    Crappy pics, but here they are. What is the name of this? Is it a flava? I have more pics coming, it is just taking me a while to get them loaded on my computer.

    The first pic looked to me to be similar to a minor, but the next two pics really do look like a flava.

    Yeah, looks like you have more than one species here. The first is probably S. minor x flava. The other pics look almost like oreophila, but that's highly unlikely. Any larger pitchers?

    On a side note, it looks like these plants are suffering from lack of light, the result of too many years without a good burn. Could you get us some habitat shots?

    More pics please!

    I think you need to look again. Looks more like S. alata to me.

    Yes, they are on my property. Yes, they are in a low light area. I was suprised by that. It is a boggy area (at least when we are not in drought like right now). I do have more pics that I am trying to load, I have dial up and my computer keeps freezing. I'll get more as soon as I can, and I'm not sure I took a good habitat pic, I may have to go back out and get one. That is not a problem. All the plants looked alike to me, so I doubt there is a mix here, just the different pictures.

    So does that mean it is okay to dig a few up if they are on my property? Not "my" property, but church property, which is where we live, in the parsonage. These are directly behind our house. Private property. I certainly don't need permission from church members before getting them, I know that. They don't even know what they are.

    See, it is just very shady, only filtered patches of light here and there. The only thing going for it was the boggy area. There was a fairly large patch of plants though, so something must be right for them. I still have more pics coming.
