Reptile Crossing Revisited

Hello fellow grower folks! With spring here, many pitchers are just exploding into growth. From the seedlings, I’m being constantly surprised with what’s coming forth.  Here’s an update on how these babies are doing from The Reptile.  For those of you who don’t know about Phil Faulisi’s S.’Reptilian Rose’ (a freekin’ rad hybrid), you can read up on it here.  I’ve first mentioned about the reptile crossings done by Dr. Travis Wyman in this post about 8 months ago in August, 2010.  The seedlings have gone dormant since then, had their pitchers trimmed back, and now that it’s growing season —  the pitchers are coming back with a vengeance.  There are still quite a few seedling plants sending out pitchers that I will update you on later once those have developed, but for now, this is the insanity that is going on.  Again, special thanks to Travis and Phil for their inspirational Sarracenia madness.

  1. I love the second one!! 🙂
    Also the last one has a nice pink lid..
    They are all very nice!! How old are these seedlings?

  2. Beautiful shots, as usual. Third one’s my favorite, with the light on the top rim. You make it look easy, which it is not, as I am learning.

  3. Dude, you seriously have the best pitchers! I need to buy some for my lackluster collection…

    • Wasup Jenn! I’ll hook you up homie! We’ll talk. A lot of these exemplary ones will take time to get distribute though as they are to be propagated via division to maintain the genetic characteristics… Oh, the joy’s of breeding… 🙂

    Holy Cow! I am late to the party, but those are some fantastic looking progeny!! -Chris aka Woodnative

    • Hi Chris! Thanks for your kind comments! I can’t wait to see the stuff you are working on as well! Your hybrids here are looking really good too! Hope you’ve been well. Thanks for stoppin’ by 🙂
