I don't know much about this plant, other than it's pretty darn hard to find in cultivation here in the US, and it's quite stunning! As you may know, all AF plants under optimal conditions can turn bright yellowish-green. I have 2 different clones, one from Europe and another piece that has slowly been going into circulation here in California. These may very well be the same exact plant, not sure yet.
In any case, S. jonesii 'anthocyanin free' is fast growing plant, but much like all rubras, the roots are very sensitive to standing water, so I grow them like S. oreophilas: they sit in water in the morning, and by the evening, the water in the tray or reservoir has completely evaporated.. This clone recently experienced 102F temps in full sun without any issues, so strong plants can tolerate extreme temporary heat. They form impressive clumps over time, and their most impressive show is in the fall. It seems like this plant only started to produce their sturdy, impressive traps, there's probably more to come.

stu: Hi Mike: I’m pleased to report that the S. rubra wherryi Chatom Giant you sent has arrived in great shape as did the bonus plant from NC. Both are now back under southern skies and are feeling warm, humid, and at home again. Thanks!

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
