    all of my current sarr.

    this is the best i can offer my saracenia I now live right at the base of a mini mountain , north side, the sun goes down at about 4pm and the only way I could get full sun would be to put them right at he road in front of the house, the road is fairly well traveled so i am also concerned about theft, if i put them so close to the road they would draw too much attention . so her's what I'm able to do at this time, they do seem to be coming along fairly well. but some just aren't going to color up for me.

    It looks like you are having some mild aphid caused deformations. Alot of my pitchers showed the same thing this spring. I used a systemic insecticide on them which was worked very well but needs reapplied monthly to keep them from coming back. I have never actually seen any aphids on my plants but get alot of the mishapen pitchers early in the growing season indicative of the damage they cause.

    I used Bayer Advanced Rose and Flower Insect Killer. Got it at Lowes. One caveat that isnt on the label is that imidacloprid (one of thethe active ingredients) is highly toxic to bees. I waited until the flowers were spent and pulled all the petals before applying. Apparently one bee can take the pollen from the flower of one treated plant and affect the whole hive.
