    I was wondering if there is such a thing as a sarracenia tarnok. I don't even know why there would be such a thing, but there could be and it be a hybrid.

    Hi Wesley,
    There is; it is Sarracenia leucophylla cv 'Tarnock' which has a mutant flower. The petals and sepals are fused to create a spectacular bloom. The pitchers are just like any average leucophylla

    Plants grown from seed take around 5 years to flower, it can take less or longer time depending on how it's being cared for. I've heard numerous times that seedlings grown in long fibered sphagnum mature at a faster rate. I haven't tried it myself but perhaps somebody could comment on this?
