    Is this pod doing anything?

    It's been a few weeks since I hand pollinated these:





    Today, one of these pods looks like this:



    Is it swelling or is too early to tell?

    Good! Finally! I know what goes where but just don't do well at getting the gametes together. I'm hoping the critters will get to the porch and take care of the Sarracenias. One thing I've noticed is that different species open up flowers, days apart. So there shouldn't be much in the way of cross-pollination.

    Sorry to rain on the parade, but swelling doesn't indicate a successful pollination. Until you open up in the fall, you won't know if you have 0, 1 or 200 seeds.

    Is it normal for the pods to turn upward?

    Yep. That means that they have been pollinated successfully.
