  1. I think the plant needs more light. The color of the plant is too darkgreen ant the petioles are etiolate. It is probably a fungus that attacked a debilitated plant and developed in a low light condition.

    Try to put the plant as near as possible to the lamp, add an extra lamp, or put it outside if it is hot and sunny enough.


  2. Here are some updates of this bunch of seedlings.

    there is a great variety of forms, some plants looks like typicals, other show a stable production of cupped traps, other plants show a very nice blueish-purple coloration.

    The two clones shown below are my special favourites!

    This one looks awesome.

    The traps are of a nice dark purple color inside and outside, with green petiole

    I'll get some second generation seeds next year!


  3. That's awesome! Congrats on the successful and interesting cross.

    Were you able to successfully use pollen from Wacky Traps on a Royal Red?

    Yes but none of the seeds germinated yet. The mother royal red produced a few seeds but they may be not vital or maybe they're just selfed royal red seeds. Let's hope they will germinate and they're the real thing.

  5. Hi,

    What do you mean by seed grown?

    Did you grow all these plants yourself by seed and then gave them names?

    Or did you purchase the seeds from the original plants?

    The large majority of the hybrids shown are created by Frangelo but I grow them because he has not enough space.

    The other plants were 1 year old seedlings I got as gifts or purchased from sellers.

    I made some nice hybrids myself but they are still young so I will photograph them next year.


  6. here is some seed grown sarracenia species and complex hybrids.

    Sarracenia "Cuore" (excellens X formosa)

    My favourite hybrid. Its name means heart in italian and it's obvious why!
