Farges’ Cypripedium - Cypripedium fargesii 
Cypripedium fargesii (Asparagales - Orchidaceae) is a bizarrely attractive dwarf slipper orchid. This species is very rare, uncommon and with a very restricted distribution, confined  to south Gansu, west Sichuan, west Hubei and north Chongping, China.
This species is listed on the IUCN Red List as Critically Endangered, mainly due to habitat loss (it has a rather narrow range) and illegal collection for the orchid trade.
This particular plant is grown from laboratory-raised seed in Europe. It has very specific needs and is difficult to grow over the long term.

Yellow Pitcher Plants
A small group of Sarracenia flava rubricorpora (Sarraceniaceae).
The species produces pitchers only in the spring and phyllodia (pitcherless leaves) in late summer. The flowers are bright yellow, quite large, and tend to have a musky “feline” odor.
The subspecies shown, Sarracenia flava rubricorpora, has a red tube, with the lid veined and either yellow or green. This plant is very beautiful, but unfortunately usually only produces a single large pitcher per rosette each year, so fields of this variety are somewhat sparsely pitchered. It is A rare plant, it is only found in the Florida panhandle.

Paula Hayes - Nocturne of the Limax Maximus (2010)

"Inspired by the leopard slug, a hermaphroditic animal with mating rituals quite unique in the natural world. Two twine around each other to form a caduceus shape, then suspend themselves in mid-air from a long mucous string. The incandescent blue male organs of each emerge from the tops of their heads and, likewise, twine around the other’s to form a glowing orb that slowly morphs into a flowerlike form.”
