One of my bog plants has bloomed, it is around 3 inches in size. The rest all have buds on them, and are starting to grow their pitchers.

Very nice one addy! How many different types of the Pitcher plant do you have now? I know you rescued some from death row and wondered if they all made it.

I bought the cobra off ebay from california. Of the pitcher plants it is the hardest to grow and keep alive.
