Sarracenia “Orange Glow” x ‘Adrian Slack’

In 2009 I crossed S. moorei “Orange Glow” and S. ‘Adrian Slack’. Not sure exactly what I was expecting by crossing two moorei plants together, but I can say that breeding projects involving S. ‘Adrian Slack’ have yielded some fascinating (aaaaand… even *not* so fascinating) results. I’m somewhat partial to the select youngster in the photograph below for its delicate and faded pastel color scheme. Don’t let it fool you though. This plant is still a hungry cylindrical savage.

  1. Its a nice pale clone, but lacking in “oomph”. ‘Adrian Slack’ is a beautiful clone, but when you really assess it, you have to recognize that it is itself a fairly “pastel” cultivar, so its going to breed a percentage of relatively colorless offspring. Do you happen to have Brooks Garcia’s ‘Blood Moon’? (I think that is what he has called his dark red Moorei) I have it and it is a nearly solid dark red with Adrian Slack form. I mated it with ‘Leah Wilkerson’ this year!

    • Hey Paul! Thanks! I’m kinda gravitating to the pale/pastel/porcelain looking things – just another nice “flavor” of plants to have. It’s a nice contrast to the loud plants. :) Yes, I have a few S. “Blood Moons”! Great plant. Your cross sounds like it should yield some phenomenal plants! Please keep me posted on how that turns out for you! :D
