    New Sarr question.



    When could I expect this large, healthy flava to start pitchering?

    In just a week or two it should start making a flower and pitchers!

    It depends on where you live and where the plant was growing before. How old is the plant? If it's 3+ years it will probably flower before sending up pitchers.

    Sarracenia take under normal circumstances at least 5 to 7 years to mature. When it will decide to grow is up to the plant and when it feels warm enough to take its first peek of the season. NO ONE can tell you when it will start. Plants, like people have a mind of their own.

    Thanks guys. Exactly what I needed to hear.

    My experience with Sarr's is limited to the wild minor that grows in my hometown. I never paid too much attention to what new leaves looked like, so....

    The growing points are the pointy parts (sort of triangular-cone shaped) on the rhizome. The crown is formed by the bases of the leaves and or growth points. The flower buds and stalks form in the middle of the growth points and look like a tiny cabbage or brussel sprout. New leaves start out like threads or ribbons from the points. On all my Sarrs these start off reddish but I don't have that many species or have been growing them long enough to say that this is always the case. I suspect not.

    They actually are red more often than not; I beleive it has to do with the kind of wavelengths of light being absorbed to fuel growth.
