If you’ve searched carnivorous plants online at all, you may have come across a blog known as The Pitcher Plant Project. My pal Rob Co is the owner of said blog, and the greenhouse in which he houses his plants is affectionately known as The Asylum (I love it!). My friend Megan is also a friend of Rob’s and visited the area last weekend! The three of us got together and spent a few hours in carnivorous plant
It’s been a dream for me to visit a personal collection like at the Asylum since I first got into carnivorous plants. Please enjoy my MANY photos from the visit below!
An S. leucophylla, which I believe was ‘Helmut’s Delight’.
An S. alata, possibly Maroon Throat? I was really not paying attention to names and species as I was shooting!
More leucophylla goodness!
Oh hai, Rob!
Lots of Drosera stickiness at the Asylum too!
Lots of succulent love too! I especially enjoyed this red Crassula beauty.
Anthocyanin-free goodness! I believe these were the courtii AF x venosa AF crosses that Rob made.
Look at that color contrast! A form of S. excellens, I believe?
I’m a sucker for red/green contrast like this, too!
The one and only S. x ‘Legacy’!
Sarracenia minor goodness!
Pretty Tillandsia, too!
Snails don’t seem to bother this Nepenthes!
And this where my lack of Nepenthes knowledge really shows. Uhh, N. sibuyanensis?
An aristo hybrid, right? ‘Cause the pitcher opening is on the side instead of the top!
Lil’ neps with lil’ helis!
That one Nepenthes with the awesome candy-striped peristome, am I right??
Also some very pretty orchid flowers I’ve seen on Pinterest quite often, but don’t know the name of!
Look at all those baby brontosauruses! The Sarracenia seedling tables was one of my favorites! They’re probably the cutest things in existence.
Hashtag sexy sarracenia, holla!
Well hello there, handsome!
Rob’s also got a sweet collection of Dionaea! Look at how red these pretties are!
I wanna say this is S. x ‘Green Monster’.
Gorgeous, plump S. purpurea var. venosa!
Dem leuco colors!
I met the lidless wonder, S. leucophylla ‘Bris’ in person! Even more lovable in real life than in photos, trust me!
And finally, look at these fine human beings in The Carnivore Girl logo shirts! Thank you Megan and Rob for representing my humble little brand and being such awesome people! It was a fantastic day and I can’t wait to do it again! 😀
