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.
stu: Hi Mike: I’m pleased to report that the S. rubra wherryi Chatom Giant you sent has arrived in great shape as did the bonus plant from NC. Both are now back under southern skies and are feeling warm, humid, and at home again. Thanks!

adaetz100: Sarracenia purpurea tends to add a lot of red/purple to its offspring, but there are some lovely dark red flava x leucophylla crosses too. Look up 'Royal Ruby' if you're not familiar with it already--it's a natural flava x leuco hybrid
