    Bad Dormancy / Slow Start

    Half the VFT's & Sarracenias died but those that survived, the pitcher plants are sending up their first pitcher plants of the season:

    S. leucophylla?

    S. Dana's Delight

    S. rubra flower

    S. Love Bug

    S. mitchelliana

    S. Scarlett Belle

    'Spade'

    I'm not sure what these are anymore:

    Wow you lost HALF? That stinks. What happened? Too cold? Some of mine were slow to start as well. I started the Flavas and VFTs indoors but the others went outside and are taking their sweet time.

    Here's some Flavas (shot last week):

    Tom, they look great!

    I live in an apartment with no basement or attic. For the previous 2 winters I had them in a co-worker's garage. They did well there. But then he said he couldn't do it this year and I had to scramble to find housing. You'd be amazed how many have "crawl spaces" as opposed to real attics. I did come up with another co-worker. He had a second floor apartment that was going to be left unheated and unoccupied. I took it. Unfortunatley, it wasn't cold enough and I could tell that it wasn't watered enough.

    RATS! Well my attic is way too cold so in the fridge they go every year. What about your Cobras? Did they make it?

    Ahhh, what a guy! Good for you. My Sarr. collection is small or I'd send you a few. I may have a spare Purpurea next year and maybe a Flava. I should have lots of Scorpioides gemmae this winter too.

    I could always use D. scorpiodes. They start off fibe for me and then go into a funk in the summer. Some then just die.
