    Agreed! This will be the best part... whatever they turn out to be.

    Mine exploded in growth when I repotted them in a standard 50/50 mix. Noticed that there were some immature pitchers buried under the moss too that couldn't quite make it out yet so I'm sure that helped those ones develop/

    I'm actually starting to question whether I got a rubra AND something else ("J. Hindle" maybe)...there were two rhizomes in the pot and I'm seeing two distinct pitcher types being formed between them.

    Weird looking.. def doesn't look like purps.

    I guess they could be.. I mean.. I don't know what a completely light starved purpurea looks like that hasn't been getting pure water. I have this purp hyrbid that when I first picked it up, it had the craziest looking non-carn leaves. I really don't know though.

    I must be lucky cause when I went to my local Lowes, everything looked pretty good; could have been timing, but I went back again and everything still looked good. I picked up a purp and it ended up coming with TWO separate plants. That was nice.

    Should be interesting to see what they turn out to be though.. I have heard people getting things that aren't even seen by others at Lowes.

    I've picked up a few "S. purpurea" plants at Home Depot and Lowes,; only one turned out to be S. purpurea, and it was blatantly obvious when I bought it. Some have been what I guess are S. rubra, while others have been S. 'Judith Hindle.' My guess on the two you've got is the latter.
