Here's another clone I kept back from this batch. It wasn't under lights as long as the first group of mother plants, but it's doing pretty spectacularly for an unflowered seedling. Interesting note - the bigger trap opened in warmer, cloudier weather and is noticeably less colorful than the later, smaller trap that opened in cooler, sunny conditions.

A tad blurry, my apologies. Fall traps got jacked by something. Not quite sure what. Couldn't find any signs of sucking insects, nor are its neighbors affected (as you can tell by the photobombing HCW E and Bloodmoon in the background ). Nights haven't dipped below 50 during development so cold damage doesn't seem likely either.
Check out the girth, and the fat lip on it though! I'm hoping it's a hint of what it'll look like in proper form next year, but I'll just attribute it to the wonky development in the meantime .
Got mine from Calen this week. It is absolutely gargantuan. For reference, it is in a 5x5x7" hydrofarm pot. It needed 5 cotton balls to be gagged. Looking forward to growing this one out, especially here in Florida.
Looking great joey! Can’t wait to see what it does next year. It was in a bit of a shaded position before I sent it to you, so I expect it to be much more brightly colored for you in that unmatched FL sun!
Oh I look forward to growing it too! Hopefully its growth is unimpeded and it doesn't shrink next season, id love to see it grow even bigger next fall. Not sure if this one will have decent spring pitchers or wimpy ones, but the fall pitchers have already proven amazing. I have a feeling (given the size of its pot) it's gonna be a heavy drinker, I'll have to be careful that it doesn't dry out. But anyways, the Florida sun is essentially a death ray in late summer, but all of my leucophyllas (except for a few new arrivals) produced fantastic fall traps.
Looking great kirkauburn! Seriously can't wait to see the updates on these for fall 2021! The average quality in the batch was very high (I honestly don't think there were any dogs at all!) and a ton of gorgeous clones went out to all you lovely folks over the last couple years.
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
