    My Sarracenia minor is producing really curved pitchers. What's going on?

    My Sarracenia Minor seemed to grow really fast when I got it a few weeks ago. It arrived about two weeks ago and instantly shot up 2 new leaves. However, the leaves are starting to curl over. What's going on? Is it just transplant shock?

    Who knows? The first few pitchers of the season are sometimes funky looking on many Sarracenia.

    The Savage Garden says that Sarracenia Minor produces it's best pitcher early in the season.

    I guess I'll wait and see.

    There's a difference between "early in the season" and "the first pitcher of the season."

    Also, if they keep doing it for a while, maybe they need more light?

    I didn't look at your picture well enough... It looked like indoor lights, but I was obviously wrong. lol

    Maybe Cialis or Viagra is needed.
