A U. praetermissa flower stalk emerges from the moss, the first sign of flowering since it arrived here.
I have to state here that this plant is a a vigorous grower and fairly hardy, having endured nightly lows down to 6°c, with daytime highs steady around 19°c, during the winter months.
Mostly, those winter nights here were providing this species with temps consistently below 10°c, but now with spring here, the temps have risen to about 12°c overnight, with the weather's warming outside.
When the moss was pulled back around the edge of this species pot, there was so much undergrowth of bladder-traps and stolons, that it reminded me of the growth of my alpina.
There was a time before sunscreen, when i was a naive teenager, that I spent too long under our UV tanning light, and quickly looked liked a Trumpian raccoon, except instead of orange skin with white eyes, my hue was bright boiled lobster red.
