Every spring, my Sarracenia put up a bunch of pitchers, but they're always really green and don't show many of the plants' characteristics. My Sarracenia only start to actually look good when fall comes! For example, last year my purp venosa made some really nice red compact pitchers, but this spring it made long, small hooded, lighter coloured pitchers. And my S. x 'scarlett belle' made really tall spindly green pitchers this spring.
Is this normal? I'm convinced that it is not normal, because I've sen enough pictures of Sarrs with gorgeous spring pitchers. I can provide photos if needed.
