See You Space Cowboy
i also agree that you shouldnt label it, just put Sarracenia purpurea hybrid, or minor hybrid...its got both of those atleast im somewhat sure, unless its minor by psittacina then flava or something since it seems to have the psittacina clumping complex LOL.
We have the same issue with neps, and its really annoying to see people say
ITS DEFINITELY "insert name" without any knowledge on the plants background, or even saying names of plants that it clearly is not.
So do the CP community a favor and just label it as an unknown hybrid
we dont need anymore misslabeled plants floating around
There is a list somewhere in one of the stickies of known plants carried at Home Depot, but still....
If the picture was only of a leaf and he didn't provide information about where it came from I would say "unkown Sarracenia hybrid". Given that its not seed grown and that it was purchased very recently it narrows down the possibilities dramatically. I am 100% sure that it is a slightly etiolated "doodle bug" or "love bug".
I thought they did not sell any of the bug series at home depot or lowes because they were trademarked names and sold only through a few vendors or something along those lines?
i still would not toss a name on it...
I can't say with any confidence what is is, but I'm all but certain it isn't 'Red Bug.' I have one and when the pitchers are coloring up, there is very prominent red veining on the outside and inside of the pitchers.
EDIT: actually, I'll put a hold on that verdict. When your pitchers color up a bit more, post another pic and show me. Mine has changed its pattern a bit since I first got it. Here's a pic of what mine looked like on day one:
The "Little Bug" series of plants are patented/patent pending/Trade Marked. If it was not labeled as such it is either not the real thing or cloned illegally. Labeling a plant that is not the real deal would probably be a trade mark violation.
Grand Hotel... always the same. People come, people go. Nothing ever happens.
Thanks to you both for the info.
