    Now I KNOW you guys remember my post here about my getting my Purpurea, right? Remember when I said that there is also a different pitcher plant-like thing growing up beside it in the same pot? Very tiny? Well, it's still going strong!!! [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/wow.gif[/img] I don't know what it is, but it's roots are obviously getting crowded by the purp's roots so much that the tiny but tall pitchers aren't even half open before they start dieing. Anyhowees, I got inspired to do something great today. I'm going to seperate this poor little thing and put it in it's own pot and see what it is! It is by no means whatsoever a purp; I'm sure of that. Here, I'll give you the best description that I can: pitchers are tall and curvy and slender, tubelike, with a somewhat purp-like leafy part... as in, it's a half-moon shape leaf that extends from halfway up the pitcher to right below the ''cap'' of the pitcher. The pitcher itself has a sealed, spade-shaped ''cap'' that is closed flat over the opening of the pitcher when it is coming up. Then the ''cap'' rises up, opening the pitcher. It looks nothing like a purp. Could it be some kind of Flava variety? Anyway, I am probably going to take it out of the pot in a few minutes and put it in a three inch pot for the time being and let it grow. My heart is just to big to just watch the poor little thing struggle to survive in that purp pot like that, so I'm giving it its own home!

    So, what do you guys think it is?

    Ok I put it in its own pot! GOD that was hard!!! That's like trying to seperate conjoined twins with your bare hands!!!

    It's kind of limp-looking, since it's three little leaves were used to being propped up by the purp, but otherwise it looks okay. In the process of seperating the watchamacallit from the purp, one of the roots of the watchamacallit was snapped. Will that hurt it [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/confused.gif[/img]

    So, what ya think the little doohinkey is?

    Seedling don't like to be transplanted. And they don't like having their roots pulled apart. I know you had to do it. I'd treat it with superthrive.
    Good luck I hope it makes it. S. wrigleyana are vrey nice plants.

    I think it'll be ok. Superthrive is just rooting hormones and vitimans. It'll help with transplant shock and help it to root.
    You can buy it at almost any nursery.
