Here's a peculiar and fascinating clone that originated from Sarracenia Northwest. This must be a very genetically unique clone because I've seen hundreds of thousands of plants, but never have I seen this bizarre looking lip on any other plant! Jeff: do you have any other information on this clone?
When did you get this plant from us? I found one out in the nursery that looks pretty close to it, but lots of our leaves are dying on plants since we've had some freezing temperatures. It was simply labeled "Fine Vein" from 2011.
haha! You guys would make good detectives Yes, I received a piece from Rob maybe a year or two ago. Did you guys come up with the name? It's definitely really neat, probably worthy of registering (of course, you or Jacob should have the honor of naming it!)
Jacob told me that when Rob was here a few years ago at an open house he saw the plant (We had a small number of them) and Jacob said we could part with it. It was just out of a group of random leucos, and we don't really know where it came from. It could have been Dean Cook, Rob at Botanique, or just a plant that I got from a customer liquidating their collection. It was Rob that named the plant. I'll tell Jacob. He wasn't real fond of the name. Thank-you for pointing this out. I might not have noticed how different this leuco is from the others. I'm usually looking for size or intensity of the white.
I went out and looked again, and I think we do have a few. I'm going to set them aside now! I'll post a photo to see if it looks like the same plant as yours.
Thanks for the info Jeff! I'm not sure if that plant labeled fine vein from 2011 is the same thing, but it could be...Rob seems to have had this clone from 2009 or earlier. Here's what he wrote about it from his flickr account: "Seed grown clone received from Jacob Farin. Jacob coined the term "Juju lips" which is Hawaiian slang for large lips. This particular clone has a deep pronounced lip, and gets more color over time. This is a photo of a more recent opened pitcher."

Nice growing Mike, it's looking good!
Hi Jeff! Indeed I got this plant from SNW. I actually didn't get at an open house - I did go to visit one year, but I was just stopping by on my roadtrip from Seattle back into Cali. Unfortunately I didn't get the pleasure of meeting you, but I hope to make it up again soon!
It really is a great plant. It was one of my first leucophyllas that I started growing. I just checked my records and (if interested) I ordered it on Sat. April 16, 2005. Wow (Now it's 3519 days later!)
After growing it for 3 years, I shared a photo with Jacob - he was actually the one who coined the term on 1 Oct 2008:
>On Oct 1, 2008, at 11:17 PM, Jacob Farin wrote > We got the seeds from our mother plants, so it was propagated at our > nursery. We rely on open pollination, but it appears to be a true species. > Call it juju lips! > > Good growing! > Jacob Farin"
Also he suggested "Magic Lips" in a latter email, but I just used the term "Juju Lips" since it was the first nickname that he mentioned.
Thanks again for the great plant Jeff and Jacob! It's a truly wonderful leuco!
I don't think this term is too profane Definition #1: "JUJU LIPs:SHORT FOR JUICY LIPS. WHEN A GURL (OR GUY) HAS REALLY BIG, PLUMP LIPS" used in sentence: "DAyam, my un-named Sarracenia clone is soooo hawt! Check out them JuJu lips, MMMM-MMMM goooooood!"
Definition #2: "JuJu lips: A unique individual with gorgeous kissable lips that taste like jujubees" used in a sentence: "While I prefer crumpets and tea, I doth thinketh that thy Sarracenia clone is rather quaint...Oh, perhaps it haseth juju lips like thy queen"
I don't see how this term is any worse than deep throat or bris...in fact, it's pretty damn clever if you ask me!

kayota: how have I only just discovered this forum when I've been raising CPs for 15 years? I'm just getting back into it after accidentally leaving my plants with a crappy roommate and being unable to get them back

kayota: So all I have rn is S. oreophila but I saw a lovely leucophylla from a local grower at a garden center the other day so I'm gonna pick that up when I can

summit: Hey guys, I'm about to sow some seeds and I was curious to know what everyone thinks 'too hot' for Sarracenia seeds would be? Having them in the dome bumps up the temps a bit.

DirtyDivisions: summit I’ve been fine at a constant 95° F under the dome. Once the tiny seedlings have two pitchers I remove the dome and temps go down.
Oct 5, 2019 20:28:05 GMT -5
summit: @dirtydivisions Thanks for that! I'm sitting around 87-88F with the dome fully sealed but I wasn't doing that and sacrificing humidity to keep it cooler but I'll go ahead and close it down now!
