i bough myself a trumpet pitcher plant (with a sneaky bonus venus fly trap that wasn’t meant to be there!) and went to check on it yesterday & one of the pitchers was full of flies! simultaneously amazing & horrifying. this morning i checked on it again & there was a cockroach added to the mix. um, the point is that it was valentine’s day & i had dressed like i was going to a funeral (and was conflicted about dressing ‘cute’ not tuff) & i was like, fuck! valentines! luring & trapping! funerals! BLACK WIDOW. black widow looks 2014!
The unopened bud and beautiful flower of a Sarracenia x readii “Alabama Red” pitcher plant. This plant is a natural hybrid–it’s amazing to think such beautiful plants grow wild across parts of America!
