Many more shots to share S. rubra rubra Brunswick Co. NC 'Leah Wilkerson' x 'Royal Ruby' S. purpurea venosa burkii "Chipola" x typical 'Royal ruby' x Adrian Slack': "Pink Blushed" pitchers "Ruby Lips": you can see the red underside of the lid here too And the skinny, tall pale clone S. x catesbaei "Monster" x purpurea 'Red Ruffles' S. rubra rubra x purpurea purpurea: you can see the distinct veins this plant is getting And, together, the 2 biggest clones of purpurea burkii x rubra jonesii
Things have been starting to be moved outside. Due to the humidity difference between the greenhouse and dry, dry Co air, it'll be a while before I have any new shots of the above plants. However, my first major outdoor plant has woken up fully: S. oreophila Meadowview Since this pic was taken more pitchers have opened, and one that isn't even close to being fully developed is hitting nearly 2 feet tall (or will be soon). The flower in the pic has also fully opened and has been pollinated, and there are 3 more on the way!
Still to come, the x swaniana, rubra alabamensis, and now rubra jonesii viridescens are going to flower! Also, the oreophila pitchers are all beginning to open, along with a pitcher on the flava rugelii x oreo, and soon the swaniana plants will as well. And nearly all the seedlings are adapting, so I give it a month before I see the first fully colored outdoor leaves on them.
Okay, so a good number of these I didn't have anything to do with growing up to this point, but they look nie and haven't wilted in the CO humidity, so I'm posting them: This is an exception, so seed-grown (courtii x rubra alabamensis) x 'Candy Striper' growing fast. A couple really show the courtii in them flava cuprea alata rubrioperculata Ignore the peaty fingers, I was potting.... the new leucophylla 'Tarnok' dreaming of being a Heliamphora S. flava rubricorpora L x Best clone, Liberty Co. FL. Since I got it, the tube has simply continued darkening, but the veins on the lids are staying in stark contrast with the yellow Finally got a flava atropurpurea! It's not fully colored, but even at this point it looks great S. leucophylla Baldwin Co. AL beginning to gain size. There's a good deal of variation here, some skinning and others... well, not
So, looks like summer is actually finally here: New arrival, S. (rubra x oreophila) x purp burkii 2 different crosses in this pot, one on each side: S. 'Night Sky' x 'Adrian Slack' and S. (willisii x areolata) x 'Leah Wilkerson' S. 'Red Neck' OP seedling showing promise Not a Sarr, but one of the companion plants: Viola lanceolata 'Snake Bite's first pitcher 'Judith Hindle' alata Van Cleave, MS Again, 2 crosses: 'Wilkerson's red' x 'Adrian Slack' and flava rubricorpora x 'Adrian Slack' And always the best looking in the pool, oreophila Meadowview
We had a hail storm a couple of weeks ago, and only one plant got hit, surprisingly. However, the plant happened to be my newly acquired S. flava rugelii A x B, and now all I have is a marred pitcher to show: However, many other plants are starting to perk up nicely, including S. (leucophylla x flava) x leucophylla I'm surprised this new pitcher on flava rubri L x Best clone actually has good color after just having been shipped and potted One clone of S. 'Royal Ruby' x 'Adrian Slack' that showed nothing special in the greenhouse, but now sports a notable cherry lip Also from that cross is this pink blushed clone, now far darker in full sun And a very thin pitchered clone So far the first pitcher outside from my other special cross, this is one of the selected "keeper" clones of S. 'Leah Wilkerson' x 'Royal Ruby'
Alright, got a lot of pics for today: First up, my many seedlings of S. alata 'Night' x "red" seedlings. Some are turning to red hoods, others are already showing blushing on these first outdoor pitchers of the season. Each pic is a different seedling Recent addition, S. alata Van Cleave Co. MS 'Judith Hindle' gets some really dark cherry purple lips around here 'Snake Bite', new pitcher first, then a somewhat aged pitcher My big 'Scarlet Belle' x swaniana with an outdoor pitcher. The lid is strangely pointed at the tip SG purpurea burkii SG rubra rubra x purpurea purpurea
Now, variations on the 'Royal Ruby' x 'Adrian Slack seedlings First, the "Pink Blushed" clone: the entire upper pitcher turns this odd salmon color An unnamed clone and another This one has a pink blush on the lid, but not as noticeable as the plant above This clone I've taken to calling "lemon and cherry" due to the bright yellow background color and the heavy cherry red veins "Cherry lip" clone And the one clone of 'Leah Wilkerson' with pic-worthy, open pitchers: clone D newly opened pitcher S. x areolata clone B purpurea burkii x rubra jonesii newly opened clone A x catesbaei "Monster" x purpurea 'Red Ruffles' And not Sarracenia, but in the same pool: clone 1 D. muscipula and an SG offspring with big traps
S. rosea "Chipola" x S. rosea or S. rosea "Chipola" x S. purpurea venosa
It would be so nice to start a new political party. Maybe name it, The Tea Party II for Americans, not racist anti-American douches that hate their neighbors? We need to reform our politics, not make them more partisan and dumber.
Sorry for some blurred photos, some shots were taken when it was getting dark S. alata Van Cleave MS S. x catesbaei "Monster" x purpurea 'Red Ruffles' clone D S. leucophylla typical The better looking clone of S. psittacina Van Cleave MS 'Royal Ruby' x 'Adrian Slack' clone C produced a proper pitcher And clone A of RR x AS, not fully colored but still showing the scarlet veins I liked. This is also the biggest of the seedlings right now The two darkest clones so far of alata Night' x red The reddest flava 'Cinnamon Tube' x 'Adrian Slack' 'Leah Wilkerson' x 'Royal Ruby' clone D is amazing And, 2 different seedlings of 'Cyclops' x 'Edojiman'
flava rugelii A x B 'Daina's delight' 'Snake Bite' is getting better, the hood is reaching immense sizes now rubra rubra Brunswick Co. NC This seedlings of x umlauftiana x leucophylla 'Hurricane Creek White' is showing potential rubra gulfensis 'Crestview, FL" Some variety on seedling leuco Baldwin Co. This first one is the biggest And this one has not only an intense white hood, but also very little color Others x bellii x 'Leah Wilkerson'
'Daina's Delight' always perks up this time of year The thinnest leuco "Baldwin Co. AL" seedling in the batch moorei x leuco 'Snake Bite' 'Mardi Gras' x catesbaei "Monster" x purp 'Red Ruffles' clone A new addition: minor Okee x areolata 2 new additions (thanks Paul!): 'Leah Wilkerson' x flava rubricorpora. One looks like a rubri, the other a rugelii the big rubra jonesii OP (x alata?) rubra rubra x purp purp x catesbaei "Monster" x purp 'Red Ruffles' Clone D. I am surprised how red this thing turned out
S. flava atropurpurea from Mike Wang 'Leah Wilkerson' x 'Royal Ruby' clone B. The small lid seems characteristic of this plant S. x readii Sunbelle Clone 3. Love the pink on this thing S. x catesbaei "Monster" x purpurea 'Red ruffles' clone B looking like the quintessential catesbaei The big 'Scarlet Belle' x swaniana r. rubra x p. purpurea "Monster" x 'Red Ruffles' clone D is very, very red A younger 'Scarlet Belle' x swaniana plant with a lot more color psittacina Van Cleave MS clone A Random clone of 'Royal Ruby' x 'Adrian Slack' "Monster" x 'Red Ruffles' clone A Late pitcher on flava rubri Liberty Co. L x Best Clone The most heavily veined alata 'Night' x "red" seedling This is the biggest seedling of the cross (rubra jonesii viridescens x alata red/black) x 'Adrian Slack'. Not a lot of color yet, but very elegant shape 'Red Sumatra' OP seedlings 'Cyclops' x 'Edojiman' My first serious fall pitcher on any of the leuco Baldwin Co. plants. It just opened today, and is a gorgeous red and white pitcher My biggest x bellii x 'Leah Wilkerson' plant also produced an impressive fall pitcher
