    ID this Sarracenia

    I picked this up at OSH (Orchard Supply Hardware) Monday. The tag on the pot said it was from Nursery Man's Exchange (aka Bloom-Rite). Since NME is a broker for Booman's Floral, most likely the plant is from Booman's TC factories. Most disturbing was the little flag card that was in the pot. Text in card:

    Bloom-Rite
    Indoor Garden Care
    Keep your beautiful BLOOM-RITE Indoor Garden in temperatures between 55 to 77F. Your indoor garden requires indirect lighting. Keep soil moist, but do not overwater, as your container does not have drainage holes. Allow top of soil to dry to touch before watering. Fertilize one or twice yearly with a houseplant fertilizer.

    I was thinking this plant is S. leucophylla, but after looking at it in the sun today I'm leaning towards 'Judith Hindle'

    I would go with a white leucophylla. Give it time.

    that's probably a S. leucophylla, the only reason why I think that it's only a luec is because of the 'hood collumn'

    That looks like S.xreadii. It's not a Judith Hindle. And definitely not a pure leuco.

    This plant and the unknown Lowe's Sarracenia have been putting out phyllodia recently. Time to put them outside I guess, although the windowsill they are currently on probably gets the same amount of sun as the balcony they are destined to.
    Grand Hotel... always the same. People come, people go. Nothing ever happens.
