    . It is probably still to small to make a better ID but it looks like "Dana's Delight".

    Here's the Gubler's 'Judith Hindle' I bought from Lowes soon after I got it and then five and six months later:
    That's exactly what happened. I got it from Home depot. Upon looking up Sarracenia Purpurea on the internet and looking at pictures, it left me with a huge "what the hell?" How was what I had supposed to turn into that? I knew that wasn't what it was and after browsing the boards here for a while, I came to realize that it was probably a Dana's Delight or other hybrid. I just finally got around to asking others to ID it. I've had it since early January I believe. It's been growing under a bright CFL the past few months. I'm thinking about getting another CFL though for some extra light.

    Seeing the similarity to oneself, one should not use violence or have it used.

    There was a time when all you could get in stores were S. purpurea - probably field collected.

    Be thankful you now have a selection.

    Why spend the money to print different labels for a constantly changing selection? Or have to train the summer high school/college paid-by-the-pot worker how do distinguish the plants to label them. Could you even tell at a quick glance that the plant in my first picture was (most likely) 'Judith Hindle'?

    Besides "Dana's Delight" has some S. purpurea in it.
