    Curtis, I decided that you were right and I should simply give in to my impending CP habit and get a pitcher plant. The one I chose seems to be a plain Jane sarracenia, the label said Sarracenia sp., which I was unable to find further information on. Here's a photo:

    It looks like you have a Sarracenia purpurea (I think ssp. purpurea) there, though being unlabeled it could very well be a hybrid.

    It's definitely got purpurea genes in it. Give it care like that of your vft and it should do fine. Good luck with your new addicti.... errrr, hobby.

    Thanks for all the help and encouragement! One last question and I'll leave you alone for a bit- some care sheets for sarracenia say to use only LFS for medium and others say to use the peat mix as well- what do you think? I've got enough of both leftover to do either

    Both should work well, but I've been using a 50:50 peat to sand mixture for my sarracenia. Straight lfs is OK for most bog CP's, such as sarracenia and temperate sundews.
