    Smile Sarracenia Seedlings

    Hello everyone! I love sarracenias and over the last couple of months i've bought, been gifted and traded for several different sarracenia seed. Theyre mostly hybrids because I really like the unique looks of some hybrids. I also tried, for the most part, to pick parents that are colorful because i'm attracted to red pitchers. Thats probably why S purpurea is my favorite sarracenia.

    Now, a few things have germinated and I thought i'd share some pics.

    (Moorei redxleucophylla)xflava all red



    S flava rubricorporaxS flava ornata



    Mixed sarracenia seedlings



    S purpurea heterophylla open pollinated



    S leucophylla "Purple and White" giant form Route 71 Altha FLA x S flava rubricorpora "Milton FLA"



    Sx 'Evendine' x Flava(tall)



    S rosea #1(started earlier this year)





    S rosea #2





    Heres what, hopefully, i'll have growing by spring-

    There are most definitely more that i'll list up as they germinate.

    I do realize the seeds like Leah Wilkerson wont give me an actual LW. I'll keep this updated as seeds germinate and get bigger.

    looks great!! Good luck with the seeds!


    In addition to growing plants, I design and build RC planes powered by Tesla batteries. Check out my progress at www.chargedplanes.com

    Beautiful plants! How long does it typically take for a sarr to start producing adult pitchers? I've been thinking of making my own hybrids, though since I'm a college student and not sure where I'll be in five years' time, having tons of sarr seedlings doesn't really seem possible. :\

    I'm not positive but i'd say a few years.

    how big are those Sarracenia Rosea seedlings?
    Not that big. Theyre in a 12 oz cup and have just started going through a growth spurt. The biggest pitcher on plant #2 is probably around 2 1/2 inches at the most.
