    Unhappy

    This plant came with a tag that is mislabelled (by the CP Database standards). I thought it would be fun to see if anyone can guess what this plant is. Today, I'll post the pictures, and tomorrow I will list the (mis-)label, as a hint.

    Is it a hybrid or species? Looks flava-ish but not entirely. Or at least they don't look quite the same as my flavas.

    I agree with PlantAKiss, it looks mostly like flava i've seen but it seems to have more in it than that.

    I'll guess that the plant is mostly made up of flava but it was crossed with something like purpurea somewhere along the line. The pitchers seem to curve from the base more than other flava plants, which are usually more vertical. Also, the pitcher seems to be wider in the lower part of the pitcher more than usual, other flava plants i've seen are not hollow and more narrow towards the bottom of the plant.

    I would guess either flava x rubra, or flava x (purpurea x rubra).

    The short stature and the shape of the hood make me want to say that it is an oreo. The curvature of the pitchers also points me in that direction as mine looks like that.

    The shape of the hood does look oreophila like. It also seems very bushy, which could be some oreophila trait, but it could also have rubra in there. Could be oreophylla x rubra.

    I agree with Pyro and Alvin, there is definitely quite a bit of oreophila in there, and I would probably agree with Alvin in that it looks like an oreophila rubra cross.
