    Yeah, rubra and alata are very closely related and certain forms and or locales of one species sometimes look very similiar to the other. After growing these plants for several years, alata has probably become my favorite species. Some it's darker or more heavily veined forms are spectacular.

    The plant actually looks very similar to your pic now. It's second leaf is just starting to open. It's now in a 6"x6"x8" pot with a peat/sand/perlite mix and growing very quickly. I'm going to give it (along with my other epiphytic Utricularia) a winter cycle this year to hopefully induce some heavy flowering in the spring.

    Great pictures, dude. Both sets. Didn't realize sarrs exhibited that squishing of the pitcher lid like some of the lowii hybrids. Than again, I don't know much about them in general.

    Not sure that I'm following you here. Which one/ones are you referring to ?

    Ah yes. Reptilian Rose is a very unusual and spectacular hybrid. It's got it all....... Stunning color, huge ruffled lid, impressive height. Really terrific morphology all around. I'll make sure to get a division to you at some point if you want one.

    Yeah, it's really beautiful, even for someone who doesn't know much at all about the genus.

    I'd love one. I'll be dividing my sarrs this winter and should have some great things to send in turn.
