Hi all, First I wanted to thank Meizzwang for sharing his experience with us. It's greatly appreciated. So I'm writing today because there's something that's bugging me. Sulfur does indeed point to anoxic anaerobic condition. But 2-4 inch of water in the tray seems too shallow of a water column and one would expect oxygen to easily diffuse through...
That gets me to another question. For people having rizome rot issue, what is the water and soil temperature when that happens? Water oxygenation goes down as its temperature goes up.
This seems similar to the Darlingtonia and Heliamphora root temperature issue...

I noticed a small brown spot on the top of my HCW clone E, where it was on a callused break point from a previous dividing. Did the poke test with a pair of clean tweezers, and the surface seemed rather soft. Sterilized my knife and removed the soft bits, then applied a systemic fungicide.
This is currently how it looks and it's now dry and firm when performing the poke test.
Been keeping the water level below 1/4" and top watering every morning after allowing the plants to dry out for the night, but the clone E seems to the one unlucky plant to attract what remaining fungus or bacteria was in the vicinity.
I wonder if top watering in the mornings may have caused it? But the other leucos have not caught any, along with folks here reporting that they've had no trouble with top watering either.
Hopefully I nipped it in the bud, and that it was only at the surface there.
Rot can enter through open wounds on the rhizome, but the portion here was already bark like, so would anyone happen to know if it's common for these callused portions to go soft like this?
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: 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.

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!

sanguinearocks101: What are good plants to make hybrids with S. luecophylla with? Im looking for dark colors.

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
