    If it truly is just a "Parrot Pitcher Plant" then it, with 100% certainty is s. psitticina. That's its common name.

    ...that could be a hybrid though. I don't have any experience with dixie lace.

    It's not S. psittacina, though it looks like a S. psittacina hybrid. I agree with the call that it looks like Dixie Lace.

    I agree with Dominic and V - looks like Dixie Lace to me. Its probably on the pale side due to sub-par growing conditions, as it is with most garden centers. Give it time to get its "tan" in good full sun and it should color up like a Dixie Lace...

    Okay... it's an American pitcher plant, in obviously subpar growing conditions...

    Seriouisly, I've got wriggleyanna, psitticina, scarlet belle, and a few that have lost their ID tags over the winter. They all look basically alike - the minor overbite, reddish, with spots. I hope to get a camera today and take a bunch of pictures.

    Yeah, its understandable that its subpar, i just like pointing out the repeatedly pointed out points rofl. But yeah, my guess would be a variety of Wrigleyana. Since scarlet belle is a var. of Wrig, it could be anything, but im kinda starting to think its not a DL.... Idk. we will see when you get better pics.

    Jim -

    Definitely S. 'Dixie Lace.' This is WAY too green in the upper pitcher and hood to be S. 'Scarlet Belle.' Plus the hood shape of the few pitchers that have opened doesn't resemble 'Scarlet Belle' either.

    This is a textbook-looking S. 'Dixie Lace.' I would send you a link to a picture of one on my web site, but I'm not allowed to do that. E-mail me if you would like the link...

    Regards,
