    Thanks for the quick reply Spectabilis. I dont think those are windows more likely water drops as it was foggy when i took this picture and you see no windows on the back of the left pitcher. I think Purpurea x Flava is a good guess though, thanks!

    Edit: Bah now im seeing them to maybe i need to start paying better attention to my own plants [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/tounge.gif[/img] but dont you think if it was minor the hood would hang more?

    See ya,
    Jerry

    hmm... Maybe its a ([Sarracenia purpurea x flava] x [Sarracenia purpurea x minor])

    EDIT: Definately has minor in it. Look at the peristome, how its "beaky" shaped

    It isn't easy getting an ID off a picture, but I looked at this for a while, and it still looks like S.X catesbaei to me. Not a very colorful one, but very nice in its structure. Put that in full sun, and I bet it would color up beautifully. Spec, I think you're wrong---again---I see no minor influence in the hood, or anywhere else. This is purely S. purpurea X S. flava = S.catesbaei

    Thumbs down

    [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/mad.gif[/img] why must you, and a few others, go around and pick on me? [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/sad.gif[/img]

    Take a closer look. There are windows on the pitchers. HAS to have some kind of minor in it!
