    Welcome to the Forum, chuckr. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/biggrin.gif[/img] [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/biggrin.gif[/img]

    I don't have the plant anymore that's why I said (not anymore). In my opinion it is a great catcher. Before having my Dixie Lace, it caught wasps, thousands of ants, and flys in the autumn season.

    you notice this plant replicating so much because the problems were not ironed out throughout propagation, and as a reuslt it isn't growing correctly. True enough it has rubra in it and wants to replicate growth points, but the media was incorrect and as a cultivar all of these plants are coming out of tissue culture, or were ......

    This plant produces 2 types of pitchers a more laid back or semi decumbant spring pitcher and then a large more erect summer fall pitcher.

    To move the plant along I suggest you seperate the growth points toward the end of dormancy, just prior to season divide the rhizome. Once the plants acclimate you will notice more rapid growth which is what was intended for a tissuce culture plant. While the plants will clump again, not like before they were divided. This is the improper ex-plant growing without division. As a tissue cultured plant the ex-plants were not divided correctly.

    A really pretty smaller plant to about 12" in cultivation and a pretty deep red bloom in April. Butterscotch pitchers are the lower spring ones followed by dark maroon erect larger ones with areoles later in the season,

    Thanks for that Mike. I remember reading on another forum (G*****web [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/biggrin.gif[/img] [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/tounge.gif[/img] ) that Dixie Lace did have problems due to tissue culture issues. I think I even read that it was possible for the plant to die if it was not divided.
    I got hold of a small Dixie Lace yesterday and I can't wait until next spring!
