Here are some good sets of pics to start this thread!
To recap, here's Feb 9th, 2018 (I know, I know, off topic, but hey, this is worth the comparison):
And now we have a pic from this morning ( March 5th, 2018) before heading out to the office. (Note to self:prune that lemon grass in the lower right hand corner, you missed it! LOL)
First flower of the season to pop? I guess it's a tie between a flava cuprea Brunswick Co, NC and a S. flava 'heavy veins' or something like that (it's a flava with intense coloration underneath the lid). I think this heavy veins plant is also a carolina clone, but don't quote me on that. Here's the flava heavy veins:
And the cuprea brunswick Co, NC. Notice all the freshly potted plants in the background, last year was overwhelming and a lot didn't get completed, but this year, we divided a massive number of plants:

I've been busy building a new grow area in my back yard and getting the plants setup in their new crib. The area is 22' long by 16' wide and gives me double the table space for plants then I had. I still have a few finishing touches that I'm working on but I think its complete enough to share some photos. Meanwhile, the plants are really starting to take off. I'm finding new buds and pitchers on more plants almost daily.
I like the setup! Nice, and organized. I'm jealous of the plants though, the only life at my place is a couple plants that came in in bad shape so I forced them to wake up. Hoping that would give them the best shot at recovery.

gotsarrs I’ve taken some of my plants outside already despite the weather here still dropping in the 20’s at night but rises up in the 40’s during the day. I’m feeling out the weather, but I know I will be putting out all of my plants outside in about 2-3 weeks time depending on the warm weather progression, then I’ll post some photos of them.
Meantime, my first attemp at seedling is promising ! Seeds I got from meizzwang , high germination rate seeds, thanks Mike ! I keep them under light 16 hours a day, 22°C (72°F) . In few weeks I will try MaxRoids to boost them !!!
Where do you live? Did you have your plants in pots outside at 5F? If so, were they covered up? Just curious.
I'm living in south West of France (Zone 8b). My plants stayed outside in big pots and covered with pine needles, I store them near a wall exposed South -East : they are protected from rain and wind and the sun will quickly heat the substrate.
The past two weeks we passed through a exeptional cold wave : temperatures fell to 5°F during 5 days (but sunny). Near the wall I think temperatures were not so cold and quickly heated by the sun -> no damages.
I let one pot on a less protected area (AKA not near the wall) and flowers were damaged by the frost.
If I had not this protected zone near my wall, I wouldn't let the plants without a better protection (plastic film).
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.
Oct 5, 2019 20:28:05 GMT -5
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: I have just joined this forum so will make a few mistakes - So here goes I have recently started my collection and now have some 150 to 200 plants during my first year. I have some very nice flowers spikes and would like to propagate.

mikee: So I would like to know the different properties for colour - vigor - size etc I don't have the time due to my age so would not be able run over many years can someone help or guide me

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.
