|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.|

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] )
am i thinking of the wrong plant here?Well I was looking at some pictures, and sadly [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/sad.gif[/img] i am wrong, well we know one thing for sure, that the second is a wriglyana, well anyways, we will find out soon enough,
Grosse Pointe, MI
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.
That is no rubra... Look rubra up on a google image search... You'll see...
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.

He's right about one thing though Parasuco!
He's certainly NOT an expert! [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/biggrin.gif[/img]
If that's a rubra then I drive a Jaguar.
LOL I looked up the Pic and that is funny.
Oh well at least they sell cheep plants... even if they dont have any clue as to what they are selling.
Too bad one of thier cheap plants wasn't an Argentii. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img] [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/biggrin.gif[/img]
"Where'd you get your Argentii!?" "I got it at a Lowe's for 3 bucks, not $300!"
