Here's a cross between S. rosea and S. leucophylla, rosea being the mother plant or pod parent. I think a lot of us are still wondering, how does the mother plant affect the offspring? In other words, will I get different results if I use the same exact two parent plants, but use the leucophylla as the "pod parent?" I suppose only time will tell...unfortunately, I didn't do the reverse cross.
Here are photos of S. x mitchelliana, taken 10/6/13:
Beautiful pink color:
I have very high hopes for this clone. This is an old, dying trap, but look how far the white travels down the petiole! Makes me think this trap can turn almost solid white under optimal conditions, much like the elusive S. x Moby Dick clone found in Europe:
Good question-since S. purpurea venosa var. burkii was recently changed to S. rosea, it seems like there might be a new name for this hybrid. However, according to Barry Rice, it's still a S. x mitchelliana: www.sarracenia.com/faq/faq5547.html

Since Barry seems to think one of the original parents of S. x mitchelliana was S. rosa, then S. leuclophylla x S. venosa needs a new name. You can't use the same hybrid name for two different hybrids. Here's a paper waiting to happen. Anyone here have expertise to do such a paper? My work in with mollusks mostly and the taxonomy procedures of plants and animals is different so I'm not a good person. I have the ability to write such a paper, but I think someone with a botanical background would be better doing it. You interested Mike?

Interesting. The Savage Garden and cpphotofinder.com both use S. x mitchelliana for S. leucophylla x S. purpurea, but it looks like they don't recognize S. rosea. I guess the S. rosea/S. purpurea ssp. venosa var. burkii debate just needs to be settled.

In the first post of this thread (written almost 4 years ago), there was some speculation that some of these mitchelliana clones can turn almost solid white under optimal conditions, but I think most people thought dude, MIke Wang, you're just exaggerating. What do you think now?

Same clone, but great phenotypic variance being displayed:

kayota: how have I only just discovered this forum when I've been raising CPs for 15 years? I'm just getting back into it after accidentally leaving my plants with a crappy roommate and being unable to get them back

kayota: So all I have rn is S. oreophila but I saw a lovely leucophylla from a local grower at a garden center the other day so I'm gonna pick that up when I can

summit: Hey guys, I'm about to sow some seeds and I was curious to know what everyone thinks 'too hot' for Sarracenia seeds would be? Having them in the dome bumps up the temps a bit.

DirtyDivisions: summit I’ve been fine at a constant 95° F under the dome. Once the tiny seedlings have two pitchers I remove the dome and temps go down.

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!
