I got my first sarra today, didn't really intend to get one. I have done all my research on VFTs and when I saw these and saw that they like full sun also, I figured I would get one of each. So now I have a plant that I didn't do any prior research on, and I kinda feel bad. I just want to give it everything it needs
I did a search and found some of the information I needed, just have a couple questions.
1. Do not fill the pitchers right?? I read on a couple of web sites that you should fill the pitchers...but everything I have read here says NO. So please just looking for verification on that.
2. These were in full shade in the nursery. Should I get them used to full sun by only giving them a couple of hours at first, or just put them out all day tomorrow in full sun?
3. Can you guess what species my sarracenia is? I see so many different types (flava, rubra, purpurea, etc.) and each has it's own coloration and size. If you can guess, can you tell me the size of pitchers I can expect and about its growth (or where to find it). I read some of the sarracenia species climb trellis' or hang out of pots. Just wondering.
Here is a picture:
I will post a better picture tomorrow!
