    I have no idea if there are natural pollinators out here, because I think I'm going to leave mine to their own devices.

    Not in the west coast no. According to Peter D'Amato, the bees don't know how to work the flowers here and our species of bombus are not familiar with sarracenia flowers.

    I don't know whether I buy that explanation, even from D'Amato. During the Sarracenia flowering / growing season, I rarely saw flowers which were not constantly explored and/or visited by bees; and, rather than being "unfamiliar" with some given floral anatomy, pollinating insects are far more commonly driven by phyto-chemical cues or UV "markers."

    Also, some of those ill-advised introductions of Sarracenia to the wild in California saw no difficulty with pollination and even some cross-pollination . . .

    Well, all I know is I haven't seen a single bee/hummingbird visit my Sarrs yet, so I don't know what I'll get. Maybe just random self'd seeds...

    Btw, Brokken: wowsa, nice Sarr garden!
