I got this plant a couple of years ago; forgot the name of that individual. Though I do know, Brooks Garcia has some amazing Sarracenia. Oh! Wilkerson's 'White Knight' that's an AWESOME plant! Definately post pics once it matures!Beautiful.
Did you get those from Brooks Garcia? I've got a Wilkerson's White Knight that hopefully will mature well. It was looking a little on the dormant side the last time I checked but aren't they all these days!
I heard about the story about Brooks Garcia and thank you for the link (which I saw already). Just simply fascinating!Brooks is my personal friend. I have the utmost respect for him. Over the years, he has sent me a gift of one of every plant from the Wilkerson Bog that he has lovingly tended for over 5 years now. The Wilkerson's White Knight was the one he sent me this year. Not too many of those out yet but there will be soon. He religiously works that land as if it was his own carefully identifying and removing invasive species while seeing to it that a sustainable amount of seed is collected and grown out to preserve the genotype. Plants from the Wilkerson Bog are now in the hands of many scientists, botanical gardens, and private collectors where they are grown out and shared with others. The Wilkerson Bog plants are also in the hands of reputable CP nurseries where they are being propagated and sold to the public. These plants are in cultivation because of Brooks' hard work. I am extremely proud of the way he has cared for that land. I am also extremely proud of how he gave plants away to get them into cultivation fast to ensure that every Sarracenia present was (or is in the process of being) made available to the public. Premise being that those less honorable would not feel the need to poach if the plants were readily available from the nursery industry. Yes, he gave them to nurseries with the permission of the Wilkerson Family, to perpetuate the species.
I would be happy to share a photo of Wilkerson's White Knight with you privately. Oddly enough the name of that particular plant is one he deliberated over selecting and I strongly encouraged him to go for it. Long story but it was a tough decision for personal reasons.
oh okTee hee, 'Hurricane Creek' is John Hummer's baby whilst 'White Sparkler' and "White Knight" are Rob Sacilotto's babies. Brook's baby is "Wilkerson's White Knight". You're mixing them up accidentally. And no, I'm not over at Terra Forums. I really do stick to myself other than posting here plus a handful of people I can count on one hand.
