    Spec, you're not wrong, but inexpierenced which we all once were and still are, CPs are vast and there is much exploring left to do...it may never get finished. Do you know how much personal expierence Bugweed has with the genus Sarracenia? Aaron (sarracenia) also is a Sarracenia expert I say. These folks pretty much know what they are talking about, not that you don't, because you are quite knowledgable in CPs, but many of your claims are very quick and you don't take time to think out replies...rather post them, then edit or add another reply right after it. Sarracenia hybrids (simpler ones) can be identified usually by any average grower, more difficult ones require more expierenced growers to have a shot at them because many parents influences can be expressed, but in almost undectable traits. So take in heed advice and use it.
    By the way, your "joke" was quite serious towards Bugweed.

    Exclamation

    I have nothing to say about your post... Its completely true. But I didn't mean my "joke" to be very serious, or directed *too* much at bugweed...

    I'm sorry for any misunderstanding caused by my "Joke".

    I am also leaning toward the leuco x purp. I to am very curious about the lack of color in the mix. How long have you owned this? Can't wait to see the flower.
    I am just like a Super Hero, but without the power or motivation.................and the funky suit.

    Hi Copper,

    I've had it about 2-3 years and it has not flowered yet but I do wish it would.

    See ya,
    Jerry

    I am no expert, but I thought leuco x purp also. Is it possibly with the "heterophylla" purpurea(maybe with a green leuco, too)? The plant's dimensions look right, ie it's not etiolated, so it has some decent light, but that lack of color....

    Regards,

    Joe

    Spec, I don't scream at anybody, but you do have the tendency to jump too fast. I have read all the posts, and yes, there could be leuco in it, but minor would do very strange things to that hood, and there is just no evidence of that to me. I still lean towards the flava influence, but I cannot fault Pyro's observations either. I will say one thing Spec. You do have good knowledge and I have seen you use it well, and I have seen you "die on the vine" because of the inflexibility of your thinking. Spec!! You raise CP!! They continually baffle me, and amaze me, and I have to change my thinking on them all the time because they just won't do what you want, but are quick to do what they want, leaving us confused and perplexed sometimes. Chill out, amigo. This is a learning experience for us all, and I am continually updating my knowledge of these remarkable critters. I will see you at a BACPS meeting someday soon, and maybe we can sit and shoot the breeze, and loosen you up a little. I think personally that you will be a top notch CP man someday, but that comes with time. And lots of it!!

    Looks like a normal S.x mitchelliana to me. Look at this photo, the pitcher on the left is newly open and not coloured up fully. I would say it looks virtually identical to our mystery plant.

    Maybe the mystery plant is S. x trayci?
