    Looks like an Oreo x Flava "veined" to me OR a pure Oreophila that is heavily colored.

    Also Mike the phyllodia are seen in your picture! Look at the bottome near the Oreo's pot. YOu can see them but they are a little out of focus. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img]

    Hi Dustin,
    It is a heavily veined oreophila, the Sand Mountain location and yes you can see the sickle shaped curved phyllodia. It is a shame we all could not see that in the original post as it would have been a dead give away!

    Chris, I don't know if you meant your comments to sound like they did, but they come across a bit confrontational. Some people on this forum have been growing Sarras for decades and have very sizeable collections.

    Hi there UKC,
    You are right, there is from the flash I suppose ( I did not take the picture, but some schoolkids did when the website first started back in 99), but here is a side on view and the sickle shaped pyllodia can be seen. Sorry for the poor image quality, but some investment will be on the way to improve my website pictures! It is amazing what a digital camera can and cannot do compared with the eye!

    Darn you Mike! Now you got me off to wondering what my Oreophila is! [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img] I suspect it is probably the typical form. Althought it does have very pretty veined pitchers (or what it put up so far). I got it from Mike Catalani and he can't remeber what variety it is. He said just wait and you will certainly be able to tell what form it is next year! [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img]

    Hi again guys,

    No aggresion intended just sarcasm. My point of view is exactly that, mine and I did not in any way wish to infer that I have greater knowledge than anyone else who uses this forum. I was asked a question and gave my response that's all. However, I don't expect anyone to agree with what I say or detect the humor in the way I said it (you'de have to be Australian to do that).

    Alvin,

    I am one of those who have been growing sarra's for decades (18 yrs) I was simply trying to express a point of view [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/biggrin.gif[/img] .

    Mike,

    I always thought xCatesbaei to be a naturally occuring hybrid between leucophylla and purp venosa, your thoughts on the subject?
    And yes I did mention frilling. But not on the subject plant. I said that if the plant had the heritage I suggested then it had been out bred to remove the frilling.

    I have both catesbaei and stevensii in my collection and they look nothing like each other, stevensii has long, upright, heavilly veined pitchers that slowly turn a deep burgundy with age while catesbaei has short, upright pitchers with a definate bulge in the center (purp. venosa) and a combination hood that is upright (p.v.) heavilly veined (p.v. and leuco) with some white "windows" as are found in leucophilla.

    Look forward to hearing your response, think I'll go and have another coffee [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/tounge.gif[/img] .
    Chris.
    they walk among us!
