    This is wonderful!

    It makes me glad I decided to offer one again and thanks WolfStriker for the photo and glad to see 'Leah' is doing so well. I am sure it just feeds the fire. I wish I had a host for some of my own photos but your does her real justice. In the orginal clump in the bog there were pitchers 50" for those of you who really like big plants. The opening on the pitchers can reach 4"-5" as well. Keep bidding!

    OK, here she is...and a "guest", soon to be dinner.

    Thanks but I think 'Leah' did all that growing all on her own. I just gawk at her every day. lol The flower is beautiful as well. She has two pitchers now and a third on the way up although they are slightly smaller than her first one.

    I hope everyone understands you can't just "go and get one" of these. This is a very RARE opportunity to own a spectacular Sarracenia originating from an unusually special location of robust plants.

    People all over the world are clamoring for this elegant lady and now YOU have a chance to acquire one. Worth the bucks! And a multitude of thank yous to Brooks for sharing one of these for our auction.

    OK, well I guess it's prefunctory that I show off my 'Leah' from last year's auction. I've only got one open pitcher thus far, as my plants are still breaking dormancy and budding here in Washington state. But, her first pitcher of the season is just over 30 inches tall.

    Bid on this auction or Alexander Hamilton will be plant food!

    This is probably the narrowest view of the pitcher possible - it's actually much wider than a bill from both the front and side. I just didn't manage to center any of the pictures I took from those angles. :P
    I think PAK is right, this plant is extremely robust. I just give it water and sunlight and it does the rest on it's own. If I can find it a bigger pot, I'm sure it'll do even better. Worth every penny! Thanks again, Brooks!
    Peace,
