them “freaks of the greenery” …keep it freaky, yo.

Baby Nepenthes!

Here’s a few little baby Nepenthes that I’m watching grow with great anticipation. Some don’t look like much right now, but I hope that in time I can look back at these photos and see just how far they’ve come. It will be a few years before I see anything considerable but it will be a fun journey to watch these babies grow for me. Aren’t they just adorabs?! Like OMG, cute-plant overload!!
