    Checked the bog last night for the first time since I got back from CO and I found a bloom coming up on my leucophylla x umlauftiana.

    So... Do I cut it off or let it bloom??

    if it's healthy let it bloom.

    it doesn't take much energy from the plant when it comes to Sarracenia.

    Its August all right! A red s. X areolata just opened in the Citronelle collection, and its gorgeous! FORBES! Where are ya?!?!?!? Need an ace photographer. Bring Noah with you! The New s. alata "nigrapurpurea" leaf is turning red/black and is quite amazing. Citronelle White is sending up yet another leaf, hopefully with the fall pure white coloration. The flavas look like crap! Everyone else is going crazy. I love August! an' September, an' October!

    I kind of get the feeling some of my plants think it's spring all over again. I have an oreophila that just sent up a flush of new pitchers, as well as a bloom. I think moving them from the greenhouse to outside in mid-May screwed many of my plants up. Don't anticipate any problems from it. just an extra long seasonl

    umlauftiana.

    ......what on earth is that? Ive neevr heard of that sarr

    Let it flower, the only flowers I take off from CP's is VFT flowers, every other CP uses very little energy to flower so why not let them? [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_m_32.gif[/img]

    It seems most years there are a few weird late Sarracenia blooms. Mine have always ended up either not opening completely, deforming in some way or not finishing the development of seed.

    Now I just chop 'em off and let the plant use it's energy elsewhere....
    All the best,
