    Maybe.... I don't have many things that are dividing though, just the common ones: Daina's delight, x readii (it is the dark one though), alata, etc.

    Things are finally waking up!
    S. flava atropurpurea x ornata is probably the furthest along

    But others aren't far behind: S. flava rugelii x oreo

    S. oreo and flower bud

    S. x swaniana flower buds

    And 'Scarlet Belle' always has early flowers


    Open pitchers and flowers are probably still a month away, and due to cold night temps and occasional snow (like tomorrow) I'm still shuffling them inside and outside every day, but spring is on its way.

    So, now that I've had a couple stretches of multiple days with nights above freezing, things have begun to actually grow......
    As always, the first plant to fully wake up: S. oreophila Meadowview


    Since these pics were taken, the plant has sent up a developing pitcher that will likely exceed 2 feet in height, and the main flower has fully opened and been pollinated, with 3 more on the way. And, currently, my last count gave me somewhere around 8 or so growth points among 3 plants.

    New flower! S. 'Scarlet Belle'

    There are a few more plants yet to bloom, like x swaniana, rubra alabamensis and jonesii viridescens, and pitchers are opening up on a few more plants now. I give it a month before everything is in full swing though.......

    Not everything pictured I can take credit for, but the season is starting to warm up finally, and the new arrivals still look great:
    Seed-grown (x courtii x rubra alabamensis) x 'Candy Striper', showing a lot of courtii influence

    flava cuprea

    alata rubrioperculata

    leuco 'Tarnok' dreams of being a Heliamphora

    flava rubricorpora L x Best clone, Liberty Co. This plant has just gotten darker as time goes by, but the lid has stayed bright yellow


    flava atropurpurea is not fully colored, but it's still great looking

    leuco Baldwin Co. AL starting to show size and shape variation

    New arrival, S. (rubra x oreophila) x purp burkii, since the last one did not survive the winter. This specimen appears far superior, though


    Not a Sarr, but a nice companion plant: Viola lanceolata

    S. 'Snake Bite'

    alata Van Cleave, MS

    'Judith Hindle'


    Always the best looking in the pool, oreophila Meadowview. Look at those veins!

    Had a hail storm a couple weeks ago, but only one pitcher out of the entire pool seemed to get hit. Just my luck: it was the only good pitcher on my new flava rugelii A x B

    Meanwhile, good pitchers are opening on the (leucophylla x flava) x leucophylla, and the veins are stunning


    And, the first pitcher formed in my care on flava rubricorpora L x Best Clone. Even after being shipped and then potted up, the new pitcher turned solid red
