Don't underestimate your collection, I've been very impressed with what's you've produced! There's so many other talented growers on this forum, and it's great to see everyone's collection. Unless you're Phil Faulisi (hehe), I don't think anyone is competing against you or others, we're merely here to enjoy each other's cropz
Hell I was just teasing. I know it's not a contest. I like drooling over pics of your plants:D.

Lid isn't fully developed yet, but here is another series of shots of mike's s. flava ornata 'Improved Black Veins.' This is such a sharp looking clone!
So I have a new addition to the collection: s. flava ornata 'Phil's Clone' The sheer mass and sturdiness of the pitchers took me by surprise. When I was unboxing it, I was thinking to myself "Did he ship this potted?!"
Daaaang Bill those are some nice flavas! Is that IBV the one from your bog? Looks like a killer clone.
Thanks Calen! Yes it was one of the Sarracenias that overwintered in my bog last year. I was really concerned that the extreme winter would kill it, but it emerged unscathed. Being at ground level, and a little lfs topdressing was enough for it to withstand up to -5°f temps!
I still have some plants being grown indoors, but will soon be moved outside. They have been doing rather well though (especially with MaxSea). The plants outdoors are coming along, but mostly flowers coming up right now.

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
