The cuprea SFA-011 D JPR "Heavy veined. Very brightly colored form of copper-red with strong red veins". The network of exterior veins creates an interesting contrast under the lid. Over time, the entire upper part of the pitcher becomes brown. Depending on the taste, it can be called cuprea-ornata or ornata-cuprea….
Moments of great vulnerability for this little spider: under the lid of a var.cuprea flava it has just tied down to its web. Like all arthropods, it must moult to grow. Its shell begins to crack "on the back", then it extricates itself painfully. First the abdomen then the cephalothorax and then, the hardest and longest, the legs. Then become very soft, she lets herself fall and must wait for her keratin shell to harden. During these long minutes it is at the mercy of any predator passing by…
Casting error for this flava : no label and a correspondent who has never given news again => The exact identity of the plant therefore remains unknown. However, we can reasonably propose an x 'Orange fire'. The plant opens with a very pronounced ornata pattern on the whole pitcher, inside and outside. Then it quickly takes on a warm orange-brown coloring which works wonders in the light and completes the palette of green lemon-yellow, red and dark purple in the neighborhood.
"Refueling stages" for this butterfly : on flava 'Goldie', atropurpurea dark red and finally on F8MK "Copper top, Green Swamp, NC. W. Plant is an intergrade from with var. Maxima so the plant has a pure green tube with a veinless copper top ".
The majestic (to my taste) ipF19 alias F80MK. Magnificent large flava with a yellow-green gradient throughout the urn, a brown spot under the lid and a hem on the lips to perfect the look. Thanks to Guillaume for the discovery !!

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
