Looking great BD! That pitcher heading west is actually trying to point out than completely sarracenia-free zone along the fence that you must fill with plants! Seedlings are looking very healthy too. How long do you plan to keep them under lights?

Thanks Calen! Yes...that open area is calling for more plants. However that is probably where I'll build my actual water table, whenever that happens..
I sowed these seeds back in February, so they're only about 7 months old at this point. I was planning to keep them under 24h light for 1.5-2 years, depending. I have more crosses outside developing right now, so I'll need a larger seed growing area than just the freezer in this spare fridge.

Been awhile since I posted here, and Photobucket giving everyone the finger held me back from posting for awhile as I figured out what I was going to do about image hosting. Most of my pictures in this thread are dead now, I might get around to fixing them at some point. I decided to take the dive into AWS S3 and just got it up and running. Here are some pictures from the weekend.
I spent Saturday potting up my 7 new Sarracenia.
- S. 'Adrian Slack' - S. leucophylla var. alba 'Hurricane Creek White' Baldwin Co, AL (Clone F) (MW) - S. flava var. ornata 'Improved Black Veins' (MW F35a) - S. leuco red x minor giant (MW HY2) - S. leucophylla 'Burgundy’ aka leuco 'pink' (MW L7) - S. flava var. atropurpurea (MW F43) - S. oreophilia var. ornata (Clay Co, NC) with a note: "Very rare in cultivation."
My first seedlings keep looking better and better. Stoked to see them in another year! They're close to busting out of the small cells they are stuck in at this point.
- S. flava var. atropurpurea (MW F43)
- S. flava var. ornata 'Improved Black Veins' (MW F35a)
- S. leuco red x minor giant (MW HY2)
- S. 'Adrian Slack'
- S. oreophilia var. ornata (Clay Co, NC)
- S. leucophylla var. alba 'Hurricane Creek White' Baldwin Co, AL (Clone F) (MW)
- S. x moorei "Phil" Clone #2.
- S. 'Black Widow'
My Dana's Delight was not getting the proper light in the backrow, I had to do a little rearranging to bring it into more light. Very few pitchers and mostly phyllodia, not a good look.
A spider has taken to redecorating this flower in its style.
- S. x excellens (S. leucophylla burgundy x S. minor var. okefenokeensis) ("pink clone") (Mike Wang)
- S. flava var. rubricorpora "agristats" x var. ornata (Phil Faulisi)
- S. minor var. okefenokeensis (Ware Co, GA) (unique seedling) (Mike Wang)
- S. 'Judith Hindle'
This thing needs to be dealt with this winter, turned into quite the jungle.
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
