    Are there any of you out there that grow S. leuco. 'Schnell's Ghost' and is this it? If I understand correctly, 'Schnell's Ghost is an anthro-free, green and white, leuco with yellow flowers. The lid is mostly white. This plant's lid is almost pure white and is not anthro-free. Any thoughts?

    I don't grow it (obviously), but IF it is not the cultivar 'Schnell's Ghost', then you should DEFINITELY register it. That is amazing! I've never seen a Leucophylla with so much white! It almost looks fake there is so little green.

    Needless to say, I am very impressed! [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html312/non-cgi/emoticons/tounge.gif[/img]

    That plant is definitely not antho-free, but it is definitely amazing!! Are all of the pitchers that white, or did that particular one just come out that white?

    That is not 'Schnell's Ghost'. 'SG' is all green and white...no red (anthocyanin free). I beleive there is a pic of 'SG' in one of the sarra photos from the speaker event at Meadowview. Its a beauty...and on my list to get one day. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html312/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img]

    I knew this was probably NOT 'Schnell's Ghost' due to the red(anthro). Thanks for the pics for comparison. Yes, I tend to agree this one should probably be registered. Many of the pitchers were mostly white so it was not a fluke. I have another plant leuco plant that has a very pronounced pink throat. I will post that one as well.

    This is my 'Schnell's Ghost', my favorite Sarra in my collection, which Bob has linked to.



    However this cultivar is not completely anthocyanin free, there is some red pigmentation around the bases of the pitchers. Mike King grows a couple of other stunning clones of pure green and white Leucos which are completely anthocyanin free though.
