    I think utrics are definitely under-appreciated. They are very easy to keep. And they flower more than any other of my CPs. I love them and can't wait to get more varieties.

    As much as I like the graceful pitchers of N. Ventrata, I think it's too common in collections and at nurseries, so it's kind of boring.

    While there is no specific plant or plants which I dislike, I am simply not fond of long dormancy periods where everything looks like crap until Spring or having to answer just why I let my plants "die" every late Fall or Winter . . .

    For me that's the biggest allure of plants like Sarracenia: That they renew annually. To me, it's like getting my very first sarra each and every spring!

    Although I do like S.psitticina, I would have to agree about the hybrids, they are aweful looking. I put one of those "bug" series with an obvious psittacina lineage into one of my bogs last year and I kinda hope it doesn't make it through the winter. It's an eyesore in an otherwise great looking bog. Ugly, ugly plants. By the way... if does make it, FREE bug series abberation to anyone who wants it in the spring ! I'm also not a big fan of most Nepenthes hybrids. Crossing them just seems to dilute the most attractive aspects of both parents in most cases, and a lot of them take on that unnatural looking red tone.
