    The hummingbirds here is SoCal don't seem to be very afraid of humans and when I'm working out in the collection they will come buzzing right by my head and scare the hell out of me. I've actually had them come check me out face to face about 10 or 12 inches away on more than one occasion. Really strange!

    Yes it was a great seed harvest this year. I did about 70 crosses last spring. I'll probably be doing a giveaway here in the near future.

    Thanks Scott. I agree it has nice soft contrasting color. It was a seedling that finally matured this year. I'm looking forward to this one getting bigger.

    Thanks Mass. How about this for a floppy lid?

    Thanks.

    So how about something new? Here is my first nice pitcher of S.'Leah Wilkerson' x 'Reptilian Rose' exactly 1 year 9 months old. I have a few more siblings that are starting to get some size and color on them too. We’ll see how they all turn out.

    Oh wow! And I don't think the hummingbirds have figured out yet, a year on, how to extract useful food out of my plants despite some Nepenthes xcampanulata crosses being dripping with it.

    I like that cross! I has a lot of characteristics that I like in Sarracenia all at once.
