    spent flowers

    Hi all:

    Should I leave the flower stocks on my sarrs even though they are done blooming? or should I let the plant produce seeds?

    Well, do you want seed?

    If you don't want the seed then chop the flower. You may want to keep the stem though as it can photosynthesize.

    Alexis is a better one to respond, but my understanding is that the seeds will be ripened in the fall.

    Hi All:

    Im not sure if they are pollinated or not, but now they are falling down, so I guess I will chop them. The plant seems healthy enough.

    I wanted to ask something similar, I have a flower (my first) and all the anthers have fallen out of it and the base of the "umbrella" has swollen. I have no other Sarracenia in flower. The chance of it being pollinated is...? Basically I am also wondering if I should chop mine.

    Thanks!

    p.s. sorry for the mini-hijack
    Trying to rebuild. Feel free to PM me with questions.

    My oreophila flowered and I tried to pollinate it, I used the how to pollinate a sarracenia flower faq but I had trouble finding the stigma. My first sarracenia to flower.

    So seed should be ready next fall?
