You just had to post this to get on my nerves, didn't you?
S. rubra gulfensis
S. alata "Maroon Throat"
S. rosea (S. purpurea venosa burkii). Broke the flower while taking pic. Argh. might be for the best it is only been in the pot for about a year for me
Got this one as S. purpurea venosa but give the color of the umbrella I have my doubts. However, very different from the S. rosea in terms of flower stalk length. seems S. rosea typically makes short ones and the other S. purpurea make long ones. Maybe hybrid?
S. leucophylla 'Tarnok'
S. flava x ?
S. 'Dana's Delight'
S. leucophylla Hurricane Creek, Alabama. Last year germinated a bunch of seeds and kept a bunch indoors to get them to grow two seasons in one. Starting to put up some mature pitchers. I am seeing a fair amount of variation. I suppose I will one day need to make a numbering/coding system for these seedlings.

That red and white is really something!
Great pics. It's so foreign to me to see them so far along this early, it's still cold and snowy here.
I am extremely jealous! All I have is, well, snow!
That S. flava hybrid is REALLY nice!

Everything is so spectacular for you, Mach!
Just so awesome and lovely!!
It has not been a problem so far. Even the temperate Drosera go dormant for me when it is time. I am not entirely sure that it is 100% dependent on temperature. i am guessing that photoperiod has a large effect. We tend to have shorter days that most people in Hawaii because in the morning we are in the shadow of the mountain we live on and in the evening we are in the shadow of the mountains to the west of us.
It might be a problem for some of the further north populations of Sarracenia, Drosera and Pinguicula. Oddly S. purpurea purpurea does fine for me. just doesn't have a long growing season. i think it is hardwired in how long it will grow, make new pitchers and then stop to deal with northern climates .
