Looking great phantom! Is that a small greenhouse the leucos are in? Trying to figure out your setup - whatever it is, it's working!
Here are a few random shots from around the collection, starting with a very colorful seedling from the Outlaw site in Bay Co. FL: IMG_1588 by Calen Hall, on Flickr Simone, a beautiful Jerry Addington selection of (mitchelliana) x alata. This is an early season pitcher - the late flush on its way up now will be even more robust. IMG_1581 by Calen Hall, on Flickr A beautifully colored x areolata (leucophylla x alata) - this too is a midsummer trap with the chunkiest pitchers on the way up now. 589 by Calen Hall, on Flickr IMG_1590 by Calen Hall, on Flickr Baldwin Co. AL leucophylla seedlings with some lovely pink clones mixed in - waiting excitedly for fall traps IMG_1580 by Calen Hall, on Flickr Bowl o' S. montana Transylvania Co., NC. These are absolutely some of my favorite plants. IMG_1584 by Calen Hall, on Flickr
100% organic maaaaaaan! Actually, they got really big because I dug really deep holes and filled them with compost, topsoil and native soil. They're infrequently watered, but when they are, they're deep watered.
Some snaps from today! The plants are by and large looking really fresh for August despite it being in the 90s for 3 weeks straight from mid-July on. The late-season performers are starting to shine and there should be plenty more to see over the next several weeks. IMG_1633 by Calen Hall, on Flickr Still just spring and summer traps on the leucos, but more and more clones are going into "asparagus mode" every day IMG_1635 by Calen Hall, on Flickr Part of the alata zone: lower right is the excellent lemon yellow clone from Sam Rayburn Reservoir in Jasper Co. TX, upper left is Night x self, and upper right with the huge unopened traps is Night itself. IMG_1630 by Calen Hall, on Flickr Close up on Night x self. It's got even more robust traps on the way. IMG_1631 by Calen Hall, on Flickr Leuco seedlings and divisions in the greenhouse are a couple weeks ahead of the outdoor leucos (not sure why?? perhaps all things being equal, they pitcher earlier if it's hotter? or it's just due to them being seedlings and smaller rhizomes in general?). These are fall pitchers of (leuco Wilkerson's Red Rocket x leuco, stocky red lip, Santa Rosa Co.) IMG_1621 by Calen Hall, on Flickr A gorgeous seedling of HCW (A x F) - this cross is chockablock with stunning, shapely albas! IMG_1619 by Calen Hall, on Flickr Another incredible (A x F) clone: IMG_1620 by Calen Hall, on Flickr For comparison, here is Clone F grown under identical conditions. Fall pitcher on an immature backup division: IMG_1618 by Calen Hall, on Flickr More HCW seedlings. These are a bit smaller and not showing their full glory yet, but clearly have a lot of potential. Should be some stunners in here come next fall. IMG_1616 by Calen Hall, on Flickr This is an AF leuco - these are all turning out to be gorgeous green and white plants, but notice how much thicker the veins are, which reduces the prominence of the white: IMG_1615 by Calen Hall, on Flickr Another clone: IMG_1614 by Calen Hall, on Flickr Back outside we see a bumble bee living dangerously on a pretty summer trap of yet another nice HCW (A x F) clone: IMG_1636 by Calen Hall, on Flickr
I finally manage to get my table setup at the new place, so I don't have trays scattered across the yard. This will be a trial and error post until I see if this is an appropriate way to upload photos. I still can't figure out how to hotlink from mobile with Flickr.
Flava var ornata, can't remember the location off hand
Rubra Marion Co, GA starting to show some nice color on the lip.
HCW E x F, finally starting to show those white tops.
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?
Feb 12, 2020 0:35:25 GMT -5
DirtyDivisions: Yep, Sarracenia will grow anywhere! In your toilet even...if have the proper amount of light etc...

mikee: I have just joined this forum so will make a few mistakes - So here goes I have recently started my collection and now have some 150 to 200 plants during my first year. I have some very nice flowers spikes and would like to propagate.

mikee: So I would like to know the different properties for colour - vigor - size etc I don't have the time due to my age so would not be able run over many years can someone help or guide me

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.

petrb: However, my web is in Czech, but you can find there many photos

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.
