    This is one of my FAVORITE CPs right now, because it just sent up some beautiful spring pitchers. I got it in the PFT grab bag sale, and was wondering if anybody could give it an ID for me. I'm pretty sure it has a lot of Leucophylla in it, but that's as far as my inexperience can take me. Here's a bunch of pics.







    Any ideas?

    Really? Do Judith Hindles have such a translucent hood? I have another plant that I thought might be a Judith Hindle (from the grab bag sale), unfortunately it has no decent pitchers for ID right now. It looks nothing like that. Could be though, I'm a Sarr amateur! [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html312/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img]

    Any other thoughts?

    Looks like an S. leucophylla 'red' or in other words S. x "Dana's Delight"

    don't think its 'judith hindle'. Judith hindle's also have a different shaped hood.

    I agree with Goldtrap. That plant looks pretty much just like an almost mature variety of S.leucophylla. It looks *way* to tall to be a Judy.H, and it shares few of the Judy.H's characteristics.

    I agree with DroseraDude. Not Judith Hindle-it's not the right shape and it is too translucent. It may not be a cultivar, but simply a hybrid involving leuco. The fattening of the tube and the somewhat open structure of the lid looks like there might be some purpurea further back in its lineage, and there might be some rubra in there too. There are so many naturally occurring hybrids that look like this-just call it 'leucophylla hybrid' and you're safe.
    Also, S. 'Dana's Delight' is not the same thing as red leuco. It is a cultivar selected from a grex of the hybrid (leucophylla x willisii). True red leucos exist in nature, and there is some debate as to what causes the red coloration. Some botanists believe it is introgression from S. rubra gulfensis.
    Most important, SF, have fun growing it!
