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.
The Asylum. The Sanctuary.

Oh Hai! Even the Nepenthes are looking happy to see me back home!
Nepenthes izumiae x ramispina – new pitcher forming

Nepenthes ventricosa x talangensis
Nepenthes ventricosa x tiveyi
Nepenthes thorelii x aristolochioides
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 oreophila hybrid
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.”
