Sarracenia's New Pitcher TubeWednesday, September 02, 2009
Sarracenia grows in the strangest way. The new pitcher tube grows not only twice the height of the old ones but the lid opens up in an interesting manner.
Take note of the top... it has not opened yet.
As it grows, the top will open up like this...
Then, the lid and collar will be formed.
And new shoots will keep growing from the centre...
I hope that you would find this plant as interesting as I do. Happy gardening :-)
