|Bev this photo really intrigued me. What an interesting plant. How long have you had this plant?|

|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.
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 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
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 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.

I admit lol exept for heliamphora, most carnivorous plants are easy to grow if you follow a couple rules :)
Nov 19, 2014 4:10 PM CST
|Um, sempervivums (my main interest) have even simpler rules...and I don't even get them right all the time... |
Thanks for the encouragement. I read your very thorough and interesting article on caring for those plants! Thanks for the link.

|I missed the link! Where is it?|

|@Maiden Could you help with providing the link that had the care of carnivorous plants article again? I couldn't find it.|
Nov 20, 2014 12:51 PM CST
|Sure ! |
Thanks for reading it by the way ! :)

|@Maiden thank you!|

|@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.
It's all about recycling the WEEDS of our daily life!
