    Pardon the poor photo. Anyway, this is a Gubler plant which I originally thought was an S. minor(sold alongside some S. purpurea). However, over time the pitchers turned reddish and now the new growth is red(you can see it if you look closely in this photo).




    Also, this stuff here is not sphagnum right?

    And? So what is the problem? What are you asking. Is it supposed to be red? Must be!? Its red already. ??????
    For a really great pic of a true all red minor, look in BobZ's sarracenia photos (google it) and look for the Berkely County, South Carolina red minor. Yours isn't even close to red after you check out that photo!
    BTW, New growing leaves on most sarracenia are always red.

    Interesting. I didn't think minor turned red so when the originally green plant started to change I doubted my ID.

    Oh, no! Minors can turn red in winter too. Some grow with red caps, some have red lining the edges of their "windows", Some plants are diffused with red, and some are all red. Harder to find, but they may still be out there somewhere. Red is not a problem. If you find a colorless minor, no red anywhere, give me a call!!!

    Doesn't look like sphagnum to me, but another ground cover moss. Keep an eye on it. An occasional pic of it in about a month or so will give a better ID on the moss.

    OOOOHHH I looked at the thing and saw a head of sphag, but after bug here mentioned it didnt look like it i had to look closer to see if i was loosing ym cp eyes, instead of a full head of sphag that looks like some of the moss that grows among VFTs

    Most sarr leaves start out vibrantly red, then they turn their natural colors once they're a few inches tall. That stuff don't look like sphagnum.
