    Never met a Leuc I didn't like.
    Also looking into Leuc x jonesii "green", hurricane creek white, and a few others. I have seen 'candy'stripe' and they don't seem all that different than normal Leucs. But 'titan' is tempting as well.

    I have heard/read about pollination and seed forming, but nothing so far about any successful germination from them. Kinda disappointing, actually.

    The S. leucophylla X jonesii "anthocyanin free" variant is beautiful....not a hint of red in those pitchers, which gives the plant a very vibrant, fresh look. One of my favorite Sarracenia.

    The poster in the thread on CP UK forums I linked in the trading post thread had successful germination from 'Tarnok' hybrid seeds:
    http://www.cpukforum.com/forum/index...17617&p=165531

    Flowers and flower parts are essentially modified leaves. The 'Tarnok' flower appears to be missing both petals and stamens (filiments and anthers). These seem to develop as additional sepals instead. The ovaries and styles are also deformed when compared to "normal" Sarracenia flowers. There are often multiple styles.

    Grand Hotel... always the same. People come, people go. Nothing ever happens.

    And the OP states at the end of the thread that several of the seedlings flowered and the flowers were normal. So, it appears the mutation is not an inheritable trait.
