You know how trees can be grafted... I once saw a plum tree which also gave peaches. Apple trees often have grafts for various reasons.
Can the stems / rhizomes of sarracenia be grafted? It would be cool to see various flava forms grafted together. Or anthocyanin free plants grafted with their red counterparts... or would the anthocyanin produced from one part flow through the plant to the af portion?
Imagine a huge sarracenia rhizome which gives multiple pitcher types. When oreophila is giving Phyllodia, perhaps it can also have some leuco pulling out spectacular pitchers... what do you guys think?
I know coleus and various other types of plants can be grafted, so I thought why not sarracenia.
Creator of the forums! Yeah, I know I was away for a while, but I am back!!!
Done lotz of grafting! Theoretically, it might work, but here's an example of a concept that should be kept in mind: When you graft 2 different scions on to a root stock, both of those scions need to have the same level of vigor. For example, I grafted both an owari satsuma mandarin (VERY slow growing) and a Minneloa tangelo (quite fast growing) onto the same root stock, hoping to get 2 different varieties to fruit on the same tree.
7 years later, I have one tiny branch way near the bottom of the bush that produced 2 satsumas (I ended up pruning it off), and a gigantic minneloa tangelo that produced hundreds of fruit!

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
