    Thanks! The ventrata is actually developing spots. What's funny is that it's getting less light in my apartment window than it did in my bedroom window in Fredericksburg, but it pitchered down here... Strange plants.

    I don't know how I forgot these! They're showing a lot of potential. S. purpurea seedlings from a bog in Caroline County, VA which was sprayed with herbicide in the spring. This population may disappear in the near future, which is a shame since they're gorgeous!

    The veins in this seedling have darkened to the point that they're nearly black! Hopefully some of the siblings show the same trait.

    That S. Purp is insanely gorgeous.. I only have one with similar veining, but not nearly as dark.

    SO PRETTY.

    They've darkened even more since I took this photo. Some of the other seedlings have a body that is almost pure red and a normal hood. I'm hoping that more of the "black veined" traits show up as more seedlings mature. I might be able to register them as a cultivar. The hoods are getting even more dramatic as the get larger.

    I am totally looking forward to seeing more pictures of them as they grow. I have a thing for bright colors and dark veining.

    Nice shots! They don't even look like seedlings.

    These are definitely the plants for you then, Croft. They're definitely seedlings. You can see the immature leaves of the others around the miniature adult leaves, which are maybe an inch long.
