My biggest regret about S. alata Sam Rayburn Reservoir, TX is making a horrible decision about them as a teen. I had an entire population of these, but I composted them because they didn't seem special at the time (I ran out of space) and kept only two clones. What a horrible mistake!!!!
Decades later, these are irreplaceable, I have no idea if the original populatin exists anymore....probably not. I'm still struggling to keep these two clones alive, but they're still going! They're absolutely amazing for breeding, but one of the most difficult clones in the collection to keep alive. The other clones weren't half as hard to cultivate, I have no clue what I was thinking at the time!
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!

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
