Got my first order from Mike in today, and this will certainly not be my last! I ordered a Leah Wilk and Reptilian Rose and Mike graciously threw in a Minor, Leuco, and Flava Extreme Red Throat. I told him I lived in Sacramento where it gets oppressively hot so he threw in some species that he thought would do well so big thumbs up to Mike for his generosity!

I'm a CP noob and forum lurker, so at this point I can't really hold forth on anything regarding carnivorous plants. Except for this- Mike Wang has some butt-kickin' plants. I've ordered several, and every experience has been fantastic. I can't say or photograph something that hasn't already been said or photographed better than I could do. Just know that I "plus one" every comment on this here thread! Bad on me for taking so long to say so- sorry Mike!

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
