Little pot of Drosera sessilifolia. A year ago this was a pot of D. binata on the decline. First couple of plants sprung up from stray seed, but their conquest was swift and merciless from there.

The florid crown of Utricularia vulgaris, who by means of creating a negative pressure region within tiny sacks in the water, via active osmosis, sucks in prey in under a 100th of a second.  One of the most successful plants within the carnivorous flora niche.  Quite beautiful flowers for us to look at, but if your a Daphnia (water flea) or Caenorhabditis elegans (nematode) then watch out.

tangelas-boots asked: A neat blog you have... I've seen a few about carnivorous plants before, which is always great since I find them to just be the most peculiar things. In any case, have a nice day! I'll be keeping an eye on your blog.

Thank you. You should buy a couple and be prepared to be totally fascinated.

Mini Bog Garden Complete

Things have developed somewhat on the mini bog and it is now complete.  In the greenhouse! I’ll be putting it outside in the summer on nice days with no wind. Just as a focal on the table out the front. To give the neighbours something to gossip about.  

So, here’s the process.  I bought a large undrained bowl from the discount store.  Put some drainage holes in half way up (at the back of the display) and filled it with 50/50 peat and horticultural sand (yes I finally managed to get some that wasn’t dust in this god forsaken country).  J Arthur Bowers none the less.
