These pics are from a few days ago, but meh, close enough! It's been un-seasonably cold the past few weeks (days not going above low 60's and nights in the 40's), but it's supposed to warm up soon. Plants seem to be growing well despite the cold weather:
Oreophilas seem to not even notice the cold weather, maybe these should be considered if you're thinking about breeding cold tolerant varieties or hybrids that do better under cooler climates:
A few to help kick off May. First up is 'Goldie'. I posted photos of it before, but this thing just keeps getting better and better. S. leuco burgundy x minor giant ‘pink clone’ Vintner's Treasure Ares Flava Var. Atropurpurea MK F27a Black water river FL These pitchers opened only two days ago and have a way to go before the color is totally infused. Flava Var. Ornata LW5 This is another newly opened pitcher which will continue to color up. Last years pitchers were outstanding. Mike Wang's fantastic Flava Var. (Extreme Red Throat) Bay Co. FL
Damn that sucks! Flickr has been solid for almost a decade, now it's a game of finding another photo hosting site. Edit: google drive doesn't allow 3rd party hosting. Going to check out: postimage.io/ (Unlimited Bandwidth, Free to use but compresses image)
lensdump.com (Unlimited Bandwidth, Raw Uncompressed Image, Keeps Exif Data, More features for registered users and Free to use, 100MB max image file size)
cubeupload.com/ (Amazing and simple interface, Unlimited Bandwidth, Raw Uncompressed images, Free to use, 5MB max image file size)

Damn that sucks, might have a lot of broken pics on this forum pretty soon.
Here's a test, uploaded a pic to google, these guys probably won't get bought out for a while, LOL
Dang, that sucks, especially for seeing the documented history on this forum that I have relied on in learning about Sarracenia and this group. Hopefully we don't get another photo*ucket hostage negotiation.
I think everyone's freaking out a touch too much abut the SmugMug purchase; the Flickr site will be put onto SmugMug's infrastructure, but the current plan is still that Flickr will remain as its own site, free hosting of images etc.
Those who are crazy enough to think they can change the world, are the ones that do.
gotsarrs said: Damn Bristol, Your plants are looking great! I love the trap growing out of the drainage hole. LOL Can I come and live in your backyard?
My backyard is a POS. I wouldn't live back there. Nothin but black widows, roaches and the annual raccoon turd. Do y-all know "Racc's turd in the same spot and will keep turding there until it drive you nuts! and they'll do that with-out asking permission. I have to spray critter repellent to keep them from building up their turd mounds. DOn't get me wrong I love to see animals in my yard no matter how ugly it is. I don't mind racc's coming around they don't wreck the plants, and they're very cute animals to watch from the window. Rabbits - Sometimes I'll have five-six white tail jack rabbits in my front yard every morning eating grass. Buts that was until I sprinkle systemic fungicide to prevent yellow blades and to keep the shrooms down. Rabbits are like "Spppittt, YUCK! Taste like shit. This place sucks! Let's go the other house." I haven't seen them since.
Thanks gotsarrs for the comp! Growing out from the drain holes has happen before but only with strong vigorous plants like that moorei-Pensacola Fields, FL. That trap is bound to rot once the flood waters rise in the basin. It's a huge heavy undergrowth which means I need divide and replant to prevent infection. Once the summer heat comes around that undergrowth will die and lead to rot. I've been away from my crops for quite sometime and that's what I saw only when I pull the pot for trimming.
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.
Oct 5, 2019 20:28:05 GMT -5
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: 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.
