    I received what was supposed to be a Sarracenia flava - HV. The plant was small and the pitchers did have some red veining in them.
    Now that they have been getting bigger I started to wonder if that's what it is because the lids have white on them. I do not think any flava has white, do they?
    Also, the neck looks wider then a flava. Again this is a small plant.
    I can post a picture if it would help.

    Sounds like its of hybris origin, a picture would be helpful.

    Well it sure isn't S. flava. What's the HV mean?

    Alot like S. leucophylla but doesn't look like pure S. leucophylla to me either.. and that's about the extent of my Sarracenia knowledge lol.

    Is that a Nepenthes in your pocket or you just happy to see me?

    Heavy Veined

    It looks like S. leucophylla to me, but I thought it would have more white down the tube. Then again it is a small plant yet. The largest pitchers is 8 1/2".

    When I recued a few of those from Home Depot last year, being ne to the hobby, I pored through S. G. and determined that they were flava as well. Now, having themoutside and getting beyond stress and etiolation, i came to the conclusion that they are leucophylla. Gee, it kinda looks familiar...

    It looks like a pure leuco. Wait for the plant to mature to verify
