Back Home

Home sweet home! I recently returned from a family vacation up in the beautiful Pacific Northwest. It’s nice to be back, but I really do miss it up there. I got the chance to visit Karen Oudean and Jerry Addington and meet up with a couple other talented growers. (Kinjie and Phaedra – great to meet you! Brie – I’m sorry we missed you!) And yes, I’ll be featuring photos from that visit in an upcoming post, so stay tuned!

For now, here’s a few snapshots from within The Asylum. Great to be home.

I returned home packing my suitcase with a few plants from Jerry. (Thanks again, Jerry!) The plants have made the trip back safe and sound and have been potted up. Here’s a couple of the plants that made it back with me.

Sarracenia “06-02″  – sibling to Sarracenia “Jerry’s Goliath”
Parentage is uncertain, however Jerry suspects that S. ‘Doreen’s Colossus’ is involved somehow with Sarracenia “06-02″ and Sarracenia “Jerry’s Goliath.”

Nepenthes Update

It’s been some time since I’ve moved the Nepenthes into a brighter area and so far they are reacting pretty well. Some of the older foliage is burning out (to be expected),  but the new growth is coming in quite nicely and I can see the difference in the pitchers. I’m pretty excited to see them react positively to their brighter environment.

A Few Nepenthes

Here’s a few Nepenthes photos! They’re lovin’ their dome and I’m seeing quite a bit of new pitchers forming. It’s all so exciting for me and I can see why these plants are so addicting!

Nepenthes thorelii x aristolochioides: Now Open

Nepenthes thorelii x aristocholoides

NOW OPEN! AWWW YEAHHH! I received a rooted cutting of this brilliant Nepenthes thorelii x aristolochioides earlier in September from Nepenthes master, Paul Barden. Check out his posts here and here on this truly remarkable plant. I’m glad that it’s doing well and happy to report that one month later, I finally got one pitcher open with a few more on the way! So excited! :)
