    Wow! My Sarracenia has opened its first trap. I believe it is a Sarracenia minor, because its very small. It is starting to get yellow coloration at the top, so maybe its a flava. Anyway I was wondering how long the trap will continue to grow in size after it opens. Right now it is maybe 6-9 inches tall, and the mouth is maybe 1/2" wide.

    When I say small- I mean that the size of the traps as they are maturing is much smaller than the other Sarrecnias I have with traps in the same stage of development.

    When traps on my sarrs open, they get maybe about 5 percent bigger, and I think that is just growing into their 'shape'. Once they are open, it's done.
