Very dark colors on S. oreophila
Recently I’ve been able to see some very dark colors on my S. oreophila which I’ve never seen on any other type of clones. For those that don’t know S. oreophila is a rare green Sarracenia that has light purple veins inside its pitcher. Some clones (called sand mountain clones) have very dark veins inside the pitchers. However this clone that I have seems to be putting out its purple hues in not just the veins, but inside the entire pitcher! I’ve seen some sand mountain clones and none of them have ever looked like this! This was one of my first Sarracenias from the bog of Horticus Botanicus and it hasn’t really produced many pitchers till now. Heres another picture of the youngest pitchers on it which are showing the most of the purple hues.
I’ll be doing some research into this plant to find out if it’s is a select clone from the wild that’s very purple, or if it just has some very active color genes.
