Stranger Sarracenia

Inspired by the Netflix original series – Stranger Things.
Because I like strange plants.
This is dedicated to all of the the stranger Sarracenia.

Here are some of the freaks.
You might even find some of these growing in the Upside Down…
feasting on Demadogs.

Stay strange.

Sarracenia “Smurf”

Sarracenia “Smurf” at season’s end. Still a freak in dormancy.

Sarracenia leucophylla ‘Bris’

Sarracenia flava lidless seedling

Sarracenia flava. var ornata – lidless

Sarracenia flava var. rubricorpora – lidless

Sarracenia flava – lidless splotch throat

… And then there is this beyond-strange flavaesque thing SO freaky even Demagorgons stay away.
Perhaps one of the strangest Sarracenia I’ve seen so far.

So strange.

Yes. It is functional and catches prey. The pitchers are generally very open  (as you can see) then twists shut approaching the base. This completes the weird pitcher formation. Here we have a digested fly in one of the pitchers. There are smaller insects at the base that the plant is feasting on.

And this is where we must leave off for now. With all this strange-ness in the Sarracenia gene pool, I wonder what other strange creatures may appear in future seasons?

Stay tuned for Stranger Sarracenia – Season 2. 🙂
