I have grown a lot of sarracenia from seeds generously donated to the seed bank plus others I have purchased. I am trying to get better at proper labels. Correct form is s. seed producer x pollinator correct? What need capitalized if anything? Cultivars can just be Sarracenia "Cultivar Name"?

If I grew seeds that were labeled s. flava I think that wouldn't be correct? It needs to be pollinated by something. So would my labels all have to specify open pollinated to be correct?

I may be overthinking this haha but i have been separating seeds and making a lot of tags lately

Last question first. S flava would be flava x flava meaning it came from two genetically different plants. It would be labeled as S. flava. Some people label selfed plants without the x self.

The first letter of the genus would be capitalized, soSarracenia. Crosses are labeled as producer x pollinator. Cultivars are S. 'Cultivar Name' or S. x 'Cultivar Name'.

If it's just a description, then you use regular quotes: Sarracenia flava var. ornata "Outlaw site".
