    If the plant looks like this:


    And if the flowers look like this:


    You probably have P. ionantha. The plant shown in the above photos was purchased at Lowes 3 years ago.

    If your plant looks like this:


    And if the flowers look like this:


    You probably have P. primuliflora. This plant was purchased from lowes in March, 2003. If you see many plantlets growing on the leaves, its most likely P. primuliflora.

    Nick, the one I have from lowe's has the P. ionantha pics white flower, but it looks like the P. primuliflora and had plantlets forming on the leaves when I got it. Now i'm confused. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/confused.gif[/img]

    If plantletts are forming on the leaf tips, the confusion is over: this is a characteristic found only in P. primuliflora. The flowers of this species can be variable, but the apomictic reproduction is very definitive.

    Also the flowers are pale if they formed inside those cups which are kept in the dark during shipment and storage. You'll find the next set of flowers will look like the P. primuliflora pictured in this thread.

    Hmm, that's something to look forward to. I hope it puts up another soon. It looked like it had three or four so far. I'd like to see both colors on it at the same time. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/wink.gif[/img]

    I might be able to clear this up a bit - I got p.primuliflora at Osh (just another gardening store) and it was also simply labeled "Butterwort". It had white flowers at first....stick it in the sun and wait for 2 weeks. It'll turn to its appropriate color if that's what you have.

    Our local OSH has them also. You wonder how they make a profit at 4.99 or whatever each, since so many die. A lady worker told me that when they die or are very sick they just dump them in the trash and get credit for them from the growers. It's always fun to look for the misidentified stuff.

    LOL, my Osh is near a Toys 'R Us, so the stores make their profit, and the pings go home to die [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/wink.gif[/img]
