Reptile Crossing!

Sarracenia ‘Reptilian Rose’  is definately one of my all time favorite plants.  S. ‘Reptilian Rose’ was created by a good friend and breeding mentor, the legend: Phil Faulisi. (DUDE!) More information on the plant can be found here: http://www.carnivorousplants.org/cpn/Species/v38n1p12_22.html#Reptilian The following photo is an example of what S. ‘Reptilian Rose’ looks like. (Same plant as in my gravitar, to the right) 😉

The following photos are seed grown crosses of S. ‘Reptilian Rose’ that were created by fellow carnivorous cohort, Dr. Travis Wyman. (Thanks Travis!) These photos were taken in June/July of this year (2010) and seedlings are just a little under 2 years old.  I began to germinate them indoors back during the December of 2008.  You can see some variation and some similarities.  Keep in mind that these plants are still young and still have a lot of growing up to do. Some are showing tell-tale signs of the angular nectar roll, but we won’t really know how pronounced that characteristic will be until these pitchers are fully mature.  And I haven’t noticed any scents just yet… but I’ll keep you posted on my findings and I’ll post photos now and then as the plants mature.  😉
