Hi Starchy,

I was able to dig up a photo of rubricorpora 'best clone' from my library:

And here's what I've done with this clone-I could only imagine what breeders can make with it: http://sarracenia.proboards.com/thread/ ... ne-liberty

Walter-I still have plenty left! These are great genetics that grow very fast for a purpurea ssp. purpurea, and they can get gigantic, although I haven't been able to do it (although I've seen my friends grow these plants into giants!)

Which clone has the most green to contrast the red? That is my favorite trait in the pitchers. I understand they all eventually color up and lose the green.

The S. purpurea ssp. purpurea f. heterophyllas are quite big with multiple growth points. Check out the tray in the foreground:

this is what you can expect with S. purpurea ssp. purpurea Marl Bog form, Bruce Co, ON-they're really healthy:

Which clone of S. minor var. okefenokeensis would you recommend if I was aiming for mostly/all green? I read on Barry Rice's FAQ that some clones from Ware, GA have shown more green pitchers. I like how much more pronounced the white windows look when they are contrasted with a crisp green color.

clone N and clone #4 are on the "greener" side of things. There's probably others, but I'd have to double check.
Mike, can you tell which clone this is:

I think I am changing my mind about the color. I don't like the red lips contrast with the green. In the photo above, I feel like the colors blend in better.
