An Ornata Cross

Here’s a rather lovely and sinister looking Sarracenia flava var. ornata cross that was done by none other than my Sarracenia-bro-dude, Mike Wang. I like how the pitcher tube is heavily brushed in a rich red. The dark network of veins run up through the hood accented by the gold backdrop on the lid adds a nice touch to this pitcher. Awesome work, Mike!

Inverted Veined Moorei

Here’s an update on a beautiful and unique moorei cross by James Soe Nyun. (S. flava var maxima x leucophylla “Burgundy” is the cross.) It’s a little behind in development and coloration compared to this time last year, but the plant is still doing well. The red coloration is only now starting and it contrasts quite nicely with those green veins. It’s been noted that using select clones of S. flava var. maxima will yield this “inverted veins” effect. I did a couple crosses both last year and this year using a few S. flava var. maxima clones so we’ll see what comes out of it. In the meantime, enjoy a few shots of this fantastic moorei. Beautiful work, James!

Lidless Freaks

Carnivorous plants are in a category of their own, and within this special syndicate of bizarre botanical badassery there are those plants that are, well… just plain freaks. I’m talking about some of these lidless ones. Some may even apply the adjective “fugly to these curiosities. But hey – to me, they’re beautiful in their own unconventional way. Keep it freaky.
