    I live near Chicago so it is always a bit windy around my house. Not like Hurricane force winds or anything, but I have my pitcher plant outside and it blows around a lot. It's not real violent or anything [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/wink.gif[/img] I was just wondering if I should put something around it so it doesn't blow around so much? Will the wind damage the plant? or are they used to this? I just wanted to be sure [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img]

    It might knock a pitcher over but usually they rebound. I have my Sarrs on my patio and they have taken microburst storms with little damage

    I had the wind knock over a beautiful leucophylla pitcher [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/mad.gif[/img]
    I now have all the tall pitchers very loosely tied with rope just so they don't blow over.

    I am not worried about it falling, just the pitchers themselves whipping around [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img]
