The clone L30A is a top selection plant from our Sarracenia leucophylla
breeding program. It was obtained as result of L2
cross. The aim of such hybrid was to fuse qualities of these two clones. The clone L2 is probably the tallest clone in our collection.
It has very attractive red veining, but the fenestration is sometimes not very clear, that indicates possible S. rubra
introgression. The clone L22D
is not as tall, but is very robust and exhibits the cleanest fenestration among red veined leucophyllas in our collection.
Moreover, the offspring of L22D
is very uniform, that confirms very high genetic purity of this clone, which is rare and valuable for further breeding. So the aim was to obtain very tall, red veined plant with clear white fenestration. There is no doubt, it was fullfilled in case of clone L30A. The pitchers frequently exceed 100 cm height, several times reached 119 cm.
There are also three other sister clones L30B, C and D from same batch of seeds, that will be documented later on this web page.
