    Sarracenia 'Cobra Nest'

    Hi. Someone on another forum mentioned this patented cultivar, which got me researching it so I could offer better advice than "water, peat moss, lots of sun".

    According to the ICPS it doesn't go dormant? Is that accurate or hyperbole? Sounds like a fun cross if so.

    Any earthly ideas on the parentage? It looks like Minor and Purpurpea and maybe leucophylla?

    There is not a Sarracenia species or hybrid the doesn't experience dormancy or its eventual demise -- though you can drag most pitcher plants for a couple of years before they "crash" . . .

    I could be wrong, but I think the parentage is unknown. One of those "random seedlings" I suppose. purp definitely. minor is a good possibility. i think there is some rubra in there myself. i personally don't see any leucophylla influence, but who knows?

    Do a patent search using the keyword "Sarracenia"

    http://patft.uspto.gov/netahtml/PTO/search-bool.html

    Click on Sarracenia 'Cobra Nest'

    Under description read:
    The new Sarracenia was discovered by the Inventor as a seedling originating from a cross of two unidentified selections of Sarracenia hybrida, not patented. The cultivar Cobra Nest was discovered and selected by the Inventor as a single plant within the progeny of the stated cross in a controlled environment in Vista, Calif.

    This is what someone sent to me last year as a 'Cobra's Nest':



    Looks like a purple purpurea to me...

    A photo today:



    I put it through dormancy, just like the other Sarracenias and cobra lily. if I did anything wrong, the plant certainly didn't object.
