My 'Adrian Slack' was the first of my plants to bloom last month. I made sure to collect all the pollen it had to offer so I can use it in a few crosses. I already used it to pollinate a "Doreen's Collosus" flower hoping to get a giant clone with 'A S' coloring and shape.
Naturenuts....that gnarly lookin bug is I think some kind of scudderia ie. It's a katydid nymph of some sort. Maybe an insect expert would know for sure. It's definitely cool looking. Don't know if it's good or bad in a nymph stage. Grasshoppers as a whole aren't good for anything green. Lol!
All insects in the grasshopper family are plant scourges, at any stage, as they are always herbivores. Very odd looking bug, even for a hopper relative, but you probably won't be happy with him as he grows up.
Those who are crazy enough to think they can change the world, are the ones that do.

That's what I figured, but I had never seen one like this one before with the black and white striped antennae. Here it is from above:
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
