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:
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!

sanguinearocks101: What are good plants to make hybrids with S. luecophylla with? Im looking for dark colors.

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
