    Hopefully you're aware that this plant and 'Adrian Slack' are two of the most-desired Sarr hybrids out there. Here's one conversation for your reading pleasure ...

    Maybe I am just being dense... but I don't find those plants to be very interesting... they still just look like Sarracenia

    Eh, it's just personal appeal- don't feel all....dense and shruggy. It's cool ;D
    I will note that it has massive lids and very nice color, but apparently the big deal is that they smell like real roses, if the other thread is correct. I dunno. I want it for it's name. Anything reptile/snake related is an automatic "must have" for me >.>
    It's pretty too, so it's all good

    It is very pretty. The actual pitchers smell like roses? I read that thread but I thought that they were talking about the flowers. That would be totally wild if the pitchers smelled like that, but STILL all the more reason why it should be more widely available to get ALL future Sarr hybrids smelling like roses. Neato, but I would never spend 130 dollars on a Sarracenia, UNLESS it had some kind of active trap. Or smelled like roses. Wait a second.....

    If it is widely available then it is not special anymore. Why ruin a plant that special?
    We can go for days without food, but we can't pass 5 minutes without air. REMEMBER TO BREATH!!!

    Trouble breathing? Let me know.
