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:
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: 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
