Some updated photos of the S. minor var. okefenokeensis Charlton Co, GA plants. They're very big right now, but not gigantic. I chopped all of the plants down to the ground (deadheaded them) during the winter dormancy, and I have to do that because this population is planted too close to each other. I think if you space them out and keep the previous year's growth on until you have a few monster spring traps, they'll probably get bigger.
Even so, let's see: these may still produce giant fall traps! There's a ton of new growth pushing out right now. Photo taken 7/14/18:
hypothetical response to some of the pics above: "I don't know MW, from the pics, these minor giants Charlton Co, GA don't look all that big." MW: "Well then..... check this out, SON(or daughter, depending on the gender of the hypothetical responder)! This ain't even as big as they can get. Photo taken 12/12/18:"

Found an unusually green clone in this population! well, there's two clones like this: they're greener than all the rest, but what's really impressive is how yellow they can get! It reminds me of AF sarracenia in general: under optimal conditions, the green turns to neon yellow! Some of you might actually have this clone already, so if you got a minor giant from me from this population keep a close eye on it. I have divided this neon yellow- green clone in the past, and it has been mixed up with all the other divisions. Photos taken 2/10/19:
Different clone, but same concept. Notice the deep green face that contrasts with the yellower body:
For perspective, a normal colored clone from this population, although this is a dormant pitcher. they tend to color up during the fall and dormancy period:
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?

DirtyDivisions: Yep, Sarracenia will grow anywhere! In your toilet even...if have the proper amount of light etc...

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.
