    I would assume those are cultivar or "pseudo cultivar" names.... Properly written S. 'Farnhamii' and S. 'Mitchellian' if they are registered cultivars. I've never head of them either.

    Very pretty plants though. Thanks for showing them. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img]

    S. x mitchelliana is a hybrid (leucophylla x purpurea)
    S. x farnhamii is (leucophylla x rubra)

    Most of the hybrids with latin or latin-sounding names are natural hybrids that were originally thought to be species.
    Both look like hybrids I'd enjoy. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img]

    Yeah...I was wondering if the "Mitch" was a leuco x purp. I have one but the color is normally red rather than green.

    Nice plants though fer sure!

    I find them all just as easy to look after as each other. S. leucophylla does require the highest light levels though, or the pitchers can become weak and phylodiform.

    S.x mitchelliana is a cross between purpurea and leucophylla. S.x farnhamii is a specific dutch cross between S. rubra ssp.? and leucophylla. Any other hybrid between these two is usually called S.x readii, which is a bit of a confusing situation.

    Go and look on theCP Photo Finder for photos of all the hybrids.
