    ^I bet that would yield some awesome offspring!



    For the first time, I have plans on making Sarr crosses. I'm going to attempt the following crosses:

    -(leuco 'Red' x minor 'Okee Giant') X oreo "Alabama"
    -purp "Black and Red" X oreo "Alabama"
    -(leuco 'Red' x minor 'Okee Giant') X flava var. ornata
    -Joel from Southern California

    I am hoping to make an S. Excellens... but, my S. Leuco flower is about to open and the S. Minor still has a few weeks. What can I do to prevent the S. Leuco flower from self-pollinating?

    edit:

    looks like this would work: http://www.rayandtrish.com/Pollinate%20a%20Sarracenia/How%20to%20Pollinate%20a%20Sarracenia.htm

    So far, I've only crossed 'Godzuki' with an unknown, some kind of flava or moorei-ish plant. I have a 'Fireworks' open now, that I'm hoping to pollinate with leucophylla "hot pink", just waiting for ripe pollen on the leuco. 3 buds on 'Snowflake' will be opening with a week or so, but i'm not sure at this point what i'll pollinate them with. haven't been in the greenhouse for a couple of days, so i'm not sure where everythings truly at, at this point.

    for my outdoor stuff, buds are just starting to emerge, so it's too early to say. i don't really plan on crosses, just whatever happens to be open at the same time. that being said, my first two outdoor flowers out of the gate are 'Ladies In Waiting' and a giant x catesbaei I got from CA Carnivores years ago. Let's just say I hope they open at the same time.

    you can collect pollen from your leuco, and store it in the fridge until the minor is open. i'm not sure it's feasible to try and prevent your leuco from getting pollinated in hopes it's still fertile when your minor opens

    If you're not wanting seeds from your S. leuco you can just cut the style (the upside down umbrella structure) off where it meets the ovary when the flower opens. Collect your pollen by tapping the flower and shaking the pollen off onto aluminum foil.






    I have a few flowers so we'll what will sound the best. Some of lookers could yield some nice offsprings. Any ideas?
    S. 'Reptilian Rose'
    S. Moorei
    S. Moorei #2 (Sunbelle)
    S. 'Leah Wilkerson'
    S. alata (black) x flava (veined)
    S. 'Golden Red Jubilee'

    How exactly do I collect and store in the fridge? Should I use a Q-Tip to collect and then just store it in a sandwich bag?

    what species/hybrids are YOU planning on making this season?

    Re: what species/hybrids are YOU planning on making this season?

    I am planning on breeding a wonderful and unique CP... a beautiful expression of nature and life, that can be sold all over, to people who can easily afford it and thus won't take the time to read up on how to care for them, and who subsequently will ignore its needs, and torture it slowly under sub-standard conditions until it eventually dies.

    Wait a minute, they already sell those!
    Never mind!
    Experience is the best teacher. At least it used to be.
    But then, common sense isn't so common anymore, is it.

    Q-tip or paintbrush. Sometimes you can tilt the flower and tap it so the pollen falls out onto your aluminum foil. You generally want the pollen still on the anthers rather than the pollen that has fallen on the style. It's fresher and more viable. The pollen will store for a few weeks but to ensure fertilization I was pollinate multiple times for 3-4 days in a row.
