    Sarracenia Question

    Hi guys! I was wondering if anyone knows for sure why pitchers "pucker"? It isn't on every pitcher, just one here and there. I have asked a lot of my friends and no one that I have talked to is sure. Here is a pic of what I am talking about:

    I don't want EVERY Sarracenia, just everyone that I see!!

    It's annoying isn't it!

    There have been a couple of photos of clones which do it on every single pitcher.

    It's just a fact of organic life - plenty of humans have funny features too!

    In general though, hybrids do seem to suffer more than the pure species.

    One of my Sarrs are doing this too, it's a tad annoying but, I don't think particularly harmful.

    Okay, I know that you have been waiting on my sage advice about puckering pitcher plants.
    Here goes...........BECAUSE THEY WANT TO.lol
    Every seed that you plant ,doesn't sprout.
    Every seed that sprouts, doesn't make it to maturity.
    Every cutting that you stick doesn't grow roots.
    Every cutting that roots doesn't grow to a small plant.
    Every small plant doesn't reach maturity.

    I completely agree with Lois -- at times, sarrs will just do "stuff"...:-) and what alexis says

    "It's just a fact of organic life - plenty of humans have funny features too!" Hahah...

    We all start out looking weird and turn into a thing of beauty.
    Most Human babies are born with their heads sloping to one side, or looking like cones.
