I got some seeds from the seed bank last year that I germinated over winter. S. Wilkerson Red Rocket F2 x Red Sumatra. I assumed they'd probably be red but that wasn't really the case. I did get a seedling reminiscent of S. Minor with reddish windows on a plant but this guy is green. The crazy thing is it has a black mouth. Like Black black. I noticed it earlier in the year and thought it was odd but it's kept that trend with the last 3 or so. Pretty cool though. Tried to get a decent poc but the camera was kinda bad

Whoa, that’s really dark. It reminds of a forum member here trying to create the darkest sarracenia possible. I wonder how that project is going?

That's excellent. Clever because of the multiple meanings. I'll go with it and give you credit if we get there 😀

That is weird. Almost looked like mold on the pitchers. Also I think you could get a better picture if you let the camera focus on the leaves and not what's behind it.

Yeah, when I first saw it a few months back I thought the same thing. I thought something got on the plant. I tried holding it at all distances, messed with the zoom at different distances. It's just a phone camera and I'm definitely not an expert. I kinda gave up and settled with those two
