More Sunlight = More Red

Filed under: Uncategorized — Andrew Kimoto @ 9:22 am

One advantage of our home remodel (that resulted in the death of my outdoor CP’s) is more sunlight in the back yard.  In the past, there was an enormous cypress tree in the back which gave us shade most of the day.  This tree was removed as part of the remodel.  Without that tree, the back yard has almost full sun all day.

My current Dionaea has strong red coloration inside the traps, and this coloration is now extending down the petioles as the summer progresses.

Similarly, my mystery Sarracenia is getting some nice red coloration to the pitchers.  At this point it almost reminds me of my old Sarracenia x ‘Dixie Lace’.

I will get some pictures up as soon as possible.
