Still Decent

It’s been a while since I’ve updated the blog, I know. Things have been good, but pretty busy as of late. I was out doing some work in the greenhouse yesterday and wanted to share photos of some plants that still had some decent looking foliage. During winter, I tend to start to focus on growing other plants now that the Sarracenia are pretty much asleep. I’ll start to focus on things like Nepenthes, Cephalotus, maybe some Drosera as well. And now I’m toying a little bit with Heliamphora. (Like, OMG, Heli’s are SO RAD!) You already know I’ll be updating the blog with photos of these other plants throughout the winter. Hey, you know I gotta keep growing.

Anyway, back to the Sarracenia… I find the crispy old foliage makes for an interesting juxtaposition in the photo. I’ll be going through slicing the old foliage down soon. For now, enjoy a few of the photos!

  1. Looking a lot better than everything in my GH
    That first Moorei hybrid looks really good!

    • Thanks so much Dan! With the move and late onslaught of light with the plants they’ve put up pitchers rather late in the season – what you see now are mostly remnants and they’ll all soon be fading as well. Quite a few of the leucos still look good tho! 🙂

  2. I wonder how long it takes Sarracenia to come out of dormancy. I pulled mine out of a cold bathroom about two weeks ago and so far nothing. I’m worried it’s dead.

    • Hi There! It depends, sometimes it can take a couple weeks. Once it warms up they’ll start to wake up. Is the rhizome/root mushy or is there still some green/white? Feel free to send photos to me at rob (at) thepitcherplantproject (dot) com. Thanks!
