    Sarrs a bloomin'

    Well the blooming season is upon us so I figured I'd share.

    A Phil F cross (leuco "purple lips x flava cuprea)



    The flava corner




    A confused flava


    And the most mutated bloom I have seen on a Sarr ('Reptilian Rose')





    Hope you enjoy

    I love the confused flava flower. LOL. Neat deformed flower. It looks more like the "umbrella" broke off, though. :x Great Sarrs.

    pollinating a flower

    I attempted to pollinate some flowers this morning however when I put the cuetip in and rolled it to collect pollen as I pulled the cuetip out I did not see any pollen. Does this mean that the pollen is not ready or is the pollen pretty small that you may not see it. This is the first attempt at self pollinating so I am not quite sure.

    Thanks for any help

    Here's a collective picture of some of mine:



    The new location at the new house really seems to bring out the colors in my sarras. I love this time of year!

    The pollen is sometimes close enough to white in color that it is difficult to see on the white cotton without magnification. If the pollen is ripe enough usually a good amount collects in the "umbrella" (style). The pollen should be clearly visible against the green of the style. It is also a good idea to collect pollen directly from the anthers which may be fresher and less likely to be contaminated with pollen from other plants dropped by visiting bees.

    Just repeat a few times every couple days in case things were not ripe or receptive.

    It has been observed that multiple hand pollination attempts may lead to better seed sets.

    See this article on how to pollinate Sarracenia flowers. The photos however are no longer online.
