Here's one of the prized red clones of minor var. okefenokeensis. Interestingly, the spring/summer pitchers are normally not colorful at all-it's mainly in the fall when the pitchers turn solid, dark red. However, this year, even the spring pitchers are producing some colors.
This clone is fast growing, and in good years, has produced gigantic traps. This year, the traps on my mother plant are about a foot and a half tall-nothing too crazy. I'm hoping it produces some giant ones in the fall.
S. minor var. okefenokeensis Ware Co, GA clone C:
I already posted this picture in another thread, but this really gives you an idea of how red this clone is compared to others under the same exact conditions (clone C is in the lower right hand corner):

some new photos of S. minor var. okefenokeensis Ware Co, GA clone C, taken 5/25/13. It doesn't always produce red spring pitchers (they're usually a lot more red in the fall), but this year, they're red again:
kayota: how have I only just discovered this forum when I've been raising CPs for 15 years? I'm just getting back into it after accidentally leaving my plants with a crappy roommate and being unable to get them back

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!
