Mr. Wang I might start avoiding your post based on pure jealousy alone lol. But in all seriousness I can't wait till I get some extra money to throw your way for some plants, everyone speaks so highly of your specimen's and you inventory seems to grow while alot of other nursery's I've ordered from are offering less and less diversity.

not completely, still lugging stuff back and forth. What's insane is when I have to move the entire collection: it's going to take a freight truck or two! Not looking forward to that, moving is no fun.
Oh, and to think I complained about moving my what, maybe 10 Sarracenia pots again, LOL. Moving is not fun for anyone, but I certainly don't envy your move. I think I need one of these, there's some nice almost pinkish-orange hues on some of those.

Hi Mike, I have a S. rosea from the Chipola River area that is blooming for the first time. To my surprise the flower looked pure white just like this one. Now that the flower is fully expanded, I can see it is actually an extremely pale pink. I am wondering if the flower on your plant is similar, or does it stay pure white?
One thing I've learned about roseas from Liberty Co, FL: you can't judge fatness until they've reached vegetative maturity! It's really strange, on a single young plant, there can be a somewhat regular, "fit" trap that clearly has worked out a bit, but then on the same exact plant, a really round, bath TUBBY trap will form! Phenotypic variance is quite extreme with this population, and now I'm curious to compare other populations to see if this is going on elsewhere.
Anyways, here's a few shots of the liberty Co, FL roseas. Fat might not be the best for longevity, but in this case, it's beautiful! Pics taken 6/15/20:
This guy did a a bunch of sit ups and was lookin slim, but I surmise it caved in and threw it all away on a pizza. FAT is beautiful, ladies and gentlemen:

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
