Ooh pretty 😍 Is it a cultivar or seed grown?
Thanks! It is a cultivar - I am fairly sure he said it was Scarlatine

In the spirit of thanksgiving, would be happy to send you a division if I ever get it to divide 😜

Here are my Drosera finlaysoniana grown from seedbank seeds. They just started flowering last week at 22 cm / 8.5 inches high. Zoom in and see how many different insects these guys are catching. I don't know how they get so many at this time when we have low numbers of insects around. My other Drosera are not getting much to eat, perhaps they need to take lessons from finlaysoniana!

Thanksgiving yes! I am very grateful to this forum for sharing CP knowledge and seeds!

Back in March, chefdean had a giveaway for a binata var Multifida root. I won the stick and planted it. A few months later that little sucker had taken off. I am thankful for ppl like chefdean and others who do these giveaways. It affords some of us a chance to experiment with new plants.

Very thankful!

Very nice, but you need to limit yourself to one picture for the contest.

Thank you! I’ve bought way more flytrap cultivars than I should have this year, but I still don’t have Scarlatine. Fingers crossed for some divisions. I’d enter it in next year’s photo contest 😊

I got my start on this forum almost 8 years ago. I am thankful for the many experienced growers that took their time to help me over the years. I could name so many that I still am friends with today. But one friend in particular has always been so generous to me. I recently received this gift of a C. Bubble Giant. :D

I was never interested in Pings until I won one in a giveaway. “The first hit is free,” as they say.

P Esseriana and P. Ehlersiae from @Apollyon and @Supercazzola’s Space Coast giveaway, P. Cyclosecta from a @Hollyhock giveaway.

Well, I only collect flytraps (so far, lol) and this hitchhiker sticky weed grew out of one of my flytrap pots - it's kind of pretty, I guess - so I'm thankful to have it because I never would have actually paid money for one of these. :lol:
