Sarracenia leucophylla "Juju Lips" x flava "Widemouth"

This was a cross I did back in 2010 using Sarracenia leucophylla “Juju Lips” as the pod parent and Sarracenia flava “Widemouth” as the pollen parent.  S. leucophylla “Juju Lips” was a term coined by Jacob Farin of Sarracenia Northwest. It’s Hawaiian slang for “big lips.” This leucophylla has a nice little spout action that gives it a proportionately larger looking lip when compared to the rest of the pitcher. Sarracenia flava “Widemouth” also has a larger than average “spout” in proportion to the pitcher structure. I wanted to combine both of these characteristics in this cross and my goal was to come up with a moorei (a S. flava/leucophylla cross) with a wide dipping spout. Below are a couple youngsters. They’re still young and there are slight hints expressed in the plants of what I was targeting. It is my hope that the wide/deep lipped characteristic is expressed more as they mature. So far, I kind of like what I am seeing.

  1. That is a very attractive plant, Rob!

  2. Dude that is a fantastic white moorei. It should be even more stunning in 2 or 3 years.
