This will be my thread for the progress of my Sarracenias and such. Some of you might remember I posted this pic asking for help if I should repot the S. rubra gulfensis in the back left. I gave it a "hair cut" instead per everyone's recomendations.

I got this purpurea from a Lowe's cube. They're doing much better now.

My titan putting out its first pitcher.
Sarracenia flava copper top new leaf by Thagirion3, on Flickr
But this was the first pitcher of the year. I love all flavas. They are my faves.
Spider robs small Sarracenia by Thagirion3, on Flickr
The little pitcher has a naughty spider in it that steals the bugs from the pitcher. He waits for bugs to come by then catches them.

Flava opened against a pretty pointsettia. In March btw.

Took the rest of these today. The back right is my titan. It's not even open yet and already it's taller than my flava. And the rubra gulfensis in the front left is putting out four flower buds. This is my second bog tray btw. I ran out of room because I got three new pots of flytraps. But now both trays have lots of room and the black one will be for small pots.
First Dana's delight pitcher of 2012 by Thagirion3, on Flickr
This Dana's Delight is my first Sarracenia. I don't get into too many hybrids but I can't pass up seeing CP's locally in stores. There's just something magical about it and so nice from boring ordinary plants. No shipping no waiting just grabbed it from a local pond store. Was in the marginal plants section.
Sarracenia flava copper top? by Thagirion3, on Flickr
This plant was sold to me as a flava copper top. But it doesn't have copper tops. Can anyone ID for me? I'm disapointed if I was lied to, but it's my first flava so I still love it. Did I mention Flavas are my favorites?
Sarracenia rubra gulfensis by Thagirion3, on Flickr
Lastly, my rubra gulfensis green. Perhaps I should have repoted and divided. Too late now. Four flowers coming up. So pretty. I can't wait. I've never had a flower before. And it looks like possibly there are now four plants in here. I hate all the grass that moved in. You can't yank it out either. It's in good. So that's it for now. Stuff's growing really fast out there. I love it.
