    This may sound crazy but I once bought Home Depot Sarracenias from the 50 cent rack. I was band new to the hobby and they most closely resembled S. rubra. After nursing them back to health and putting them through a dormancy, the following spring, they showed what they really were - a leucophylla mix of some sort. Give it time and care and it'll become more evident to you.

    Well, what I thought were phyllodia are actually trap leaves. They're developing some red veining. I repotted all my warehouse wonders this afternoon and it turns out there were two complete plants in this pot (separate rhizomes). They were planted in a tiny plug of pure peat (probably a seed tray plug) and that was wrapped in LFS. What a chore unwrapping the LFS without tearing the roots. They're now planted in equal parts perlite - peat mix with an LFS top dressing.

    I don't know when I'll get some pics. The LACPS meeting is this weekend and I also have some seeds that should be sown out of stratification.

    Busy weekend.

    Okay, it turns out there were two plants in the pot (separate rhizomes). The two tallest leaves are on different plants:



    1 week later (I repotted the plants individually a few days earlier):

    Plant 1:




    Plant 2:


    Looking at the plants today it appears the hoods are lightening up between the red veins to maybe white/pinkish and there may be some fernestration or at least whitening on the 'trumpet' near the column of the hood.
