Technically, I would like to call this clone golden leucophylla, but you can't use latin with cultivar names, so there you have it: some obscure phonetic short-handed spelling for leucophylla. Hey, at least it's not "leucobra" (yes, take note Calen, haha!).
Anyhow, What do you get when you cross S. leucophylla with rubra wherryi (leucophylla=mother)? Lots and lots of muts, a few reddish looking plants with leucophylla dominance in color and shape, a few wherryi shaped traps with white tops (which are pretty darn cool), and then occasionally, you get these amazing golden plants like this one! This particular clone has the same exact shape as S. leucophylla, but a yellow-golden color and red veins. This color pattern isn't unique, but it's certainly extremely rare.
Photos taken 7/2/15: holy GOSH!
Just to pre-empt those who are about to email me, this is still a very small seedling, so some time is needed before divisions will become available. I will ask naturenutz if I can borrow some of his plant roids to help speed things up.

Gotta be careful wit them roids though: much like Arnold Schwarzenegger, Randy Savage, etc. it may make your crops "swole" but the cost is the plants become significantly more susceptible to rot aka death. I think Hulk Hogan and Arnold played their cards right and stopped early enough so the roids wouldn't kill them, but the late Randy Savage wasn't so lucky....I think the combination of roids and too many slim jims (unhealthy diet) may have given him health troubles later in life.
Our plants have evolved eating a diverse array of free-range organic insects, LOL

Very true; I almost 'aced out' (my favorite mike w expression) my vfts a few months ago with too much MaxSea foliar feeding. Botrytis showed up to the party and my basement smelled like sulphur for a week before I was sure I'd beaten it back. Interesting fact: Mrs. does NOT like the house smelling like sulphur. So, MaxSea could also end your marriage if you aren't careful
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.

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!

Skirt: Sarracenia can grow in Miami, right?
Feb 12, 2020 0:35:25 GMT -5
DirtyDivisions: Yep, Sarracenia will grow anywhere! In your toilet even...if have the proper amount of light etc...

mikee: I have just joined this forum so will make a few mistakes - So here goes I have recently started my collection and now have some 150 to 200 plants during my first year. I have some very nice flowers spikes and would like to propagate.
Apr 18, 2020 4:57:24 GMT -5
mikee: So I would like to know the different properties for colour - vigor - size etc I don't have the time due to my age so would not be able run over many years can someone help or guide me

mikee: Thanks you chofah, there is a great video from The Pitcher Project with Phil Faulisi this was what I was looking for. However it still appears to be wait and see what results come from the cross. Many thanks

Willy: It would be rather silly to expect totally predictable results from a cross. The individual plants grown from the seeds will vary, sometimes quite a bit, even with carefully protected hand pollination. If you open polinate, the variety may be even greater.

superstressed: Recently purchased a s. purpurea from Mike and I am so impressed with the quality of the plant that arrived. My Purpurea is now one of the larger plants in my collection! Mike also included an beautiful Flava var. for free. I will absolutely buy again.
