Greetings from the fridge

About 60% of my plants are spending their dormancy in a fridge and I checked them out yesterday. Some Sarrs like leucos and alatas had woken up and put out leggy and white leaves whereas some were still nicely dormant.I cleaned the most of the Sarrs by pulling of dead and old leaves and for those woken up ones I put them under the light to out basement.  Mostly everyhing was fine but I lost a few seedgrown Darlingtonias because 'cos they froze in the fridge and I also lost D.filiformis earlier this winter because of the same thing. Oh well I have never tried this fridge dormancy method so I'm quite happy with he outcome so far.

Also remember that the rest of my temperate species are buried to the ground outside and thats also going to be interesting to see whether they make it or not.

I'm alive! Elossssa!

Jeez guys! I'ts unbeliveable how time like umm 3 months pass that quickly!

 Seriously I got a job in November and since then I had to work and do my thesis in my limited free time. However I finished my thesis and presented it about a week ago quite like confirming that I've successfully ended my studies! You might call me a horticulturist now! I'm still waiting for true and official papers but yeah it took me 3,5 years to pass my Bachelor's Degree. And oh yeah I'm going to U.S in March for 6 months! Its time to flee cold and gloomy Finland and go back to help MBRS again! :-)

A lot has happened with my plants which means quite much hence need to dedicate a seperate post for 'em.


Heres some current photos:

new sarra seeds!

UntitledSo today I went pick up a letter that I had received from frangelo (cpuk). I got the leuco seeds (LL 51 Leuco Russel Road x L9mk ALBA ) from him 3 years ago and those babies have grown very nicely! I think I have around 5-6 plants from the batch of 25 seeds. None of the m have flowered so far but maybe next year?

I was delighted to hear that frangelo had some last year's seeds though he didn't make any this season. I've grown well sorta old seeds from Tricky Utrici and I'm not worried at all to start growing 1 year old seeds.




I'm about to put the seeds in stratification tomorrow but to remind me in the future here's what I got:
I do not own the following photos!
