Call me "Mr. MIYAGI", No........like true Asian, my first instinct was to take of my slipper off and swat it over the plants like I would a Coach-Roach. You know these bugs are BIG! Chop Sticks was the safest way, plant wise. I use the sticks "mainly pick up the beetles that have fallen into the water filled basins. But they just fly back to the pitchers and die.
photos taken this morning, 7/21/16. In the background, there are 5 cherry tomatoes (2 sungolds, 1 sun sugar, 1 grape, and 1 sweet 100), and my wife keeps nagging me as to when we'll get some production. Nevermind that I've been snacking on the ones here and there that have ripened on the bottom... There's like a gabillion of them, but they're mostly green......... "Mom, those plants growing in my closet...they're just tomatoes" what's funny is I'm probably one of the few people out there that was actually only growing tomatoes in their closet as a teen, LOL I had crossed early girl with big beef when I was 16, and they had early girl dominant phenotypes...
I digress, here's some Sarracenia collection pics:
In case you can't tell, I'm starting to have quite a leucophylla obsession. Lots more beds filled with them now than ever before:

dj57 That [(leuco x rubra) x minor Okee giant] x J.H. is a looker!! Very cool!
Thank you! Yeah, that one is one of my favorites for sure. It sure stands out among the pinks, whites, and greens of other sarrs. I picked it up when visiting Jerry Addington’s nursery last year. I was not sure it would hold its color outside greenhouse conditions here but it did, maybe a little lighter color but not much. It produces pitchers all season and the later ones still looked good this spring, nice. I can’t wait for it to become dividable so I can share. I need to get it into a larger pot next spring to help that along.
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.
