I have a question that I can't seem to find the answer for!
What is the full word of the 'f' in f.viridescens and f. luteoviridis? So this is something that I feel is a bit of a dumb question - but after looking it up online several times I am unable to find much information about this!

"f." is an abbreviation for "forma" which is used to denote a set of members in a species that possess a deviation from the rest. Rankwise, it falls below "var.". In the case of f. viridescens, and f. luteoviridis, the abbreviation marks the anthocyanin-free nature of these plants, but it can be used for other characteristics as well, such as atypically-colored flowers in some genera such as drosera.
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
