Sarracenias in the Rain

We’ve been having some really weird June weather here.  In fact, it has been the wettest June of record since 1849.  We’ve had more rain than January! (It’s been quite a dry January for us…) What is going on?!   Anyway, today after I got home, the rain lightened up a little bit enough for me to get out and get a few snapshots of the Sarracenia.  Enjoy!

Hey, at least I didn’t have to water the plants today! :) Stay dry everyone!

    I would love to try growing a carnivorous plant…where would I find one in the Northern New York area….I could start with a Venus flytrap, but I remember the children trying to grow them…it was not ever a successful venture….
    These pictures are soooooo beautiful~

    • Hi Betty! Thanks for checkin’ out the site and for your kind words. Yes, there are many people that grow carnivores in that area. Check out some of the links I list here on the blog for good information on carnivores. Also, check out http://necps.org/ – the New England Carnivorous Plant Society. A lot of good information on there. Feel free to contact me if you have any questions as well! :) Cheers! -Rob

  2. I am beginning to think you and I have very similar tastes in Sarracenia….those dark flava hybrids, the white tops inherited from leucophylla, the dramatic markings and the antho-free clones. And so exquisitely photographed as well. Kudos all ’round!

    • Thanks Paul! You have some amazing, and STUNNING photographs too! I love these types of Sarracenia that you mentioned, and pretty much anything interesting looking! I look forward to seeing more on your site, and thanks for your kind words as well! :) Happy Growing!
