Hardy Sarracenia for my file


By Siris

Hardy Sarracenia for my file (Sarracenia flava rugelli "Black Water Florida")

Having now put my 4 Pitcher plants individually in my file, trying to identify them individually. Believe this is the hardy Sarracenia flava var. flava 'North Carolina'.

I love it, this one is loving me. All the stamens have shrivelled now, must wait to see if seed develops.

Good luck Sue....

Don't think I have managed to pollinate because apparently the 'unbrella' starts to turn upwards if successful. It was only an exercise!

You cannot win them all!!

Hi Siris

I will have to have a look at mine .... see what happening

Gg, a question:- do the flowers usually appear before the new pitchers?

16 Jun, 2016


Hi Siris

yes and no as I have the leaves that turn into pitchers grow at the same time but then the flower romps away and leaves the pitchers standing.

I will cut all mine off (flowers) soon so the energy goes into the pitchers

Thank you for that information. You were right about that 'button' that you said was probably frosted, it is doing nothing. The 2 with red streaks are producing lax pitchers, was waiting to see if they would produce any flowers before photographing.

yours are doing great .... still lots of time for growing

I have moved a second one into this pond, now it is producing trumpets.
