Progression of, what is labeled, S. 'Blood Moon' x 'Saurus'. This was purchased seed. Due to my sloppiness, the seed of this and others could possibly have been mixed up a little. Whatever the case, the plant definitely has 'Saurus' in it, as during the sowing session, only 'Saurus' hybrids were being planted.
The mouth openings are nicely round on every pitcher, with a stout appearance thus far.
For the record, I'm not a leucophylla grower, as flavas are my thing. However, I just couldn't pass up this listing on eBay. Received in the mail today, exactly as advertised. For a leucophylla, its appearance must be to a certain caliber before I'll grow it, not to mention my lack of space for collection expansion. This guy looks wicked enough in my eyes to warrant growing it, especially considering its young age.
The top one is a Green Flava....its usually awake well before anything else....the bottom one is a hardware store minor I lucked a few years ago. Its rare to see Minors anywhere other than 1 or 2 major mail order nurserys.
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!

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
