The mother for this cross is a plant that Damon made a long time ago and has always loved; a giant rubra ssp. gulfensis with the boxy mouth of its ancestral form.
’Wilkerson’s Red Rocket’ is one of the all-time best red leucophylla, and these should be some truly stellar readii! They should be exceptionally tall and colorful!
Sun: Full sun outdoors
Water: Always sitting in at least two inches of distilled or purified water, they prefer deep saucers of water or undrained containers in order to recreate their very waterlogged conditions
Temperature: 15 degrees - 100 degrees, needs protection from colder winters and always keep very wet when hot
Dormancy: All Sarracenia require a winter dormancy starting in October and ending in February. Many of the pitchers will turn brown and die back during this time. Leave them outdoors in full sun, sitting in distilled water during this period. If you live in an area that snows; overwinter them indoors on a sunny windowsill in an unheated room or garage. Still sitting in full sun and distilled water.
