Here's a site that we didn't get shot at thankfully! Notice how the plants here are very sparse and not densely packed like at other sites. My impression is that this population is a lot younger than other places we visited. The good news is there were lots of seedlings and the site was definitely burned in the past year or two. When it's easy to walk through the field and the grasses aren't knee high, you know it's being managed/burned: Unlike the main rubricorpora site, this site had a mixture of variants, with S. flava var. rugelii being the dominant type: Another shot: if you loo
Several populations of "red flavas" exist in northwestern Florida: Liberty Co, Bay Co, Walton Co, Okaloosa Co, and Santa Rosa Co, FL (they probably are found in other counties as well). Flavas with red bodies and green lids are considered S. flava var. rubricorpora, whereas flavas with solid red bodies are considered S. flava var. atropurpurea. In Liberty Co and Bay Co, there are large populations of S. flava var. rubricorpora, but arguably, some consider individuals in these populations S. flava var. atropurpurea because at the time they were seen, the plant was solid red. Trouble is, i
This is one of the most heavily veined individuals from the S. flava var. ornata 'black veins' Bulloch Co, GA batch. This group of individuals can get solid dark black veins on the top of the lid, and I suspect the veins on the body could turn black as well, although it doesn't do that for me (maybe it could under greenhouse conditions?) When the traps just open, the veins on the top of the lid are red, but as the traps age, the veins turn black. Interestingly enough, clone E in particular has always been so slow to grow and has not produced decent pitchers for 16 years! This is the fir
