The great thing about 'Tarnok' flowers is the fact that each flower has a different look to it. Here are 4 out of the 12 blooms I have in the bog. I tried pollinating all of them with flava ornata pollen. We'll see if I get any viable seed from them:

I took a quick picture of the Sarracenia we have growing in a greenhouse at school. I don't know too much about the rubra alabamensis plants in front, but all of leucos are just entering their second year of growth. They were grown from seed collected in Conecuh National Forest, AL. I can get better pictures if you guys are interested.
Sorry to hear about your purps hcarlton. I lost a minor okee giant and a really nice flava ornata seedling to rot last summer.
Here are a couple shots of a minibog I built as a gift for my friend Adam last winter. It's a flava rugelii, a purp venosa, a Judith Hindle, a B-52 flytrap, and a cape sundew in an 11 inch bowl. I wish I had his back yard! There is no shade in it whatsoever all day and the plants are really loving it. He's loving the plants too - pretty sure I've got him hooked now LOL. It's the classic "first one's free, then you gotta pay..." haha. Close-up of the rugelii

Here are some photos taken 4/21/14 at "The Office", a super secret location in NYC.
In other news, I put over 400 seeds in my fridge to stratify. Needless to say, I will be growing them out for a long while, and then might be using them to trade. Many of the seeds are the same crosses seen in the tanks at the office, and others are OP, generously given to me by davidgreen and eric. So if anyone has been oogling those crosses in the office tanks (Avalanche x Firespirit, Copper Catesbaei x Purp Ruffles, Catesbaei x Monster Catesbaei) be patient, i may have spares a year or so from now. Provided all goes well.
Creator of the forums! Yeah, I know I was away for a while, but I am back!!!

I took some better pictures of the S. leucophylla, Conecuh National Forest, AL, plants I have growing at school. Some are starting to show some real character entering their second growing season. I think it's cool to look at these because I don't think this is a location from which a lot of growers have plants.
Here are about 650 plants. No clones yet. All seedlings.
Newly opened pitcher. It'll be interesting to track how much red stays in this year's pitchers as they get older.
This one is one of my favorites so far. It lacks a lot of red like 'Hurricane Creek White', but the throat is so short and the hood doesn't really flip up like a lot of leucos do! I can't wait for more to come up to see if this is a consistent trait.
Here's a side view of the same plant.
This is one of the reddest so far. I'm thinking it probably has a good bit of rubra in its past.
Here's the red one again. I tried to get a better picture to show off the red, but it didn't turn out like I'd hoped.
Here's one last one. Nothing too special, but it is one of the tallest ones so far.
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
