    Rubra ssp. alabamensis doesn't have veins on the top of the lid like that. Its also slightly pubescent and has very faint areoles. And like the entire rubra complex the pitchers never get leathery.

    Your two options are Sarracenia flava and Sarracenia oreophila. You've never owned an oreophila so its a S. flava!

    I guess I'm just going to have to keep an eye on it and see what becomes of it. Thanks for the inputs.

    I agree with Oreo too. The lid and the veins are just hard to read. Lid wise I say Oreo but the veins are to defined. Maybe from flava?
    Alabamensis doesnt have the veins on top but flava does.
    It's hard to rule anything out, I'm just going by looks and that's never a certainty in any case.
    My guess, flava, oreo, maybe rubra

    That's where I've been leaning too. The mouth doesn't have that wide agape look like most oreos, and the back of the neck seems too broad without any backwards curling.

    Alata's pretty variable. I compared the plant in the pic here to some alatas from this site: http://www.johnjearrard.co.uk/plants...ata/alata.html

    There are a few close matches there. I'd also suggest a side view.

    That's three for Oreo. I agree with CP that it looks more like oreo influence in there. The column is slightly thicker at the base and the veining does convey a sense of oreophila to me.
