I guess I should have said I am not going to get alot of CV's this year.....umm yea that's what I meant!! I have been into sarracenia long enough that I have finally developed what I call "specialized taste". Seems my favs are big rugellis both in height and lids and veiny "florida style" flava ornata's with or without the red throat.
In addition to what I already have, I got this "little lot" from Wes Buckner....it is bittersweet that there are not alot of opportunities left to repeat the feeling......last I checked he is down to 1500 out of 6500 plants.
I also have some on the way from calen and pretty soon mike as well.
Below will be a pic and if you all have any suggestions regarding some of my favs I may be overlooking; feel free to inform me since apparently I do not have enough plants. Guess it doesn't stop until my entire front yard has become a "Savage Garden"! lol.
Didn't see it. been slacking! Work has been killing me....8 straight weeks of mandatory overtime; ugh!
I think about it yea the double flower is unique n stuff but just looks like a reg flava to me. Besides once the price is gonna go sky high. I am not at that point where I have to buy really exclusive things yet. I can get so much more for the same expenditure.
there are a few in there that have gotten my attention tho.....that lot of flava ornatas looks nice.
I could be wrong tho.....if it is sterile then it might not be very valuable to the breeders. Obviously the way to go with this one is send one of those growth points to a TC lab.
here is my haul from Calen below; one of em was a little dry but last time I looked it is spitting out new growth so all is fine! I do admire a seller who tries to impress....as general conversation I shared what kind of plants I like and the freebie to the left is better than the purchases(at least to my personal taste anyway; florida flava ornata's are the best imo).
woulda bought more but he was cleaned out on the ones I wanted and I think I got like the last red lips by like 1h.

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
