Hooded Pitcher Plant, Sarracenia minor

with one comment

Our classroom’s resident Sarracenia minor spends the summer at home on the porch. Although our classroom windows provide ample sunlight for plants on the sill¬†(and a spectacular view of the butterfly garden),¬†these carnivorous classmates don’t get much protein during the school year.

 

Smile.

Laugh.

Eat.
