Under A Colorful Sky

Greenhouse SunsetThe asylum, the sanctuary – under a brilliant colorful sky last evening.


If you haven’t already done so, check out the October issue of Sunset Magazine! (Go and buy it now!) I’m so grateful and humbled to be featured in the October issue of Sunset. I’m truly honored to know wonderful folks like Johanna Silver and Lauren Dunec, You’re both freakin’ amazing. A huge thank you to my wife, Dahlia for her continued love, support, and patience with this crazy plant dude! Last, but not least – I just wanted to thank all of YOU who follow/read my blog. You’ve been there – growing along with me through the lows and the highs. You’ve shared your stories and even your plants with me. You’ve inspired me to keep doing what I do, and to continue to share this botanical madness with you. Thank you all so much. Let’s grow.

Nepenthes, Illuminated

Just wanted to share a few assorted Nepenthes photos from the end of a bright winter’s work day. The setting sun was coming in at an angle that added a nice subtle glow to the deadly foliage.

A new baby pitcher on a very young plant, but it’s doing well.
So cute. But wait until it gets older, it gets soooo much cuter!
(Thanks Drew!)

The setting sun gives this carnivore a gentle glow in the late November afternoon.
