    I picked these two plants up at Home depot, the label for both of them was identical. In fact Colasanti Farms even labelled a Nep with the same label LOL : Cobra plant (Sarracenia)

    The pictures are not that great but can any one tell me what these are? The 2nd plants pitcher openings are so small and odd shaped I donít know how it can catch any thing?

    the first one is a type of Purpurea purpurea, the second looks like a wriglyana to me.

    One thing for certain, they both need more light. Increase the light slowly though so you don't burn them.
    There's a tunnel at the end of the light...

    I'm willing to bet the purpurea is ssp Venosa, not ssp purpurea (Aren't the vast majority of purpureas sold ssp. Venosa?)

    That is Purpurea Venosa. Purpurea purpurea would have much narrower and redder pitchers. Venosa has the more green with red venation rather than total red pitchers. The hybrid is Wrigliana as that is the hybrid Lowe's carries (or at least mine does)
