    Very nice. If you post another set of pictures in the future please post another of your oreophila x purpurea pitcher. I'd like to see one fully open.

    you know, i've never changed the media. i've always used a peat/perlite mixture, although i switched to peat/sand this year, and will probably stick with the sand from now on. i've never noticed any rot, although i do keep my tubs on the dry side of things. i think they can take dryness more than people give 'em credit for. the only time they are ever waterlogged is when we get like a 2-3 inch rain, which only happens a few times a year. i let them dry out between waterings, probably to the point where I would call it damp, where the peat will crumble if you pick it up. my RO only puts out a couple of gallons/day, so I'd be filling jugs all the time if I tried to keep them wet. i probably should change the media, though, in some of the older tubs, i think my oldest is like 5-6 years old now. I tested my RO water a few weeks ago (i happen to work in a water quality lab) for dissolved solids using the evaporation method - weigh a dish, put 100 mL of water in it, evaporate it, weigh the dish again - and got 12 mg/L of dissolved solids. I did our tap water too, hoping I could maybe use that, but i got 200 mg/L.

    Here's a pic of that orephila x purpurea, 2 weeks later, as well as several others I took today.


    oreophila x purpurea



    an unknown hybrid, about to open. I personally think Sarracenia can look pretty cool right before they open.



    Evidence that Sarracenia can self-pollinate themselves. This is from an open-pollinated, antho-free leucophylla x jonesii.



    an open-pollinated alata x flava


    an open-pollinated 'Boob Tube'. This one reminds me of a goblin for some reason.


    Another instance of probable self-pollination. This is a newly-opened 'Ladies In Waiting'



    And this is a newly-opened open-pollinated 'Ladies In Waiting', at 2.5 years old.



    'Love Bug'



    A leucophylla x minor seedling showing some good coloration



    purpurea x jonesii - antho-free


    readii x (catesbaei x flava)


    'Red Sumatra'


    'Tapestry'
