First Photo's of the Season

Recommended Posts

Hi

Now that my plants have started to grow, I thought I would post a few pics.

S. Oreophila L to R. De Kalb Co Alabama, Ex Martin Cheek & Purple Throat.

Always one of the first to open.

Sarracenia Oreophila X Purpurea Heterophylla.

I especially like this plant, it was a seedling I bought about 18 months ago and this years pitcher dwarfs last years considerably. :biggrin:

Sarracenia Leucophylla – Hosford, Liberty Co, Florida

This is last years Autumn Pitcher which survived the Winter and has now a lovely pink colour. :wub:

Plus a couple of Flowers

Sarracenia Flava var Cuprea X S Flava

Finally what's left of my Venus Fly Traps

Thankfully all survived the winter (just :D ) but last year they filled these pots and instead this year it looks like I am going to get lots of little plants....

Thats all for now.

Thanks for looking.

Looking good! :D

Can I ask you, I've been wondering this for a very long time. Why are all british cp-growers so interested in Sarracenia? :biggrin:

Greetings,

The Sarracenia Oreophila X Purpurea Heterophylla looks familiar. Is that one of mine? I really like this cross!

My thoughts exactly, minimal work needed for a great looking plant.

I have my suspicions that it may well be. I bought 2 of these seedlings along with a number of plants from another forum approx 2 years ago. A short time later I noticed one of your posts (I think it was entitled "Promising Seedling"), on the post you asked a user how their seedlings were doing that you had passed on. I think from memory it was the same user that I had bought the plants from.

I agree it is a nice looking cross. :D

I had quite a few spares, and have sent them to a number of people, so, who knows?!
