    This one's from Gubler's. I suspect a hybrid with some purpurea in there somewhere. The tallest leaf is maybe 4 inches (pictured). No noticable throat "bulge".

    it looks like it might be a 'Judith Hindle' because my Lowes offered them a while ago.

    That would be nice, but I guess I won't know really until the growing season starts.

    They had some S. psittacina too (again from Gubler's Orchids). I wish I had picked that one up also.

    Here's a 'Judith Hindle' from Barry Rice's Gallaria Carnivora:



    It looks similar, and definitely a good match to the other pitcher I bought Monday. Photos on the way.

    Possibly a rubra, guessing by the size. Do you have a photo that shows the entire pitcher? Could be var. wherryi... almost looks like alabamensis to me. It'll have to grow out before you can tell for sure.

    I have some "full body" shots on another roll of film that I haven't finished off yet. The plant is tiny, in a 2-3" pot, typical TC young 'un. Only two of the hoods are fully developed, the rest are either browned off or "minor-ish" looking.

    The bigger plant I just bought looks very much like the one Mozie posted. I was thinking that one was a S. rubra var. wherryi, but it's hard to tell with the hoods dried out somewhat. Gotta get a digital cam

    Either would be nice. I'll just have to wait for the growing season.

    The newest pitcher I picked up may be S. leucophylla. The sticker on the pot said it was from Nursery Man's Exchange (aka Bloom Rite). Looking at Booman's Floral website they mention that BloomRite/Nursery Man's Exchange is one of their brokers. Following the chain to PlantsforKids which is Booman's Floral etailer website the only pitcher outside of unspecified hybrids that would match what I have is S. leucophylla.
