White-leaved plants are fascinating. When I bought my first white pitcherplant, I thought I had found the holy grail of carnivorous plants. Then I read about some clones exhibiting more white than others, saw some photos, and told myself I had to grow one of these… but the whiter the rarer, so it was a long quest. I used to grow a beautiful « red and white » variant of this species, but it was not enough to satisfy my lust for the ultimate albescent Sarracenia. Later on, I learnt about an alba variety — even whiter plants! But, guess what? There are quite a few different ones out there and they vary a lot, some of them boasting more white, with less veins, than others. Here comes 2023, and at long last, I may have found the whitest white pitcher plant.
