Great pics everyone! I second beautytubes that having a greenhouse does help reach a bit more potential with some plants in zone 6 and under although I prefer to have them in the ground for overall look. However I always angst this time of year as I want to get the plants outside to strengthen them up and get some pure sunlight but there is still a good risk of some cold nights.
Savannah Fire x Flava Cinnamon Tube (Wes Buckner) is always an early grower
Don't mess with Flava var Cuprea "Best Clone"
or flava var. ornata improved black veins
Another Wes Buckner creation, Green Monster x Purp Purp Heterophylla
And Karsyn Elise, ready to pop out with its distorted pitchers
Inspired by nevermore and the fact that I have limited room in my greenhouse AND this kiddie pool sprung a leak last year, here comes my bog #2:
Thing is freaking blue so gonna be a job to make sure I hide it but overall I'm optimistic it will work well.
Overall, great start to the season compared to last year and looking forward to more pics from y'all

April, everything is growing up ! Unfortunately I had some thrips issues...these nasty things attacked the phyllodes and the old leaves...so I trimmed everything (exept new leaves ). But the growth was affected (deformed pitchers ).
looking good Horizon46 ! I too had some pitcher damage due to pests (including a nice sized LW), but not sure if it was latent damage from a mealybug infestation last year or new pests this season. Luckily most pitchers are coming out fine, which hopefully has something to due with the two treatments of the neonicotinoid Dinotefuran I did in fall and early spring. Since the bees are out now, I'm trying to refrain from any of the hard stuff for now
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!

sanguinearocks101: I am planning on doing an order from Mike... and I’m on a budget, some of the hardest decisions I’ve ever made

sanguinearocks101: What are good plants to make hybrids with S. luecophylla with? Im looking for dark colors.

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
