    Yes, I think so. (Someone please correct me if I am wrong...)


    Those are some nice flowers, RCO. Anyone have any more pictures?

    Yahoo! Today's count brings me up to 106 flowers. My first time breaking the 100 barrier.

    Starting to see the first pitchers inflate now! Aaaaah spring.

    Self-pollination resulted in significantly lower offspring quantity and quality. Total seed number and total seed mass for self-pollinated capsules were approximately one-fourth that of outcrossed capsules. Germination, survivorship, and growth over 5 yr were also significantly lower for offspring from self-pollinated capsules. Together, these results suggest strong inbreeding depression in this species.

    Relative to offspring from intrasite crosses, offspring from intersite crosses were significantly larger after 5 yr of growth. This suggests that restoration efforts for Virginia S. flava will be most successful when plants from multiple sites are used.
