Sarracenia leucophylla "Red"
Sarracenia leucophylla “Red” – clone received from Phil Faulisi. Fall pitcher recently opened and pitcher will get a darker shade of red as it matures. I really enjoy that dipping lip that it has.

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.

I received this Sarracenia alata from fellow grower Richard Stroop, who calls it Sarracenia alata “Red Mustache” cuz it has, well… a red mustache. Wish I could grow a ‘stache that good looking.

Homecoming

There’s no place like home. Like I mentioned in my last post, I deeply enjoyed my visit up north (thanks again Mark!), but it feels great to be back home and with the plants again. Below are some photos from my first day back in the Asylum. A few traps here and there… as well as a few blooms, and a few buds that I’m really excited to work with! Enjoy!

FINALLY, a BUD! After 2 years with no bloom, I finally get one this year!

Hope it survives and actually blooms for me though…

Sarracenia 'Smurf'
Ok, I know. It’s a freak. S. purpurea “Smurf” has a bud.
This should be interesting.

Got another one with a bud! I wonder if I should cross with the Smurf? Hmm…

Widemouth Hybrid Update

Sarracenia flava "Widemouth" x (leucophylla "red" x minor var. okefenokeensis)Sarracenia flava “Widemouth” x (leucophylla “red” x minor var. okefenokeensis)

Yeah, with this wide open mouth, they look like they’re saying “AHHHH!!!” This was one of the crosses I did back in 2009, and so far it’s recovered quite nicely. Pitchers still look good this late as they put them up rather late in the season. I guess that’s just one of the side-effects of moving from those low light levels mid year. The little windows on the upper portion of the pitcher (called areoles) from the influence of the father plant (S. leucophylla “red” x minor var. okefenokeensis) carried over quite nicely. It’s subtle, but it’s there. The wide mouth influence of the mother plant also is quite apparent in this cross. They look kinda hungry…
