    How many plants do you make each year?

    I am hoping to assess the levels of obsession with Sarracenia out there.

    Feel free to guesstimate, but I would be intrigued to know:
    -How many crosses do you make each year?
    -How many seedlings do you produce and grow each year?
    -How many plants do you cull?
    -How many plants/seedlots/seedlings do you purchase?

    This year was the first year I began making deliberate crosses, and I made perhaps 20. I've got maybe 1000 unique seedlings coming up. Since I don't have a huge amount of Sarrs right now, I have the time to transplant them out... only culled a dozen or so per cross. Additionally, I have maybe a dozen Sarr seed batches stratifying from ICPS as well as temperate Drosera seedlings.

    Next year should be really insanely crazy, because I am expecting quite a few first-time bloomers!

    Im probably WAY in the minority, but:

    -How many crosses do you make each year?
    none.

    -How many seedlings do you produce and grow each year?
    none

    -How many plants do you cull?
    none

    -How many plants/seedlots/seedlings do you purchase?
    none

    I have been growing CP's for 20 years now, and I dont want my collection to be any bigger!
    Its the maximum size I can handle, and *want* to handle.
    I simply dont want any more plants.. I never let my plants flower and set seed, ever..
    I did in years past, but not anymore.
