    looks good! You have anything else flowering to cross it with, or are you going to try to self it?

    Nice plant, but you may want to consider removing those sedges or they will choke your sarra to death.

    Just yank it up and make sure to get its roots. Twist while pulling. Though I do think that some might be able to go unnoticed and survive... many methods for controlling plants can harm the sarracenia too.

    Sarrs are designed to prevent self pollination... so if you want flowers, you either have to have other sarrs around or pollenate it by hand. If you look inside of the flower, there should be a group of yellow-orange anthers. This is the male part. You should be able to see the pollen collecting in a large, almost umbrella shaped structure.... this is the female part. The receptive stigmatic surface is almost like a hook pointing down. To pollinate the plant, you must transfer the pollen from the male part to the female part.
