There is some improvement in the new growth showing, when compared with the previous pic here, so hopefully with a bit of warmer weather, this one will shed it's old skin and spring forth with new growth for you Fred.
Olde CP nuts never die - they just recommit themselves...
The Cono. sp had 11 heads before it went dormant this spring. There were still 11 heads covered in the old skins as they were coming out of summer dormancy, which was a result as far as I was concerned being new to this genus. However, now the skins are splitting I'm finding that there are far more heads than I'd bargained for.
I'm now estimating heads numbering in the high twenties. I must be doing something right.
Here's the plant cleaned up a bit. I removed one head from a triple ( centre) that looked very sad. The one I thought was a triple turned out to be a quad so I'll get round to counting them all sometime.
The C. minutum turned out to be a triple I'm still waiting for C. pillansii to show its body/ies off.
stevebooth: I don’t begrudge them the Sphagnum, it’s what is with it that I covet, plus they seem to totally remove the top layer and use the lower levels, I have hopefully rendered many of the pots more birdproof this afternoon.

dvg: So apparently the UK variant somehow commingled with the Indian variant to make a super love-child that's been named the Delta Strain...

stevebooth: The first new outside pitcher of the year has opened today, that’s some difference to the greenhouse plants. The flowers are looking nice though.
