    Here's the second new quiz. Sorry for the blurry pictures, but it was quite dark today.

    The plant is about 6 cm/2.75 inches in height.






    What is the species of this plant?

    I'm going to guess leucophylla x rubra gulfensis, since I have one that is young like this one and looks about identical.

    Don't know what it is, but I don't think its a leuco x rubra g.
    I have one and it looks nothing like this one. The lid looks like it may have minor in it.

    Hi guys,
    It is either alata or rubra gulfensis/wherryi or jonesii. There is no way of telling until the plants are maturing, but judging by the quantity of pitchers more likely rubra subsp.gulfensis, but there again could be heavily veined red tubed alata. Too early to make the distinction!
    Reasons are slight buldge below peristome. Hybrid? unlikely as our friend has indicated it is a species!
    Best Regards
