    This plant is a S. jonesii. Mike King had the closest guess (or multiple guesses). That's okay, I like it when people go thru their thinking process.

    Hi Emesis,
    Trying to tell apart rubra subsp. seedlings is almost impossible. Their morphological differences are only really possible when the plants are flowering size. It is a bit like trying to tell whether or not one has the yellow flowered form of rubra wherryi and posting a picture of the plant without the flower! The fact that some seedlings are so alike.. Even S. alata was even thought of as a yellow flowered variant of s. rubra subsp. jonesii! I would love to invite you to England to see my collection, hide all the labels and get you to name them! That would be some fun!

    In short, with seedlings it is too tricky to even hope to name accurately, better would be to use mature plants, though the guessing game was fun!
    Best Regards

    Mike King,

    I wish my plants were bigger, so it would make the identification task easier. I don't have the patience to wait a few more years until the plants where mature enough to be identified easier.

    Thanks for the Sarracenia identification quiz offer, but I don't know the plants half as well as you do. Until then, I'll keep brushing up my skills. Cheers!
