Hello all,

I want to wrap my head around which Sarracenias are the most vigorous - species and hybrids. 

Would you like to tell me your most vigorous Sarra? And what is the most vigorous Sarracenia in your opinion?

Generally hybrids exhibit the best vigour, although which one is best there are simply so many that I haven't grown I cant tell you. I have many different moorei's that are very vigorous, both named and home made mongrels.

Cheers

I heard about these extremely vigorous Mooreis like "Sarracenia Leah Wilkerson"! Are there any other Moorei variants worth mentioning?

Admittedly, I didn't have a good experience with Sarracenia x Moorei "Brooke's Hybrid" as it would only pitcher twice in a year before producing phyllodes...

By vigorous do you mean quick to produce offsets, or producing lots of pitchers in a season? Slack's flava 'Maxima' forms a good clump pretty quickly and will produce at least three or four pitchers per growing point. Brooks Hybrid gets really tall, but isn't the quickest to form a clump.

Thanks all! I would like a plant that produces the most amount of traps per growing season, although clumping is also a good definition for vigorous too :) 

Is it possible to get an Oreophila "Sand Mountain" in the EU?
