I also have a Mike Sprouse Sarr, S. (Giant Fuzzy Pink leuco x (oreo x flava)) x Berry Pastry. I got a few seedlings from Sandy Casey, and they did well here in Tennessee. I expect them to go nuts this Spring, but we'll see.

I'm wondering if I should do 6 weeks or 8 weeks for those panman Flava seeds. Panman said he had good germination with his own flavas with 4-6 weeks. Getting impatient... :lol:

Batch #1 should be done by March 2. Batch #2 should be done by March 14 or something like that.

You shouldn't have to wait too long. The flava seeds generally begin sprouting in about 2 weeks and continue for another 2.

Out of the 6 I bought from cal carn one has a flower and one has an opened pitcher so far!

Any thoughts on pitcher? I don't think you can ID from a flower but I was excited because it's my first sarr bloom ever!ImageImage

I have a couple of their pitcher plants, but I think they're still growing kinda slow because of the cold weather. I had two pitchers on one plant that got cracked at the bottom when the pot was flipped over. There are more pitchers coming out, but they're taking forever to grow.

You wouldn't mind posting some pictures of the whole plant(s)? :)

They felt like paper. Thin, flimsy.

They are nothing amazing yet- except for the price- but I'm still hoping for great potential! The one with the fully opened pitcher has one sending up a flower that I had written off as a dud. So I am 6/5 (I only bought 5 and they sent 6). ImageImageImage
