    OMG I wish I had flowers already! I just cut off all the dead pitchers yesterday and no signs of life yet out of any Sarrs.

    Maybe I'm not judging an accurate perspective but those flowers look huge!

    Very nice Sarracenia. I have 3 so far, but all are developing and not open like yours. Dex, I agree, it does look like a gigantor flower.

    LOL! I've been cutting mine off--the ones I don't plan to collect seed from. I do have a s. alata flower that is about to open, however...and a flava cuprea that flowered both spring, summer and fall...but no flowers for 2011 yet

    yes, the D. Colossus flowers are about as large as any I've seen. Next time I visit the greenhouse, i'll take a measurement.
