alright, now that I got all that faces of Bay Co thang clarified and out of the way, here's some photos to enjoy, pix taken 6/20/16. Those bright white leucophyllas are select clones from multiple different locations, and in the background, you can see some giant bay co, FL rubricorpora traps that are just starting to color up:
Some improved black veins and others. In the foreground, to the left, if you can believe it, I crossed S. flava killer with S. flava var. rugelii clone A, and you can see one of them turned out solid red like an atropurpurea!

Good thing is, the more addicted you become to Sarracenias, the healthier you get! Those Bay Co, FL rubricorporas...c'mon, you know it brings only smiles to your face, and calmness to you mind. It's nothing like the faces of meth (from top to bottom, which is your favorite pic? )
Smiles and calmness indeed! But with all those smiles comes my monthly peat habit, I'm mixing up max sea like its chocolate koolaid, and I have a never ending thirst for the purest of water. The doctor didn't warn me about the side affects!
I know it's real bad when you posted your latest amazing photos and all I can focus on is the red flavas.....
Damn, it has been hot in the Bay Area. You'll have to scrape me off the floor but at least some of the Sarrs are happy with the heat wave.
S. flava hybrid (rubricorpora x ornata, Bullock Co, GA) - ultra vigorous and more ornata like but with a reddish blush. Lids are huge on this plant at 5'' diameter.
Day versus dusk coloration of few philcula plants - left back, S.x moorei "Super heavy veins"; right back, S.x 'Vintner's Treasure'; right front, S. x readii x 'Royal Ruby' clone 2; left front, S. x moorei "Purple Sparks"
S. x moorei "Super Heavy Veins" with a "Purple Sparks" photobomb
S. x moorei "Vintner's Treasure"
S. x moorei "future cultivar"
Of all the S. flava var. ornata improved black veins from meizzwang , this individual has the most extreme veining. For the last year, it was nothing to write home about, but this season it's been extremely happy with me. Look at those veins under the lid!!!
baby pitchers- HELLO!!
From my post, you might surmise that I love flava var. ornatas and giant mooreis. And you would be correct. Of course, I had to get a piece of Christian Klein's S. flava var. ornata "Super Ornata". Um..it is a shorty, and I suspect a hybrid, but still a lovely specimen.
S. x "Bengal Tiger" - MOAR VEINS!!
S, 'Reptilian Rose' x leucophylla "purple lips"
S. flava "killer" - The lids on this clone are also giant!!
You have the actual "Bengal Tiger"....I'm jealous.
Actually not a difficult clone to procure. I simply inquired if Brooks Garcia had any available. Plus, it did not cost me my first born child, so a win-win outcome. FYI, it is a slow grower which may be a reason for its scarcity.
Heh...granted, some of the Bengal x "Cinnamon Tube" I have are pretty close to the original plant (like one of the photos I posted earlier in the thread), but there's something about the original that's just unique... Didn't I hear that Phil crossed it with one of the black vein ornata too?
Those who are crazy enough to think they can change the world, are the ones that do.
Looking amazeballs pokie22 and BaseDrifter ! Doing Sarracenia right! Here are a few snaps from around my way in leafy, green Oregon. The summer days are really quite ridiculous here - sooooooooo looooong and sunny and the plants love it. For all you alata lovers out there, here are a few mixed clones. There's Night, Night x self, Night x sib, and Black Throat all mixed in here! Shameless F88 portrait. Love this clone! The future:
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.
Oct 5, 2019 20:28:05 GMT -5
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.
