    Sarracenia flower in August?!

    I'm no botanist but I'm pretty sure Sarrs arent suppose to flower in the fall...



    So should I cut it off or let it do it's thing? I figure the plant has already invested the energy to making the flower (unlike Neps) so should I let it flower or cut it off?

    Let's take votes: Yay or Nay

    I'm passing information that I got from Aidan: Late flowers may leave the plant vulnerable to botrytis. This is not scientific fact, just someone's opinion. Having said that, Aidan is quite the accomplished grower, so I take his advice based on his success at growing sarras.

    You can let it flower, but when it's done, trim it off.
