    Well I don't anticipate seeing a flower from mine this year. I grow them in the open, and both S. minor are usually the last Sarracenia out of dormancy for me each year. Next year I think I might bring them inside midwinter and have them finish their dormancy on a cold windowsill. By 'under glass' do you mean a cold frame, Alexis? I suppose that's also a thought.
    If someone has flowers coming up (not yet open) I do have a "Leah Wilkerson" bud coming up (nowhere near mature yet) that I'd like to cross with S. minor "Okee" - it won't quite be the hybrid I've got my sights set on, but some sort of giant S. x. excellens type of plant would still be neat.

    Hey Joe,

    There is a leuco "red" x minor "Okee Giant" out there actually, I am growing it. In fact IIRC it is one of two clones made by the same breeder. Very impressive plant.

    I have a Okee Giant as well which is going to bloom (or may have bloomed, been so bloody busy writing that I have been a bit negligent of the bog lately.) If the bloom is still viable I have some tentative plans for it but this past weekends wind storm may have made those moot...

    A greenhouse or coldframe will help I think. My coldframe gets pretty hot - it's an easy way to boost the temperature.

    I'm growing S. minor and S. minor "Okee giant." Both varieties bloomed this year.
