cpbobby and yosemite - 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.[/quote]
Thanks,good to know....it behaves like an oreo-....it browns early and then throws philodia but that much color is suspect indeed.....as for an oreophila to spread around.... I have bagged ,waited ,selfed ,and re-bagged this very green oreo this year.....if it gives viable seed I'm hoping to let seeds roam around the USA in little envelopes but there are months to wait and see if my performance as a 220 pound bumble bee convinced the flower.....
AMD? LOL Damn Eric, props for taking nerd talk to the next level...
On a different note but relevant to this thread, Drew Martinez took that oreophila imposter and crossed it with the black veined flava, and the offspring are rather (Allen, which is long for Al) GORGEOUS! Gonna snap some pics soon.

Why can't my stuff wake up already?!! Curses the crazy weather stunting everything (and hail for cutting off what was growing!!!!)
HC if I was growing Sarrs in CO I'd have had a greenhouse for them by now. Props for soldiering on this long without one!
I'll edit and say one pitcher is now open (and I'll get a pic probably tomorrow), but unfortunately the greenhouses inside that house the tropicals are all I can afford (something that would withstand the storms out here and have the necessary ventilation is outside my capacity at the moment, otherwise I'd have one).
Those who are crazy enough to think they can change the world, are the ones that do.
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: I am planning on doing an order from Mike... and I’m on a budget, some of the hardest decisions I’ve ever made

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
