    Just got a young one....Thanks to my (for now) anonymous benefactor! It's not really picture worthy just yet, as it's first pitcher since the trip through the mail is just starting to mature....Should be open in a few days....If I remember (i.e. my daughter doesn't keep me busy), I'll snap a shot or two.

    Thanks for the links, I have been living there lately, lol! I was hoping to see some new pinups to lust over. Also been to Mike Kings spectacular site (mad as a hatter, obviously). These plants have me sockless this season, every time I blink there is another spectacular clone smiling at me. I can see where you could really go over the edge, like Mike King has....I should quit now, while there is still hope!! I have been dividing up the backyard mentally.....the way I see it, I don't really have a lawn just weeds I mow, and you don't have to mow a bog, right?

    It is such an incredible thing for me to see these plants all for the first time thanks to several benefactors who have graced me with cuttings, and I gotta say thanks again! I am really looking forward to the time when I can divide and share in turn and I can see where Sarracenia are definitely a Gentleman's plant, since there is so much delight in sharing them. They hybridize so easily that individual plants are like oil paintings created by artists selecting from a palate of color, and the variations are endless. This is a Kingly CP genus.

    Now where is my shovel?

    Actually, I have a series of wooden staging planned for the future that will hold those concrete mixing tubs which I use to grow in to fine effect. The black plastic heats up in the sun, and the plants appreciate the warmth.

    These are going to be interconnected so I can flush them or drain them after rains. I have found minibogs not well constructed can come to problems after a few years, and this will allow for more control on my part I think. I like the look of a natural bog, but am not confident I could replicate it as needed.

    Now if I could only figure out how to get rid of the blue beetle wasps all would be well. I thought the winter killed the nest, but they have found my plants again. I have stuffed many of the pitcher mouths with cotton, but the insects actually force they way beyond the cotton to get inside the pitcher. Fools! Muhahahaha!

    Ok. Enough of my raphsodizing. I am going out to look at them again. See ya!

    Maybe we can get sarracenia obsessed to post his moorei pics. Besides the fantastic Leah Wilkerson clone, Brooks must have the most extensive moorei collection I know of. And the color forms are so diverse, you won't believe them all to be moorei. Wonderful hybrid!! Schloaty just might share the white top moorei I sent him. It is from Avalon Beach, Santa Rosa County, Florida. Nice clone!
