    S.Purpurea is freaking out :(

    Why is it making all these deformed pitchers!



    Ignore the dormancy ones from last year.

    Could it have something to do with a current fungus attack?

    In my experience, which for sarracenia needs to be taken with a grain of salt, the first few pitchers of the season are almost always a bit wonky, and aren't anything to be concerned over. I would advise to just wait, and see if they even out. If you're really concerned, you could try a preliminary treatment of Neem Oil, and see if that does anything.

    Yeah, I have to agree and just wait and see what happens... my sarracenias make small pitchers from time to time especially in the beginning of the year.


    In addition to growing plants, I design and build RC planes powered by Tesla batteries. Check out my progress at www.chargedplanes.com

    A sudden change from one growing condition to another will cause the plant to freak out and not produce proper pitchers for a while. This may be from dormant to growing conditions, humidity changes, or lighting changes. Mine go through something like this every year, for about 2 months, then start growing more and more normal pitchers.
    Everything has a reason, whether big or small. Never underestimate the power of what is or is not.

    If I understand what you are asking us to look at it looks like you're talking a whole separate growth point off of your mother plant. Nothing wrong with the plant, it's just growing.

    oh alright.
    I thought it was having some kind of negative response to something.
