    It Ain't Necessarily So...

    No seed in this one...

    I guess I'll have to wait. Believe it or not, this is the first season I've ever had with Darlingtonia and Sarracenia flowers that have survived past the spring. I don't know what to expect from them or when. Will they dehisce, like a devil claw pod?

    The seed capsules will turn brown and eventually split open. Darlingtonia should be ready mid-July on. Sarracenia usually take longer and can usually be harvested around mid-September even if the capsules are not fully brown or splitting open.

    A pod just shriveled up and dehisced. So I snipped it and took a look inside:

    Nice seed, Jim. The odd (but usual for them) shaped seeds remind me of spiked clubs.

    I just harvested the other pod, that had dehisced. I counted ~165 seeds. Don't know if it was me or the critters who did the pollinating:
