    Has anyone ever tried to force Sarracenia to flower?

    I am trying an experiment to see if it will work. I am working on the principle that ethylene gas forces some plants to flower.

    I am just burning leaves and allowing the smoke to fill an aquarium. The 50 gallon aquarium is one its side and has a partial glass covering mounted of one side to hold the smoke a little longer.

    A clay water dish is used to burn the leaves. I let the fire go out before putting the dish in the aquarium so the heat will not build up and stew the Sarra.

    Rotting fruit also produces ethylene gas.

    I'm sceptical!

    Good luck though.
