    Do Sarrs have the same or similar track record of struggle as do VFT's when it comes to flowering in captivity?

    No, not really. They only make one bloom a year and are a bigger plant so I am sure that helps, plus their roots are less sensitive. Watch out though, some smell like cat urin.

    how do you pollinate the flowers of s. purpurea, and s. leucophllya? I have one s. purp flower open right now and of course, my savage garden book is on loan.

    Oh, boy! One thing I learned a long time ago, never loan out your books, you may never see it again.

    Larger sarracenia can grow numurous flowers - S. rubra often grows one per growth point, so you get plenty. Unlike VFTs, its no problem letting them flower.

    To pollinate, take some pollen from one flower with a paintbrush and put some on the five bumps which are on the edges of the umbrella style on the second flower.

    thanks for all the advice...I know, I lent the book out and needed it the next day...I do see the person at work reading it, so it isn't a big deal.

    sorry, I should have said one per growth point. I consider multipull growth points on sarr to be seporet plants because they function as such.
