    Identification help

    Hi,

    I bought a few unidentified carnivorous objects (UCOs) over the winter, and now they have enough growth to make a reasonable attempt at identification. Here is the first one:



    To my untrained eye, it appears to be an S.rubra ssp. rubra. It has red flowers and is pushing out a lot of pitchers.

    Here is number two:



    Before the pitchers opened, I thought it was an S.flava since it looked flava-ish and had deep yellow flowers, but now that the pitchers have opened, I think it looks more like an S.alata. To me, it looks kinda rubra-ish because of the size (under a foot), but they all have red flowers, right? So maybe this is just a young S.alata.

    Here is the hard one (for me at least):



    It looks like it has some strong S.flava influence in it, so I'll guess that that is one of its parents. The frilly lid, the height (first pitcher of the season is over 2' tall), and the salmon-colored flower makes me think the other parent may be S.leucophylla, but I don't see any white in the top of the pitcher. What do you think?

    Yeah I think that last one might be a Moorei (FlavaXLeuco).

    I thought #2 looked like a rubra, but with yellow flowers, I figured it was S.alata, unless there is a yellow flowered rubra species out there.
