    Sarracenia alata
    Sarracenia flava
    Sarracenia Leucophylla
    Sarracenia oreophylla
    Sarracenia purpurea
    Sarraceina minor
    Sarracenia psittacina

    And there are thousands of variations, subspecies and crosses [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html312/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img]
    I have a detailed post on how to self pollinate flowers, let me see if i can find it [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html312/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img]
    Actually John , there are eight (8) species [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html312/non-cgi/emoticons/biggrin.gif[/img] , unless you consider Sarracenia rosea a new species but even that being said horticulturist still want to separate these plants to even more spcies , for exaple : s. alabamensis .

    Well I would say your plant is mature as its flowering.

    Hmm,,,my sarracenia's flower bud is starting to open. Is the flower (bud)supposed go red after some time, or is the "red pigment because it was too close to the light? How much light does a sarracenia have to receive to stay healthy , in and out of the flowering period? (assuming it was healthy in the first place [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html312/non-cgi/emoticons/wink.gif[/img] )

    Can anyone reccomend a reliable website which deals with sarracenia questions like humidity and water at all times, even when flowering?

    Thanks,
    Jason

    By the way my sarracenia flower's petals are red in colour. Does this help with the sarracenia species identification?

    Thanks,
    Jason

    If the whole flower is deep red, then you probably have a S. leucophylla (white topped pitcher plant) or a hybrid with leucophylla as a parent. S. purpurea also produces red flowers, so you might have a hybrid with purpurea as a parent. S. rubra and psittacina sometimes produce partly reddish flowers.

    During the summer sarracenias should be well drained but constantly moist.
