    I stole what Phil and I both think is an S. Rubra from his green house this weekend... what set it apart, and caught my eye, or more importantly, my finger, was that the entire plant is velvety to the touch.

    Is this common? I have never seen it before. From tip to rhiozome, this plant feels like cheap velvet. very cool, and very pretty.

    There is a form of S. alata called pubescens which has fine white hairs covering the plant.

    Maybe you have the first S. rubra pubescens. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/biggrin.gif[/img]

    the one i ordered from pft is just like that
    it's a rubra allright .

    i just thought rubra's were like that .

    i would take a pic but i doubt the hairs could be seen
    it's just like rampuppy described .. ?

    is it an alata on accident ?

    either way i love it , took a while to get but i think that just makes it even more kool , i was looking forword to it for all the growth point 's .
    when i got it it had them and was even fuzzy!!!!!.


    is it a mutant ?
    patient happy customer!!!

    S.rubra 'alabamensis' and S.rubra 'wherryi' very commonly are "furry" to the touch.

    Hi Rampuppy,
    The way to tell which rubra it is is the alabamensis spring pitchers are 'S' shaped and the wherryi pitcher normally do not exceed 6" high. Likely the plant you have would be the wherryi as most of mine are fuzzy like that..
    Best Regards
