A NEW Temporary Plant Blog

As you know. I landed in the U.S and Meadowview about 5 days ago and I decided to write my things there because I'm going to have about 360 blog posts and this blog will be exploded if I do so here. Here's another thing: everything will be in  FINNISH. Because last year I really used quite a lt of time translating my thoughts to english. This blog will be still alive and starts living again in fall once I get back to Finland after this "short" trip :)

So'up heres the address:

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:
