    exo, that would be awesome! I actually had an oreo back maybe 4 years ago that was doing great, but when I was in Brazil my mom (who was doubling as their caretaker) let it dry out and had it in a North facing window indoors. I about cried when I heard about that... since then I've been dying to get my hands on another one.

    I also want to add - LONG LIVE GIVEAWAYS! That is one thing that makes this community so amazing!

    I may have a few that are large enough to give away, I'll have to look...I'd have a bunch, but they experienced a freak coldsnap this spring and it set them back considerably....I may just hold on to them till spring..I intend on growing them under lights over the winter.
    Some days it just isn't worth chewing thru the restraints.

    1) Currently, do you have any of these Sarracenia and/or any of their forms, varieties, or cultivars in your CP collection
    No

    2) Yes, I had a mature oreophila with 26" pitchers. I was going to do a seed giveaway but I lost the plant mysteriously.
    Roots were nice and healthy when I repotted, so was the rhizome.

    3)I've been growing sarracenia as long as I've been growing cp's, about five years.,

    4) I have Approximately 15-20 sarras
    My favorite is S. flava var rubricorpora and S. x Catesbaei


    I had an oreophila with 26" pitchers.
    It flowered in my care and I was going to do a seed giveaway, but then me new kitten broke the flower stalk.
    I had hand pollinated it and bagged it in mesh to prevent cross pollination.
    Unfortunately I lost the plant. The rhizome was a nice caramel color, and the roots white and wiry when I re potted.
    After several months with no emerging growth I checked to find the rhizome was mush.
    Here in Oregon we've had an unusually wet and cold spring this year, I think the weather may be partly to blame.
