    Dark spots on flava...

    Okay, I don't know if this is a disease, rot, or just indigestion, but it has me worried. There is a really big bee right where this spot is, but this pitcher is only a week old.

    It is better to burn out, than to fade away....

    the sun isn't out, so you're not seeing a silhoutte. That's the dark spot I'm talking about. If it's indigestion, isn't that going to ruin this pitcher. It's probably the biggest one I'll get out this plant this year, so if so, that sucks.

    Which pitcher are you talking about? The one in the middle or the one on the right?

    Sarracenia "bruise" like that when damaged. Probably the bee stung the pitcher in it's struggle. Upsetting as it is, it's just nature taking its course and there's nothing you can do about it short of putting your plants in unnatural conditions.

    As the song says from Robert Altman's "Brewster McCloud":

    "How the bird sing when she is flying.
    And how the bee sting when she know she is dying."

    Wind and rain have ruined some of the best pitchers on my flava and oreophila. Wind finished off one of the shipment damaged flower stalks on the oreophila. So it goes.

    Looks like the regular consequence of pitchers filling up.

    Sometimes the inside of pitchers turn purple and you can see it from the outside. I don't know why it happens, but the pitcher itself will be fine.
