    sarracenia flava var. atropurpurea for trade

    hi all!

    I have a small/medium-ish S. flava var. atropurpurea for trade. It isn't very red at the moment, and look pretty ugly with lots of phydolia...but it is the genuine article!

    I will take any offers (with in reason), but im looking for mainly sarracenia hybrids.

    Thanks,
    Frankie

    I have two color variants of Catesbeii I would be willing to part with - really red variety that's still small (division from a larger plant) and a mature sized green-with-red-veins variety which I can easily divide.

    I also have a Dixie Lace, but I imagine you have that one already.

    I don't mean to be rude but I'm curious how this is an atro if it's not red? Do you have some pics of a time when it was red? There are a ton of plants around under the atro moniker that seem unable to turn red....
    All the best,

    when atro's gets shipped or have root disturbance. it can take many months to gain the red color back... just a thing that atros and rubris have.

    just as glider said-only mine's been repotted. they aren't always 100% red 100% of the time, unforunetly...

    Anyway, the trade is near being closed with:

    Firerock, yeah!

    if it falls through i'll let you know...i hope not though!
