    That's definitely D. nidiformis.

    The two sarracenia are hybrids involving psittacina. S. flava x psittacina looks very different from what you have. The hoods open to form massive dome shapes.

    My turn to take a guess. :-). I agree with Wire Man: It's definitely a S. psittacina hybrid. The psitt hybrid with S. flava does look very different, but the hoods don't always open. I have two different clones of the same hybrid, and the pitchers vary on the same plant in the same season. See below:

    Clone 1



    Clone 2


    I don't know the complex psittacina cultivars very well, so it could certainly be one of those. To me, however, it looks very much like an S. alata x psittacina hybrid I have:



    And by way of comparison, below are hybrids of psittacina crossed with two different rubra subspecies. S. rubra wherryi:



    and S. rubra gulfensis:



    This last one (one of my favorites) is a recently-named cultivar: S. 'Gorey'.

    Hope this helps!
    Growing CP since 1975. Succeeding (more or less) since 1990.
