You ordered the same seeds too. I just got those seeds in the fridge last week.
My seeds collected from my own Goldie x op are germinating now... my other attempted crosses of green monster x Goldie and a moorei x Goldie both molded out in stratification. Though cracking open some of the seeds ... they all seemed empty. Dunno what happened. I had even split all three of my crosses into 9 separate bags and treated each one. All the Goldie x op were fine ... the six other bags molded.

All my Goldie x self are about 1-2 months old right now and the color scheme on the baby pitchers is very similar to Sarracenia Manky (I would link an image but it appears that the links themselves are down, but Google images has a few pics of Manky). I'm really excited to see how these ones turn out.

I have three different Goldie crosses from the year before last and more seeds set this year. So far there is not one that has come through with the sought after colour. I may be just unlucky of course, but wil grow them out for another couple of years to see how what I get, although they the yellow colour is unlikely to suddenly appear..... sadly. Cheers Steve
I didnt have any pictures, so I decided to go out and find some, bearing in mind that this is the UK, they are dormant, I am an engineer rather than having and artistic bent and only have a mobile phone there is not a lot to see but here are some pics below of a couple of moorei x 'Goldie' variants. I have other trays of crosses but can't dig them out (can't be bothered to search through the trays) but they tell the same story, whilst they are 'green' with differing shapes and colours depending on what they are crossed with, they certainly aren't yellow.

Apologies for the delay on adding pictures, I've had a busy couple of weeks.
The seedlings have taken an interesting turn. At first they had red tubes and a little bit of yellow/gold near the tops of the pitchers.
Now, the new leaves are actually a tannish brown color - they look like a dried up, old dead pitcher would on a different plant - except they're still very firm, solid, and functional. I assume they'll turn red but who knows, I'm excited to see what happens.
Now its warming up finally over here, whilst moving plants about and to outside I have come across more seedlings, the first is some Goldie x self (not the cleverest of crosses and only one pictured) which look as if they could go yellow (parent plant behind) and some crosses with flava maxima that dont.

It may be that the golden color is from a recessive gene, and if so, goldie x self is probably the only one which have any chance of producing that color. Although the childens of Goldie should be carrier for that gene, or those genes.
but I don't know much about sarracenia genetics, this apply to genetic in general. For a recessive trait to show up, both parents must carry it and the offspring must have both genes for it.
From your experimentation, it is obvious that this color is not from a dominant gene or about half the seedlings would have it.

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
