“Plants With Bite” 2012, Mount Tomah

Cephalotus follicularis

This year’s Plants With Bite show at Mount Tomah took place, if I remember correctly, in the first two weeks of March.

The lovely four-year-old seed-grown Cephalotus follicularis above was sold within half an hour of being put on display. I should know; I bought it.

There are now three Cephalotus of varying colours in my collection, including a mostly green one. Here’s another photo of the same plant, which is now larger and healthier than it was when I took the picture (in the spring when it hadn’t yet been moved into the new shadehouse).

Nepenthes hamata x platychila

This young plant is a cross between N. hamata and N. platychila. Oh, what lovely tentacles it has, at the top of the pitcher lid. And oh, what a lovely jagged peristome it’s going to have when it grows up.

Sarracenia psittacina

Sarracenia psittacina is unique in its class, with its lobster-pot trap design.

I'm hoping someone can identify this Drosera
