    I can definitely detect a mild, generic sweet scent from some of my plants. It's hard to tell which, though. I mostly notice it on hot days.

    It depends upon which genera of pitcher plants. Most of my Sarracenia are fairly neutral in terms of odor, while the Heliamphora are often cloying and reminiscent of honey . . .

    I've noticed that if I feed my S. Purpurea a slug or worm, it really starts to stink after a few days.

    Smells earthy - like loam or sod.

    At this time of the year, mine smell like decaying matter. It's pretty rancid, especially the 'Judith Hindle' clones that are filled to the brink with flies, moths, and other goodies. The cool thing is that the smell attracts swarms of green bottle flies and I capture them to feed my mantids.

    Hehe, I didn't even think about that part. Yeah, the way my plants are looking this time of year I don't even really want to look down the pitchers, let alone sniff them. I'm going to clip my oreophila pitchers and bring them to work on Friday for creepy-looking decorations.
