I've been showing off my indoor collection so much lately that my Sarracenia are starting to get jealous.

My Sarracenia collection is pretty small right now. I lost a couple plants moving across country in the middle of the winter, but I'm very happy with the stuff that survived / I've gotten since.

First off, here's a shot of the whole shabang as of this posting: The trays are concrete mixing tubs I got at Orchard Supply hardware. Everyone is in 50:50 peat to perlite with a top dressing of epoxy coated pea gravel. The tap water here is 50-100ppm depending on the time of year, so I test and dilute with RO water as necessary. Neem oil and dilute orchid fertilizer as foliar sprays probably less frequently than I could.

My local orchid guys are trying their hand at the carnivore thing. They've got some monstrous N. x miranda and a few Sarracenia mutts. This one spoke to me and begged me to take it home :)

Cute huh? Definitely some purp in it. To me it looks a little like catesbeai, but alas we'll never know.

Epic alata! And that hybrid might be an ((alata x flava) x purprea) x purpurea... just a guess.
