Very nice paulbarden! And in my experience as well that clone will breed red 50% of the time, give or take. Crossed it with another red tube two years ago and the offspring were 75% red, so both clones seem to be "heterozygous" for the red tube trait! And as you know there are red tubes out there that breed red nearly 100% of the time too. And then you can cross certain green flavas with green leucos and get red mooreis because it's a totally different genetic interaction! Nerd alert, and quotes around "hetero" because as we all know Mendel can only take us so far when it comes to Sarr genetics
Up here in the Great Green North things are finally starting to pop off! The rain is back as of last night so I think the main show will start sometime in May, but here's a few things that be goin' on: cuprea Billy Hoyer for the win on first flava flower First flower period honors to rosea AF! Speaking of rubricorpora MWF1, heres mine. This clone has been very consistent and a good grower. (cuprea Billy Hoyer x ornata Black Veins Bulloch Co GA Damon's Clone) showing some excellent potential
I know these aren't carnivores but I had to include them! Some shots of the native orchids in my area. Kentucky has a solid amount of temperate orchid species. I'm currently taking a plant taxonomy class and it has been incredibly useful for figuring out the habitats that I'm most likely to find these guys in.
Beautiful photos! One thing: you sure your Baldwin county rosea is indeed a rosea? Flower's a bit small and way too red.
Thanks! I got it from Mike last spring so I'm pretty sure it's a tried and true rosea. The summer pitchers have a very strong rosea look as well. The flower isn't exactly that red either, it's a tad bit over saturated from the light but it's definitely more red than pink. This is the first year this plant has flowered for me so I don't have anything to go on from previous years.. Is it possible that it has a more red flower due to the location data? I know it's kinda a long shot but Baldwin Co is well known for its leucos, maybe there is a little bit of that influence at play? But, I'm just throwing out ideas. I was a little curious myself when I first saw the flower. I'll post some pictures of it in growth from last summer to see if that helps at all. Anyone else have suggestions?

Thanks guys! leveling woodchips is a nightmare, and plants constantly fall over when it's windy. Had the same problem before with kiddy pools, but it wasn't as bad, and we switched to taller pots a few years ago which is likely the root cause. Anyhow, the woodchips really have to be pounded into the ground in order to stay level over time (hopefully Calen and naturenuts aren't around to read this comment).
I generally "embrace the chaos" with open pollinating and a single brush covered in pollen from many many flowers.....but this year I am imprisoning a few for specific crosses....mesh bags are making a bold fashion statement in the garden this year....
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.

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.
