calen they're planted entirely in sphagnum. I wish we had peat to use but the sphagnum was the only thing available. It was a pain in the butt to plant in and I used soooooo much of it. At least the plants should develop really nice root systems in it

It's great to see all these beautiful Sarrs starting to put on a show. I have a few that are lookin' good already. My fave opened pitcher so far has been put forth by a rugelii that I've grown from a wee little seedling. It hails out of Liberty Co., FL:
All 13 of these flowers are from the same S. flava var. rubricorpora. I decided not to use this clone in any crosses this year so I cut them and made a cat pee scented bouquet for the wife.
So what was the wife's response. ?
She loved them, but she has a cold and unfortunately isn't able to take in the sweet aroma.
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
