Thought I’d share some pictures from today: (Rubra x oreophila) x purple burkeii
I have this plant as well and have been suspicious of it forever, and I think your image confirms it for me: this is definitely not a (rubra x oreophila) x rosea plant. None of those species are gonna pop up areoles like seen here (and can see on my own plants), and it's way too slender and "flava-esque" to be an F1 rosea cross. Only problem is almost no way to decipher exactly what's really in it...
Those who are crazy enough to think they can change the world, are the ones that do.
Time for a couple photos. I'll admit, I've kind of neglected my collection this summer as I haven't been able to find the time for them. Plants are still performing and the fall pitchers are getting primed for their show.
Somehow this Wilkerson's Red Rocket is sending up good sized pitchers, even though I just received it this spring from calen
I am completely enanmored with this Wes Buckner creation, Red/White Flop Top x Red Cobra. It is super vigorous, with great shapely lids and really showing some good color this year. Trying to decide whether to divide or put in bigger pot next year.
another glamour shot
Outdoor bog is finally doing something. Seemed like an off year until recently, might need to freshen up the peat for next year.
Some Eric Morrow creation, need to dive into the label to figure it out.
I’m living in crispy top central now because it’s been quite hot this past week. Yes, this is climatologically the hottest part of the year, but every single day in the past week has had a high of 104 or 105. It hasn’t been terribly humid — dewpoint of 60-65 or so — and there’s still been not a drop of rain. Hopefully we get some storms tonight.
The only thing without many crispy tops is 'Dixie Lace'. I thought this photo was fun:
I haven’t shared a photo of my most vigorous sarr in a while. It’s a NOID plant that doesn’t get terribly colorful: it goes between mostly green with light veination to mostly green with marginally more veination and a faint coppery top. It is incredibly vigorous, though. In only two seasons, it’s nearly tripled the number of growth points, each of which holders a good number of pitchers at all times. You can see the crispiness even on newer pitchers.
I thought the crispy topped pitcher on this readii went nicely with the colors on the less crispy ones: Other things that look better include one of my new flavas and the NOID that’s probably a leuco:

We've had an alarmingly hot and humid summer in north FL, so most of my plants sulked or shot off phyllodia the last few months. Now that the days are shortening, my leucos have decided to send up their fall traps. Most of these are local rescues from Liberty and Franklin Co, FL.

Life has been busy and I've been scarce around here, but the plants are doing great and starting to ramp up for fall. Here are a few shots from around the yard for everybody! It's flopped-over-pitcher season: Untitled by Calen Hall, on Flickr AF minor contrasting beautifully with typical minor minors: Untitled by Calen Hall, on Flickr Not sure if these are full fall traps or more of a summer set, but this Washington Co. AL leuco is looking excellent: Untitled by Calen Hall, on Flickr This areolata from Jackson Co. MS has such potential! It's pretty much 100% alata in shape, but turns almost solid white: Untitled by Calen Hall, on Flickr Lid shot, this is a different, newer trap that hasn't whitened fully yet: Untitled by Calen Hall, on Flickr A very beautiful selection from the alata (Night x Black Throat) seed batch: Untitled by Calen Hall, on Flickr Untitled by Calen Hall, on Flickr
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
