    What about pingucula, utricarla, heliumphora and darlingtonia? All of those have flowers that rival those of sarracenia and some of them have flowers that rival the most stunning orchids.

    Utricularia are certainly the only genus that can compare to orchids for spectacular flowers, and not that many species either. Sarracenia and Darlingtonia flowers are certainly unique though.

    True, they do have flowers more unique than any other cp. My point was that there are lots of CP's with nice flowers, not just sarracenia and darlingtonia.

    Its all subjective, but I love the how they (sarracenia) have such complex looking upside down flowers. What makes them even cooler IMO is that they are native to NA.

    Awesome, man. You've got some great looking plants. I really like those dews and pings.

    I personally think that D. prolifera and its close allies have some of the best flowers of all CP's.

    However, congrats on the lovely Sarracenia bloom. I am somewhat envious of your Oregon climate. I have yet to ever bloom a Sarracenia in Alaska.

    Roridula are tough plants, but they sure don't agree with the rain here. I'd like to put the plant back outside, but I'll need to figure out a way to protect it from the rain this time around. It's in a huge pot so it takes up a lot of space and is hard to fit under lights - a problem that will only get worse as it grows.

    Dexenthes, I wonder if the shorter growing season there doesn't give the Sarracenia enough time to build up energy for flowering?
