It’s weird to think of flowers as plants’ sex organs, but that’s exactly what they are! Even weirder to think of carnivorous plants (already considered strange, deviant, perverse) having sex organs, but they certainly do!
These Utricularia blanchetii flowers are especially perverse. They’re all like “Woooo, look up my skirt!”
A new “Angry Bunny” flower recently opened on my Utricularia sandersonii. It keeps giving me sideways looks…
The sundews are not far behind in the flower show either! This Drosera nidiformis stalk keeps getting taller! Check out how much it grew! I’m predicting it will open in the next couple of days.
One of my many Drosera spatulas uncurling a cute little red stalk!
Drosera venusta rolled out a low-rider flower stalk off to the left side. I’ve never seen a carnivorous plant flower stalk that didn’t go straight up, or at least attempt to! Very interesting to see this.
In Sarracenia-land, we have lots of flower buds forming, but no open flowers yet! It’s crazy how I went from zero Sarracenia flowers ever to more than I can handle within a year.
Little bud on one of my newest Sarracenia, “Ritchie Bell”.
This one is on my Sarracenia x “readii” division!
Double flowers on one of my Sarracenia x “Hummer’s Hammerhead”s. I actually have TWO Hammerheads with double flowers growing! That’s going to be awesome to see when they bloom!
With its flower bud and two new pitchers on either side, my Judith Hindle x flava var. atropurpurea looks familiar…
Maybe this is what I’m thinking of?
But the star of the flower show is my Sarracenia flava “Cuprea”! This flower is so close to opening, I can taste it! See earlier photos here in this post! I estimate this thing is about 10 to 12 inches tall now.
How are your plants coming along? Got any buds forming, or blooms already opened? Let me know in a comment!
