Young and Green

Here’s some young green (anthocyanin free) plants! There’s still a lot of evolving to do, but so far, so good!

Sarracenia (rubra ssp. jonesii AF x minor var. okefenokeensis) x "Green Monster"

x “Green Monster”
This AF plant is the result of crossing one AF recessive plant with an anthocyanin free plant. This seedling is the only one that survived the multiple moves. Glad that it was the AF one that survived!

…and here are a few AF recessive babies that should be fun to work with in future breeding projects!

I think the little seedling that photo-bombed this photo may be S. “Green Monster” – F2. It’s possible that some of pollen from the pod parent may have gotten on the stigma. At this point, it certainly looks that way.

  1. Looking really good Rob. It will be so much fun to see these evolve. I just LOVE AF!!!!!!!

  2. SO much Greenness!
    AF moorei’s are looking good Rob.
    So many options,you can wonder all day what will come out of some of your AF crosses.
    Keep the dream alive.

  3. So here’s something that I’ve been wondering: Do you find that there’s any detriment to the plants being AF? Like, do you notice that they attract more, less, or different bugs? I figured they’re probably brightly colored for a reason but perhaps it doesn’t really make any difference for most plants, especially in a greenhouse/garden environment.

  4. Dude..I know. Since the epihany I’ve had with AF…I totally get it.
