    My Sarracenia is growing well but the new Trumpets are not standing upright.....It gets plenty of sun and rain and/or spring water....

    Not sure of the species but it is green with some red at the top of the Pitchers.

    any thoughts?

    You know, I asked this same question last year about "floppy pitchers" and got all sorts of smart arsed answers, LOL!

    I'm thinking that some varieties of pitcher plants put up floppy pitchers early in the season, and they're followed by more tumescent ones later in the season.
