    sss these arent flavas o.o
    though they are very closely related...
    my flavas are a bit behind schedule, all of the open pitchers are nothing like they were last year

    I have a Flava Ornata by Oreaphila Sand Mountain that looks just like that. It has the short curved phyllodia as well as straighter ones and the pitchers look like a very stocky Ornata. Nice find though. Hope it does well for you.

    i found a near exact match to the plant, may be from a grower in another country but the markings and shape are identical
    these are from Cedric aka Napp, i would have to say thats a dead ringer...im pretty positive it IS an oreophila now.

    Spoke with the person who is the source of this plant
    he says he got about 4 or 5 different clones about 15-20 years ago, and since has been growing them by the seed he is producing from these plants
    he asked if it had a number on the tag, and i told him it did not, so he has verified that is is one of his seedgrown plants that he sold to someone who then in turn sold it to the nursery i picked it up from.
    i described the plant to him, and he did say it is an oreophila, he has been trying to breed to an oreo with a purple throat with his selected plants over the past several years, this is just a really colorful, really interesting specimen.
