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.
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: 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.
