This is one of three highly prized anthocyanin free form of S. flava in cultivation. I 'discovered' this plant in the nursery a number of years ago, amongst a batch of var. rugelii seedlings from Telogia, Florida, hence I'm certain it is actually an all green rugelii. This is the most vigourous anthocyanin free flava I've grown and like it's normally coloured brethren produces pitchers approximately 18 inches high and with the characteristic stocky form of plants from this location.
