    Sure is a striking plant. I have a hard time trying to think of what it could be. I'm guessing it is not just a simple hybrid between two spp. I'm thinking something complex, that is still mostly leuco, such as (leuco x purp) x leuco, or something vaguely similar to that. I actually just ordered a (leuco x purp) x leuco from Dean Cook, so I'll have something to compare it to. Another possibility in my mind is that it's from a selfed hybrid. Although if you got it at Meadowview, I doubt it, 'cause I know Phil detests self-pollinating Sarracenias. I was there earlier this year and told him I selfed my antho-free psitt x rubra, and he shuddered and told me never to do that again.
    I guess if you really want to know what it is, you'll have to self 6 generations from that plant, because that is when the offspring will be true to the parents. Maybe it's 7 generations. Anyone take genetics lately? I can't remember.

    Actually its not my plant. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img] It was just one of the many sarras at MV. At first I kinda thought it was rather "ugly duckling" looking, but its kinda growing on me. I sent Phil Sheridan a copy of the MV photos and I asked what it is. If/when I get a reply I will post it.

    I should have made this a contest...then I'd never have to give out the prize. Haw haw! [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/rolleyes.gif[/img]

    Something tells me it has some S. minor in the way the tube is shaped.

    I like the name "Cabaret"! Maybe you should mention that to Phill Shriden!

    That is a really beatiful plant. Dont know what it is. But am sure its has mostly leuco. But then have no clue what it could have been mixed with. Probably a leuco bred with another leuco hybrid. But Gosh! That is such a pretty plant.

    I for one don't like the plant. The skinny lower part and large upper part makes for an ugly combo in my opinion.
