Just received my first order from Mike Wang today!
I placed an order for an S. leuco burgundy x minor giant ‘pink clone’ that has been on my want list for a long time. Mike was awesome enough not to cut the pitchers off before shipping and also threw in a massive multi growth point S. leucophylla (Baldwin Co, Alabama) (various clones) rhizome for free.
Mike was quick to respond to my emails and very helpful in helping me choose between two of his gorgeous S. x excellens plants. In fact, I think I'm going to have to order up the other plant that I was trying to decide between.

Amazing plants. I alaways end up going back and buying a clone that I decided not to get.
My first order off the season was in December, I got a S. Rosea liberty co, Fl, S. Flava var. rubricopora bay co, Fl, and a S. Rosea mobile co, Al clone Q. I got a rugelii and a Montana Jackson co, NC as a bonus.
My second order was from my mom for Christmas, it was a rosea mobile co, clone a, clone a x e, and alata stone co, MS clone a. I got a rosea liberty co, Fl division as a bonus.
My dad got me a rosea from mobile co, Al clone n (plus one bonus) and a rubricopora bay co, Fl.
For my birthday this week, my dad ordered me a minor old dock, clone A, and a psitticina variety okee from liberty co, Fl
My final order is being shipped on Monday. It is a psitticina varity okee AF, a flava var. flava snead's ferry, and a oreophila fr clay co, Nc. I can't wait to receive this order.
If you have any doubts, order from mike. His plants are amazing, and are extremely healthy.
After last year's order from Mike went above my expectations, I already placed my order for this year. Just came in the mail today...
Left to Right: S. rosea Mobile Co. AL, clone K (freebie!), S. rosea Liberty Co., FL, S. purpurea ssp. purpurea f. heterophylla, S. alata f. viridescens, Washinton Co. AL.
That S. rosea Liberty Co. FL, isn't messing around. That's the largest rosea pitcher I've ever seen, things the size of my hand. It also already has the start of a flower bud.
All potted up now:
S. rosea, Mobile Co. AL, clone K & S. alata f. viridescens
S. purpurea ssp. purpurea heterphylla & S. rosea Liberty Co. FL
Thanks for sending such gigantic plants. I keep seeing sizes stated as medium or large from other vendors and am always surprised at how large your medium and large sized plants are compared to others! Extra thanks for the bonus rosea. Plants from FL & AL do fantastic here, kinda like being back home!
I just realized I never took and posted photos from my order last year. Everything is dormant and looks that way, so will take photos later in the year when they're looking their best.
goodkoalie I spent too much on the holidays so had to take it easy on this order. However, making another order and getting a clone I decided not to get this time is in the plan for later in the year, so I hear that, lol.

I just finished my order with Mike! It looks like I may be starting another one soon for that S. rosea Liberty Co. FL! That thing is gorgeous!
Do it, do it, do it, do it. I love to collect plants with Florida location data and rosea is my favorite Sarr, so I would've ordered it without having ever seen a picture anyway. SO happy with it, can't wait to see how big it gets this summer here in FL.
There were one or two other I really wanted and will probably have order later in the year too, (when I've got a bit more $ to spend on plants.) So everyone, keep pictures of your incoming Sarrs coming, have to make a good list for later ya know!
calen, that's the sort of thing I like to hear. Do you have different clones to compare? I went to check for pictures to compare and k wasn't even on the sales list. Either way, wooooo! I just like how fatty the pitchers are.

I have Mike's Mobile Co. clones M, P, and K and couple different clones from Bay Co. FL. They are all nice plants, but Clone K has so far been the tubbiest, chunkiest plant of them all and I love that! I posted some early season photos of my K in the above thread, but it got almost grotesquely tubby and thick as the season progressed. It is awesomeness. Will try to get some more pics up in the 2015 grow season.
Haha meizzwang and I were both responding at the same time! Looks like I might have misidentified K in that thread! But yeah they are all super badass plants - it's too bad that flava and leuc get all the attention
stu: Hi Mike: I’m pleased to report that the S. rubra wherryi Chatom Giant you sent has arrived in great shape as did the bonus plant from NC. Both are now back under southern skies and are feeling warm, humid, and at home again. Thanks!

sanguinearocks101: What are good plants to make hybrids with S. luecophylla with? Im looking for dark colors.

adaetz100: Sarracenia purpurea tends to add a lot of red/purple to its offspring, but there are some lovely dark red flava x leucophylla crosses too. Look up 'Royal Ruby' if you're not familiar with it already--it's a natural flava x leuco hybrid
