    Thag's Sarracenia pics

    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.

    But this was the first pitcher of the year. I love all flavas. They are my faves.

    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.

    Thanks. This is my new tray and putting the bigger pots here opened up lots of room in the old one.

    I think your spider needs a swift kick in the thorax!

    Hi Thagirion

    Nice pics BTW. dont give up on your copper top, you may well have been sold teh right plant, they do take a fair bit of sun to colour up so may well do so a bit later in the year.

    Cheers
    Steve
