    From what I've seen, it encourages growth. The newer pitchers also seem more robust as a result of trimming.

    Make sure you don't catch any of the flower buds with your scissors and cut them off.

    I wish I had taken some pics of my leucos last year to show ya the difference.


    I agree with Jeff, trimming definitely helps with pitcher production. You could save the pitchers until you see new growth and then start trimming as they start coming up, that way you benefit from a little of both. Very nice bogs btw and great plants!

    my rule is: if its brown, its down; if its green, its clean. I always think of it in human terms: id want a dying limb removed, but not a healthy one!

    May 28 update

    We are finally having warmer weather here in Colorado, and the plants are responding by growing rapidly:



    I even have my first Sarracinia flower:



    The flytraps are coloring up now also:



    Lastly, the sundew is sending out a warm welcome this morning to all small flying insects:



    I'm looking forward to more growth this summer with the plants filling in the containers by this fall.
