    Best way and time to prune Sarracenia.

    I have just pruned the dead of until this spring where I hacked three of my sarracenia flava back (as a bit of an experiment) and all three were really slow to come out of dormancy producing smaller pitchers in comparison to the others that hadn't been cut right back. Although I do find it looks tidier cutting them right back I won't be doing it again. Dan

    If this is the case It would be interesting to know any defining features of the true 'Melissa mazur'?

    One of Ian salters minor var okefenokeensis One of a few nice okee seedlings i did, the cross is MKM5 X M18 Another okee giant from Ian M18 sending up some good sized pitchers! Nice little antho free minor enjoying the morning sun These two psittacina var okefenokeensis are by far the biggest in my collection the second one has the biggest heads i have seen on any psittacina, theyre bordering on golf ball size. I would be interested to see how big other growers psittacina get? Yellow flower form Brought as a gulf coast giant but I suspect some hybridisation as it occasionally produces traps like a courtii Dan

    Flys

    Plenty of flies here too, my poor alabamensis are toppling over through the weight of dead bodies, and the purps smell as beautiful as ever!

    Windowsill growing

    A couple of my helis grown on a windowsill H. Nutans X heterodoxa H. Minor It really is great to see plants growing on windowsills with no special conditions! Dan

    got to be the most effective flytrap in my collection

    They would last long in the wild if they weren't allowed to catch flies. I still find it fascinating to see the leaf curl around a fly. You might as well have an orchid instead if you don't want flies stuck on the leaves hehe
