    Smile Same or different species?

    Hi everyone,

    First of all, I'm new here and it is sooooo awesome to become a member of this forum.
    So I bought a baby Sarracenia from a ebay seller, and she was kind enough to give me an extra one as gift. I planted them side by side, and they finally showed some sign of growing! According to the seller, these two should be the same species (which she didnt know what species of sarracenia they were, she said they might be hybrids), but one is much younger than the other.
    Well, interestingly, their new emerging leaves showed completely different colors, one is red (the bigger individual) and the other is kind yellowish green, so I'm kind confused now if they are really the same species (the fully grown leaves also look a little bit different to me). What do you guys think? Plus I'd really appreciate it if anyone can actually identify the species! Thanks!

    The picture embed in the post isn't working, but I was able to copy the URL and view it. Those plants are way too small to tell exactly what they are and how similar they'll be when they are adult size. Sarracenia can change quite significantly as they mature.

    Plants appear to be seedlings, the one on the left is younger then the other. Very young Sarracenia tend to look similar. Coloration depends on environment, genetics and maturity of the plant.

    What moss do you have them planted in? It doesn't look like Sphagnum to me.

    Same here, it's just the little symbol that tells you that there's supposed to be a photo there.
