    Question Flower Variation

    I have an unidentified sarracenia that I recieved bare-root. I decided to divide it in two while it was still bare-root. Now both divisions are flowering. One divison already flowered making all green flowers. The other division, even though it hasn't opened yet, has a completely red bud. In other words, its not gonna be all green! And both plants have extremely varying flower height between each other. So my question is, can the exact same plant have different flowers?

    Are you talking about the sepals or the petals? If the sepals haven't opened yet how can you tell the color of the petals?

    Well I mean one is entirely green so if I see some red on the other one it's probably not gonna be all green. Can sunlight differences change the outcome of a flower?

    Ok. I guess that's the answer then. I just didn't think it could make such a big difference.

    The flowers will be the same colour. Sunlight may redden the sepals slightly, but that's about it.

    Yellow flowers often start off red, as do all-green pitchers.
