    First Sarracenias!!!

    I am really excited. I am not a noob at carnivorous plants, but so far I have only had tropical varieties. Well, since my wife and I are buying our first house I can now get temperate varieties! We close on 10/23, but I felt it was appropriate to buy some Sarracenias prior to buying furniture

    So, here they are. I have one Sarracenia leucopyhlla 'Tarnok' and one Sarracenia readii x moorei 'Big Red'

    Thanks to Andy at flytrapshop.com! I measured both and they are over a foot tall. Not too shabby for my first North American pitcher plants. I planted them in a peat/perlite mix and have the lower portion of the rhizome buried but the growth points are above soil.

    Hey! You said you were "finally in a the position where I can give them full sun" nothing about a new house! CONGRATS!! Looks like the plants made the trip pretty well- like I said, most of those pitchers are from spring (READ: February) and some fall growth is just starting, hopefully they keep up that fall growth for you if it is not too cold there.

    Yeah, we are pretty excited! Perfect time to get in on one with the tax credit and rock bottom interest rates. Hopefully they will continue the fall growth. I live in San Antonio and we'll be in the 80s for awhile.
