    Weird weird purpurea growth!

    My Sarracenia purpurea has a really weird pitcher thing going on! Check it out:



    This thing is shaped just like a pitcher of a different species, but on a stalk! And there are more coming up! What's the deal? oAo

    (also sorry I've disappeared--all my CPs but my Dana's Delight and my purp are dead ;A; So I kind of lost interest in the forum.)

    Sweet! None of my purps have done that yet.

    Huh, that would make sense--it is early in the growing season after all.

    I'd keep an eye on it! If it continues doing that on a regular basis, you may have the beginning of an exciting new cultivar.
