rco911 This was one wonderful whirlwind of a weekend. Quite eventful... Impromptu travel plans, a plane wing valve malfunction thing, being stranded and sleepless in Seattle... and then finally to sweet sweet Portland. It was all worth it.

It was so great to see you @ocpaddict @torchitupagain @powazek @haitchchamp ! THANK YOU all so much for your kindness and hospitality. I'll see you all again soon!

  •   pdw4 My pleasure! I love your gallery!! I wish I could send you one as a companion plant, however I only have access to it as I work for the rare plant program and it is almost going extinct so it's a plant we work with cheers! 1w
  •   rco911 @pdw4 fascinating!! Speaking of Hawaiian plants... I'm also growing a Brighamia insignis - had it for a few years now. I just transplanted to a larger pot but will post photos once it's a bit more decent looking :) anyway, keep up the brilliant work!! Looking forward to seeing the updates on your marvelous feed! 1w

rco911 So... this recently happened in the mini greenhouse. The nest and egg are tucked away in between the Nepenthes pots. Mama bird was there of course, but she flew out into the main greenhouse as I watered the plants and she kept her eye on me. She came back to her nest after I was finished watering. #GreenhouseLife 2w

rco911 #Sarracenia (leucophylla "Purple Lips" x flava var. ornata) x 'Adrian Slack' - from a cross I did a few years ago. Lots of great individuals from this seed batch. This particular one is putting up some pleasant spring pitchers. 4w
  •   thombrogar Killer!! 4w
  •   rco911 @carnibitch thanks so much! It's a great clone :) 4w
  •   rco911 @inesdutra2808 🏽 4w
  •   rco911 @thombrogar thanks Brooks!! :) it's still not of blooming maturity and it can only get better as it fully matures! 4w
  •   rco911 @youknowsbenny nice!! Will you be doing any crosses with it? It is a great plant to breed with for sure! 4w
  •   youknowsbenny Probably put some leuco or leuco influence back in to it. I've got an insane umlauftiana that's blooming. Not a cross that's common I guess 4w
  •   rco911 Nice!! I think Paul Barden (nitrogenseekers blog) did the umlauftiana x slack cross last year -- that should be a very interesting and colorful cross! Keep us posted on how yours turn out! 4w

rco911 One chaotic and menacing plant. #Sarracenia "Chaos" - a select hybrid by Dr. Travis H. Wyman (@actcattgg ) - parentage is S. 'Reptilian Rose' x (flava var. rubricorpora x leucophylla) # 15. #BotanicalBadass 1mon
  •   sarr_morpheus74 That is such a perfect name!! 1mon
  •   actcattgg Excellent job growing this beast out @rco911 I am still blown away by this brute. It is like 'Reptile' but on steroids! And it has the rose smell to it as well. Simply an awesome plant. 1mon
  •   7rider Is there a term for when the pitcher cup is shaped in that way? 1mon
  •   sarraceniacrazy @7rider deformed according to some:p. 1mon
  •   rco911 @7rider not sure if there's an "official" term. @actcattgg may know? @sarraceniacrazy hah!! Right? I know it's not everyone's cup of tea but you know me - I love them freaks bro!! Love the angularity on these hybrids! 1mon
  •   sarraceniacrazy @rco911 Me too dude! 1mon
  •   yarnspinnerdianna Nice 1mon
  •   actcattgg @rco911 @7rider I do not believe there is an official term other that "Freakin' Awesome!!" 1mon

  •   rco911 @youngturk321 so hawt! 1mon
  •   rco911 @sarr_morpheus74 I love that about them!! 1mon
  •   rco911 @capt_mo thank you Morgan! They really are! (I put coffee grounds from you-know-where in the water last year ) hope you are well!! 1mon
  •   sarr_morpheus74 They're all beautiful but I'd have to say that the red is my favorite. It's just incredible! 1mon
  •   nonotouchie @rco911 sarras like coffee too? I know neps do. 1mon
  •   rco911 @nonotouchie hi!!! I don't really know - I threw a lot of coffee grounds in their water tables last fall - no negative effects :) there was an article I read on Cycads and how coffee helps eradicate mealy bugs. Tried it out with these guys. :) I didn't see any definitive effects on the mealy but there were no negative effects on the plants. Maybe I didn't use enough.... 🏼( oh and I didn't notice mosquito larvae either post coffee ground treatment ) 1mon
  •   nonotouchie @rco911 i currently have an experiment going on testing coffee grounds. Glad there were no negative effects on the sarras!!! 1mon
  •   nonotouchie Also did the sarras show any visible positive effects? Or no response at all? 1mon

rco911 Go home #VenusFlyTrap, you are drunk. A very interesting pom-pom trap mutation on my #Dionaea 'Justina Davis.' My plants do this every spring but they revert to normal traps later. This is a tissue culture clone by David Conner from plant material obtained directly from Barry Rice / UC Davis Botanical Conservatory. (...Something funky must of happened in tissue culture. Yeah.) 2mon
  •   nonotouchie Love things deemed "weird" or different by others!!! I have a goal of learning as much as i can and gathering a collection and possibly starting a cp nursery here in Utah! 1mon
  •   rco911 @nonotouchie yes!!! That is an awesome plan! You have good taste! 🏼 1mon
  •   nonotouchie Thanks! As far as i know there are no actual cp nurseries here - every once in a while you can find them in the hardware stores or gift shop... but in such sad, heartbreaking shape! 1mon
  •   thegoodphyte Fascinating 😯 1mon
  •   tyc333 I love this pom pom mutation!! So cool looking! 4w
  •   illenittep1 Any idea of how I might go about aquiring one if it happened to financially strike my fancy? 2w
  •   rco911 @illenittep1 I have a few small extras :) feel free to dm me or drop a line thru the contact section in my blog (link in profile) - the thing is this mutation is not stable - it's happens on the spring traps but it reverts to normal traps later. 2w
  •   illenittep1 Sweet. 2w
