Those flowers are really amazing. Thanks for sharing.

In Florida it is so hot and miserable in the summer that a lot of the plants shut down in the summer. I often get new growth and flowers in the fall and then they shut down around December/January when we get some cold weather. By February they are in bloom again.

We are very dry during the winter, but in the summer we measure our rain by the feet. So my Sarracenia get lots of water, and they are in trays or pools, but even then they get very tired during the peak heat of summer. As soon as our temps drop below 110 heat index, they perk up and look lovely again. A few of the Sarracenia don't care about the heat like the Daina's Delight and Scarlet Belle, which are always lovely. Mine may have shown wear this year, because I didn't get out and weed like I should. With 110 heat index, it isn't safe for people. We have super high humidity. In the morning in the summer we are already at high eighties with heat indexes approaching 95 by 9 AM.

A couple weeks ago I weeded for three hours, and pulled all the stuff out of my pools.

Most people around here think flavas smell like cat pee. :) Rubras smell good.
