Sarracenia ‘Reptilian Rose’ x (flava v. rubricorpora x leucophylla)

Here’s some S. ‘Reptilian Rose’ hybrid diversity for your enjoyment! Below are just a few of the siblings from the same pod of S. ‘Reptilian Rose’ x (flava v. rubricorpora x leucophylla). This cross was done by Dr. Travis H. Wyman. You can see some of the S. ‘Reptilian Rose’ characteristics showing up in the progeny.  S. ‘Reptilian Rose’ (created by Phil Faulisi) is one of my favorite plants because of that jagged nectar roll and also the sweet rose-scent it emits. That angular nectar roll characteristic has transferred onto some of the offspring. Other crosses display more of the influence of the pollen parent plant, a moorei. They didn’t get a chance to develop as much as I would of liked this year because of those low light levels earlier, but I am looking forward to comparing their growth next season. Below are only a few of the crosses, but again it illustrates the rich and great diversity contained within a seed pod.
