    Sarracenia catesbaei ? or.....

    OK -- I am reasonably certain that this is a catsesbaei but I have seen pictures of similar plants that include oreo in it. So any thoughts are appreciated

    I can see where your oreophilla guess came from, ie the hoods of the plant are well defined and not as wavy as the traditional catesbaei. However while purpurea does not have too much variation, flava does and certain traits seem to be more consistent within certain variants than others-- for example, var. cuprea seems to have tighter, circular lids and thicker lips. It wouldnt surprise me if a flava cuprea was crossed to make your catesbaei.

    at the risk of false humility, it's just making observations and trying to put two and two together. sometimes it works out...other times you get blasted...

    This plant looks more like oreophila x purpurea to me.
