Sarracenia flava x minor

(2 reviews) Write a Review
This cross is pretty strange. Rarely encountered in cultivation, it makes for a striking deviation from the abundance of white-top pitcher hybrids that are so popular. Pitchers are tall, and almost pure yellow-green. The lid is domed, broad, elongated, and cowled over the opening of the black-rimmed mouth. Though a simple plant, the vivid color and the concealed opening to the trap give this one a unique appearance.

    The plant arrived dormant but has now sprouted. It looks healthy and has one very large pitcher.
