S. minor var. okefenokeensis also has this trait: around the mouth area, there are sections on the trap that are dark green, while the rest of the body is a regular green color, if that makes sense. Prior to growing out this clone, I've never seen it in alata, ever! Most of the times, when you think of green alatas, I personally think "BOOOOOOOORRRRRRRING," but once you get into the shapely or strange color forms, the species becomes fascinating!
With minor giants, that unique green face characteristic is dominant in many of the crosses, so it's pretty exciting to see this unique trait on an alata as well! Will it be a dominant trait with crosses as well? Who knows....
It's really hard to capture the color you see in person, but you can sorta see the green face on this plant! Maybe I'll get some better pics in the future, we'll see! Pics taken 8/16/20:
You can kinda...sorta...maybe see it better here?
back view, on the left and right hand side of the "neck," the darker green color is slightly visible:
For some reason, the green alatas are my favorite color form. I guess because they are almost fluorescent and stick out like a highlighter. They really seem to glow amongst the vegetation in the wild. Thanks for pointing the green coloration out! I've never noticed it before.
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
