    I have a s. rubra from pft and I really don't know which one it is. There are sooo many types of rubras that I can't even tell which one is which? [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/confused.gif[/img] By the way, mine is getting a brownish color over the pitchers, is this normal? I'll try to post a pic tomarow. Thanx

    Sincerely,
    Erick

    Two things. It looks like your plants are in the shade. They will do much better in full sun. Don't worry about the brown pitchers, they will be replaced by new growth in time. You may already see little pitchers forming at the crown of the plant.

    As far as IDing the plant goes, unless someone knows at the nursery it will be hard to tell what kind it is. If you go to the library and look for Donald Schnell's book "Carnivorous Plants of the US and Canada", second edition, it has a section describing the differences between the species. Even armed with that info it will be hard.

    Ok I guess that was three things. If anyone knows of an easy way to ID rubra species, I would love to hear it.

    Hope this helps. Good Luck and enjoy your plant! [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img]

    Hey,
    To me it looks like S. Alata, rather than rubra, but, they both look alot alike. The browning is most likely a change in climate and sun exposure. Good luck,

    I have the same one from PFT. I think it's subsp. wherryi, but I'm not 100% sure.

    i recieved a rubra from pft along time ago and finally these last couple of months it has produce great looking pitchers , but the problem is that the plant does'nt look like a rubra alot , mines looks more like a leucophylla or a s. rubra gulfensis . your rubra looks like s. rubra rubra but your going to have to wait til it grows more .
