Hi all, I have a plant that looks very similar to S. x 'Adrian Slack'. the pitchers have a flava var. rugelli throat ant a bright white leucophylla lid. the flower is a reddish yellow and the petals are an orangey color. the plant is slightly over a foot and a half tall:
Tell me if you think it is the real S. x Adrian Slack. Thanks! -David

NO I did not buy it as an Adrian Slack.I bought it at the last Bay Area Carnivorous Plant Society Meeting as an unknown sarracenia the guy that that sold it to me (his name was Stephen Davis) had no Idea what it was and none of the pitchers were open at that time. Here is a pic of the tag:

I doubt this is Adrian Slack. Although I have it, I'm pretty sure all divisions are accounted for. However, I have screwed up before, you might have gotten very, very lucky! In any case, if I'd sold this at the show, it would have been for more than I sold it at the meeting for, that's for sure! This is a beautiful plant!!!! I hope you enjoy it!
I don't grow Adrian Slack, so I can't really comment on what it looks like before it reaches its full potential in terms of size and coloration. We've all seen pictures of Adrian Slack at its best: Neon red lip and purplish red veins on a wide, arrestingly white hood. That's not quite how I would describe your plant, but a small division may only hint at the greatness it can potentially achieve, and like I said, I do not grow Adrian Slack (yet).
Guillaume: What are the tell-tale signs for you that identifies this as Adrian Slack? Just looking to be educated!
David, Your most recent photo makes me rethink my original assessment, but until those pitchers reach their full pigmentation, it's still up in the air. Can you please post update photos in another month-to-six-weeks time? Those will be much more revealing. How tall are those pitchers, by the way? 'Adrian Slack' is a mid-range Moorei in size, generally dwarfed by plants like 'Leah Wilkerson'.

It's still Best guess no matter the assurances you get from people I would not declare it anything but a possible in naming it and make sure anyone you pass it on to knows as well it could muddy up a lot of future crosses in naming it AS when it is not.
summit: @dirtydivisions Thanks for that! I'm sitting around 87-88F with the dome fully sealed but I wasn't doing that and sacrificing humidity to keep it cooler but I'll go ahead and close it down now!

mikee: Thanks you chofah, there is a great video from The Pitcher Project with Phil Faulisi this was what I was looking for. However it still appears to be wait and see what results come from the cross. Many thanks

Willy: It would be rather silly to expect totally predictable results from a cross. The individual plants grown from the seeds will vary, sometimes quite a bit, even with carefully protected hand pollination. If you open polinate, the variety may be even greater.

superstressed: Recently purchased a s. purpurea from Mike and I am so impressed with the quality of the plant that arrived. My Purpurea is now one of the larger plants in my collection! Mike also included an beautiful Flava var. for free. I will absolutely buy again.
