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!

Here’s a S. leucophylla “Purple Lips” x flava var. ornata – Select Clone that was bred by Phil Faulisi. As the season ¬†advances, the colors will intensify and become much bolder.

Around the Greenhouse

As things are warming up here, I’m seeing more growth and color manifesting out of the debris of last season. Yeah, it’s quite a refreshing sight! Here’s a few shots from the Asylum for your viewing pleasure…

Buds!

Awww yeah! Signs of life are appearing everywhere! The transition from the cool winter to warmer days has begun. Flower buds are a most welcome sight; the creative juices get flowing at the possibility of some great crosses. Here are a few spherical beauties getting ready to explode into those magnificent blooms that I so look forward to seeing each year.

Sarracenia ‘Reptilian Rose’ x (flava var. rubricorpora x leucophylla) – Clone 11

It’s fun watching these S. ‘Reptilian Rose’ hybrids mature. Some of the crosses have that angular peristome that have carried over from S. ‘Reptilian Rose’, while others don’t. Here’s one cross that was done by Dr. Travis H. Wyman between S. ‘Reptilian Rose’ and (flava var. rubricorpora x leucophylla). To keep track of them, I numbered the plants out of each cross. The one below is number 11. It kinda reminds me of a stop sign or octagon when viewed from the top.
