Let’s get this out of the way first…I’ve gotta say, Sarracenias have some of the coolest flowers. I remember seeing my first ones ever at the California Carnivores.
To our amazement, we got our American Pitcher Plant to finally flower…some sort of Sarracenia species. Man, these guys had a stressful summer. We used to kept them outside, and they were doing pretty well until it stopped raining last Aprilish.
We’ve all been there. So the time came to make a decision. Either it needs a Ton o’ TLC, or you flip it into the compost bin. Well, we took a chance and decided to give it another chance.
We brought it inside (they seem to do just fine indoors in our west facing window), and nursed it back to health. New leaves kept forming, and we would prune off the dead stuff. Here’s a pick of the overall view of the plant as seen today. Man, they look cool. The only odd thing about the whole flowering thing is that…I thought that they are supposed to flower in the spring. LOL…these guys are still dizzy from their near death experience.
