    What Sarr Beauty is This?

    Hiya Fellow CP'ers-

    All you Sarr Yoda's outhere, can you ID this little "poppit"

    They were calling it "Sarracenia lecuphylla, rare red"

    Any help would be greatly appreciate it, would like to add it to my collection

    Good Growing,

    I bought a cactus. A week later it died. And I got depressed, because I thought, Damn. I am less nurturing than a desert.

    Photo is very obviously digitally enhanced..
    (notice that some of the fake red coloration is outside the pitchers..in the grass)
    the real plant does not look like that..

    its a photoshop job..

    I enlarged the photo. There is no red coloration in the grass, just some other pitchers in the background. From the shadows it is obvious that a flash was used which would enhance the colors. And granted the color balance could be off, but that's the nature of color photography.

    On the website where the photo is posted it says they photos are copyright Bob Hanrahan. He is a very well known person in the carnivorous plant community. It says the plants are in his private bog and that it is the "rare red form" of S. leucophylla. The red in "Dana's Delight" had to come from somewhere.

    Great link NaN, if his leucos look like that in April (bottom left pic) I would die to see them in August!
    There's some great hybrid material in those bogs that's for sure. Wow

    I dont know..I still say its photoshopped..

    the plants might actually be somewhat red..
    I cant tell if ALL the red is faked..or if just the red channel alone was super-saturated..
    but its definitely highly enhanced..

    anyone have an email address for Bob Hanrahan?
    that would clinch it..
    I bet he would say thats not what the original photo looks like!
    if it is in fact his photo..someone messed with it..

    (you cropped out the obviously red strand of grass I was talking about..
    its on the left side of the original pic..)

    it might not be 100% faked..but its certainty "highly enhanced" to make the red much more intense than in reality..

    To me, they look like the exact same Sarracenia x moorei plants that are in the backgrund..just colored red.

    I don't think they're pure leucophylla.... they appear to have some flava in them. The mouth doesn't look right, more like a flava than a leuco. Also, the neck that holds the lid on looks a lot like a flava's, like more rounded and compact. I'd say it's a x moorei, maybe with some backcrossing. Nice colors, though, a beautiful Sarr if I ever saw one! Good luck on identifying it!
