A vigorous Sarrencenia hybrid, purchased at a flower shop in Telegraph Avenue in Berkeley. Species uncertain.
A giant Pinguicula, approximately 20cm across, purchased at an experimental solar farm as "Octopus Plant". Species Uncertain.
An immense nepenthes, purchased at a flower shop in Telegraph Avenue in Berkeley. Species uncertain. Possibly Maxima, or Rafflesiana. That's not a trick of perspective, the plant is 60cm across, the traps are 20-30cm long. Extremely excited to acquire this specimen.
If anyone can identify these species, please let me know in the comments!
Finally, a stately and elegant visitor to a Thai Basil plant. Stayed for several days before moving to a lavender. Approximately 7cm. Once again, can anyone identify the species of mantis?
