New pitcher seems to glow against the older pitchers of the season.

Sarracenia leucophylla and friends

This year is really flying by. It felt like it was only moments ago where I had fresh spring pitchers and flowers in the Asylum… now I’m seeing more S. leucophylla and S. leucophylla hybrids starting to show their pitchers off. Tis’ the season! Here’s a few S. leucophylla and friends to greet the arrival of August…

Still a very young seedling. They all used to be uber crowded in one pot…
that is until I placed them in group trays. Now they’ll have a little bit more time before getting crowded again. See the second photo of this post. There’s a few others out of this batch that are showing some really nice promise. Stay tuned. :)

One of my crosses from a couple of years ago. Showing some character now.

The Sarracenia leucophylla influence via S. ‘Kilimanjaro’ shines through on
new fresh pitchers, but as it ages it darkens to a rich deep red. Such a nice plant.

Summer Update Photo Dump

Hello all you beautiful people! Yeahhh, I know — It seems like it has forever since I’ve posted anything here. Yeah, things have been pretty busy outside of the garden the past couple of months but rest assured I still make time to go down and recharge my soul in The Asylum. The plants are all still doing good, but it’s that weird in-between time for me now. Spring pitchers already are burning out (thanks to my early season start) and pitchers of the autumn-indulging plants are just starting to form. Anyway – here’s a quick and dirty photo-update-reel from the past few weeks.

Sarracenia oreophilaSarracenia oreophila – for the most part the spring pitchers are gone. Still a pitcher here and there looking ok.

Sarracenia leucophylla 'Hurricane Creek White' - clone F x 'Adrian Slack'Sarracenia leucophylla ‘Hurricane Creek White’ – clone F x ‘Adrian Slack’ I had this one seriously cramped pot of of these seedlings and repotted those seedlings into these four trays. You can see the old foliage all floppy n’ crud but they’re all throwing up new pitchers. Should be a pretty interesting cross.

Thanks Eric!FREAKIN’… THANK YOU ERIC!! So not that long ago a really awesome surprise came in the mail from Eric Morrow. After a somewhat really bad week for me, this surprise was a huge pick-me-up. By the way – check out Eric’s Instagram feed for some Sarracenia-heavy updates: @sarraceniacrazy!

Another neat little seedling of a cross I did that is reacting well to the repotting from earlier this year.

Sarracenia leucophylla "Hanrahan" x alata AFHere’s one of the more recent crosses I did – Sarracenia leucophylla “Hanrahan” x alata AF. I’m excited about this one because… well… it’s an AF recessive S. areolata and can’t wait to use it in future AF projects. And… it’s fuzzy!

Drosophyllum lusitanicumNot a pitcher plant but… sheeyat, I’m loving how this Drosophyllum is doing.

Seedling Fray

Things in The Asylum are still moving along. One area of the greenhouse that I am constantly battling is this mess. I’ve jokingly been saying the seedlings are in “self culling mode.” (Well, maybe I am not so joking about it.) I say this because the strongest continue to grow out while the weak ones just seem to self-compost.

Sarracenia seedling clean upThe mess.

There are so many young plants in this pile o’ foliage that have some great potential. Here are just a few from the fray that I’m feelin’. So many more gems in this mess. Stay tuned as those will be included in future updates.
