""Purple Passion Plant"   

Today, I was thrilled to be able to attend an international Carnivorous Plant Convention at the Johnson & Wales Inn, in Seekonk, Mass. I was able to learn a lot about, purchase a bunch and see a ton of Carnivorous plants and bog plants! I got 4 new babies today, to start what shall be known as my, Carnivorous Garden"! This guy was just sooo stunning, I made it my first addition!

This planting is in the Purchased for Self, Carnivorous Garden garden .

    After almost killing this beauty off, it has begun to stabilize. New growth is steady, leaves that looked in bad shape have all “rotted” off or been snipped off, and all seems calm with the purple guy

    Eek! I let the terrarium get too moist and the water on this poor thing “burned” it! Yikes, removed its planter from the terrarium and moved to a partially sunny area to dry! On a good note though, it has a definite second stem, and noticeable growth bud

    Happy as a Clam in its’ larger planter <3 I have discovered, there were actually 2 plants in then the planter, and one of them was just hidden underneath of the parent plants lower leaves :)
