I believe P.lutea both self pollinates and spreads by stolons. I started out with one in the bog about 4 years ago and now there are several flowering plants out there.

N. izumiae x trusmadiensis looks like an amazing cross. Unfortunately it's so expensive....
By the way, you posted the 'Lady Luck' pic twice, there's no truncata there :)

Thanks!Received them already planted in the dome and I've had them since early June. They adjusted immediately to my windowsill and are both starting to push out leaves and inflating pitchers above the dome. (Southern window with early morning/afternoon direct sun)

^Whoops. Guess the tapatalk account isn't the same as my usual one. ???
Enjoy the pictures everyone. Apologies for the gut... had a bunch of dim sum an hour prior to visiting.


Part One!

A particularly well grown S. 'Carolina Yellow Jacket' Didn't exactly like this at first but now it's starting to grow on me. If you feel like trading near the end of the season I wouldn't mind sending a 'Ginormous' your way, Kevin. ;)

Sarr table. That red one is the oddest 'Cobra Nest' I've ever seen. Wouldn't mind trading for a piece!

VFTs. Interesting that these were so much redder than the ones in the other greenhouse.

I usually abhor any psitt hybrids, but these ones crossed with S. rosea were undeniably beautiful. Wish I could have met who was responsible for these!

Dude! Those pics are awesome. Thanks for sharing. It was definitely the most fun day I've had in a while. And you got all the IDs totally 100% spot-on, too! I would love to trade, but unfortunately I've curtailed most of that since the department finally decided it could spare a bit of funding to assist me in developing the collection.

And you know... folks tell me I get wayyy too excited when I talk plants, and it appears from the hand gesturing that they just might be right. On my end, I wonder how folks could NOT be so overwhelmingly excited by plants that their blood pressure skyrockets into the next dimension.

You will also notice that the Sarrs and VFTs in the research room are also significantly more red than their counterparts in the display room. That's the result of feeding (or lack thereof).

I'm not at liberty to mention much about the nature of the research, but the plants y'all are seeing represent about 15-20 years of breeding. We have parents, F1 hybrids, F2 hybrids/backcrosses, and a generation of F3 babies where the F2s are crossed amongst themselves, amongst the parents, and amongst all other Sarracenia species. The F3s are where it really, really gets interesting.

Why so many x courtiis? Well, all I can say it that is has to do with the morphological and biotic differences between an enclosed pitcher (psitt) and an open morphology (purp).

I'm glad those seeds germinated for you. I've only got a couple coming up, and am questioning the viability of the seeds I sowed.

At least you got some. That's definitely a good sign.
