    Vancouver Island: bog hike June 27 2020

    It was a spectacular day for sure!! My photos aren’t nearly as good (and many are of the same plant so I won’t post those haha) but here are some highlights. These bogs are really a magically place in the fog. “The Carpet” Drosera x obovata, the plants are massive and really show the hybrid...

    Vancouver island: bog hike June 6 2020

    I’m sure we could arrange that, it’s fairly easy to get into the bogs, we are planning to go back every few weeks.

    Drosera binata var.multifida f.extrema

    I find the best one that stays up is multifida, I have a large plant in a 5 gallon pot and It typically flushes out and stays upright, basically has so many leaves that they balance each other.

    Neps in a gh

    Under deciduous trees is a great place to grow Nepenthes in the summer, typically only morning and dappled sunlight and usually much cooler. A lot of orchid growers do the same thing around here, fruit trees are the favourite in our area.

    Neps in a gh

    In your southern Ontario heat and sun you will need some shading for sure, 50-60% would probably be need if they get full sun all day. Some species can handle the bright light and get very rigid and waxy leaves but others (like sanguinea and ventricosa) will cook and sunburn pretty quickly.

    This one is Utricularia macrorhiza! It’s the North American equivalent to U. vulgaris and up until a few years ago used to be considered the same species.

    This is the species at its best, there is just something about a thick patch of flowers that makes you stop.

    ON - Bruce Peninsula National Park of Canada - Northern Bruce Peninsula - Singing Sands

    Great photos of a rare species! Probably the highest concentration in that area but still not easy to find if you don’t know where to look.

    Drosera binata var.multifida f.extrema

    This is a great plant all around! I find that out of the entire complex it is the least likely to go dormant in the winter (in a cold greenhouse). They look awesome in hanging baskets but are hard to keep up on watering in them. This is the new leaf on my plant, by summer is usually has leaves...

    very nice! Used to have a nice pot of corsica until the raccoons decided to wash the pot in the pond. Need to get it back one day.
