    My first sarracenia flower--pollen?

    My sarracenia alata var alata put out a flower (first one!) and I'd love to cross pollinate it. I only have one flower so nothing to cross it with. Hate to ask, but anyone have any extra pollen out there--would be up for almost anything!

    Your Sarracenia is flowering in November, in Illinois Am I missing something? If this is true, then you are going to be hard pressed to find pollen.

    They bloom in the fall due to heat stress.. It can be pollinated with its own pollen.. But your not going to find any other pollen this time of year.

    possible to find flowers just depends on how far south you need to go. Let me go home and check

    In NW Florida sometimes sarrs have flowers in the fall, saw one last week actually, but they normally don't have time to mature before the cold sets in, indoors might be different though.
