    I just bought a Sarracenia at Home Depot today, cause I'm softhearted, and have wanted one for a looong time now. The container it came in was labeled Sarracenia Purpurea, but it's not...even close. I think it's a flav, with a hybrid cross, but I can't find a picture close enough. Here:



    So anyway, what do you guys think it is? This is my first Sar, so, I really don't know other than basing it on other pics.

    Anyway, the real question: When I got it, it was in long fibered sphagnum, but it was drier than bones. I brought it home quickly and got it into a decent sized 4 inch pot ( it was 2 plants in a 2 inch pot) and put it in my terrarium. Now, I don't know if I should grow it outside. After advice in another topic, I recently moved my VFT's outside. I live in Seattle, will this particular Sar survive outside? If so, how so should I pot it? And will the wilted pitchers (about 10 total) recover from the damage done by the dry media?

    I know you can't tell very well, but the pitchers are pretty dry and wilty.

    Do you think it is a flava hybrid? I just put them outside with my VFT's and looked at your place, Buggy. I figured that's what I would have to do to them, but I just wanted to get them wet as soon as possible. Do they look purperea or flava?

    looks like a S rubra or S minor hybrid to me

    I'm seeing the fenestrations and contours of some leucophylla.

    BTW, welcome to TF!
