    For me it has been a pretty even race for all my Sars. The Judith Hindles were the first with a fully open pitcher, with oreophilla, purpurea and wrigleyana also opening within a day or 2 of that. My small flava have a couple new pitchers about 3 inch tall that opened about 2 days ago and another in that pot has one thats 4 inch tall thats not even close to looking ready to open yet. The slowest is my leuco reds which I suspect are the slowest to open because they are going to be the tallest. I have 9 inch tall pitcher shoots on those that still look a long way from opening. Strangely enough I have not one single flower in the lot This is a little disheartening as I was very anxious to see firsthand the beautiful flowers that so far I have only seen in pictures.

    34 for me

    Best of all is 3 buds on my leucophylla. Should be able to make some nice hybrids with that.

    Pond Boy, I have 123 sarracenia. Out of all of these, 84 blooms, and I have discovered 6 more possible buds. I intend to give some seed away, and grow out the rest for giveaways. I will not be giving out any oreophila seed or plants for at least three years for reasons of my own. However, S.r. alabamensis, Chilton County, Thorsby, Alabama, has 6 blooms on three rhizomes. I will be giving out at least half the seed. Same with jonesii from Etowah, North Carolina, Henderson County. That bog is now a golf course and very extinct. BUT, I have their babies in seed. I will be very sparing on those as I want to add to the collection at least 10 more jonesii. Pond Man! Want some s. flava var. atropurpurea seed? Should have that and var. rugelii, with rugelii in large quantity, atro in less. My favorite time of year!! Bagging flower heads, and cross pollinating my "pure" forms. Will have plenty of s X moorei seed too, and some various alata seed too. I will let everyone know when the feeding frenzy will begin. I should make up a growlist, but I hate writing!! Leuco's too! And red tubes from three different places in seed form. I'M RICH!! (In seed.)
