Lynn, this plant and now the photo also intrigues me when it appears on my cell phone.
Don't have the space nor growing conditions for this plant at my place. Took this picture at a Carnivorous plant nursery in CA where ATP member Otter (John Rizzi) used to work. John is the guy that made your mini pinkish hypertufa container. Here's a butterwort named after him by the nursery:

Oh my, another one. They must take boggy or very moist growing conditions. I didn't realize that they are a carnivorous plant.
That definitely would work out in my raised beds. Sad

How exciting to have a plant named after you. I sure love my little hypertufa container. Right now it, and it's inhabitant, are covered in ice.

I feel a new desire to try a new plant.
Maiden you make it sound so easy to grow these. I am sure it takes some knowledge and adjusting of plant care abilities.

@Maiden, sorry I just noticed I didn't answer your questions. Please forgive me for not knowing ID, parentage, care, etc of any of these carnivorous plants. Photos were taken as I was perusing several aisles in a carnivorous plant nursery ooh-ing and-ah-ing over each plant as they appeared in front of me.

You have to admit, they make great subjects for photos as evidenced by your win! I agree

I just found this thread.

Very cool picture. Interesting to learn about this plant. Sounds way too difficult for my gardening tastes! Definitely sounds better as a picture on phone or wall or card Hilarious!

Thank you for the submission. Not sure I would ever come across something like that otherwise.

I confess I never even looked for them. Well, not beyond the typical Venus Fly Trap Rolling on the floor laughing Loved those as kids.

I do not do well with plants that need special conditions. But visiting that nursery sounds like a blast! I love learning about new stuff even if I don't put it into practice.

Um, sempervivums (my main interest) have even simpler rules...and I don't even get them right all the time... Sad
Thanks for the encouragement. I read your very thorough and interesting article on caring for those plants! Thanks for the link.

@Webesemps, Beautiful photo!

@Maiden, Thanks for the informative links! I didn't expect to be educated on carnivorous plants first thing this morning, lol. I think I found another must-have plant or two.
