Another quiet day round home so no startling blip opportunities. However I decided early in the day that I would do a flower shot, and I knew just the flower. Earlier in the year we decided to have a go at growing carnivorous plants and so acquired a couple of Venus Fly Traps and this Sarracenia.
When we bought it it was a tiny little thing with no pitchers more than a couple of inches long. Now they are about a foot (30cm) with this flower another couple of inches or so above that.
Sarracenia are native to Eastern USA and have 8 or 10 natural species. This wasn't labeled when bought and I suspect a hybrid as the flower doesn't match that of the wild varieties. The key to growing Sarracenia is water, lots of it. As one source says a dry Sarracenia is a dead Sarracenia. The water however must be either purified (distilled or deionised) or rain water, anything else will kill them.
