    Getting a better Sarracenia collection.

One can never have too many excellens! I have more than 20 different clones, and I'm always looking for more... :sun_bespectacled:

Ok, 20 does sound a bit overkill to me....
Still, i suppose they look nice **HintHint** Post pics! :D

Perhaps when they're a bit more lively! They all look a little boring at the moment.

Mmmm, bits of dead leaf and rhizome! The essence of a Sarracenia :sarcastic_hand:

There are an indefinite number of excellens clones, as there are an indefinite number of any type of Sarracenia. One pollination of S. minor against S. leucophylla will produce several hundred different clones if all the seeds germinate, all of which will be genetically different. Times that by all the different clones of S. minor available and the number of different clones of S. leucophylla available. Then take into account the fact that every time leucophylla or minor seed are produced they will also be genetically different from each other. You could end up with an infinite number of genetically different S. x excellens.

Mind boggling! :suicide_fool-edit:
