These photos are all from the first. We've had enough cloudy days that the color on my plants isn't quite as nice as it could be, but that won't be a problem for too long. This'll probably be my last batch of photos until I get back home for the summer. First up is the sarr I've had for longest: The pitchers look pretty nice, but it looks like the top of the flower bud was chewed on by something, and it has stopped growing.
My new S. rosea was the last one to start coming out of dormancy:
My flytraps look nice, as always:
This little guy bit off more than he could chew:
One of the growth points from the sarr that started to rot has begun to open its pitcher:
And last is the rhizome chunk I got in the rhizome sale. I was worried because it had no growth points, but that's clearly not a problem anymore:

Today was very overcast as we had rain yesterday and more rain is forecast for the next two days so I decided I'd use the reprieve from the sun to trim last seasons remaining growth from the plants. The plants are all nice and clean now and the rhizomes ready to adsorb as much sunlight as possible. While working on the plants a few caught my eye and I thought I'd share them.
Very nice sidorian. Mike's Cuprea 'Best Clone' is a great plant. If you're ever looking to add another great Cuprea to you collection I highly recommend F. Cuprea 'Bill Hoyer' clone. You won't be disappointed.

My plants are still waiting for spring on the cold sun porch. We're expecting almost a foot of snow today! IMG_5805 by aroids101, on Flickr
Some newbies and a Heliamphora hangin by the window. I didn't want to put the newbies in the cold porch because they had already started to grow. Without a doubt they don't have enough light, hopefully it warms up soon. This year I have a hoop house so that should help. IMG_5803 by aroids101, on Flickr IMG_5804 by aroids101, on Flickr
This spring weather is ridiculous. Right now the Royals are playing the Angels and it's snowing. Next two mornings here in the KC area will be in the mid 20's. Stupid.
It really is. I’m at school in IA right now, and there’s been maybe a handful days of “spring” weather. Even back home, everything is happening WAY later than normal. My VFTs didn’t start shooting up flowers until this week. Unfortunately, the same crazy storm that’s making it snow here at school made it windy enough back home that many of the sarr pitchers got bent pretty badly and no longer stand on their own :/
Some signs of spring here finally. There's a bunch more popping up, but I'll save you guys the boredom of looking at little balls on stems. Unfortunately this also means now I have to keep a hawk's eye on the weather for the next month (mumbling profanities)
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?
Feb 12, 2020 0:35:25 GMT -5
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.
