    Flowers are all pollinated and swelling up. Pitchers have been going up since April. All except S. x 'Dana's Delight' and S. 'Dixie Lace'.

    I looked at the 'Dixie Lace', peeling off the top dressing of LFS (green and slimey) - crowns were covered with carpet moss. Peeled that off and other than two undeveloping pitcher leaves per the two growing points nothing. A couple days later new leaf shoots!

    'Dana's Delight' pot was getting taken over by wood sorrel (shamrock). I had left it there for Saint Patrick's Day and then they were starting to flower and I wanted to see the flowers. I finally pulled them out. The first came out with a handful of soil, about the size of my fist. The second had roots around the Sarracenia rhizome and the rhizome pulled out along with the shamrock roots. Talk about extensive rooting. After the 'Dana's Delight' flowered it put up one undeveloping pitcher leaf. Now I know why it has been so slow.

    I probably can't give much comparison, since I just started growing CPs right after the freeze .. but from what I understand, my plants were grown outside before I got them (with the exception of just a couple of lowes plants). Just yesterday, I had a nice leuco pitcher open - rubricorpora flowered and pitchered and seemed unaffected by the frost. Here's mine two days ago:

    I'm up near Niagara Falls, Ontario (in Canada )
    I should likely have open flowers sometime today, and pitchers are looking to be about a week away from opening, but there's lots of them well past the 6" mark and they grow quite a bit every day lately
    Only a few species are not really doing much and I think at least one of those is dead

    Either way, for NJ it sounds like you're about as far along as you could hope at this time so don't lose faith

    Talking Not a bad start to the season...

    My Sarrs have all flowered. I lost a couple of flowers to the late freeze and had some damaged leaves. All recovered nicely. Judith Hindle and Catesbei each had about a dozen flowers. Rubras had about 6 each. Leucos took the biggest hit from the freeze. Most of my flowers are already starting to fade, dropping petals and such.

    Adult pitchers are growing right along. Flava started strong. Hindle and Catesbei are right behind. I am very happy how everything recovered.

    Now if we can just survive the great drought of '07.

    already trying to deal with that. this is going to be harder than the freeze because i just moved my plants into the garage to combat that (not until after the hit though...) ive already gone through 3 gallons of water in just a few days...

    My Sarras are sitting on my deck and getting lots of sunlight. My Darlingtonia seems to be doing well too. The plants are developing fast, but, it appears they are all too young to flower. Pity. My only plant that was in my care for dormancy and made no growth for awhile was S. Judith Hindle, my first Sarracenia, but, all of a sudden about 15-20 pitchers came out of the rhizome and started forming (a few have opened, the first two and the tallest were deformed, sad). I'm excited waiting for my S. leucophylla 'titan' to open a Spring pitcher I've been anticipating for a few weeks. Maybe another week or two and it'll be done.
