Wow, great pictures! Although I have to say I am surprised Texas is ahead of Southern CA. Usually we are a good 3-4 weeks behind. I already have 3 open flowers and I have tons of pitchers that are about a week from maturity.
I can't wait until i have some Sarracenia that are mature enough to flower/

Nice ones Fred and my D. filiformis var. tracyi grow slower than the filiformis var. filiformis but they have bigger leaves way bigger leaves.
Wow! Pretty plants Fred. Please keep posting the progress.
