I don’t normally post Thursdays, but today is special! With this post, I’m participating in the Urban Jungle Bloggers community! Every month, UJB bloggers post their interpretation of a theme, and this month’s theme is Plant Gang! How can it get anymore badass and gangster when you gather a bunch of carnivorous plants together?
Here’s one of my gangs! These are all my flytraps in tea cup/ceramic container experiments! You may recognize a few!
The mini teacups are the most darling things. I’m sure they were meant for a doll set. I’m experimenting to see how my tiniest Venus flytrap division fair in those. Two are still a bit cranky about it, but one of them digs it!
Yep, that’s a Utricularia livida in one of them too. It’s put out two flowers and is loving the tiny tea cup life!
My gang of my favorite Utricularia! U. blanchetti and and sandersonii have really taken off since I first planted them in tea cups back in November!
And of course, I can’t post about a plant gang without the creepy adorableness (or adorable creepiness?) of my doll head planters!
The little guy on the right was my first one. Can you tell by how whitened out he is from the sun? Look how much that Drosera. binata has grown! The middle one is my most recent brain surgery patient, planted with Drosera collinsiae, hamiltonii, and coccicaulis “Alba”. All three are my most recent acquisitions from Predatory Plants. (Psst: save 10% on your order from PP when you enter “thecarnivoregirl” at checkout!) This reminds me that I REALLY need to update my dang grow list!
The little dollhead family gang is expanding soon! Some of you may have seen this teaser I posted on Instagram!
Oh yes, clown gangs! What is the world coming to? 🙂
Onto another plant gang! These are my divisions from my Sarracenia Judith Hindle x flava var. atropurpurea and flava var. cuprea! They’re in individual pots that I keep in one big water tray.
Some of these pitchers are getting just as big, if not bigger than the mother plant! I’ll be sending some off to new homes soon! Enter your email below if you want to be notified when I’ll have plants for sale!
And finally, I want to share a moment with you SO GANGSTER, I could hardly believe it.
Pygmy sundews are usually clustered together in little blinged out mini-gangs. My Drosera omissa x pulchella are no different… except that this little gang brought down a mother-freaking CRANE FLY!
I swear on my space bucket that I did not put that crane fly there! These little guys took it down all by themselves!
And just to be extra badass, they’re also flowering while feasting on some crane fly.
I know you all got some gangster-ass carnivorous plants out there! What’s the biggest, most surprising prey your plants have taken down? Let me know in a comment!
And if my fellow bloggers are looking for inspiration, I highly encourage you to check out Urban Jungle Bloggers! There are some awesome growers in the community and the monthly prompts are super fun! In my opinion, all they need are more carnivorous plants. 😉
