Sunny Pitcher Plant

The morning sun lit up the saracennia yesterday.  The greenish-yellow pitchers seemed to glow from within.  

This pitcher plant is growing in an acidic mix of peat and sand, covered in pine needle mulch, in a plastic liner cast inside of a hypertufa planter.  The liner helps keep the alkalinity of the concrete away from the planting medium.  I drilled a hole in the liner midway up the side in order to hold a couple inches of water at the bottom.

The things we do for love...
