Happy Friday! I’m calling today Flower Friday, because that’s what I got for ya! Let’s start with a game of “Can You Guess the Plant Name From the Flower?” I’m giving you three carnivorous plant flowers that look very similar. No cheating (ie: looking at past posts or file names)!
The answers are at the bottom of this post! 😉
In the meantime, here’s some more carnivorous plant flower action for your viewing pleasure!
My first butterwort flower! Pinguicula “Sethos” has possibly the short flower stalk I’ve seen on a carnivorous plant. Though you gotta love the sticky, hungry, dewy bits all over the flower parts as well!
A pretty red flower from Sarracenia “Hummer’s Hammerhead”! It reminds me of a red apple. I applied pollen from my Judith Hindle x flava var. atropurpurea to a few of “Hummer’s Hammerhead” flowers. It was totally amateurish, but we’ll see if any viable seeds form!
Just because it’s so pretty, here’s the Judith Hindle x flava var. atropurpurea flower again!
The shape of Utricularia sandersonii flowers look interesting and unusual even before they become angry bunnies!
I suppose this angry bunny is a lop-eared variety? Hah! It actually got a bit beaten up by recent rain we had here in California.
The Drosera spatuala are doing what they do best: looking cute and dewy, and putting up flower stalks like nobody’s business!
I’ve got an intense urge to find more doll heads. More carnivorous plants need to become doll brains!
Thanks for viewing and playing! The answers to the first three pictures are below! How did you do? Tell me in a comment! If you liked these photos, please share this post! Have an excellent weekend!
