Sarracenia flava – Anthocyanin Free

Here are some examples of AF (Anthocyanin Free, or all green) Sarracenia flava. Now, these are not to be confused with S. flava var. maxima, which still contains anthocyanin, and therefore S. flava var. maxima is not an AF plant. The red pigment in S. flava var. maxima can be visible in the grow points of the new pitchers that are forming, as well as on damaged portions of the plant (such as pitchers, phyllodia, and/or flower stalk.) The plants below are still young and unfortunately have not bloomed for me yet. Maybe next year? I have hopes to use them in future breeding projects and create new lines of AF flava. Fingers crossed!

  1. Bringing sexy back! Antho free plants display the pitcher’s elegant architecture so wonderfully. Thanks for sharing Rob!

    • Sup Calen! Thanks so much! Yeah, I really dig the AF plants – not only do they display the architecture so wonderfully, but they have this otherworldly elegant glow that I wish the photos did justice to. Hope you and the plants are all well bro! :)

  2. These are awesome! When did AF flava with locale info show up? I was only aware of ‘Suspicion”.
