    cyclopse Hello! From Greensboro, NC.

    Hello everyone, i'm Chad from NC. This amazing forum has been immensely helpful already in the past months that i have started my collection of CP's. It has already become an addiction! I even plan on taking a trip out to the coast and heading to the Green Swamp at the end of this month and seeing some beautiful plants in their natural habitat (hopefully).

    Hard to ID hybrids but do you have good pictures of the S. Alabamensis?
    (edit)
    Particularly, a picture of two of a pitcher viewed from the side- preferably a more mature pitcher if possible.

    1) Can you take a picture of the inside of the hood
    2) and feel the outside of the pitcher tube. Would you describe it as having more of a slight waxy feel or very slightly fuzy feel (or perhaps you can look really closely at the outside of the pitcher tube an see if there are very very small but tightly packed hairs)?
    3) Try lightly squeezing the tube, would you describe it as having a firm feel or a soft feel?

    3) tube feels more of a firm feel than soft

    Hi and welcome to Terraforums! I'm always glad to see more CP keepers around me. I'm just north of you in Virginia. I shop in Greensboro every once in a while. You've got a great collection started. If you don't mind me asking, where did you buy your plants?
