    Hi Brooks,
    I got the plant in a trade/purchase something more than 6 yrs ago (10??) and I have no record at all where I got it (before I kept decent records). Since then I've given or traded plants with a number of people and then they've given/traded, etc so the plant is 'out there'.

    When Dean Cook can get some extras, he also sells this clone (& regularly requests more...).

    I just gave away my last spare a few weeks ago and I owe one to another friend.

    The S. flava rubricorporas have deep red tubes and this S. flava cuprea has a deep red lid but the S. flava atropurpureas I've seen tend to fade w/ time (I've heard about peat tea, etc). At Meadowview, they appear to hold their color well - maybe it's the intense sun??
    All the best,
    Ron

    RL,
    That would be the famed 'Kimber Red Ruffles' Dean sells then. I have gotten two and lost both of them to fungus. This clone seems to be highly prone to fungus for me. What are your growing conditions?

    Nope - never had a problem w/ fungus w/ that plant. During the summer of continual monsoons 2 yrs ago, I lost some VFTs to black spot (or something similar like anthracnose) before I even realized they were sick.

    I've grown everything in 100% sphagnum peat for the last 5+ years w/o any issues until 2 yrs ago. This past winter, I switched 90% of my plants over to a 50:50 sand / peat mix. I think I may have put too much sand in some of the mixes because I'm not getting the wicking to the top of the pot. The surface becomes bone dry even though there is water in the tray.
    All the best,
    Ron

    Hi Brooks, When you mentioned the 'Kimber Red Ruffles', were you referring to the S. flava cuprea plants that RL7836 sent to Dean Cook or to the S. flava rubricorpora photographed above? Maybe you were referring to the atropurpurea? Did somebody go and register RL7836's flava var cuprea plants? I can't find 'Kimber Red Ruffles' listed anywhere as a registered cultivar. Just curious as it is a spectacular plant. If it isn't a registered cultivar, it should be.

    This is an S. flava from North Carolina that I grew from seed a number of years ago (seed from Phil Wilson). The vertical hoods are typically retained throughout the season (although some hoods on a few pitchers do bend somewhat) (...and yes they are the 1st to fill up from rain and fall over...)
