    Which Rubra Is This?

    Of the various varieties out there, looking at Savage Garden's pictures, I still can't determine which one it is. Do you know?

    Where did you get it?

    Edit: oops that's against the rules.

    If it feels "pubescent" (is covered in peach fuzz) and the pitchers never get rigid its probably S. rubra ssp. of some kind or a hybrid of rubra. S. rubra ssp. alabamensis is very wildly distributed/ cultivated because it is currently in tissue culture. If you got it from Lowe's it might be rubra ssp. rubra.

    Do you have a picture of the whole plant? The overall size and shape of the pitchers are helpful in determining which is which. Also, how long have you had it? Has it flowered? If it's flowering-age but still not more than a foot tall, it could be wherryi.

    I don't remember who sent it to me. It has not flowered yet. Here's another look at the pitcher and the whole plant:

    Reminds me of S. rubra subsp. wherryii, but I've been wrong before.

    That's a pot tag from the tissue culture facility. Hold one of the pitchers up to the light. ssp. alabamensis has very very faint "windows" in the back of the throat.

    Looks like one of the smaller ones to me, but I could be wrong. What's the scale on those photos, Jim? The second one looks like it couldn't be much more than eight inches high, judging by the tag. Looks like the same style tag that my first DeRoos' N. "Alata" came with, actually. I understand that there are some generic rubra hybrids circulating, as well - it could be that your plant isn't specific to one of the named subspecies.
