    #1 - I'm pretty sure it's an S. rubra of some sort.
    #2 - definitely S. minor
    #3 - hard to say from pic, could be S. leucophylla or a hybrid with it, perhaps leuco x rubra
    #4 - definitely a hybrid with S. psittacina, I see no fenestrations, so I don't think it's psittacina x minor, maybe psittacina x flava or rubra.
    #5 - can't say just from phyllodia

    Trashcan, Pic 5 is Sarracenia Oreophila. I am 99.9999999999% sure! No other Sarracenia produces phyllodia that are so tightly curved as that. Otherwise it is a Hybrid with a VERY strong streak of Oreophila in it.

    Pic 5 seems more like S.flava to me. I've had some phyllodia just like that from my flava var. cutthroat. If you bought the plant than it probably isn't oreophylla, because it is illegal for someone to sell oreophylla. Info on the source of these plants may help in identifying them.

    If it is Oreophila and you bought it then that person is lucky he/she hasn't gotten caught. I think however that it is probably a Flava now that I look at it more.

    The phyllodia are one of the main forms of identification for S. Oreophila. Flava's may occasionaly produce a curved one, but the majority will be long and straight.
    The following 2 photo's are of my plants to compare the differences.


    S. Flava

    S. Oreophila

    As you can see, the phillodia of both species are quite unique and hard to confuse with each other.
