I have a box hopefully coming today, when it does, i will post a thread called 'A average order from Mike" so you can see the condition of plants he sends. They are truely amazing, it will be the box, unpacking, and potting.
I got my plants yesterday. I ordered a rosea mobile AL, and a flava rugelii clone A. Both are huge, the flava is almost as big as my hand. Mike is super generous with extera plants, this time i got 2 cute little Roseas from Baldwin Co, Al. I was going to do my photo tuturial thing, but i accidently left my camera outside in rain and it is know in rice. Opps"
Davida-I'd recommend lifting that Tattnall Co, GA plant up from the soil just a little bit. It seems to be planted a little bit deep, and it could potentially rot (while not likely, planting slightly too deep can cause rot issues).

Have to say the last 18 months I have been buying up Mike's Sarracenia and I have yet to find a reason to even seek a new source. This last order was as flawless as the rest of them. Hope to return the favor one day Mike.
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
