Here's a neat clone of S. alata f. viridescens (anthocyanin free) from Washington Co, AL. I was informed this came from a site that is now heavily shaded by surrounding vegetation, and if there isn't a burn or clearing, the original plant will likely perish. Unfortunately, in the wild, a clearing usually involves bulldozers, which scrape away all the plants and top layer of soil. These destroyed habitats are generally cleared to plant pines.
Fortunately, this plant has made its way around the globe, so at least the genes will live on! Traps can become lemon yellow under optimal conditions:

And, while I haven't been there personally to check, the site where it was found may be within the boundaries of the road construction Jim Miller witnessed on his last trip there, which -- in his words -- decimated the CP for miles. This plant was found within sight/sound of a state highway (I have old habitat shots of the site with big-rig trucks in the background).
I hope that the site survives. If not, I'm glad that so many incredible Sarracenia clones -- both species and hybrids -- are now safe in cultivation.
kayota: how have I only just discovered this forum when I've been raising CPs for 15 years? I'm just getting back into it after accidentally leaving my plants with a crappy roommate and being unable to get them back

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!
