I was turned onto this forum by Drummer230, and I come to see many familiar names. I guess none of us are very creative with names, are we? I'm looking forward to learning more about Sarrs and Sarr accessories. Take care, Chef
Awesome, glad you came to TSF! You may find that you acquire a lot more sarrs when you come here...
That's why I'm here, because I have gotten so many new ones, 14 in the past couple of weeks. I got 3 from a member on another forum (one is a big Purp ssp Purp), 2 from Drummer230 that he said he just had laying around (1 medium sized potted Alata and the other an almost 18 inch tall Rubra cross division), and frickin' 9 from Xanthoparmelia from yet another forum. Xantho offered me a few (his words, "a few") cull seedlings, and he sends 9 plants, the biggest is 9 inches tall. Seedling my butt! I know why he did it, he wants me to grow these things up to see if these crosses he made are going to turn out good, nice, or cultivar quality, and Sarrs seem to like the growing conditions in Tennessee. He and I both won a giveaway for a division of a Hummers Hammerhead. We both received them at the same time. He said his is doing OK, but mine just took off running. In about four months mine has gone from a rhizome to over 30 pitchers, the biggest being almost a foot long.
Everything happens for a reason. Sometimes the reason is I make bad decisions.

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
