Looking great Steve! A few shots from today. The big rugelii on the left is AxB#1: Cuprea "Best Clone" and rugelii AxB select seeding mitchelliana D-P x flava rubricorpora by philcula already very colorful at opening Seedlings in the greenhouse, mostly flavas:
Well it's May flowers time since I don't live in California.
Sarracenia oreophila x flava var. rubricorpora (supposedly, I'm told the bit of color there should not be present in this cross - perhaps a small amount of DNA from another species was present in one of the parents? I am confident in the original grower's record-keeping.)
Finally some larger pitchers opening (same plant as above)
Sarracenia "Cateo" does not seem to be quite sure which direction up is. This same plant grew a nearly fully-formed flower bud at soil level in October which is still there and 3 new flowers grew up around it.
Sarracenia 'Cobra Nest'
An adventurous little jumping spider on my S. rosea "Fat Chance"
Baby's first pitcher, even before losing the seed coat! This is the offspring of two clones of S. 'Hurricane Creek White' - if I understand correctly it must exhibit the same green and white coloration when mature to warrant using the name.
This isn't a Sarracenia but it's exciting since it means I must be doing something right! N. sumatrana "giant form"
Looking amazing BaseDrifter. That flava agristarts x ornata is pretty cool! Very distinctive veins under the lid.
Up here in Portlandia we have been having a bit of a SoCal month of May with lots of sun and days in the 80s. The plants are LOVING IT. Red flavas and mooreis poppin' rugelii AxB#1 with the biggest traps it's ever grown for me - worth the wait indeed! moorei (leuco Purple Lips x flava ornata) - one of Phil's monsters looking yuuuge right after opening
F***in' A Bristol! Looking GOOD my man. I am so jealous of your LW - mine is sulking this spring for some reason and looks like doodoo. So thanks for posting those pics for vicarious enjoyment. That maxima is ok too...
cpbobby and yosemite - first of all, great pics. Yosemite I think for once we are having better weather up here in Oregon than y'all back in Cali! PSA: The oreo ornata you guys posted is the flava x oreo hybrid that is currently making the rounds. A ton of this plant has been innocently distributed by a very well regarded grower who I will not name, and possibly others. The flower smells like cat pee and the distinctive under-lid venation style males me think that this widely-grown and awesome flava clone may be the other parent: sarracenia.proboards.com/thread/620/flava-heavy-veins I only mention this because this hybrid is popping up EVERYWHERE. I and others are afraid that this "oreo" will get used in a lot of breeding efforts (because of how exceptional it would be if it were oreo) and will contaminate the cultivated gene pool of an endangered species. That's all. It's a nice plant.
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.
Apr 18, 2020 4:57:24 GMT -5
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.
