    Mass decapitations

    Having served their purpose (looking pretty), most sarracenia flowers are unceremoniously decapitated and throw in the trash. (It's about halfway full).

    Those are flowers that were not selectively pollinated. There's still quite a few left on the plants. Besides, all the flowers take up space and cause pitchers to grow offsided and sometimes deformed.

    Unfortunately no. We have dogs and they like the smell of the compost heap too. :P

    Do people typically remove the flowers? I just got my sarr flowers ever this year so I don't really know what to do with them.

    I made a match for each one, and those that I forget, well, I hear that honeybees are pretty good hybridizers. LOL! It's hardly a scientific thing over here!
