Carnivorous Pitcher Plant

Update, April 20, 2014:
The bud was opened a little more Easter Sunday!


Hello, everyone:

I have a carnivorous plant which has had its ups and downs since last spring but it did survive two of our winter freezes.  I forgot to bring it indoors those two times out of our 33 freezes.

As soon as I saw new leaves (pitchers), there was this stalk with a bud which grew.   I didn't know this made a flower.    I have never owned or seen one of these plants until last year and this is the only one I have so far.   I want to find another or propagate this one when it is bigger.

These photos were snapped April 5, 10 and 18, 2014.
