    If they're dead sure, cut them off. No problem.

    OK I was not sure if they needed them to gain energy for the spring.

    I am on the kick of "an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure" thing. I want the divisions to focus on repairing the tissue where it was divided rather than flowering.
    I don't want EVERY Sarracenia, just everyone that I see!!

    Flowers still produce tissue for photosynthesis - a flower in no different from a pitcher in growth terms. It's the formation of seeds that require excess energy.

    If you have a less than healthy plant, flowering just means you end up with two poor pitchers and a flower stem instead of three poor pitchers.

    A flower also is made of fairly sturdy stuff and will photosynthesise for longer than the equivalent pitcher.

    Here's the flowers which are now growing like weeds.

    I regret little to nothing!

    I took out 3 more this morning and planted them. The first one I did has a nice 10" tall flower spike now!

    i have several stalks coming up. rubra. leuco and leuco red. they woke up early in the fridge and it is still freezing outside. they are potted up and under 1 CFL bulb(75watt equivilant i think...) the stalks so far are green. and i going to get green flowers? and will this have any negative effects on the flowering?
