With respect to toppling Sarracenia, I have found, unlike Barry-withthe one
exception he notes, that my S.minor have an inordinate propensity to topple. I
have a few of unknown origin, but those that I have which were from Charleston
and Berkely county, SC have a major tendency. They are grown in more than ade-
quate light, but they still become very large and top-heavy and have a small
diameter at the bases of the pitcher. Those in the wild(mine are seed propagate
d from native seed) grow intertwined with ferns and tall grasses which seem to
lend them support to remain upright.
