I have didived my collection in two zones. A "mostly low sarracenia container", involving purpureas, psittacinas and minor except okeefinokeensis. And another one with "mostly tall Sarracenias"; flavas, leucos, alata, and their hybrids. I have to say that in this container there is a purp and a S. X scarlet belle. There is no room enought for them in the "low sarracenias container".
There are more Sarracenias, potted in other winthows.
I grow my collection in my "windowsills". But not a "windowsill" like in England... those are OUTSIDE, not inside the house. (Actually I live in a flat) I don´t know if you people have another name for this "outside windowsill". Actually, in Spain there are no windowsill like in England: almost all of them are outside.
As i was telling, I live in a flat. I don´t have a garden so I don´t have the chance of having a greenhouse to make the plants grow earlier. Plants are completely outside, at climate weather mercy. I only can grow them in the windows, ouside. Those windows have SSE orientation, so if I am luky and sun is shining, plants can get arround 7 / 8 hours of sun per day.
I have separated my collection (roughtly) in hight and low sarracenias because of lighting isues. So I assure that tall sarrs don´t shadow the low ones.
I have some dirty pics for you. Don´t expetc the beautifull pics usually seen in this forum. I have many plants, and not enought room, so plants are too close together (in autum is a mess). Plants are on the windows, so is difficult for me to take good pictures of them. I have to bend myshelf in strange angles to take the pics... and I took this pictures quickly this morning. So some of them may be a little bit blurry.
Well, lets see the low Sarracenia container: I tried to picture the labe in the picture, with the related plant. The last pictures show you the entire grow space for the low Sarras. (There is a Nep and some Droseras too). Mirrors are to reflect the light and redirect again to the plants. Not an only photon can be wasted. Sun here is expensive to see!
Oh, by the way! I know is psittacina with double" t". I don´t know what I was thinking when I made the labels for my plants... also, by Exess, I mean Essex... speaking about plant tracking... :-) Sorry!
