Seedling progression

So I've been observing one vigorous seedling in particular.
Was hoping for my Hurricane Creek White seedlings to take on the white role, but this hybrid seems to be doing the job!
Started with 10% white hood and then progressed quickly on the following pitchers.
I'll take a clearer/better photo when the pitcher greens up the tube and completely opens, but here's the progression.
S. (leucophylla "Colossus" x "Doreen's Colossus") x 'Adrian Slack'

Don't those grow tall? I can't imagine moving the grow light higher and short plants receives less light from this while the tall one soaks it.

They will yes, but I won't be moving the lights up. Their necks will be a bit sore if they grow taller haha.
Honestly the lights are a little too high for my liking, but I have a sloppy intermediate set up for neps left of those Sarr.
It works for the time being though!

It's really strange what can come out of a sarracenia genetics because leucophylla "Colossus" is quite colorful and Adrian Slack as well, but this one look more like a HCW than both of its parents and it's mostly white. Very interesting! Raising sarracenia is not boring because it's always a surprise what they will look like. Some are banals, some are exceptional and deserve to be registered. Yours might be very much worthy of registration!

Yea, I've been learning that growing from seed. Depending on how complex the cross is, will show a greater variation in the seedlings. We'll see how it grows outside next year, see if it keeps its "alba"esque pitchers. If it gains a lot of popularity in the future who knows, may deserve registration. But for now, it fills in my want of a fairly decent white top in my collection. :)

That would be really cool. That's really fun to be able to get so many different looking plants from just one pack of seeds. Usually if you plant something, it's easy to predict the outcome and all the seedlings will look alike, but with sarracenias, it's a surprise.
