Dreams of a White Christmas


























There's no winter and snow in the tropics, so it's impossible to experience a white christmas. Still, we have a colourful one instead.

Carnivore Update

It's been some time since I bought the sundews. They have grown so much and some are now entering dormancy. Believe me, dormancy in the tropics is HARD because there is no winter. The plants usually start going dormant during the rainy seasons.

A shelf with plants and fertilisers.




















Venus Flytrap




















D. omissa producing lots of plantlets.

























D. binata

























D. tokaiensis

























D. intermedia 'Great Swamp' entering dormancy.

























D. filiformis

























Some pinguicula/butterworts.
















































And lots of nepenthes


























































































































































































And a grasshopper. I really hate these pests because they attack my nepenthes. Once a nepenthes is attacked, it takes a very long time to recover and sometimes will just die.

The Hot, The Loud and The Proud #7

It's time again for the Hot, the Loud and the Proud meme. It's Foliage Frenzy this time with lots of tropical foliage of various species. Besides, I've shown too much flowers and they need a rest haha.
