I love this unusual color form so I thought I'd toss a thread up here (just acquired this clone from Jerry Addington so I can't claim credit for the current traps)! This is the same color form, but definitely a different clone from, this plant: sarracenia.proboards.com/thread/1359/flava-var-jl407 I plan on crossing these two clones next spring to further develop this uncommon and gorgeous look!
Here is an update on this stellar clone. This plant has been extremely vigorous and trouble-free, and this year has shot up some quite tall traps. Like many plants, it's taken my division a couple seasons to reach vegetative maturity even though it was capable of blooming in previous years. The way the subtle colors highlight the form of the pitcher truly has to be seen in person, but these pics do an OK job of capturing it. Untitled by Calen Hall, on Flickr
Very subtle beauty. Do you think there’s maxima parentage? Am I getting it right: the veins are as red as the rest of the lid but not anthocyanin free, that is, not inverse veins?
Seems like the veinless gene and the coppertop gene are distinct and this guy rocks both! It’s not apparent in the pics but this clone does display subtle inverse veining - as in the pigment responsible for the copper color (not sure if it’s anthocyanin or not) doesn’t show up there either. It’s a super gorgeous phenotype. I wouldn’t say it’s common in the wild, but Steve G and I observed it at most locations where cuprea and maxima were growing together.

iona: Hello everyone! I was wondering if anyone had extra Pinguicula grandiflora plants or seeds to spare, and they are so difficult to get in the US but think it’d be a great addition to my big garden.

soudchid1973: Hello everyone, I'm looking for large flytraps like the colorado giant and comparable size to that. Thanks
