One of my two specimens of Sarracenia purpurea venosa is in bloom. This happens about once a year if you're lucky. (And I'm somewhat disturbed, because apparently this means the plant thinks it is spring... it's off by 6 months.)

Maybe it's "eaten" too much.

Up here in the Northern climate, all my plants are turning brown from 2 nights of sub 30 degF temps.

My poor Genepi!!!!!

Whaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa!

It did eat very well during the spring and early summer, but then the exterminator came.

Isn't genepi used to the cold? I thought it was alpine.

Apparently not.

Although I had a few insights about growing Genepi this week...

I've been going about it all wrong.

ROCK GARDEN

Don't plant it like a plant.
It likes to creep.

So the key is...

Sunlight, dry, and arid. Almost like moss.

Maybe I should try some starts in my future indoor garden.

I've realized the big issue with Minimalist tendencies combined with a house that's one open 1,000 SF room. Once all the unnecessary crap is gone, there will be lots of emptiness.

Emptiness can be filled with GROWIES!

Of the 40+ genepi plants I started the year with, only one seems to be flourishing. That is the one I have growing in a pot at work. The A. gracialis I planted at my parents place were hit with 2 weeks of rain followed by an equal time drying out. Most of those didn't make it. A few managed to hang on and are looking OK.

The A. genipi plants all bailed. I will try again next year with a rock garden type setup!
