I'm pretty sure that lump in the middle of the crown is a flower! Hopefully my other Sarracenia will follow suit soon.

Inside, I've started raising the photoperiod under my lights to mimic the photoperiod outside. It's amazing how the plants have responded. Within a week, I saw developing flower stalks from no less than five different species!
