    Slow start to Spring in the North West

    With weather FINALLY warmed up, and the sun out....my Sarras, Cobras, Dews, and VFTs are finally waking up and growing.....
    flava var. cuprea pitcher, still waiting for the lid to fully form...just opened the other day



    flava var. rugelii


    Strange S. minor 'okee giant' flower, it was stunted from trying to wake up earlier in the season then getting frozen a couple times lol...stupid bi-polar washington.

    Little flava var. atropurpurea pitcher coming up, this one is from Brokken...was kinda worried it wouldnt make it at first since the division was so small, and had no roots....

    Community pot, not quite a bog garden or anything....All flava but the minor okee giant.
    flava var. rugelii
    flava var. cuprea
    flava var. atropurpurea
    flava var. maxima (i believe, will have to see until the pitchers from this year form, still a juvenile plant)

    Darlingtonia Californica 'Mountain Variety' Did many divisions from this little plant this year....gave em all out >_<

    continued in next post---

    Check with Brokken, he mentioned correcting the ID on the atropurp.

    S. purpurea ssp. purpurea (i believe) with last years pitchers, and some new ones coming up

    Mini-bogs, primarily lowes rescue plants


    Some Dionaea Low Giants, a S. leucophylla 'Hurricane Creek White' seedling, and an S. flava division....
    the HCW seedlings i have, have yet to send up pitchers but the rhizome looks good and healthy....the only leucophyllas i have that have begun to send up pitchers are my Tarnoks...the others havent started yet o_O

    Cute little D. intermedia, this plant flowered last season and was about to set some seed...then the flower head was bit off by something LOL

    Very nice. Soon, there will be few wasps -- insect types anyway -- in your neighborhood . . .

    Looking great. I don't know why, but my Sarrs are acting kind of funky right now...

    Last week it sounded like the hum of high tension wires around my Sarracenia. Angry wasps in most every plant. There must be a hive in the neighborhood . . .
