Sarracenia “Blood Moon” x luteola
“It’s not about what it is, it’s about what it can become.”
-Dr. Seuss, The Lorax
An update on the the pod of a cross I did this year. It looks swollen and feels solid so I am very hopeful that there’s seed in there. Who really knows though until I crack it open later in the year. Sarracenia “Blood Moon” is a richly colored plant created by Brook Garcia. The parentage of S. “Blood Moon” is S. “Wilkerson’s Red Rocket” x flava var. rubricorpora. With this cross I am hoping for a richly colored mitchelliana looking plant that has hidden anthocyanin freedom potential. I have plans to eventually use whatever comes out of this pod in more anthocyanin free lines of Sarracenia breeding. I know it doesn’t look like much right now, but just like any plant that is to be – it has to start somewhere.
