    Here is a pic taken today of our sarracenia purpura. The sarracenia purpura has grown mant pitchers since waking from its winter dormancy. There are a couple of pitchers which are turning a crispy brown. They are from last summer.

    Lovely and healthy Joy. a very attractive plant.I remember that train trip up the hill in Penang with hubby and 3 kids and pregnant 7 months with no 4 in 1966. I remember at the top the hotel had a big trellis and hanging down all through it was a creeper with green jade flowers looked like a green wisteria,forget its name but what a beautiful sight .

    That would have been some trip, Pixie. :lol3: I was there in 1981 & only vaguely remember the hotel as we weren't taken there. Think we were in rush to get elsewhere, probably the Kek Lok Si temple. :giggle:

    Yes, the sarracenia purpura is looking good. Must repot it one day, but it always has plenty of pitchers & seems quite happy, so maybe it doesn't need it.

    Joy you know how your body lets you know when it need something, like a better diet or a rest or see a doctor .I think plants tell us when something is not right with them by putting out yellow or brown tipped leaves or not growing as they should .We just have to recog :yes: nise the signs.

    Yes, I agree, Pixie. :agreed: There are a couple of large pitchers which have started to turn crispy, but they are old ones from last summer. They went through winter without turning brown, like the others, but now that there are so many new ones it is time for them to die off. The actual pitchers are still ok which is why I haven't removed them. :smile:

    The sarracenia purpura has grown well this summer. It really should be repotted.

    The sarracenia purpura looks to be thriving & has grown back well.

    The sarracenia purpura is now full of new trumpet pitchers. The ones from last summer have finally died off over winter. It did try to grow many flowers early this spring but I removed them & then the new pitchers started to grow.

    The pot of the sarracenia purpura is now completely full of trumpet pitchers. It bounced back from the winter die-off very quickly.

    Thanks, Dawn. The sarracenia purpura has grown even more pitchers as the pot is now really chock-a-block. This plant has lasted so well (touch wood) & we have had it for about five & 1/2 years. It recovers well after each winter. :bravo:

    The new spring trap growth of the sarracenia purpura (Trumpet pitcher plant) amongst the yet to be removed old dead traps from last summer. Must cut them off.

    Another angle - Sarracenia purpura - Trumpet Pitcher plant.
