    Hi Brooks,
    I have certainly made the mistake of using too heavy a dose of Orthene on Sarracenia: and the result is deformed/distorted pitchers. The plant eventually grows out of it. We have gone back to the more expensive and labor intensive use of topical sprays, namely Talstar. It really works on all pests from those pesky submarine mealybugs that attack the roots to thrips and spider mites.
    How are the saved rubras from Crestview doing? Michelle and I were there in April to see the purp venosas in bloom right next to that location, but they were under several feet of dirt and new homes. (not that it makes any diff anymore, but the purps grew in a bog on the west side of the creek that runs north-south to the west of the rubras).

    Trent,
    Tell me about this Telstar. I can get commercial pesticides and that sounds like one of them. What do you mean by expensive and labor intensive? I just spent $58 bucks on a quart of Cleary3336 and I didn't think that was bad.

    I did not keep any of the Crestview rubras for myself unfortunatly. it seems that whole Crestview area is under major development. It is sad the hear. I wish someone could rescue more but there is only so much we can do.

    Now, back to my friendly feud with PDX.

    I see you a Tyler, Texas Alata and raise you a green and white wrig.





    Now, there is no cheating here. These are all recent pics taken within the past week.

    Mr. Obsessed,

    Once again - mighty fine plants. That's a particularly nice alata. Today's favorites are a "Mardi Gras" and a Leuco. x Courtii "Northern Pink". The NP is pretty funny looking - it looks like a big dinosaur head.

    This is the "Rock 'Em Sock 'Em Robots" of sarracenia! The duel of the century! One minute PDX is ahead, the next Brooks comes out swinging and edges out by a nose. lol

    You both have some spectacular plants! Oh my! Hard to judge who's "ahead". You're all ahead of me! If my Schnell's Ghost new pitcher photo comes out (doubtful), I'll post it but its not on the level of you guys!

    Ok...Brooks...you gotta step up to the plate here. Don't leave PDX with the last word. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_m_32.gif[/img]

    C'mon PAK - post a few photos. I myself can't see enough photos of sarracenia! I've thought about starting a thread of "Ugliest" plants - quite a few are looking natty now.

    Brooks is probably out scouring the nurseries for a couple new entries today! [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile.gif[/img]

    I'm waiting for his next move - I've still got a few more plants to post [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_m_32.gif[/img]

    P.S. - This is all in fun, everybody join in!!

    I WILL NOT be out done!

    Brain Fart Brooks left the camera at home with all the recent photos to finish this feud with so I am going to resort to pics taken earlier this season.

    I see you a "Adrine Slack Imposter" and raise you a "Wilkerson's Red."
