Dormancy Clean Up Sale!
Hi! I'm cleaning up the grow area and have some great plants that need good homes. These plants are going to bust out of their pots soon. Instead of repotting, I'm offering them up here for you to take home. Images are of the exact plant for sale. Photographs of plants taken Feb 2022 reflect traps that are hanging around from last season. Dead pitchers will be trimmed prior to shipping. Decent pitchers will be left.

Photos are provided with last seasons pitchers as a reference. This will give you a general idea of what to expect when the plant is in active growth.

S. 'Green Monster' x minor var. okefenokeensis - Clone 3

A few years ago, Jerry Addington and I were discussing creating minor like anthocyanin free plants over the phone. At the time, we did not have any blooming AF minor, so I opted to use something AF and minor looking for the cross. This led me to use S. 'Green Monster'. I crossed this with a S. minor var. okefenokeensis from Mike Wang to get a few AF recessive plants.  I ended up with 3 clones from this cross, all of which are solid robust growers. 

Clone 3 from this batch sports some beautiful areoles that dot the back of the pitchers. This plant could be of some interest to those looking to breed along the anthocyanin free lines. Crosses that involve this plant with other anthocyanin free (AF) or AF recessive plants should yield a percentage of AF plants in the subsequent generations.

The entire pot of Sarracenia in the photo is the exact one for sale. As you can see from the photo, it is already busting the pot. I have left some of the previous season's traps on but will trim the dead ones off prior to shipping and leave any decent pitchers on. Plant will be shipped bare root.
