I have today off and thought I would snap a few shots:
Lowes rescue Sarracenia rubra after 2 months out of "the tomb":
Youngest specimen of Sarracenia leucophylla 'Hurricane Creek White' I decided to conduct an experiment using the Osmocote fertilizer pellets. I pushed 3 pellets gently under the soil line 2 months ago. The wilted pitchers are old growth. The new growth since I placed the pellets in the soil is obvious... nearly twice the height of existing pitchers and still growing! Additionally it has formed another growth point. This plant is only 2 years old and already has a pitcher approaching 8 inches!
The characteristic all white top of the cultivar is already showing!
in about 2 months both the Sarracenia leucophylla 'Hurricane Creek White' and Sarracenia rubra ssp. rubra will go outside in my bog gardens. It'll be interesting to see the progress on the test 'Hurricane Creek White' versus the medium plants from separate clones that have been outside for full dormancy.
