    i brought this sarracenia from my local garden shop , it came from the booman floral company . I am not sure what species this sarracenia is but all i know is that its not a hybrid and its either an alata or rubra , rurbas and alatas look very simalar . i looked on the interent to see if there were any ways to id this plant , that was'nt much help and i looked at a few books , not much help either although the book Carnivorous Plants of the United Staes and Canada was very informative . so how can i tell the difference , the plant right now is 12 inches , it is red on the outside a lil and has some red venation in the inside too . do i have to wait til the plant flowers to figure out because i do know that rubras have red lfowers and alatas have yellowish green ones half the height of thi pitchers .

    is the pitcher a greener or more pale color? Is the hood sorta flared, or covers the opening? How do you know its not a hybrid? These can help a little bit,

    My guess on facts would be rubra, but a picture would make the final decision.
