A bunch of others and one real but its like having a Dentate x Fused Tooth cross and saying only one of them is Dentate x FT. David Conner is pretty reputable.
Yes, jamez, -->Clones. They are all the same plant.
According to popespliff:
As the person who named Southwest Giant some 10yrs ago i can tell you that it has only been propagated by vegetative methods (by us at Southwest carnivorous Plants) .
IE, cloned. There is not "A NUMBER OF NAMED CLONES" of the SWG. They are all clones of the same original plant....or they are not SWGs.
Read your quote of David Conner:
The 'Southwest Giants' were part of a number of named clones I got from another CPer a few years ago. Most were red varieties, as well as these SWGs turned out to be.
He received "a number of named clones"-->Not all SWGs.
Different clones-->"Most were red varieties"......as well as
these SWGs turned out to be."
The SWGs that he received were just ONE
of the named clones that he received.
