    N. Lorraine is my fave! All gorgeous plants. Seems you may have a "weed" problem in your Sarracenia ;-)

    Yeah, Lorraine is a stunner; I think that pitcher is actually starting to show intermediate traits, as the plant has started vining.

    I got a few binata root cuttings, didn't expect for all of them to take and go crazy. Even had a bad caterpillar attack where they ate the tops off almost all of them... well, the tops all fell down into the medium... and now babies are coming up everywhere... nature finds a way!

    Very nice sarrs! Do you winter them in the fridge or does it get cold enough where you are? I haven't had much success growing them myself, so I'd be curious to know

    This is why 'Lorraine' is one of my favorite man-made hybrids! It's so freakin pretty!.

    Thanks, I've only really gotten into sarrs this year, but I've been told they will be just fine where I'm at (gets into the upper 50s at night in the winter). I've had a Scarlet Belle sarracenia for years and that has never had a problem, but that was my only one. They sure do love the full summer sun though!

    I was so close to picking up another when I was at ******* yesterday, but there are just sooooo many other amazing plants there.

    Getting bleached out by the sun can actually look really nice! Reminds me of alba uppers, but it's just a plain old Ventricosa upper pitcher grown in full sun.

    I almost picked up another one at the NECPS plant show, too. Went for a 'Terpsichore' instead.
