    S. Purpurea? Rosea? It has a large "dewlap"

    What form or variety might this be?
    I don't see them with this large of a "dewlap" that often.

    Haha it does indeed resemble the dewlap of an iguana. That structure is called the "wing" or "ala". While I don't grow S.rosea, I do grow S.p.purpurea, S.p.venosa and S.p.venosa montanta. I've often seen these exaggerated ala in late season pitchers in the fall in several of them. Are these all last years pitchers or does this particular plant hold onto this trait throughout the growing season ?

    It's just something S. purpurea subsp venosa and/or S. rosea seem to do now and then

    S. rosea aka S. purpurea subsp venosa var burkii


    I've not seen enough examples to tell the difference.
    Grand Hotel... always the same. People come, people go. Nothing ever happens.

    They are last year's pitchers but they've been growing like that since I got them in March of last year.

    It looks like you've got a rosea to me. The lip is huge and the pitchers seem to be pretty sizable and tubby. Try to bloom it to find out for sure.
