I received this guy for free as my 1st cp so it has been in my care for 5 years. Strangely enough it may be somewhat unique. It is a Tate's Hell Bog Catsbaei originally removed from nature back in the 80's.
I dubbed it "The BULLY" bc it has kicked the crap out of everything in that pot. Damn near needs to be potted by itself!
Kind of surprised S. 'Legacy' only went for $361. Always thought that plant was Rob Co's baby and he'd be the first to sell one on ebay.....silly me.
Oi, I lost interest once it crested past $150. lol.
I could literally buy like 4 Nice plants/CV's for that(and I am talking about the $150!!); once my want list gets to the point where only the ridiculous ones are left then maybe....until then prioritize I shall.
It has worked well for me so far. I do not have an exact count but I am fairly certain have over 100 combined nice CV's and species.
So far the only one to break the $100($150) barrier was a VL Adrian Slack. There may be 1-2 more but unlikely bc I would remember paying that much. From personal experience the best "value" market price point for me seems to be between 75-80. At that spot I will usually get a rare CV/Species mature or better(excludes Ultra Rares unless you are lucky enough to bargain a small division).

This plant is becoming a favorite in my collection. It seems to possess all the traits I would call desirable. It is quite vigorous, ornate and it seems to keep putting up better and better pitchers all year long!
I believe I got it from Wes in early 2015. It is a MBRS 'Red Flame'
Couple more CV's 1 a recent acquisition. First, a MBRS 'Tomahawk'; it will probably take a couple years for it to reclaim it's former glory. It is a smaller division and based on my experience with the other version I have, the Tomahawk dark that is not a a fast grower but am certain it will be worth the wait.
Second, due to the recent tag incident makes id a little more challenging but based off what I am seeing looks to be a ruffled sparkler.
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
