First time posting here for a while, will post some pictures soon..
I have a collection of sarracenia which are all starting to flower nicely now - one of my favourites ( x. melanarhoda) is pushing up 3 juicy flowers, but no pitcher action yet.
I am wondering if it is worth clipping of a flower or two on plants that are doing this to allow pitchers to grow more quickly - I understand that flowering significantly drains the resources of Venus flytraps, but not so much with sarrs... do I really need multiple flowers?
Also, I've read that its not advisable to spray Sarracenia's when in flower.. but do they really need spraying that often otherwise?
Any advice much appreciated
