This is the only proven black veined variant of the yellow pitcher plant! It seems as though the pitchers really need to mature for a good 2 months after opening before the dark colors set in. The veins on the body can turn black as well, but since we have ours packed closely together, the body is not getting as much direct sunlight and is therefore, not turning black.
Unlike many other S. flava var. ornata variants, the black veined variant offered has crystal clear veining, as though they were carefully painted on by an artist. Producing this plant has taken more than a decade in the works, and we are proud to finally be able to offer this plant to you for the very first time! Plants available are medium-small in size, and are well established with a strong, healthy root system. They are all hardened off to outdoor/full sun conditions.

Mine died over the harsh winter we had in jersey but i loved while i had it. I intend to buy another one really soon. now that i have a temperate green house set up, I should be able to maintain a temperature around 40f during the winter.

Reviewer: cappadocicum from Bay Area, CA United States  
ooh! beautiful markings on the one remaining pitcher! not much action right now since it is already October, but the rhizome is thick and the roots substantial so I'm expecting a beauty come spring

Excellent rhizomes April 16, 2015
Reviewer: Anonymous Person from Canon City, CO United States  
Bare root plants arrived quickly and all appear to be coming out of dormancy nicely. Glad I found this source of uncommon sarracenia.  They sent one extra of several of the plants I ordered.
