    Newly Discovered Genus

    OH, YES. You read that right! Recently today, a new genus of CP has been discovered...and it's quite odd:





    As you can see, it's the platypus of CPs. It looks like different Sarracenias patched together. You can see what looks like S. flava, purpurea, alata, leucophylla, and minor pitchers...But wait...What's that at the base!?



    Not only does it have Sarracenia pitchers, but it also seems like it has D. capensis leaves and VFT leaves. What should it be called? Sarradroseraea flapuralaleucomincapflytraps.

    This is an extremely rare plant. Only one has been found so far. How many others are waiting to be discovered? No one knows. When will get into cultivation? Hopefully soon through leaf cuttings. Do I have too much free time? Yes. Were you disappointed when you found out it was a joke? Probably.

    I was very bored and trimmed some of my Sarracenias today...Thanks for viewing.

    Because everything was looking like a mess. Pitchers were flopping everywhere, dying, etc. The capensis and VFT leaf was just for the heck of it.

    Good discovery. Are you sure it's not a hybrid?
