S. oreophila x 'Leah Wilkerson' clones. These are very vigorous. They were in a community pot last year and one of them for root rot so I had to do an emergency transplant. I took a few divs of each of these and they didn't skip a beat in the growth dept. I think they'll get huge.
Sad news though: this stupid up and down weather has continued to take a toll; all the Baldwin leucos that were outside last year are gone, along with that thin-pitchered alata I had and I worry about this one flava that looks off.....can we please just get warm weather and be done with it already?!!!
Those who are crazy enough to think they can change the world, are the ones that do.
Some of the nicer looking babies. A sulfur treatment was recently performed so they are not displaying that vibrant coloration I love.
S. x 'Vintner's Treasure' - All props for the creation and cultivation of this stunning specimen goes to philcula . God, what a beauty!! I am really looking forward to see how she matures in the years to come.
Awwww, she is already making cuddle buddies
S. x 'Black Widow' - Yet another phenomenal creation by philcula . Currently a shade of dark maroon which will blacken in a few weeks time. And look at that nectar roll; I bet Phil has tasted this one, LOLOL.
S. flava "Extreme Red Throat" - Of course, no posting would be complete without a pic of ERT.
S. x "Bengal Tiger"
S. flava var ornata MK F88
Squared shaped rubricorpora clone

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: 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.
