    Bought from Lowes, and just labelled Sarracenia Pitcher Plant (no species).

    Looks like a minor to me, but could be some hybrid. Any ideas? Hope the pic is good enough...

    My guess is 'Scarlet Belle' [leucophylla*psittacina]

    Looking through BobZ's photo listing, mine does seem to look more like a S. x wrigleyana than anything else. It definitely isn't a minor like I originally thought. The newer pitchers are developing that wide, ruffly... what is the term, darn I can't remember... sail on the spine? I'll get another pic when I can.

    Wow, one pitcher looks like it has leucophylla parentage, while the other to have minor parentage.

    It looks like S. x wrigleyana in need of light. Give it direct sunlight and it will color up.

    Nothing like S. minor.

    That's S.x wriglyana.

    Looks exactly like my S. x wrigleyana before I gave it full sun.

    By the way...has anyone else had a problem where the pitchers on S. x wrigleyana wouldn't open w/out help? Mine seems perfectly healthy, but the pitchers just stay sealed shut unless I give them a bit of a squeeze.

    I do that sometimes. They say S. wrigleyana isn't a very good bug catcher, don't say that to mine though. It doesn't know how to read [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_m_32.gif[/img]
