Hi Mike. Let me get your opinion. Your description of the plant you said you no longer have fits a description of a freebie I got years ago. It was only described as "Oreophila tall and vigorous" Maybe the same plant you had as the photo below? DSCF1762 (1) by MICHAEL SPROUSE, on Flickr

HI Michael! Clone#5 looks very different from that one, the neck was much thicker. It had a unique look to it....you might be better off tracing it back through your source, if you can find out where it originated, then we can make a better educated guess. Could also be a unique clone that I haven't grown, who knows!
Two years after repotting, the S. oreophila Mike Wang #4 has completely filled a gallon pot again. The height is best after a few years without disturbance but this plant just fills pots too fast for me.
Besides being a very tall S. oreophila, #4 has a distinct shape - the combination of a tall column, wide and flat lip, and really angular longitudinal veins especially down the back really are an awesome combination.
That's lovely! It has such a great shape and the veining is really elegant. I have an oreophila from CalCarn that year after year has busted out of pots faster than anything I've ever seen, but alas it is rather boring in terms of appearance. Seems like this is the best of both worlds.
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
