Naturenuts: were you able to get seeds from your plants?
I did not. It looked like I was successful pollinating one of the flowers, but something ended up chewing through seed pod before they were all the way developed. Hopefully, they will bloom again this year. The leaves of both plants still look super healthy and I have a third plant that should be blooming this year.
sflguy: they definitely cannot handle hard water, they need quality water just like Sarracenia, but they can tolerate slightly higher salt concentrations. They love full sun, but don't like sitting in water...they're actually pretty easy to grow.
Fingers crossed I get some of these to flower this year, a few are sending up "spikes" but with such small bulbs, you never know if there's a flower bud in them:

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
