    New sarracenia coming Monday!!

    Got a new pitcher plant coming Monday, one most may not have heard of, at least I know I haven't. It's called S. x 'purple people eater, an unknown hybrid. The site I am getting it from had this to say about it.

    "This exceptional hybrid was produced by us many years ago. A customer (John Rizzi) who bought one returned to us a division of his plant, but he lost the name tag and we don't know what the lineage of this plant is. It is so impressive that the University of California at Berkeley took samples for their herbarium even though the lineage is unknown! It produces large pitchers nearly two feet high, and the flared hood strongly suggests that S. purpurea is part of its parentage. While this plant won't exactly eat people, it is certainly one of the most purple/reddish plants in our collection! A photo will soon follow.
    Couldn't find any pictures of it or much info on Google, but I am very excited to get it!! Anyone heard of it or have any info on it? It seems to be pretty rare from what I've seen.

    Didn't come today It was shipped via USPS priority mail on Friday, so I would have thought it would arrive today, but it didn't come in the mail Hopefully it comes tomorrow though I am dying to see it!

    Yeah it shipped Friday evening but since I'm on the East coast it might be taking longer. Usually stuff shipped on a Saturday morning arrives most anywhere in the US by Monday, but apparently it needs an extra day to get here. Just as long as the plants are healthy and all I don't mind. I couldn't find any pictures of it so I have no clue what it will look like which is what is so exciting for me.
