Sorry to see that Yosemite, we had some crazy 45mph winds recently that broke a bunch of pitchers. No matter how much you fan them, feed them grapes, and water them like they were your master, mother nature's carnage will ultimately get to them outdoors.
Update from slooooooooow Oregon! For those of you who have been tuned into the show for a while now, you may recall that we had a pretty brutal winter here (by OR standards). Interestingly, even though early spring was extra cold too it didn't seem to affect the time at which the plants started to push flower buds. I think the plants are "clocked" to a certain extent as Bristol might say. Also keep in mind that the delta in daylight length here is way more extreme between the winter solstice and the spring equinox than it is further south, so if the plants are looking for an increase in day length as a signal to go, they are getting it and growing even if its still pretty cold. That said, the temperature part of the growth equation is seriously not holding up its end of the bargain lol. Naturenutz and all y'all more southern growers keep texting me dirty pictures of Sarrs in full glory and I'm sick of it! Here's where I be at: At least I've got Hattie the best cat in the world to keep me company while the plants are still slow: Can't wait to have more to share with everyone.
Forget about your plants calen. I'm looking at the overall picture. That's beautiful back yard and CP setup. One that I could only admire if it were my own. Look at the wood fence, not the ordinary frame and plank with beveled tops. Your kitty probably loves its new domain and territory. Be amazing when your plants bust up.
summit: Hey guys, I'm about to sow some seeds and I was curious to know what everyone thinks 'too hot' for Sarracenia seeds would be? Having them in the dome bumps up the temps a bit.

DirtyDivisions: summit I’ve been fine at a constant 95° F under the dome. Once the tiny seedlings have two pitchers I remove the dome and temps go down.

summit: @dirtydivisions Thanks for that! I'm sitting around 87-88F with the dome fully sealed but I wasn't doing that and sacrificing humidity to keep it cooler but I'll go ahead and close it down now!

mikee: Thanks you chofah, there is a great video from The Pitcher Project with Phil Faulisi this was what I was looking for. However it still appears to be wait and see what results come from the cross. Many thanks

Willy: It would be rather silly to expect totally predictable results from a cross. The individual plants grown from the seeds will vary, sometimes quite a bit, even with carefully protected hand pollination. If you open polinate, the variety may be even greater.

superstressed: Recently purchased a s. purpurea from Mike and I am so impressed with the quality of the plant that arrived. My Purpurea is now one of the larger plants in my collection! Mike also included an beautiful Flava var. for free. I will absolutely buy again.
