    I just found out that there is a type of sarracenia growing in the woods around my house. There is a national forest all around us. My husband went to the park ranger office to get a permit for a horse trail ride we are having soon, and they have pictures on the walls of plants and things that they have growing in the woods. One of them was a "pitcher plant". He didn't know enough to be able to id it for me, but he said it was all green, so I'm thinking something like a pale trumpet. I will be keeping my eyes open for it when I go walking in the woods. I hope I can find it!

    Yes, S. Alata is also known as The Pale Pitcher Plant.

    well it says you live in Mississippi so alata is most common there, but it could be rubra or something else possibly

    I have no doubt you have s. alata around your place. I think you are a little out of range for s. r. wherryi, and s. alata is known to be THE pitcher plant in Mississippi. When you find the beast, it should have a prominant bulge in the upper pitcher. I agree with the others-----"I drool for Pics!!!!!!!"
