In March, the planter was relocated back to Sydney and lives on a windowsill with strong but dappled north facing window (the bright aspect in the southern hemisphere). Drosera adelae continues to grow strong and has since colonised the full perimeter of the pot with its roots and suckers. The Pinguicula laueana is maintaining its size, which I take to be a good sign although the pullings from the previous season’s dormant leaves seem to have trouble establishing permanently. Utricularia grampiana is growing well perenially and spreading its stolons but I can’t seem to coax it into flowering.
For two months over September and October, I left the planter in the care of my family while I went on my Western Australia road trip. During this time, the planter was not rotated. As a result, I have this cool two-coloured effect in the D. adelae where the plants on the window-facing side attained a reddish tone while the ones on the shaded side remained green. The ping is also entering dormancy again (I’m yet to get a flower on it despite putting it through two growth seasons).
