I am interesting in adding some more Sarracenia to my small collection (especially hybrids), and thus I have been trying to find reading material that describes the growing tendencies and characteristics of Sarracenia hybrids, but have had little to no luck.
Barry Rice's Growing Carnivorous Plants has nothing nor does his web page on hybrids. The Savage Garden does have some info, but its kind of on the basic side.
I am interesting in answering questions like:
Will my hybrid grow phyllodia if it is 50% flava or oreophilla and crossed with a species that normally doesn't grow phyllodia? What if it's a percentage that contains less than 50 flava or oreophilla? What if a phyllodia-producing species is crossed with a species that grows pitchers consistently like a purpurea?
If my hybrid is part purpurea, will it grow pitchers all throughout the growing season? Do purpurea hybrids keep the open hood to allow rain water to fill the pitchers? Will purpurea hybrids create their own digestive enzymes even though they have some purpurea in them?
Do minor hybrids keep the white spots? Do they tend to keep the characteristic minor hood?
When will my hybrid produce its best pitchers if it is a cross between two species that produce their best pitchers at different times of the year (like oreophilla and leucophylla)?
I know genetics is complicated and that most questions may not be answered at all, but are there some dominant traits that seem to be persistent between crosses?
Any help or links to reading material on this matter will be greatly appreciated!
