    Yeah...I know those are just averages. Temps will fluctuate higher and lower than that. But that was all I could find on environment for that area.

    Here in VA we don't just get "dips" in the temperature. We can have long cold spells and snow on the ground for extended periods at times. So I'm going to be a little cautious with these.

    Just wanted to let you know mine came on Wednesday. They are potted up in their new homes.

    Mine came as well, many thanks to you. I only found 1 little inchworm of some kind. SPLAT!!! Sorry bug but you don't belong this far north. The look pretty good considering.

    Thanks

    As Brook's said before, this is an example to the community at large that we are serious about not allowing the sarracenia to disappear from this country, even if you mow down every last one of them. We will be there to pick up the pieces, and make sure those pieces stay intact with their genetic integrity. DO NOT allow them to flower in proximity to your other plants. Bag'em if you know how, or just plain isolate them so no other sarr pollen can get to them. Preserve the genome for our future, and let the seed's be "pure" from this site, and this site only. Then any seed you plant, grow, and give away, can have this location data transferred along with it. Everyone will know, 100 years down the road, that any plant that they get from the ICPS, or NASC is true to its species, and the exact spot where it came from will be known, and documented in the NASC archives when we finally get into swing. Still, many more bogs are in trouble, so be aware of what is going on around you, keep your eyes open, and save all the plants you can. Each and every site is unique to itself because of the genes passed around in it for who knows how long. All of you who received these plants, my hat is off to you. Thank you for stepping forward to accept the responsibility of knowing what it means to steward these plants. You guard them like a child of your own. It is a big responsibility not to mix the plants, unless you do a personal hybrid under very tight controls. Good growing, to all of you!

    Mine are settling in as we speak - they should look great next season. Thanks again Brooks for all the effort.

    Hey BugMeister...could either you or Brooks write up a little "article" on how to bag the sarracenia flowers?

    We could then pin the topic and it would be there for reference for any time plants are rescued and placed into stewardship. That way people wouldn't have to keep asking and there would be a better chance for keeping the genetics pure.

    For that matter...you could also add how to cross pollinate two (like) plants and THEN how to bag.

    I think it would be a BIG help!

    Thanks. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/biggrin.gif[/img]

    I received my plants this week in good condition and potted them up in a mix of 40% peat, 40% silica sand and 20% perlite. Now the the pitchers are suddenly looking all dry. Another grower mentioned the same thing happening with his crestview plants. Anybody know what's going on?
