Flowers in December (not Poinsettias!)

How’s it going lovely readers? For those of you that celebrated Christmas, I hope you had a wonderful one! Whatever you celebrate, I hope your holiday season was warm, bright and cheery! I bet most of us are glad it’s over with, though! ūüėČ Time for a new year!

To finish off the holiday season, I wanted to show my recent utricularia¬†blooms! I have not been paying a ton of attention to my utrics¬†since potting them up in teacups.¬†I figured it would be too chilly and not enough light for them to do much flowering over the winter, but I was pleasantly surprised! Especially with my U. blanchetii! I am 90% sure these blooms definitely weren’t fully open¬†when I got them from Natch Greyes. We”re in a sunny streak here, so hopefully they enjoy that and flower for me some more!

Onward, bunnies!

I really like how U. sandersonii flowers look from a side angle. It really shows how strange and unique they are. They look more like snakes from the side!

Any pleasant surprises in your carnivorous garden lately? Tell me all about it in a comment!

Thanks for reading! I’ll probably do one more post before the year is done. See you then!
