    I noticed you cut back all of the leaves and left the flowering stalk. Why? Should I be doing this if my Sarracenia has put up a flower stalk and it's starting to bulge out a little?

    You'll notice most of the cut back leaves are dead leaves from last season. There is really no reason to cut off a perfectly good, still green and functioning pitcher.
    Everything has a reason, whether big or small. Never underestimate the power of what is or is not.
    There is far more to everything than meets the eye.

    So far I have buds emerging on S. flava var. flava; alata Tyler Co, TX; leucophylla Garcon Point C; 'Matoaka', and strangely minor var. okeefenokeensis Ware Co, GA Clone X. Okay, that last one came in from California, so it's ahead of everyone else.

    Should I be cutting the dead leaves off as it happens or only during a certain time of the season?
