    A seed-grown cross with monstrous potential; plants are around an inch in diameter right now but will likely be able to push 6-8 inches once mature. With gigantea as the seed parent this cross may have a slightly greater size potential, with broad ovular leaves that will flush red in good light, and flowers are likely to be moderately sized with varying shades of rich purple. Plants are shipped bare-root wrapped in a moist paper towel, via USPS Priority mail; I typically ship Monday-Wednesday to avoid weekend hold-overs. US shipping only. Many plants are grown in high humidity conditions and may require acclimation, unless otherwise noted. If you are expecting weather that may be detrimental to the plants if shipped, please message me upon making your order! Shipping cost includes heat pack for winter conditions. If there are issues with the plants upon arrival, please contact me within 48 hours of receipt.

    A seed-grown cross with a great deal of potential; plants are hovering around an inch in diameter on average right now, but once mature may well push over 6" across with thick, ovular red-flushed leaves. I expect flowers to be varying shades of rich purple, and moderately sized between the tiny blooms of gigantea (ironic) and the huge flowers of the laueana parent. Plants are shipped bare-root wrapped in a moist paper towel, via USPS Priority mail; I typically ship Monday-Wednesday to avoid weekend hold-overs. US shipping only.

    A promising complex cross with two homemade generations in it, these are expected to be spectacular. The seed parent is a select seed-grown clone of a cross I made that sports midly veined, brilliantly purple blooms, the pollen parent California Carnivores' famous red laueana  clone. These plants are expected to reach around 5 inches in diameter and will readily flush red in good light, and sport flowers that are brilliant purple-pink with possible mild veins.

    Available plants are seed-grown and may range from 0.5-1.5" in diameter currently.

    While the reverse cross is quite common, this iteration seems to be rather rare. This set of seed-grown plants is expected to reach an average size of around 4 inches in diameter, with roughly ovular leaves bearing rolled edges and readily blushing red in good light, darker along the margins and center. Flowers are hard to predict, but likely to turn out with somewhat fringed petals and bright fuchsia to purple with darker veins.

    The much sought-after giant of the butterwort genus, this species has thick, almost succulent ovular leaves that sport glands on both sides, and grow out in semi-erect to broad spreading rosettes that average between 6-10 inches in diameter, but have been known to grow to nearly 2 feet across! In winter, the rosettes shrink a bit, but develop reddish streaking in this clone and send up one to several individual stalks that bear each a single delicately lavender-white flower edged in darker purple and covered in hairs. This species occasionally reproduces via a false-stolon, plantlets growing in an etiolated, elongate manner to reach out past the parent rosette before establishing.

    Available plants are typically between 2-3" in diameter, may be smaller in winter.

    Formerly known under the name Lilium tigrinum, the Tiger Lily is an eastern Asian plant that develops one to several deep purple stems between 1-5 feet tall, bearing slender leaves averaging 6-10 inches long all along the length of the stem. At the top, one to several nodding flowers are produced, up to 8 inches or more across with backward-curling tepals colored in brilliant shades of peach to orange with darker brown or black spotting. After blooming, seedpods may form, and/or the plants are capable of developing bulblets within the axils of their leaves, which can be detached to grow new plants.

    Currently available are young offset bulbs averaging 0.5-0.75" in diameter, two for quoted price.

    This Australian classic is easy to grow and easy to bloom. Living typically as a terrestrial to affixed aquatic plant (does best just barely flooded), it develops mats of short, teardrop shaped leaves across the soil, and one established will send up thick stalks bearing one to several bright purple slipper-shaped blooms, often in pairs; stronger light equals darker purple. The flowers are also adorned with a bright yellow spot on the upper palate that offsets the violet. This is also a species that produces bladder traps large enough to readily see and often right at the soil surface. Plants are sold as 0.5-1" plugs.

    Famously referred to as the "Angry Bunny bladderwort" due to the uncanny resemblance of the flowers to frowning lagomorph faces, this species is an easy-growing, easy-blooming plant that covers the soil in roughly wedge-shaped leaves and throws up numerous stalks covered in white and purple-patterned blooms that sport what look distinctly like purple-centered ear lobes and a skirt sporting a scowling face. While this form is not as rapid-growing as the blue form, it is far more generous in flowering.

    This South American species is rather unique in simultaneously developing two distinctly different types of leaves, one set an elongate ovular ground-hugging type that will blanket the soil, and the other (often produced along the edges of the pot here, interestingly), a tall, grass-like blade up to 6" or more tall. Exposure to strong seasonal changes supposedly should trigger development of stalks that sport several moderately sized, lemon-yellow flowers.

    The third clone of this Carlton Carnivores original cross is similarly compact like its siblings, maxing out at around 2-2.5" in diameter, with the tight overlapping rosette of ovular leaves bearing folded edges making for sharp-tipped points like Clone A, though somewhat more triangular. Coloration like the others is typically bright green, with hints of pink though may blush deeper depending on soil and lighting. Flowers have the broadest petals of the three clones, almost rounded when first opening and distinctly ovular when fully open. Color ages from a rich lavender-violet to lavender pink, slightly darker bicolor blushing right at the very petal tips discernible and occasionally mottling of the petals visible, and upper petals are darker than the lowers and the grape-colored "halo" around the throat narrow and concentrated primarily at the bases of the upper petals. Some distinct striping of the deeper purple is also visible by the edges of the yellow palate.

    Currently available plants are young rosettes between 0.5-1" diameter (in summer phase; winter rosettes may be half this).

    This is the true cultivar, an elegant slender-leaved plant that can grow to more than 6" in diameter with a splayed rosette of arching semi-erect almost succulent leaves shaped almost like fingers. Under good light it may range anywhere from green tinted at the tips with pink to a rich pinkish purple through most of the leaf. Flowers are large, with broad rounded petals and a rich pink-purple coloration that changes tones as it ages.

    Available plants are semi-mature, between 2-3 inches in diameter. Due to the plant's nature it can be fragile, and leaves may pop off readily in transit and when repotting (can be used to propagate however).

    An odd little plant that might just be another variant of omissa x pulchella looking at the more slender leaves. However, whatever the identity the brilliantly colored flowers are amazing, with very light pink to whitish petals marked with rich red at their bases, forming a bulls-eye type look.

    With small rosettes of green ringed in bright pinkish-red traps, the plants alone of this cross are quite stunning especially in mass colonies. But, the real show is when they bloom typically in late spring, sporting very large (relative to the size of the plant at least), brilliantly salmon-pink blooms with dark centers.
