    Very nice! Time to repot maybe?

    Purps are the easiest Sarrs to repot and clean up IMO. I literally peel off the dead leaves like peeling a banana and they come off perfectly never leaving stumps like other sarrs do.

    *Takes off glasses * Wow...those are some dark purps! Looks like they've also kept their genes too!

    Do you think you will be gathering seed from them?


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

    Yup - I'm still around Wow - thanks for sharing pics of the plants. It's pretty amazing how much of the "Brunswick Beauty' coloration has been retained from seed. I always have trouble truly capturing just how dark the plants actually are - the camera likes to lighten them.

    I don't think you'll have any problems separating them - Sarrs are amazingly resilient (& now is a good time to do it).

    Congratulations on some nice plants! It's always great to see what the seeds turn into.
    All the best,

    That sarra has really nice coloration and is big, I can't wait for mine to grow like that, what is your soil mixture?


    Thanks!

    I am using New Zealand sphagnum moss for all my plants. They're in a 4 inch pot so they're not all that big.

    I can see if I get seed if the venosa flowers at the same time, but I think they're going to miss each other and I don't have anything else that's suitable to cross to keep it dark.

    I just finished separating them and there were so many tiny ones in there that were not getting any light. I'm sure they'll be much happier now and may darken up like their larger sibling. They were easy to separate too as you guys suggested.

    Here's a photo of them separated. And another photo comparing Sarracenia purpurea ssp. venosa on the left to the Sarrancenia purpurea ssp. purpurea x Sarrancenia purpurea ssp venosa ‘Brunswick Beauty’ on the right. The venosa of course is much older.

    Thanks for the comments, JoAnn

    JoAnn - Very nice plant you have there. I might be able to send you some pollen from a really nice dark red popei. Judging by the size of your flower bud in the photo, they are very close in age. It's supposed to be close to 80 degrees this weekend so mine might be open soon. PM me if you're interested.
