    Check out the ala on that baby. Looks rather purpish to me.prob some kind of complex hybrid , that is more than 2 or 3 species in the genetic make-up.
    FYIThere is one large wholesaler who calls all pitcher plants, Cobra plants
    Every seed that you plant ,doesn't sprout.
    Every seed that sprouts, doesn't make it to maturity.
    Every cutting that you stick doesn't grow roots.
    Every cutting that roots doesn't grow to a small plant.
    Every small plant doesn't reach maturity.

    My Trader Joes only has stupid orchids.... Not even good orchids just phaleonopsis.
    I don't remember a time when I didn't want to be a police officer... apart from the summer of 1979 when I wanted to be Kermit the Frog.

    I would go with a purp hybrid as well, but something no one has mentioned so far is that it has fenestrations -- so I would think some minor in there as well.

    The lid is not curved over enough to lead me to believe any psittacinia

    So I am going with S purp x minor -- of course it could be a complex hybrid then it is the 'who knows' species

    I used to have a plant just like that. My guess is that it is S. purpurea x (purpurea x minor), because if it were S. purpurea x minor, it would stand more erect because of S. minor lineage.

    I would certainly buy that it is a S. purpurea x (purpurea x minor) -- but it doesn't look THAT recumbent to me.

    It's the same one I got. I'm just gonna label mine Purpurea/Minor Hybrid.
    I regret little to nothing!
