Back Home

Home sweet home! I recently returned from a family vacation up in the beautiful Pacific Northwest. It’s nice to be back, but I really do miss it up there. I got the chance to visit Karen Oudean and Jerry Addington and meet up with a couple other talented growers. (Kinjie and Phaedra – great to meet you! Brie – I’m sorry we missed you!) And yes, I’ll be featuring photos from that visit in an upcoming post, so stay tuned!

For now, here’s a few snapshots from within The Asylum. Great to be home.

I returned home packing my suitcase with a few plants from Jerry. (Thanks again, Jerry!) The plants have made the trip back safe and sound and have been potted up. Here’s a couple of the plants that made it back with me.

Sarracenia 06-02
Sarracenia “06-02″  - sibling to Sarracenia “Jerry’s Goliath”
Parentage is uncertain, however Jerry suspects that S. ‘Doreen’s Colossus’ is involved somehow with Sarracenia “06-02″ and Sarracenia “Jerry’s Goliath.”

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.
