Recommended Posts

Hi,

Can someone please help me with my sarracenia this year was all repoted into fresh peat and perlite mix at 2/1 and all has flower for me,but about half of them has not sent up eney pitchers at all? All grown outside in a glasshouse year round in full sun.

I am guessing that they have 2 real problems other plants do not, firstly they do not want to risk eating their own pollinators so flowering earlier than pitchers is good, also most plants can get nitrated from the soil as soon as they start to grow, pitchers need to rely on what is stored from last year until the first pitchers can catch more nitrate. If there is flower or seed production, it leaves little nutrient for pitcher growth.
