I am wondering if it is true that the Sarracenia flava f. 'red tube/green
lid' takes a growing season or two until it takes on its characteristic
markings, that is after one has repotted or disturbed the plant. I
currently have some seeds germinating of the following crosses:
S. flava cv 'Burgandy' X S. flava 'giant red tube', appalachicola &
S. flava 'purple tube', Milton X S. flava 'giant red tube', Appalachicola.
Will they take a few years until they attain their colour markings?
Lastly does the cultural variety that Adrian Slack described as S. flava
cv 'Maxima' in his Insect Eating Plants & How to Grow them, really exist?
That is a clone that shows the blue gey tint at the pitcher & phyllode
bases & the stately pitchers? It certainly sounded great at the time of
Thanks in advance, as well as thaks for the advice regarding my Thrip
troubles & the S. rubra status queries.
