I only have two pitchers open so far this season, both in the last day or two. The low temps continue with sporadic sunny days. I’d say we are at least a month behind years past in growth…SUCKS. I am going to assume the season is a wash as far as getting a decent fall pitcher display, especially leucophylla, because at this rate they will barely be finished with spring growth by the time fall gets here.
Anyway, I was out checking on things between rain storms today and decided to snap a few shots of the only interesting thing I saw out there today..."glass is half full" type of thoughts
Ha ha thanks bro and yeah that's my Saurus and it's a 3 gallon pot, cause I want this to become big so I've given it all that room to grow in😅
LOL I just knew that had to be one of Phil's giants! You and I think alike, I also like to pot anything I want to get big in large pots right off the bat so they can remain undisturbed for as long as possible. I have my Saurus in a 12" wide x 10" deep pot for now. I think a 3 gal. pot is 10" x 10" Good growing my plant bro.
I know how @audacityofthemind feels - finally the plants are making some good progress and are looking about ready to pop!! A couple more days of questionable conditions and then it looks like we might be in the 70s and 80s for a while! Woot! Excited to have plants that look like more than phyllodia to share with y'all finally, although they won't be in downright bonanza mode until end of the month. Photos taken today 5/14 in an non-forecasted sunny afternoon! Overview: Scoping out the red flava row: I had Saurus in the greenhouse to baby it, so it's way ahead. This trap has been open about a week and is beginning to show the red suffusion that will cover the trap soon! Ditto with Wilkerson's Red Rocket - these are about 36" and weeks ahead of the other leucos. How much of this is "greenhouse gainz?" Last spring it was 32-33" with no greenhousing. Seems like the warmth is good for about a 10% boost on most plants. S. "Calen Hall" just opening - thanks philcula for this blotched badass! Improved Black Veins with a lot of darkening and ornata-ing still to come S. rosea Mobile Co. AL Clone P
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!

Skirt: Sarracenia can grow in Miami, right?

DirtyDivisions: Yep, Sarracenia will grow anywhere! In your toilet even...if have the proper amount of light etc...

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.
