The first of my many Trichodiadema densum to fully open its flower.



For scale, I've shown the full diameter of the pot which is 5.5cm  ;D

A bit of a Darlingtonia flower colour variation and actually from California.

Posting photos of one's meal seems to be a fad these days so here's a proxy one I took for my plants.

Yum.  A stench and bluebottles in the greenhouse today had me wondering about a dead animal somewhere ... until I remembered Arum dioscoridis ;D

This Lithops has decided this year that three leaves are better than two. Normally for me, seedlings start with three and later change to the norm of two as they mature.

Spotted three of these flowers at the back of the taller pitchered plants.





And yes, that pitcher is from the same plant as the flowers.

The welding visors are on standby. The Disa have started to flower.
