Oh good. Glad to know I don't have to get on building that light stand right away. Time isn't something I have a lot to spare right now. But I know when I have a house in the future, it will have a bog garden! Forget normal plant beds! These guys are just too cool.
I was able to get some more Sarracenia from my local nursery. They all just had a name written on a pot. I searched online and believe I have come up with a species name for each. Please correct me if I'm wrong.
Group shot! Some of them are a little floppy since they have been kept in partial shade for a couple weeks. You can also see the labels on some of the pots.
Was labeled as yellow trumpet, and I'm pretty sure it's S. flava
Was labeled as what appeared to be TARNOX, but a little digging around came up with this plant as S. leucophylla
'Tarnok'. That one left me scratching my head for a bit as I know that common names aren't the easiest ways to ID... well anything.
Labeled as catesbaei and I presume it to be the flava x purpurea hybrid.
Labeled as Mardi gras, and I thought for sure they were pulling my leg on this one. But it's a complex ornamental hybrid (Sarracenia leucophylla x S. purpurea) x (S. leucophylla x S. psittacina)
. Again, just going off what I found online.
Kinda cute name with this one: doodle bug. It's an ornamental hybrid of alabamensis x psittacina apparently developed in NC (really curious where that nursery is because I might be able to visit it).
We had a HUGE rainstorm come through after I brought these guys home yesterday. I was able to fill up a couple of jugs with water. With luck our summer will be wet enough that I can just do that instead of buying distilled water.
