    or the second type could be a psittacina?It looks lie one to me. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/wink.gif[/img] But the first is definetly a S. Purpurea Purpurea, look at the red by the "lip" on that one, it has to be a Purpurea Purpurea.

    The wriglyana catches things by creatures entering the beaked section of the pitcher and ending up in the dark. There it will see the light shining through the small opening and enter, thinking it's an escape route. Which it isn't [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img]

    Well, my Purpurea ssp Venosa has lots of red coloration....ssp Purpurea is usually deep purple...also the pitchers are much narrower...

    Um sorry purpurea will have coloration regardless of the form (except heterophylla forms). Here's my Venosa (red lip because of abundant light).

    Here's a purpurea subsp. purpurea. Red lip also but it is more of an all red on the pitcher not JUST the lip. (I think they should rename this form of Purpurea Purpurea S.Purpurea subsp. Purpurea f. Atropurpurea. <!--emo&[img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img] )

    I wrote to the Nursery that was on the care tag and just heard back from them (see the following), on a side note never knew they make steroids out of fly traps:

    Wriglyana, and Ventircosa are two of them. Rubra instead of Venosa. I am no expert, but the lab we purchase the tissue culture from calls it Sarracinea Rubra.

    We also sell Venus Fly trap, the hybrid name is "Dente". The lab also produces by tissue culture the Fly Trap that is native to the Carolinas. However most of them are used to produce a natural steroid for horses.

    White Rose can supply you with both varieties of Venus Fly Trap. Additional varieties will be available in 2003.

    Thanks for your inquiry.

    My 2 cents:
    The top pic is purpurea venosa.

    The bottom pic: definitely a psittacina hybrid. most likely wrigleyana (leuco x psitt). needs more light though. the pitchers should be mostly red with white spots if it is wrigleyana.
