The flavas were looking good this morning with the nectar all around the edges of the hoods/lids. I climbed up on a stool to get a better view and thought things look a lot different from up there. Nowadays I tend to be always looking up at the tall pitchers as they're growing so well.
This was the one I noticed first
Up on the stool.
It only appears to be the flavas. I couldn't see the other species doing the same.
This must be the best year I've ever had with S. minor. The plants retained their pitchers over the very mild winter and then got a boost with all that spring sunshine.
I was up on the stool again to have a look at how the plants at the back were performing. This S. x moorei was looking quite good but really it's only showing off to a nutter standing on tiptoe on a stool . It's supposed to be taller than the flavas. Oh! the flies can see it too
Also over the back but standing tall enough to be seen whilst standing on the floor is Slack's S. 'Burgundy'. The sun we've had hasn't done the colouring on that any harm.

stevebooth: I trust the ceremony was more successful where you are, out of the 30-40mm of rain the infallible Beeb promised, with possible dangerous levels of flood wate, I’ve had 3mm. A decent amount for a woodlice bath, but not enough to water much.

stevebooth: Too true the bogs are at the lowest level for the entire year, I don’t really want to get the RO out.
