hi
i was inspired by the noid ping to photograph some of mine. some of the shots aren't so great....
this is a flower from a bladderwort... can't find the tag so i'll have to dig to know the name. it's a terrestrial whereas many are aquatic. didn't shoot the plant as the bladders are underground and tiny....


Pinguicula primuliflora plant then flowers....



one of the cutest sundews ever. first the plant and flower, then one for scale. drosera nitidula





next, a bad picture of Drosera multifida, which some think is a mutation of Dros binata... then the flower

I will be dividing a bunch of S. Alata in the spring-I can bare root them and you can have them for postage

a few more. can't entirely see the carnivorous parts of these, but....

the flower of a NOID Genlisea


flowers and plants on a Utricularia livida

the stuff that looks like moss is moss. the stuff that looks like leaves are the Utric

it was hard for me to get a shot of the flowers. they've got depth that i can't seem to capture. the bottom photo has the most accurate flower color

depending on the type of sundew, some just die after they flower. some don't. after i figured that out, i pick the flowers off a certain type and the plants continue to do well. perhaps that's what it is?
they are wicked cool...

I totally agree with Brian - they are very neat plants. My sundew is a much better gnat capturer than my ping, btw. However, I also haven't had the issue after blooming.
A while back someone sent me a link to some great photos but I have no idea wha the link was.
