    There are supposed to be 3. pft.com describes the set as a leucophylla, wrigleyana, and Judith Hindle. Should the difference between a young leucophylla and a young Judith Hindle be very obvious?

    I guess I'll shoot them an email and get their opinion.

    The Judith Hindles will be out of tissue culture and to all intents and purposes, mature. The pitchers look different from leucophylla as they have more red and larger hoods:




    If you have only 2 plants in your pot, send PFT an email. I'm sure it's just an oversight.

    It should be easy to simply count the crowns (growth points) of the individual plants. Do you count 3? If so, take a photo of the pitcher of each.

    S. x wrigleyana is easy (it is the beaked one). Then the other 2 are the ones you need to separate into S. leucophylla and S. 'Judith Hindle'.

    For more photos of these, see

    So it looks like Judith Hindles weren't available when they made the set, so they substituted a leucophylla for it. I was hoping for more variety, but having two leucophylla is not so bad. It just means one more plant to buy next season...

    BTW, they replied to my email very quickly and professionally. Their customer service is definitely top notch.
