    The pitchers definitely look like oreophila anyway. I wish my plants were as far on as yours!

    Hey Alvin, they seemed to wake up quite early...I think beginning or middle of February S. flava buds appeared. BTW, what do you make of the red inside of the petals in the flower? There are also satellite areas of red on the tepals and sepals as well, near where the flower is connected to the stalk.

    Thanks

    Nice plant, Dustin! My S. oreophila is much less veined than yours, and is labeled Sand Mountain, clone #2. I have veining only at the throat, and they are largely green otherwise. (I also have the C-shaped phyllodia.) It looks like mine are about three weeks behind yours, having been outside in San Francisco all winter.

    Hey Max,

    Yes, mine woke up really early this year. I already have a full sized S. flava pitcher open and starting to color up. The flava and S. x catesbaie are already out of prime flowering. Where did you obtain your "Sand Mountain" variant out of curiosity. PM me if you wish to.

    I got it from D'Amatos place, Dustin. Incidentally, they have a little booth every weekend at a little "farmer's market" at the Ferry Plaza in San Francisco (kind of a funny name when you think of it). This week they had huge, flowering S. oreophilas for thirty bucks. I almost bought one, but thought better of it. However, I was weak, and bought a young, small hybrid they made which is S. (x willisii) x flava "copper top." It's a really nice plant! And it came with a bunch of U. subdulata in the pot as a bonus! I really shouldn't go visit their booth, as I lack the self control. I REALLY have to avoid going to his actual nursery. In the face of thousands of great CPs, I'm totally powerless.

    You bought that (x willisi) x flava "copper top"? I swear I saw that exact plant at the booth last Sunday, unless there were two. Looked nice, as I recall.

    I know what you mean about California Carnivores - I was up in Santa Rosa a couple of weekends ago and of course "dropped by," and, of course, came away with a large flava and leucophylla. So I'll be the second to admit that I really need to work on this self-control thing.

    Mine are now throwing up flower stalks and an S.x moorei is growing a pitcher. In a month there should be pitchers opening everywhere.
    I've never had a flower on my oreophila but I think the red parts are normal. Sometimes I get streaky petals or odd colours here and there on flowers.
