    Ok, the sun actually came out for a bit yesterday and I snapped a few pictures of some new arrivals. The first 2 are of Rubra ssp. Alabamensis. These plants have huge lids and are almost a neon color. The 3rd is my Rubra ancestral from Georgia that was discussed in another thread.

    Brooks,

    You did a great job in thinking that through. A few years is not much to wait, considering what it will amount to.
    what does it take to tc Sarracenia? A plant will work for that(like a growing division off the original plant)?

    Cheers,

    Joe

    Joe,
    Thanks! Many times I have found myself looking at a picture of a cultivar with no hope of ever finding one. I certainlly did not want to inflict that agony on someone else.

    I think there may be a thread here on TF about TC. I am not the one to ask but I will tell you the limited bit I do know. TC is very complicated and requires clinically sterile conditions. A portion of the growing tip is extracted and sterilized and placed in agar (I think) There has to be many more steps than this but I am clueless. I do know that flavas are notoriously difficult to TC as they rarely produce a clean sample. Often times, flavas lend this characteristic to their hybrids. Leucos are very easy I understand i.e. 'Tarnok.' I was fortunate that 'Leah', being a moorei cross, took after the Leuco side of the family. The technician that did the TC on 'Leah' had been looking for a worthy moorei specimen to try and, I happened to be in the right place at the right time with just the right plant. I took him three strong growing points about this time last year that came from the orginal plant with written permission from Mrs. Wilkerson. He had hoped to try right away as disturbed plants often will start growth again but the plants went right to sleep. It was not until this summer when he had time that he was able to get the cultures to take. Probably more than you wanted to know.
    I remain a man obsessed with a genus

    Thanks Noah. I'm excited to see how they do once they settle in. Probably will look great next season.

    I also liked your minor from Georgia - nice looking plant.

    A couple more photos. This thread will be fun to look through this winter while everything's dormant.

    A (rubra ssp. alabamensis x purpurea ssp. venosa) x rubra and Phil Sheridan's Rubra ssp. rubra x leucophylla.
