Wow!
Very nice! Do you keep the Psitticina waterlogged alot of the time? Do you think it helps growth at all?

Great to see Sarracenias are being grown in Argentina-the interest in North American Pitcher Plants is truely expanding world wide.

Thanks guys!

Daniel: I try like an experiment... i have seen in a picture that they can reach a biiig size living with a lot of water. And who knows.. may be some day (when they get bigger) i would add some little fish in the "bog" to feed this cutes parrot pitchers! But i also have anothers (individuals) with the tray sistem just with 2cm of water

James: I confuse! That pitcher is anoter S.leucophylla (a darkest one) i repeat... i want a very white leuco but cannot get it!

Meizwang: That because they are awesome!
