Leucophylla dominant moorei hybrids seem to be a very intriguing group of plants, and this clone is no exception! S. x moorei 'Bouquet' looks totally like a pure leucophylla, except it has some outstanding red coloration mixed into it! The underside of the lid is dark red, as is the lip. There's even dark red veins that weave into the white pigments, giving it a very eye-catching contrast of bright and dark colors. This plant produces a profusion of pitchers that when clumped all together, looks like a bouquet....hence the name. Easily one of my favorite mooreis out there so far because of how eye catching it is. Note to would be "plant pimps": I would never in a 1000 years dream of making a bouquet out of this plant and giving it to my wife as a gift....she'll just say "didn't you just cut that off from the front yard?!" Sigh, no love or appreciation for how difficult it is to grow this stuff, imagine how much the plant is set back from such a harvest....
I would never feel inclined to label that as a pure leuco (definitely traits I don't associate with that species here), but it does indeed have a lot of influence from that parent. Love the thick red highlights around the lip and throat.
Those who are crazy enough to think they can change the world, are the ones that do.
some of these traps are becoming more impressive looking. I don't know if it's the weather or what, but this clone produced 2 flushes of fall traps, and what you're seeing is the second flush. photos taken 10/5/16:
This plant is a must have; S. Bouquet. A complex hybrid only exclusively from meizzwang . Not even a year after obtaining it and the plant is already displaying signs of 'GIGANTNESS'. Interesting coloration on this plant is that the dark purple color splatters in with the white and green down the tube (petiole) rather than an even blend as shown on leuco-reds. When mature the mouth could get up to 3 inches wide, with a 4 inch 'drop mouth'.
Very nice Bristol. I really don't know why I don't have this clone yet. I've seen photos of it posted a number of times and always think how nice it is, but I've never gotten around to telling Mike to send me one.
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.
