Unveil the extraordinary lineage of Sarracenia x "Acquerello," a masterpiece born from the convergence of two remarkable parent plants: 

  1. Sarracenia flava var atropurpurea F131D: This striking specimen, renowned for its imposing size and mesmerizing coloration, was carefully selected by Mirek and acquired during the Mira meeting in 2015. A true botanical gem that contributed to the creation of this captivating hybrid.
  2. Sarracenia flava var rubricorpora x leucophylla: Crafted by Gianluca Bergamo, this colossal moorei hybrid, standing at an impressive 105 cm, flaunts a fiery red hue. It serves as the second cornerstone in the lineage of Sarracenia x "Acquerello."

The "Acquerello" series, featuring Moorei All Red Giant hybrids, is renowned for its exceptional size and vibrant colors. Sarracenia x "Acquerello" #18, in particular, showcases a strikingly narrow and tall pitcher design adorned with a red-purple hue that borders on a deep black, making it the darkest among its peers. A true must-have for enthusiasts!

  • Ascidian color: A mesmerizing shade of dark red.
  • Peristome color: A rich and deep dark red.
  • Operculum color: Deeply hued in dark red.

These exceptional plants hail from self-produced seeds or reliable Italian growers, with a meticulous in-vitro sowing in 2018. The selection process involved keen observation of each plant's unique characteristics following acclimatization, ensuring the preservation of their precious genetics.
