    Hey Trent,

    Same plant if I am correct about the source (our mutual friend). These pics were taken the day the bloom first opened up, the petals have coloured up a it more since then and are the same bright chartruese you describe. With that slight flush of pink near the base.

    Some Sarracenia Flowers

    I just wanted to share a few photos of some of my Sarracenia flowers.

    First is S. luecophylla 'Titan'. It sent up 10 blooms this year! I am very excited about that. It's a record for my small collection. And what was really interesting is that they are quite pungent this year -- potently fragrant. They were very mild last year -- could barely smell them.



    The second is the last of the S. flava blooms. They went early and quickly this year for some reason.


    And finally an S. alata about to get another mouthful. This pitcher is already in decline due to over eating I think. It's just about packed to the rim.

    Thank you. I try to take as good as care as I can but mostly I think it's from their enormous appetite. It's amazing how much insect matter is caught in their pitchers. I always cut open a few old ones in February when I clean them up for the new growing season. And they are just packed with the exoskeletal remains of all that has been devoured the last season. All that nutritional energy has to go somewhere I guess.

    I just got so excited because last year this plant only put up 2 or 3 blooms if I remember correctly. I've never had a single plant put up this many blooms.
