today some real highlights!!
All plants are grown from seeds. After a very boring progress in the greenhouse, I took them firstly under 22 hours / 7 days light in a self-designed incubator (one fluorescent lamp, Osmocote fertilizer). Then they became too big and I built a second incubator with two LED lamps and an illumination of 14 hours. I want to prepare them to bring them back to the greenhouse.
Here a S. leucophylla from UK with the description: short, wide mouth, pink lips. A really nice plant!

Thank you for the nice feedback!!!
I am not located in Florida, I am from Austria. However I know the sites around Tallahassee very well. This is because of my collaboration with the FSU. I visit them frequently and if there, I visit sites. If you are interested, we can meet the next time (when I am in THL again, will send you a PM).
The black background is because auf the special flashing technique. I locate the plant somewhere, where any background is far away from the plant. At the camera I adjust the highest value of aperture (in the situation above 22). For the photos above I applied an extension tube of 12 mm (focal length 210 mm). Last but not least I take an external flash and attach that close to the plant. A lot of light will now hit the plant and there will be nothing left to illuminate the background. This is causing the black background.
Off course you can take also any black background e.g. black photo velvet.
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
